Seagate Desktop HDD ST3000DM001 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: High capacity, low price.

Cons: Worked great for the 14 months that it worked, but started getting a bunch of SMART errors and before I could get a replacement, it flat-out died taking with it about 1.5TB of my data. Luckily I had semi-recent backups but this is a huge pain. Seagate replaced under warranty, but it's still a big pain to lose a drive.

My employer bought these drives for a while and over 50% of them have gone bad in less than a year. Stay clear of these unless you're running RAID and can tolerate drive failure.

Other Thoughts: Stay clear of these unless you're running RAID and can tolerate drive failure.
