Not worth the money, save up for an SSD 9/18/2020 10:42:04 AM

Pros: It’s great for the price to have 2 terabytes for the price. It’s very easy to install. Very good as a storage device for games.

Cons: You’d be better spending this money on a 500gb ssd because of how slow this hdd is. It is not 6 gb/s and downloading games onto this takes an extremely long time.

Overall Review: I would only recommend this as a storage device if you’re running out of space on an ssd, it will work perfectly for that purpose. As a man drive, it works too slow to be viable.

Great product, fits in my pc perfectly. 9/18/2020 9:31:03 AM

Pros: Fits perfectly into the tray and works as intended.

Cons: My biggest complaint about the previous 2tb option from barracuda was that it was too big. However, with this new drive it fits in perfectly, no issues.

Overall Review: I would definitely recommended this if you're looking for a cheap two terabyte option in hard drives. I personally got this because I needed extra space to put things that I wouldn't put on my SSD, works perfectly for that.

This is an SMR drive, very slow write speed 9/18/2020 7:46:46 AM

Cons: -SMR Drive
-Slow write speed
-Not labeled as SMR drive
-Product description doesn't match item
-Deceitful

Overall Review: Wouldn't recommend this product. The drive is an SMR drive that has terrible write speed. The drive isn't labeled as SMR, this is false/poor advertising. Shame on newegg for lacking proper description and ensuring customer knows what they are purchasing. Will not purchase another. Going to keep because I don't want to deal with returning etc. I hope it lasts reasonably well.

If you end up regrettably purchasing this drive, make sure you have backup of whatever you store on it, thats what I'm doing.

Do better Newegg, include whether a drive is SMR in the product descriptions. This is very deceitful.

DOA 9/17/2020 3:47:41 PM

Pros: NewEgg was very helpfull with the return process.

Cons: I put the drive in the Sabrent USB enclosure and nothing......
It was sent back to NewEgg the same day it came in.

(I may change this review depending on the outcome of when and what condition the replacement drive arrives.)

This is the first Seagate I have bought in a year and the very same thing happened to that drive. Based on these experiences and aggravations I'm thinking it will be the last.

Overall Review: There is nothing to say, no drive, no nothing.
