I used this in a NAS which is not used continuously so did not really warrant a red drive. The drive performance exceeds the NAS so not used in a performance situation currently but more a near line backup and file store.
This is an excellent purchase for someone looking to increase their storage. It can be had for VERY cheap, especially on sale. The HDD is fairly reliable compared to similar price bracket drives. As well, it's faster than the similarly priced WD Green drives.
Hard to complain about getting 3TB of 7200rpm disks for less than $120 each. I bought two of them and setup as RAID-1 data array to help protect from the inevitable hard drive failure (supplemented by a smaller backup drive and off-site backup). I find them very speedy in this configuration - faster than my previous 7200 rpm drives. I can't comment on using them as a primary disk - I rely on an SDD for those duties.
I ordered the 3TB Seagate and it arrived dead on arrival DOA. VERY frustrtaing for them to be selling this product as this. Yes I did email them with the problem and the typical response was to try it in another system etc etc which was done and emailed back to which I NEVER received a response back.
Parfait pour un besoin de stockage additionnel ; j'utilise ce disque dans ma machine depuis 5 mois 24h/24h et aucun problème à signaler. Tous mes disques durs sont des seagate et je n'ai jamais eu de problème avec.
I was searching a good affordable drive (3TB or More) to have like a backup disk on my computer. The drive was formatted in GPT to use the full 3Tb. Once in a While when I was installing applications on it, it was becoming offline and there has no way to start it again but to powercycle the computer. I tried updating the Firmware, because I remember what was happening back in the days with those Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 . The firmware was updated but the drive still wasn't working. I called seagate to have an RMA since my order was older than 30 days, they ship me a ''repaired'' drive and it still gaves me errors when I was trying to write on it. I removed the drive, put it on a Cradle on an other PC and surprise!, the disk wasn't initialise, which means that I was unable to read the hard drive on another computer. And if I put back the cradle on the main computer, the data was back... very very strange. Seagate told me that the product I originaly shipped was not faulty at all. I was very frustrated I waste about 3 days of work with this product, I just want you guys not to make the same stupid mistake has mine. Last time I tried a seagate product with issue, I told me that it was the last time for life, looks like I should have listen to me! If I was able to give -5 stars it will be my score for this awful product.
