2 out of 5 eggsOne out five DOA, outside 30 day return to Newegg, Seagate return packing requirement is more than Newegg does

This review is from: Seagate Desktop HDD ST3000DM001 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: 4 out of 5 passed SeaTools tests

Cons: Have to keep spares on hand for Black Armor NAS-440 since it tends to fail drives regularly. Recent desktop ST3000DM001 are more expensive than ST3000VN000 (NAS, but not qualified for my NAS). Most recent shipment of 5 was in Seagate factory multi-pack that had been torn in half and was rattling loosely in the Newegg shipping box. Had been stored, but decided to test after hearing of recent bad shipments.

Other Thoughts: If discounted sufficiently, worth buying in large quantities; otherwise nothing reasonable out there.

1 out of 5 eggsVery disappointed customer : added some info

This review is from: Seagate Desktop HDD ST3000DM001 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: when it was working I liked the data transfer speed was decent

Cons: this drive has a high failure rate, tons of complaints online about it failing, I had mine little over year and now its failing, seagate will send me another one under warranty but Im not too happy about that cause this model drive is defective and unreliable I dont really want another drive thats going to fail again after a year, I have a seagate barracuda been reliable lasting on 7 years now so you can imagine my disappointment with this drive...Buyer beware, Im going to also complain to consumer affairs about this drive, I dont make a lot of money and to me this cost a pretty penny, I feel I wasted $100

Other Thoughts: This was my original review since then I have gotten a replacement and about 3 weeks later it failed too, it would unmount in windows and my backup image failed to restore failure to read from source drive. A 5 hour run of chkdsk did nothing..I do not like this drive and wish I got something different even if it was a few bucks more but something I did was downloaded the seagate diagnostic tools for windows and ran a quick scan, it did not report any problems but it must of fixed something because immediately after my drive was not unmounting anymore and my restore worked perfectly.I do not recommend this drive to anyone but just thought I'd share my experience so it might be helpful to someone else with this problem.

2 out of 5 eggslasts 3 years

This review is from: Seagate Desktop HDD ST3000DM001 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: I have 3 of these in my DROBO 5D and they worked well since I purchased on 4/19/2013.

Cons: I have 3 of these in my DROBO 5D and they worked well since I purchased on 4/19/2013. I had one fail almost 3 years to the day and from what i have seen on other reviews 3 years seems to be the failure point. I am anticipating the other 2 to fail pretty soon.

Other Thoughts: I would go with NAS specific drives from this point forward hoping to get more that 3 years. Im thinking WD Red maybe.

Manufacturer Response:

2 out of 5 eggsGot Three years and 2 months out of it!!

This review is from: Seagate Desktop HDD ST3000DM001 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: While it worked it was a great drive, no issues with transfer rates between this and my SSD, no errors what so ever in fact until...

Cons: No warning at all before failure in a desktop that runs approximately 2 hours a day. I would have expected a little longer performance for something with limited use.

Other Thoughts: For the price it's not a bad option, but I'd order extras as backups.

2 out of 5 eggsDisappointing reliability

This review is from: Seagate Desktop HDD ST3000DM001 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Economic solution for a lot of storage. Good transfer rates.

Cons: I have a NAS with four of these that I've had in service for just about exactly three years. At initial install, I had three failures. (Not all at once, one failed, a few days later two more failed.) They ran reasonably well, but I started getting errors on them after the three years were up. I've recently replaced three of the four with the same model, because I'm apparently glutton for punishment. Of the three replacements, one failed at install with a very large number of bad sectors.

Other Thoughts: Bang for your buck, there are better options out there.

Manufacturer Response:

2 out of 5 eggstwo of five bad upon arrival

This review is from: Seagate Desktop HDD ST3000DM001 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: FAST

Cons: High failure rate until you get some good ones

Other Thoughts: Ordered five to up the capacity of my raid array. 2/5 were bad and showed thousands of media errors. Ran seatools against both and failed. The other three seem fine at least.

Shame as I'm upgrading from 4 x 1tb seagate desktop drives that have gone strong for 2yrs now. Also have a 1.5tb seagate drive for backups that's been fine.

I moved in to Toshiba drives for the business workstations i build in anticipation of this type of issue based on the rep of these drives. I've deployed 26 2-3tb Toshiba consumer hard drives that cost the same or a couple bucks less than these and have only received one bad one, though those are a touch slower by about 20MB/s

These do read and write at between 200MB/s and 210MB/s every time. I'll still use them in my home rig for this reason and because I've got them in a RAID-5 AND backed up

5 out of 5 eggsBest value at 3TB

This review is from: Seagate Desktop HDD ST3000DM001 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Works without issue and is cool and quiet. Best bang for the buck for large storage space. Compares fairly well to my Black drive in crystal disk benchmark. (faster reads and writes in large sequential blocks, worse in small random blocks and deep que depth tests)

Cons: Hard drive prices are still in a bubble so there is not much to choose from for a high capacity drive for a good price (except here)

Other Thoughts: Purchased the external model, removed the drive and what do you know, it's the same model as this internal drive but for less money. I saved enough money doing this I'm considering doing it again. This would negate any warranty however. Obviously, I'm very happy with this drive.

2 out of 5 eggsBuilt to Fail

This review is from: Seagate Desktop HDD ST3000DM001 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: It works for a while

Cons: It fails by design soon after the factory warranty

Other Thoughts: Pay a few more bucks for a better drive. 2 eggs for 2 years

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

This review is from: Seagate Desktop HDD ST3000DM001 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Good storage size for the price.

Cons: As the title says. started it up. made a horrible clicking noise. At first my pc recognized it. but as soon as I went to format it, it failed.

Other Thoughts: I've had good luck with Seagate previously. in the process of rma. I'll give more eggs later if my replacement actually works.

1 out of 5 eggs2 Years until Death did we part.

This review is from: Seagate Desktop HDD ST3000DM001 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: So, I purchased 6 of these in April of 2014. 2 years into this install my first one dies for no apparent reason? I use a 3rd party tool that monitors S.M.A.R.T. data and it sends alerts about the health and status of my hard drives. There was no indication the health was going bad on this drive at all and then: BAM! Dead.
I thought quality used to stand for something with a company name like Seagate but now I'm afraid of the other 5 of the 6 drives I purchased all at once are going to do now. Are they going to die soon as well? Just because the software says they are healthy I no longer trust it losing 2.5TB of data I can never recover again. I'm now backing up everything else up with a huge stack of BD data disks with my burner in preparation for this before they drop for no reason like my 1st one did. I didn't think that I'd be buying 2 years of life for what is supposed to last for what I expect at least 5 years or longer.

Other Thoughts: -I would NOT recommend this product to anybody.
-2 year lifespan? Come on that's just not right and I'm not a millionaire that can afford to keep upgrading storage every two years or less to prevent data loss.
-Looks like I'll have to find a vendor that cares about their product instead of shoveling this "Highly Reliable" paperweight out the door without QC checks or whatever it is they claim to do to certify reliability of these drives.
-According to my Newegg account this product cannot be returned because it's ineligible.
-Thanks for opening my eyes Seagate. Next time around I will NOT be tempted by a low price carrot dangling in front of my face.
-This isn't Newegg's fault. They delivered what I paid for in a timely manner and back then all the reviews were highly positive. I can't believe how upside down the reviews are after only two years of being released
-Buyer beware. Don't re-live my lesson here of buying cheap hoping its a good, quality product.
-Now I have to research replacing my other 5 drives before I lose them as well and FAST.
