4 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda STBD3000100 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Kit -Retail kit

Pros: Lots of space, sometimes on sale for a reasonable price.

Cons: Bought 3, one just died after 1y 10m of 24/7 service with 2680 reallocated sectors.

Other Thoughts: The other 2 drives running in the same environment have no reallocated sectors, they have a different DOM then the 1 that failed so hopefully they are from a better batch.

Just ordered 2 more to replace and expand the raid array, so far so good.

1 out of 5 eggs*** DO NOT BUY ***

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda STBD3000100 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Kit -Retail kit

Pros: Pros: good value per TB, if the drive worked

Cons: Cons: Drive failed within three days of install. Catastrophic failure, not recognized by any OS.

Other Thoughts: I owned this drive for about 30 months before I ever installed it. Purchased in November 2012 and stored since then. Thought it was a sound purchase at the time, but I'll go back to Western Digital after this experience.

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda STBD3000100 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Kit -Retail kit

Pros: Lots of space. Worked right out of the box. Decent price.

Cons: A bit slower than I'd hoped. Transferring files from another drive took longer than I expected. Though I can't rule out user error. 4 stars is probably overly harsh, 4.5 would be fair.

1 out of 5 eggsWorked for about 6 months, then died

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda STBD3000100 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Kit -Retail kit

Pros: At the time of purchase, this Seagate drive had a pretty good dollar-to-GB ratio...a good price. Good amount of storage

Cons: This drive worked for about six months, then died. I was running Ubuntu Linux on it, then it failed to boot yesterday. Yuck.

Other Thoughts: If you visit BackBlaze's blog on their website, there is an article about how they've had an unusually bad experience with Seagate drives like this one. I was really hoping that the failures wouldn't bite me too, but they did.

I ended up purchasing a Western Digital to replace this failed drive, and now get to go through Seagate's warranty process, hoping for the best.

4 out of 5 eggsLasted 18 months

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda STBD3000100 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Kit -Retail kit

Pros: Did it's thing on a desktop that was never turned off and used aggressively, probably could have lasted longer on someone's desktop that used it more gently (a lot of read/writes going on here).

Cons: None really, other than it did die.

5 out of 5 eggsWorking well so far...

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda STBD3000100 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Kit -Retail kit

Pros: Pretty good value, seems to be working quite well as a heavily-used ata drive. It's been running 24/7 for 3.5 months without any errors or timeouts. We'll see if this lasts - hoping...

Cons: none so far

1 out of 5 eggsNo more Seagates

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda STBD3000100 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Kit -Retail kit

Pros: None any more.

Cons: 2 out of 5 drives with sector errors and fails within a month, one of them crapped out on day one.

Other Thoughts: Meanwhile I have older 1TB seagates that were made in Thailand that have been running 24/7 for over 4 years. I even have 14 year old 120gb seagates that still work. Obviously, seagate thinks you're an idiot and is laughing at you for buying these things with a failure rate like I've seen with them lately. Whatever you save buying these turkeys will be down the drain by a factor of 100 in time wasted and data lost. Seagate/Barracuda used to mean something. Now it means cheap, disposable, chicomm garbage. I have over 20 disks spinning here around the clock, most of them are older Seagates. Not any more. Do yourself a favor and don't spend your money on these chicomm wonders. Three days wasted and counting.
