Rated 5 out of 5 by Genx1 Quiet - Fast and Cool !
Bought one of these to replace my ageing Hitachi 640GB Sata 2 drive which had become noisy - although it still works fine being over 6yrs old. I am very happy with the performance of the Seagate drive and how quiet it is (maybe as I was using an old noisy one). I usually go with WD drives but I think they're all similar and any drive can fail at any time. Cloned my old drive to this one with Seagate Disk Wizard (about 600GB) and it only got slightly warm.

Rated 3 out of 5 by PastyCrust Disappointing purchase replaced promptly by retailer.
Bought a pair of Seagate 2TB drives for a new NAS system. Had great difficulties because one drive was defective after zero hours of operation and the NAS could not install it. It was replaced by Scan within a few days. Good service but failure of brand new supposedly high quality drive was most unexpected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NorBdelta High capacity at a good price
Not to much to say at this point, it performs similar to its same capacity HGST counterparts, performance wise. Its currently the cheapest 2TB available, perfect for a space increase or to make your own portable data drive.
It came bog standard OEM with not bits and pieces which was expected.
I can only be a little sceptical at the reliability of this drive as I have experienced high failure rates with Seagate drives in the past with light to moderate usage in a few computers, I wont mark it down as I have not used this model until recently, I will update this review if I experience a failure. I wouldn't risk it to important data storage unless you have a good backup policy. But for general usage it is exceptionally priced.

This was bought to replace a full 1TB drive. The drive is speedy & quiet, giving a read speed of 180MB/s & write speed of 170MB/s. Formatted size is 1863GB.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Nils Would not Format- DOA
Tried this drive in multiple SATA ports, Intel and Marvell ones; and it was always detected in Bios, but when coming to initialise and format for first time use the drive would never complete formatting. The sata ports are not the problem and the drive was getting power to it, so concluded it was doa and sent it back for return. I have bought 3 WDs and none have been doa like this before. Sceptical the next one will be failure free but hoping it will be! Seatools would fail the drive on a short lookup. It never sounded like it was doing anything during the formatting and evidently something was very wrong with it.
