Rated 4 out of 5 by 25 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by HDD failed after 18 months This drive failed after 18 months of sporadic usage (less than 1 day per week) in a NAS used for backup of data. The HDD does not spin up, no SMART read back, shows up as removed from RAID - plugging it into a desktop computer shows it is completely dead! Disappointing! 11 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Price for a 3TB Drive Seagate tend to have good quality drives and this 3TB one seems to live up to the standard so far. Good price was the primary reason for buying. The drive does not come formatted so inexperienced users may be baffled and it will need to be done via the disk manager/other as the un-allocated space need to be assigned and then formatted. 09 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great backup drive as you would expect this is a great backup drive ,simple to use and near enough silent.... 31 March 2014

Rated 4 out of 5 by good reliable product I bought two of these to replace failing Hitachi drives (had them for 4 years or so). I have older seagates that are still working well. 08 February 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by What can I say? It's a hard drive. Does the job, hasn't broken... Sometimes it does get quite hot, but then it's not very well ventilated in my case. 04 February 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice Nicely priced, cheapest per Tb so that's why I got it, but came with a daft partition already on it from factory. 29 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fast, quiet, and with a huge capacity It does what it says - it's a 3TB hard drive. Very fast, and quiet at the same time. 14 January 2014

running two of these drives in raid 1?

Hi I am a professional photographer looking to build a solid(safe) mass storage solution. I have the idea of running two of these 3TB drives in Raid 1 (in case of single drive failure) and then having a separate external 3TB HDD drive for backup. Just wanted advice on my idea and if these drives are suitable or if you could suggest the best HDD solution to my problem.

Regards,

Thomas

Answer: 
These drives would work in a RAID 1 configuration giving you the redundancy you require, you could use RAID 5, with at least 3 drives, giving you the benefits of RAID 1 and 0 to give better read/write performance, however as the capacity would increase an external backup of 3TB would not be enough therefore RAID 1 would be your best option in this case.

Answer: 
I wouldn't use these drives, I have had six, none have lasted more than 1000 hours of usage - the drives are warranted for UPTO 2400 hours only.

Answer: 
I've been running 2 of these disk in RAID 1 for a while with no problems.

I just bought another and converted to 3 disk / RAID 5.

RAID protects against a drive failure, but if you're data is irreplacable, having a backup off-site protects against theft as well.

So yes, your plan is sound.

Answer: 
These drives are very good for long-term storage of lots of data. Unlike other hard drives, these don't use many power saving features, so although you get slightly higher power usage, the performance is much greater and the reliability is (from what I have read) also better.

I'm not sure of your idea to put 2 of these in RAID 1 however - RAID is only really necessary if you have critical data that needs to have a very high uptime, like for a web server. For photography, although a problem if the hard drive dies, there is usually some kind of spare storage space around (perhaps on the backup drive?) that can be used until a new hard drive is ready. I would say either use 1 hard drive if 3TB is enough, or get 2 for 6TB of total storage.
