Rated 5 out of 5 by Aowt Excellent service.
Service quick and well packaged against damage. The product arrived on time and worked immediately it was slotted into my raid backup system. I would recommend scan to everyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Brian67 3TB Hard drive Seagate
well what can you say its a Hard drive only got 4 stars because it isn't a solid state.
it is fast for its size and works well
but Make sure you size it in windows to 3 TB first before splitting it up. windows will only see 2 TB unless you do it first easy to do there is a youtube vid showing you I used Aronis Disk Director
it is big in size and gets warm so make sure you have the space and so it doesn't block your airflow
you can not beat this for the price

Rated 1 out of 5 by TimothyC Purchased 4 of these, All have had a warranty claim
I purchased 4 of these almost a year ago. Today I had to do the RMA for the last one. In almost a year all 4 have failed. 2 failed 6 months after purchase, 1 failed after 10 months and the last after 11 months.
I mark the value as poor, something that keeps breaking has no value.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Limpetwarrior Great value for this size of drive.
I bought this 3Tb drive to replace the failed 2Tb drive in a Zyxel NAS box. This NAS replaced the flakey Lenovo as my home media server for music and video.
Price had limited my previous drives to 2Tb which these days for household media is really not enough.
In a living room environment, noise is an issue and the Seagate is blissfully quiet in the Zyxel enclosure. I can't comment on longevity yet but I have seen Seagates used in domestic PVR's so I have high hopes.
A good big, quiet drive at an affordable price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mark720 Great service, product was faulty, but dealt with swiftly.
The 3TB drive was dead on arrival which was not idea. However we got to test's Scan's returns service for the first time.
This was excellent. It was easy to ship the goods back by dropping it in at a local UPS collection point. Within 24 hours the drive had been received, tested and a replacement ordered - and fed into the normal order process.
New drive worked perfectly upon installation.
Full marks to Scan on customer service when there is a problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fergus Fast, reliable and quiet
I have 2 of these, in RAID 0 and the speeds are around Reads: 380MB/s and Writes: 310MB/s and I've had it running for 6 months now and it's never missed a beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Piotr don't forget to backup!
Couple of weeks ago I woke up in the middle of the night, I was very unsettled as I had a bad dream in which all my data was somehow gone, totally erased, everything, my IP, photos, projects, presentations and most of all my game saves! I quickly looked in the place where my PC stands and asked myself, when was the last time I backed up my stuff, oh right I said, It's been a while. In the morning of the very same day I checked my disks and two of them were almost reaching their capacity. After few days I bought this super cheap 3TB Seagate HDD and was super excited to get "Order Placed" email with an update almost instantly. Then another one "Payment Authorised", and another one "Order Picked" and finally the "Order Despatched" (although I think it is grammatically incorrect as we Dispatch things but hey not trying to be a grammar "enthusiast" or anything) email really made my day. All between 12:59 and 14:43! Soon after that got a txt message from DPD (the courier) that the delivery is on its way and their man, Daniel, will deliver it at my work address between 9-10 am. Surprisingly today at work we had a fire drill alarm and I had to go outside, to the assembly point and then saw DPD van, met the guy and his name was Daniel! Freaking amazing! Loved it! Made my day totally. On the other note I haven't checked the HDD yet so I don't know if it is all right but by the looks of "super professional wrapping" hmmm ;) - thanks Scan people! I'd totally experience the super service again! Cheers all!
Update: the 3TB Seagate HDD came in faulty!!! But got it RMA'd in an instance replacement came in after 5 days! Cheers to all Scan people! Thank you for everything and the best Christmas to you all !

Rated 5 out of 5 by PaulnearBedford Does what it says on the tin
big drive, easy enough to fit, no configuration required (unless you want to partition it, which I didn't) Set up as my boot drive, Win7 64 bit installed in 20mins then about five hours to download/reboot all the Windows and Office updates (I have a slow broadband)
If you need extra space for all those digi photos and videos but don't want to spend a fortune, this drive is great value.
Arrived day after ordering (i.e. next day) with a free backup software key in the box, which I didn't need as I use Windows Home Server but a neat nice to have item
