Rated 4 out of 5 by Distance 1st drive doa
I've bought this drive before and already had one before I ordered this one. The new one was dead on arrival. I got a replacement which was fine but it took over a week to get a new one. Considering I chose scan because I "saved" a pound on next day delivery I wish I had got it from another site. I see scan has an extra fee to pay for insurance on an order in case an item is doa. If I buy from scan again then I'll take this extra fee in to account on any price comparison.

Drive went in NAS to replace a failed drive. Worked immediately and has been fine since. Great cost effective replacement.

Rated 3 out of 5 by lyonacre Cheap for size but worried about reliability
Bought these 2 drives as replacements for drives that were reporting bad sectors in my home NAS (not bought from Scan). The worry is that the NAS and drives are less than 2 years old. Bought 2 spares in case a second drive failed.
Contacted Seagate who accpeted the faulty drive back and replaced it with a refurb unit under warranty.
They are good value for money but I have a niggling doubt about longevity. Only time weill tell.
By the way, running them in a Thecuse N4200ECO

Rated 5 out of 5 by ric48 Good Drive. No issues
I've bought 2 of these now, and haven't had a failure in either so far.
They're quick and quiet, and Windows 7/8 works fine with them.

Didn't realise that Xp dosen't support drives greater than 2Tb. Wasn't able to set-up as 2Tb + 1Tb as claimed by Seagate. Now gathering dust until I have to upgrade my operating system sometime in the future.

Rated 1 out of 5 by mathew step away from this model if you value your data
Tonight was the mark of the 5th drive to smart error and go bad. all 5 drives since November have had the very same thing happen all the time. I will not buy another model as there seems to be a drastic issue that seagate must know about by now.
each time, ive probably spent 3 days rescuing data and twice ive lost around 400gb as it no longer would work.
dont come near this drive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SlackSimon Happy - Great Value for Huge Amounts of Storage
I can remember when getting a new HDD was so expensive it almost required a call to your bank manager! Been using this new Seagate 3TB for just over a month now - so far,so good.
Had no problems setting this up on Win 7 Home Prem 64bit with UEFI BIOS - Windows was able to utilize the full capacity without me having to do anything special. It is fast, quiet and offers more capacity than I am sure I will need for a long time to come.
I have used several different incarnations of Seagate drives over the years - never had any issues with any of them. So far...
All in all - Vast amounts of storage at a very reasonable price.
