Rated 5 out of 5 by Richard54 Giant disk drive
This Seagate drive was bought to replace an old SATA II drive. It not only replaced it but improved the performance with it's fast read and write times. Recommended I have bought more.

Doing the job. Bought as storage for all my DVDs and 3TB storage is doing the job nicely. Takes a second or two to spin up when called but I guess that's why I bought an eco-drive!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Khrest 2 failures within 18 months
First one failed in warranty and was replaced. Second one failed today after 18 months use. Utter rubbish and will never buy Seagate drives again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ColonelONeill 2.1TB + 0.745GB or 2.63TB
This is my 2nd 3TB Seagate drive, as I am happy with the 1st one so far.
I little bit sluggish compare to the its older brother, but it does the job very well too.
A good all around storage drive
If you stumble upon with the ''problem'', that you are unable to partition the drive up to 3TB (2.63 in real) with the provided Seagate software, don't worries,
use DISKPART, recommended by Seagate
Enter Diskpart through the command window.
Type the following listed in Red.
Run (Alt+R) "hotkey for Run command"
Command Prompt window
Microsoft DiskPart version 5.1.3565
Copyright <C> 1999-2003 Microsoft Corporation.
On computer: PCNAME
This procedure will wipe out a file system, MBR, and signature so that a GPT protected partition can be formated in Windows. -- At the DISKPART command prompt.
Select Disk * (* being the drive that you wish to erase )
Disk * is now the select disk.
Disk * has been successfully cleaned
This will set a partition as active or inactive. Useful for boot issues that cause the PC to hang during POST. Secondary solution to Legacy USB support.
At the DISKPART command prompt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Freelunch Does what it says on the tin
It's a hard drive. It's quiet. It works. Well, three weeks and counting. More important is Scan's service. The drives came the next day, I had frequent emails to keep me up-to-date with the delivery and they arrived when Scan said they would. Can't say better than that.
