Rated 5 out of 5 by r44flyer 3TB Seagate HDD
Good value, replaced 2 smaller drives in a Netgear NAS with these.
Seamless process, no problems, work great.

Excellent communications. Accurate information. Service as described.
Would you please stop using grey coloured font on a white background?
It is not nearly as legible as black on white.

I am pleased with my purchases. Delivery by DPD is within the hour stated. This prevents one writing off the day to wait for a delivery.
Packaging is good and I will not hesitate to make future purchases with SCAN

Rated 1 out of 5 by Chris000 Too many failures
I bought 2 of these in 2013 and used them along with 4 Toshiba 3T drives in a RAID5 array. Recently when reading some large files I discovered that BOTH the Seagate drives had some bad sectors.
All 4 of the Toshiba drives are flawless.
I could not reccomend these drives, even if Scan were giving them away.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Danie1San 4th drive failure
My 4th drive of this model has just failed (part of a raid 5 array). All 4 drives were just out of their 1 year warranty when failed!
Will buy another and hope it was a bad batch. Any more failures will force me to look at a different manufacturer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Zedexodus Great price. But notoriously high failure rate.
I only write this review as I see this is a hot seller, probably due to the great price for the amount of storage it offers. However it's great price is overshadowed by a amazingly high failure rate.
I have had a few of these drives from various stores. Every one of them has failed. Data released from Backblaze (a cloud storage company that has been compiling data on SATA HDD storage over the course of 3-5 years) shows this drive to have a 40% failure rate. This sounds high already, but when compared to the 2% average failure rate of other drives it sounds even worse.
Seagate make great drives, but this isn't one of them. This drive will work well for a few months, maybe even year. But with a 60% chance of survival it's not worth betting your money on, let alone your personal data.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Frank9000 Works fine, has to stand the test of time though
Plugged it in and its up and running no problems. Can read and write data to it :) and it performs as specified.
If its still running in 5+ years time like my other drives I'll upgrade its review to excellent. Until then it does what it says on the box.

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.
