Seagate 3TB Performance SATA 3 Hard Drive ST3000DM001 7200rpm with 64MB Cache SATA II Compatible
Rated 4 out of 5 by 38 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. 23 October 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by 3TB SATA NAS drive Drive went in NAS to replace a failed drive. Worked immediately and has been fine since. Great cost effective replacement. 16 October 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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 26 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. 24 September 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Disappointed 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. 04 September 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by 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. 20 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. 27 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Value for money Although not exactly a TRUE 3TB Drive ( Drive is actually 2.72 TB ) the drive is great for back-ups I had several WD 1TB drives previous, and EVERY ONE failed at 76% capacity. Upon installing this Drive, my system managed to recognise one of the failed drives, so it was a simple solution. Took 4hrs to transfer the 751GB data to my new drive Which also means I have another (albeit limited) 1TB drive This Seagate Drive is fast, reliable and quiet As a test, I filled it to capacity. Or as far as I felt comfortable with, given previous experience. I chickened out at 96% capacity I have always had a strong belief in not filling a drive past 80% Capacity. This leaves enough room for any Maintenance you need to do eg Defragging the drive But if needs be, you can be assured with this drive that you can use the full space 19 July 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'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: 
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: 
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.

Answer: 
That is pretty much the set up I use. I format the disks with Apple Disk Utility. I use Sonnet enclosures (4 hard drives in each) and have gradually had to go from 500Gb drives to 3Tb. The enclosures use a eSATA connection so not sure how this will work with latest Macs.

Answer: 
Obvious question - what OS are you using i.e. do you have native support for disks over 2TB in capacity?
Assuming your OS is ok, the downside of RAID 1 is that you 'lose' the capacity of 1 disk. I'm assuming that the RAID 1 would be in a PC or were you looking at a 2 bay NAS?
Have you considered a NAS with 3 (or more) disks running RAID 5? Proportionately you'll have more storage space from the disks. But NAS units with more than 2 bays tend to be relatively pricey compared to a 2 bay unit.

Answer: 
Ran them in a RAID 10 environment and they worked well until 1 drive started giving errors with less than 2 yeas use. If this is to be your sole source I would recomend going to RAID 10 and/or keeping a second inferior backup that you update occaisionally for safety.
If the NAS/Raid is not important then you could go for a couple of 3,4 or 5 TB USB3 externals and mirror them manualy
