Rated 5 out of 5 by James97 Great product, great price.
This is a great HHD at a great price. It does the job perfectly. 10/10 for the HHD and 10/10 for Scan, as ever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MrBeanz Fine so far - but it depends on longevity!
I bought this drive about a month ago after the second Samsung 1TB drive failed in my desktop. The first failed several months ago and then the backup did the same - both bought from SCAN 4 or 5 years ago when I built my desktop. So far no problems - but this is a basic bit of kit; I cannot say that it is any faster or slower than other drives that I've had and my main requirement is that it just works and keeps on working. Over the years I've had lots of HDDs and most have been replaced because of capacity issues with very few actually filing (the exception being the Samsungs and a Maxtor in a NAS box at least 8 years ago).
So, so far I'm pleased with it - as long as it 'just works'!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SuperSniper So far, so good.
I have replaced a number of drives that are older than 5 years simply because I need to have reliable kit.
Sadly, until I have 4 years of use under the belt, one must assume the best but prepare for the worst and BACK STUFF UP.
I use a disk imaging tool (ToDo) and I keep my images up to date to reduce the laxative effect of a failed drive in a time of need.
I have stored the 'old' drive away just in case I ever need to load it up again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by D3131 Cheap storage from a brand I trust
I bought this hard drive to give me an extra spindle on a testbed ESXI server based on a Dell PowerEdge T110 II, as the addition of an SCCM 2012 Server to the virtualisation server was impacting disk IO heavily.
After having installed the disk and moved only the SCCM Server VM to the new disk, IO is greatly improved, as is the performance of the other VMs on this server.
I've never had an issue with Seagate products, and would say a 1TB disk of this brand, at this price, is a bargain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SimonPenni Great Hard drive!
I got this as i was on a budget and I'am not really good when i =t comes to storage but I know quite a bit. As i said, i was on budget and i couldnt spend the extra money on getting a Western Digital, so i went for this and have had no problems. It is relatively fast and not expensive. Good job Seagate!
