Rated 5 out of 5 by Docbritten1 2TB Seagate Barracuda 7200
Really hard drives are old school these days with new Ssd and M.2. The thing is there great for the extra storage we require with music and video clip downloads and there relatively cheap for large storage.
I definitely think they are worth the money and believe it or not Scan Computers delivered this to me on a Sunday....Yep Sunday.

To me Seagate have always been associated with good quality hard drives and this is no exception, well worth the buy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by TimN These drives have dropped in quality
Three years ago i bought 8 of these drives and although one did fail initially the replacement and remaining drives have worked well. However two began to fail recently so decided to get replacements - as three years of hard use in two NAS's is not bad considering they are consumer grade HD.
ordered two of these as replacements - unfortunately they both began to fail almost immediately.
OK you can be unlucky - so i RMA'd them and their replacements arrived quickly.
Unfortunately they did not get past an initial disk test with Seagate SeaTools
So that is 7 out of 13 drives that have now failed over three years - hmmm
Ho hum off to Western Digital i will go.....

As a video editor I use lots of hard drives, these particular ones are the most reliable / longest life drives I have used (I've got boxes of failed Lacie and Maxtor ones!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Spaced All good, excellent Scan service as always.
Bought to replace a failed 3TB from the same series which had lasted 3 years. Let's see how these go.

Rated 4 out of 5 by IAMTHENIGHT Fast ,quiet HDD makes a good data drive to pair with a smaller SSD
The 2Tb Seagate 7200rpm is quiet and reasonably fast hard drive that I purchased to replace an aging Samsung Eco 1Tb drive.
I have been using the drive for the past month and have had no problems with it's operation. Simply put it is faster and quieter than my previous HDD and whilst I cannot say how it performs as an OS drive, it seems perfectly capable of it's duties as my Steam game and media drive.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Fryy3k Two failed in the first week
Seagate are famous for drive failures, I have 17 seagate drives, two brand new ones failed within the first week.
Seagate returns are pretty easy to complete, thankfully.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Azman299 Reasonably priced capacity and speed
Scans delivery and packaging was brilliant as usual.
Generally a good product. Already have one of these which is already 3 years strong. This new drive makes a bit of a clunky sound quite often - a little annoying although thus far it seems ok. If I was storing critical system files on it I would probably send it back. Ran CrystalDiskMark and the speeds are fine.
Seagate are known to have higher failure rates than alternative brands. If you're looking for a drive to keep important system files or your OS, I would look into more reliable drives or at least keep regular backups.
