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.

This is truly a plug and play item. Arrived next day, working within an hour, used as part of the Time Capsule for Mac back-up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gabbie Fast and reliable!
This drive is exactly what you expect. Good fast read speeds allows quick data placement and retrieval. Very happy with price range/ Seagate provide a solid addition to my data storage solutions.
