!!!!DO NOT BUY THESE DRIVES!!!!
I have bought 2 of these drives from scan. One started to die after 1½ years of use, I quickly bought another "backup" 3tb drive, not realising it was the same type. Copied all my data over to the new drive, and disconnected it from my machine. My first drive then died a month later, I go to swap with my new drive and that's dead too. Costing my £450 to professionally get my data back. Data man knew all about these drives, he showed me a report he published a month earlier explaining how bad these exact serial number Seagate drives are.

Rated 4 out of 5 by fornoxon Good value but some doubts on reliability
This is a replacement drive to one that failed after 2 years in a NAS unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JSpoon High capacity, great performance
At just under £70 for a 7200RPM 3TB drive, it's a pretty great buy. Plenty of space for storage and is working great in a RAID 0 on my rig

Rated 5 out of 5 by IanB33 Decent performance
Simple non-retail packaging the disc drive just plugs into the power and SATA cables (not supplied). It just spun up and worked - no problems.

Very speedy delivery , good price and packaging was excellent to protect during transit. I will more than likely use Scan again

I can't believe that Seagate have not yet replaced this drive as they have a bad reputation for failure.
I have been through 8 of these drives and everyone has failed within 12 months.
I have replacements from Seagate but as the drives are so unreliable can not use them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lostinlinux Good drive but seems to have a slower response time
a good hard drive so far but does not seem as quick in responding as the previous drive

Good value, replaced 2 smaller drives in a Netgear NAS with these.
Seamless process, no problems, work great.
