Rated 1 out of 5 by poggs very unreliable
Only buy these drives if you want to keep on losing your data and spending time and effort returning them to seagate.
I've now had 4 drives fail after 4 weeks. each time exactly the same. drive motor spins and locks up so that the disk is not even recognized by the bios.
Dont think I'll even bother putting the next one in my nas. not worth it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by taylora they fail a lot
either they work or they don't.
Out of the 4 purchased 2/50% were DOA. Scan were very good about replacing the dead ones which is extremely useful.
however this is not isolated as i purchased 2 last year and one was DOA then as well.
if they pass the initial power up they seem fine. but i don't think i'll get any more in the future, but whatever i get will definitely come from scan.
So +ve to scan. -ve to seagate.

Rated 4 out of 5 by turbine2 Nice quiet drive for the price
Okay, it's never going to be the fastest of drives at that spin speed but as it's for a NAS (or will be soon) I'm not bothered about that. What I am bothered about though is noise as this is going to be part of a set in a NAS that's on all the time and the current WD drives are, well, noisier. As such, this drive fits the bill as I can't hear it while in use over background noise.
Once I've got another 3 it's going to go into the NAS to replace the WD drives that are in there.
