This is not a 7400 rpm hdd. Product listing conveniently doesn't list the actual 5900 rpm at which the Seagate Video 3.5 spins. I'm disappointed. If this weren't an emergency, temporary, stopgap replacement drive for my failing PC data drive, I'd be more irked.

AMAZON: update this listing to reflect the unattractive specs of this drive. Buyer beware.

Pros:
Cheap

Cons:
Misleading product page doesn't disclose very unattractive specs.
SLOW spin. :(

worked just fine for over two years(warranty period), and then just a few months out of warranty, BOOM, failing linear, butterfly, and random reads. In 20+ years of computer ownership its my first failed HDD, so maybe I'm just spoiled, but I definitely wasn't happy with this bit of "fun" that I had to go through. Should have gone with my first instinct and spent the extra money on the WD Black series.

This hard drive crashed after only a few months of operation. The disk drive will not boot. While I am generally satisfied with Seagate products, I am rather surprised the the disk failure so soon. I have a Seagate 4tb hard drive as a backup hard drive, and that is going strong. I just ran the Seagate tools on this drive and it came back with read errors on the drive all in the boot sector. Thus the reason the disk drive won't boot. This seems to point to a hardware problem rather than a software (i.e. a virus) problem. I purchased this drive in March 2015. This new drive was to replace a 2tb hard drive (also Seagate) I had for three years, but it began developing bad sectors, indicating old age and possible imminent failure.

I don't blame the manufacturer. Hard drives do occasionally fail, and all hard drives, given enough time will fail eventually. That is the nature of the beast. But I figured I had a good five years, maybe more, out of the drive, if this drive was brand new. I am not unacquainted with hard drive failures. I have had a few fail over the years. However, I have hard drives of all different makes and models including Western Digital, Seagate, and a few others, in a number of computers, and most of them are still going strong, and some are even as old as fifteen years old, with light to moderate usage. So I am really surprised at a failure so soon.

If Seagate sees this review, I hope to get in contact with them. I already purchased a Western Digital high performance drive as a replacement for this failed drive, but I am hoping that I can get a refund of my purchase price.

Installed in a computer I built for my dad. Works like it should and has plenty of space for all of his files.
