Product Description

Capacity: 3TB

By now the world knows that Seagate Desktop 7200 drives, from the world's premier storage provider, deliver years of reliable service and high performance. The ideal choice for workstations, desktop RAID, gaming PCs, high-end PCs, mainstream PCs and USB/FireWire/eSATA external storage. After years of pioneering research at Seagate, perpendicular recording is now a proven technology. It increases capacity and dependability by storing data vertically, rather than horizontally. And vertically stored data bits mean increased data density which means higher performance to increase productivity. This drive delivers excellent power savings without sacrificing drive or system performance, giving customers the ability to manufacture PC systems and external storage systems that meet energy savings requirements. Seagate hard drives have long been produced with the environment in mind, and not just with low power consumption. With Seagate and the Desktop drive, our customers can have the best of both worlds, top hard-drive performance and the satisfaction of knowing they are using a high-capacity drive with a very small eco-footprint.What's in the box: Seagate 3 TB Desktop 3.5" Internal Hard Drive (7200rpm) and 2 Year Limited Warranty.

Size: 2TB
UPDATE April 2016
Please note, that Reviews for many very different Seagate drives are mixed together on this page. As such, unless a review specifies which model it is for, it won't necessarily be helpful for the purchase you're trying to make. This review is for a specific 2TB model only. Though it does shed some light on Seagate's general business practices, other drives will differ.

UPDATE January 2014:
Thanks to information from many useful comments, a short update:

1) The problem is still the same as it was. Both 2TB drives are still being sold with the same model number. Due to changes in serial nunbers, depth of the drive housing's indentation has now become the best way to distinquish the drives (see user images - bottom right of Amazon's product page)

2) When I wrote this, I didn't feel up to offering an alternate drive recommendation, as my own opinion is based on personal experience and hence anecdotal. Many people asked, but I only answered in email, without adding a recommendation to the review.

Since Backblaze's (an online data backup company) massive long term test, their blog and extremetech's article based on that (see comments, page 26 for a link), I'll just quote their blog: "If the price were right, we would be buying nothing but Hitachi drives. They have been rock solid, and have had a remarkably low failure rate."

So, is that data even relevant for the average home user? I would say yes, because continuous, heavy use of large numbers of drives is the only way to get any half-reliable comparison.

Size: 3TB Verified Purchase
This drive failed without any warning on March 26, 2014--the dreaded clicks. Amazon showed I bought the product on September 3, 2012 and the product page stipulates a limited 2-year warranty, so I decided to get a warranty replacement. However, Seagate's warranty check stated that my warranty ran out on September 29, 2013. Upon calling Seagate's customer service, I was informed that this product only has a 1-year warranty. I am currently contesting this based on the clearly visible information on Seagate's product page that this product has a 2-year warranty. I trust Seagate will take appropriate action to remedy this inconsistency in their warranty validation database, but if not, I wish to warn Amazon users here that the warranty period listed for this product (and perhaps others) is incorrect.

Update 1: After sending documentation about the stated warranty period, Seagate agreed to update their warranty database for my particular case. (Although, scanning through more recent reviews, at least two other users already had this problem, so I don't know why the remedy wasn't global for this product line--one wonders if Seagate hopes most customers won't bother with contesting the warranty period). The response to the documentation was quick, which I appreciated. However, although they said the fix will propagate in 4hrs such that the RMA can be generated, it's been 9hrs and the validation tool still says my HDD is out of warranty. I'll leave another update once this makes progress.

Update 2: Twitter customer support is the way to go. I contacted @AskSeagate overnight, and once they woke up they sorted out my problem in relatively short order with appropriate ETAs for fix.

Size: 3TB
This is one of the select few 3TB drives approved by Synology for use in a variety of their NAS devices, so I put 4 of these in a DS411 in SHR with one disk redundancy (basically RAID 5). While anyone will tell you enterprise hard drives are better in RAID 5 or 6 configurations - and they are right, for the most part - it's hard to deny the big price difference in going enterprise: 3TB enterprise drives are well over $550 right now due to the recent Thailand flood and it may be some time before that price drops significantly. While these drives weren't as cheap as the 3TB WD Caviar Green varieties, I will NEVER put Caviar Greens in a RAID 5 again, so the ST3000DM001 quickly rose to the top of my admittedly short list.

I think it's important to point out that IntelliPower (WD) and CoolSpin (Hitachi) technologies are not really ideal for any kind of RAID array using parity. WD Caviar Green drives, especially, are known to sometimes not power up when needed, ultimately resulting in them getting dropped from the RAID array. A good NAS like the DS411 will put the drives into hibernation after 10 minutes of no activity, so you don't really need the benefit of "eco-friendly" drives in this kind of RAID anyways. Plus, with 7200RPM you will get speed improvements, so it's a no brainer to pick a drive like this over those.

That said, of course these do not have TLER, RAFF and other advantages of enterprise-class drives. So you run the risk of more errors, RAID rebuilds and potential failures by choosing a consumer drive like this. But even though the risk is greater, it's not really worth the extra money to go to 3TB enterprise-class, so I feel this is a good compromise of risk vs. value.
