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.

I purchased both the 500GB (Seagate Barracuda 500 GB HDD SATA 6 Gb/s NCQ 64MB Cache 3.5-Inch Internal Bare Drive ST500DM002) and the 1TB (Seagate Barracuda 1 TB HDD SATA 6 Gb/s NCQ 64MB Cache 3.5-Inch Internal Bare Drive ST1000DM003) for different computer builds as the system drive. I purchased both on March 26, 2013.
The 1TB drive started to show errors in January 2015. Symptoms were BSOD, disk errors, failure to boot, and other occasional bumps. I did not get a diagnosis on this until it started to get worse (daily troubles) and I ran gsmartcontrol from sourceforge dot net in November 2015:
"Description- End-to-End error which means that after transferring through the cache RAM data buffer, the parity data between the host and the hard drive did not match. Recommendation - This is a critical parameter. Degradation of this parameter may indicate imminent drive failure. Urgent data backup and hardware replacement is recommended."
At the same time, the 500GB drive had a 30GB file that I was copying on to a removable drive and the Seagate HDD crashed. After many tries, I got the drive to be recognized and boot. But it was clicking and many files were damaged. It would freeze. I could repair the files and they would be damaged again.
I cloned both drives on to new drives that were twice the size of the original (2TB Green and 1TB Blue WD drives) using the free version of macrium reflect v6.
I have had much older computer builds with seagate barracuda drives that lasted 5-7 years with no troubles. This two year failure was a serious disappointment. Now I see Backblaze rates these drives to have a very high failure rate. Further, the seagate tools were not able to diagnose the failing disks! I had to act once the function or data/files started to corrupt. I was tempted to buy HGST (3-year warranty) for the longevity and performance with the higher price or Black WD (5-year warranty).
I chose comparably priced (to the seagate) WD (2-year warranty) to give them a chance. If they fail in 2-years I will go with WD Black or another drive that gives a longer warranty period.
FYI...to clone failing discs...
You can find a video on how easy the macrium program is to use by looking for a youtube video called "Cloning a disk using Macrium Reflect v6." I installed the free program (no spyware), created a macrium rescue disk as directed, then attached the new drive and followed the video steps to clone. 30 minutes later, I connected the new drive in place of the the old drive and rebooted. it seemed fine, but on the second boot, there was a boot problem and so I rebooted with the macrium rescue disc and ran the rescue fix. Now the clone disc runs better than the Seagate.
There are also instructions on these steps including the rescue steps in the macrium user manual (which was reassuring) and if you search for the how to geek article called "how-to-upgrade-your-existing-hard-drive-in-under-an-hour" which is where I learned about macrium.
I used macrium for both drives and it was a lifesaver.
It had been working fine but suddenly died only after 2- years of use -- it starts with some strange mechanical noise. I understand this could happen to anyone if one happened to come from faulty lots,
but still it was a big disappointment. I removed the drive from the device and put a mark "dead" on top of the seal as a note.
Then a few days later I realized that the drive is still under warranty, just a month before its expiry.
I tried to file a warranty return, but the representative pointed out that my "dead" note on the seal would void the warranty with no reason but SEAGATE's POLICY. I don't think this mark makes any difference in terms of hard drive's mechanical state. The representative even responded to my complaints that no one complains about this policy because everyone knows it.
Do we? I bet they just try not to accept a return as much as possible by creating lots of user unfriendly policies.
So be aware. The drive could fail soon; but even worse, you may have a hard time to get a replacement even if it is under warranty.
I will never buy a product from a company to do this type of business.
Update 4/23/2018: The performance of this drive is still near uncanny. The Speed is crazy fast. Faster than expected. Not returning the drive. I bought this to put into my mom's pc as a replacement for her dead drive. She loves the increased performance of her machine despite this being the same drive model as originally packaged by the OEM seller. The original drive was crap and failed less than a month after warranty expired. So I bought this and reinstalled her OS and apps. She's happy so I'm happy. Updated t three stars from one-star.
