4.0 out of 5 stars Not Bad
By Jay on May 16, 2017
This is my first try with Seagate in a long time (mostly a HGST guy). Inside this case is Seagate's Archive hard drive which OEM bare drive retails for $249. So for $179 it's a steal. (read about the Archive drive on Seagates website)

USB 3.0 interface was fast. Tested empty drives formatted in HFS and ExFAT, both were a constant 180-190 MB per second read/write. After the drive was 90% full, large files peaked at 100MBps read and write, and smaller files averaged around 64MBps write, 80 read. Decent. Been running 6 of these for a week now 24/7 and have had no problems. All files have transferred and verified. And I performed a complete sector scan verify on one of them with no issues reported using SoftRAID for OSX.

Cases are plastic so they're not the best for heat dissipation, but the drive itself sits in a metal bracket inside the case which helps. The case has vent holes on the bottom for some reason instead of the top, and holes on the back, but nothing on the front. I've been keeping a small fan on them as I've been copying and verifying for 24/7 for a few days. Probably not best to run 24/7 unless there's some cooling on them or they're in a very cold room. But I don't imagine most people will be running them at full tilt for days on end.

I would buy these and take the drives out of their cases and put into a NAS. I'm curious how they'd perform long term.

1.0 out of 5 stars Slow!
Reviewed in Canada on September 28, 2018
Fantastic value, horrible speed for large sustained transfers. If you're broke, just copying intermittently, or not copying tons of data, go ahead and buy one, if not, read on...

I was under the impression Seagate's newer models had eschewed SMR "archive" drives for higher performance barracuda's, but apparently the new barracuda's are now equally as crippled, and you have to get a "pro" for decent performance. My unit appears to contain a st8000dm004. I spent a couple of days testing to ensure it had no gremlins, then started copying data...

Starts off very briefly at 160MB/s filling it's buffer, after 60 seconds that's halved, by 90 seconds I'm averaging sub 20MB/s speeds. The included screenshot shows copying my scan folder... purely transferring images, which is about the easiest (fastest) thing for a drive to handle. My aging (5 year old?) 3tb seagate external handles the exact same transfer settling in at a stable ~60MB/s average, and the ironwolf I purchased to replace this averages 135MB/s. Adding smaller files to the mix causes speed to plummet further, frequently grinding to a dead halt (yes zero kb/s). And I'm not talking thousands of files, even just adding XMP sidecars for RAW files (each 24MB raw paired with a 7kb file) is a problem. While read speeds were better, they were also well below expectation at 60-80MB/sec for the same folder.

The drive still passes seatools tests and smart data shows zero issues, so I have to assume it is working correctly. If Seagate was upfront about performance I'd happily have moved on, and recommended this to all my friends as a fantastic value for uses where speed isn't a factor, or where only a few GB need copying at a time. Just dumping another HD movie into storage? No problem... doing real work? Think again. As an "expansion" drive rather than a "backup plus" where you advertise a drive specifically to expand storage "without compromising performance" this is not acceptable. I've wasted several days of testing, lost my window of downtime for my project, and feel entirely misled.

Seagate I have nothing against you as a company, and I have purchased an ironwolf to replace this, but you need to get your marketing together and be upfront about this kind of thing. I have never previously rated a working product one star - while I can understand and forgive the occasional DOA drive, I can't forgive deceptive marketing from an industry leader. 1 star for an extremely disappointing experience.
