There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
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.
Rant aside, this drive is fast as hell. I was surprised how quickly it comes out of sleep mode (~ 2 seconds vs the 10-15 it takes my old(er) WD 3.0TB drive). I ran a long SMART check that came back clean and i've copied about a TB of stuff over to it. Zero complaints so far... but as others have said, we'll see how it fares in the long-term. If I needed another 5TB right now, I wouldn't hesitate on buying another one of these.
Amazon packing was a little sketchy... the air bags stopped the HD from moving horizontally in the box, but not vertically. Other than that, i'm happy with this purchase.
Drive is used daily and still comes back clean with long SMART tests. Still very satisfied with this drive.
Now being used as a nvr drive for 10, 4MP ip cameras -- pretty much constant writes for over a year and still going strong. I'd comfortably say this drive has exceeded my expectations.
"Thank you for contacting Seagate Support. We understand that your power supply failed after emitting a high pitch noise so you are unable to use the drive. We understand you wish to get the replacement. We regret the inconvenience caused. We will certainly help you. In this case, we would like to inform you that Seagate doesn't sell accessories separately. But, you can easily purchase the replacement power supply for your external hard drive by contacting any third party vendor or any e-commerce website."
This reply is total crap. This product is in warranty and it is not my problem if your company doesn't sell these separately or not. I bought a product from you I expect it (all parts of it) to work!!! Especially the powersupply that when fails, causes the entire product to be useless.
My suggestion to you is to buy products from companies that stand behind the quality of their products and care about the people that keep them in business - their customers. Will not buy another Seagate product!
