In case you want to know the server details, its a 24 drive enclosure with a 1000watt PSU, Adaptec 5805 Raid card, Chenbro expander card running FreeNAS on a 64gb SSD, I don't remember the processor speed but it's a xeon of some flavor. It has run like a dream in somewhat suboptimal conditions for about 7 years 24x7.
I bought this drive in July 2016 for a computer I was building. I have a ~200gb SSD for the OS, and got this drive as my main storage. Recently, there was a problem with the computer and I had to restore it, including wiping both hard drives. This is not my main computer, I only use it for gaming, so I didn't have anything important on the drive, just a few games that I can easily download again. When I was installing the OS and setting up my computer again, the computer did not recognize this drive. I finished setting up the computer with the SSD, then ran diagnostic tests on it and went through all of the troubleshooting steps on Seagate's website. When all of that failed, I contacted Seagate customer service.
Customer service told me that my drive was broken, that I would need to get a new one, and that the drive was not under warranty. I originally bought this drive because of Seagate's supposed good reputation for reliable parts, and because it came with a warranty. It says right in the product description that it has a 2-year warranty. Seagate's customer service told me that my drive was not purchased directly from Seagate, but instead was purchased and then repackaged as part of a complete system, and that, therefore, Seagate was not responsible for any warranty claims. I tried to explain to them that this was not the case. I told them that my drive is not a part of a preassembled computer I purchased from a computer manufacturer like Dell, but that I purchased the drive individually and assembled my computer myself. They refused to listen and insisted that they were not responsible for the defective drive. They even had the temerity to suggest that I contact the company that manufactured my computer and take advantage of their fee-based data recovery services. I got a replacement drive from Western Digital. I will never buy from Seagate again, and I urge you to do the same.
This are a plain brown box, 100% no-frills HDD spinner drives straight out of a factory bin, however super fast on CrystalDiskMark5. Bought 2 of them primarily to serve up video on PLEX. Up and running within 20 min and absolutely flawless so far. Highly recommended and will update with reliability in the next few weeks. For now I just copied all the video files and will keep a backup just in case they don't perform as expected ...
After backing up my files (and promising myself I'd remember to do regular backups next time!), I ran a SMART test to assess the drive's health. The test failed, with "Reallocated Sector Count", "Current Pending Sector Count" and "Uncorrectable Sector Count" all being in the thousands. The test also said the drive had been on for an embarrassing 2 months 20 days before failing. (For comparison, my 5 year-old laptop has taken quite a bit of abuse, and its hard drive has been on for a year and 8 months. Yet its SMART test passed with 0 errors in all these categories.) So the drive isn't dead yet, but it's clearly dying, and I don't dare use it for anything.
This was going to be a 2-star review, but when I came back to this page, I noticed the 2-year warranty. Intrigued, I went to the Seagate website and proceeded to enter my drive info on 2 different pages. Both told me that I wasn't covered because of something about this being an OEM product (then why does it say "2-year warranty" on this page?), and said I should contact the company that actually sold it to me. (Who, Amazon? You can't.)
Then I tried calling Seagate. After getting through several automated menus, I was told that the support center was closed at this time. When is the support center open? Instead of telling me, the automated voice gave me a link to a webpage. Guess what? Hours weren't posted on that webpage either.
So here I am, with a failing hard drive and feeling pretty scammed. Be careful about picking the cheapest hard drive, folks.
