Yes, these drives are more expensive than many other hard drives. However, when you factor in the dramatically improved reliability and longevity, it has been my experience that they are more than worth the extra money.
To be sure, there's no doubt that there may be an occasional bad unit or one that just fails, but, so far, in my experience we have never encountered one. Plus, they have a 5 year warranty and a high MTBF rating both of which, of course, are very reassuring.
Side note: if you're not backing up your data to some sort of disconnected storage device and you lose data that's not the fault of the drive or the malware that took out your data. In my experience, there are two kinds of people in the world: those who have lost data and those who will lose data.
After a week or so, I noticed my HDD was no longer listed in my drive list. I troubleshot the issue and wasn't able to figure out what was wrong. I gave up for a few days and noticed that all of the sudden, the hard drive was back in my list of drives. I hadn't done anything I know of to cause this. This off-an-on appearance of the drive happened several times until I contacted the professional who put together my PC - he told me that it was a defective drive and to return it for a replacement.
I did this and received the same HDD as a replacement item. Almost immediately after installing the new HDD I noticed once again that it wasn't appearing in my list of available drives. Again it began to show up sporadically.
At this point I figured it must be a problem with my setup or some other faulty component. I troubleshot this issue EXTENSIVELY. It finally came to the point where I completely uninstalled everything and installed a brand new motherboard myself.
I was very excited to see that after I plugged everything in and booted up, my hard drive was listed in my drives. I had thought I fixed the issue, but then the next day the drive had disappeared again.
I've taken the computer to 3 different experts to help troubleshoot my issue and they've all claimed that this is a faulty drive and that all other components are functioning properly.
I reached out to request a refund for the faulty drive that I have been sent (twice) and the company is now refusing to assist me with my issue.
I would be VERY cautious ordering this item as from what I've seen, it's very probable that the components being sold are old, damaged, reused, or faulty in some way.
Switched back to wd black which Ive used for years in other desktops to replace that. Id rather stick to the 7200rpm black model and used a ssd for a boot drive than touch another seagate again. I didnt want to believe all the issues people said about seagate but wow they were not kidding.

However, they are quite loud when reading/writing data which can sometimes be distracting. It is also sometimes loud when idle which is strange.
I purchased the 4TB model and use it specifically for gaming (I moved my steam, origin, and GOG libraries to the new hard drive).
Overall I'd recommend this hard drive for gaming if the noise issue isn't a problem for you. I don't really hear it when I'm gaming or watching films etc as the sound of the game is usually loud enough to cover the hard drive sound.
I also checked the hard drive for bad sectors etc. When I received it. All was good!
I replaced a "Blue Caviar" drive with this item which is the faster "Black". It features double the processing power on the built-in controller and is consequently much quicker to grab and write data. An added bonus is that it also runs more coolly. The previous "Blue" ran at an average 29-30c whereas the "Black" is running at about 26c. Over time too much heat kills electronics so this is good.
In operation the drive is as quiet as the "Blue" and once up to operating speed can rarely be heard. My personal advice would be to use some kind of rubber washer mountings in your case just to insulate the drive further. It doesn't need it but will benefit from it.
The only bad thing about this purchase was the packaging. It wasn't the lovely foam-padded box in the product photos. Mine came in an OEM cardboard box - no Amazon outer at all - held in place within the box by two rigid plastic inserts. Luckily the drive doesn't seem to have suffered but it caused me great concern when it arrived. I would happily pay just a little more for the Amazon card outer of old or for some of that foam.
A sham. Do not pay over the odds for a unit with 5 year warranty support when the manufacturer offers no support for the product.
Last time I purchase WD.
