    Bought a total of five of these on separate occasions, and four failed within three years. I would not recommend this model specifically; other Seagate drives should have better failure rates.

    Does not frequent reviews. But for these I make an exception. After having rigged my nas that are cool and untouched in a protected space for the 3rd time, I can only conclude that Seagate is crap. The tragedy is that the only sensible thing I have to come up with the 12 st counters are:

    Do you have any? Get absolutely not Seagate

    Have you already? Weep and purchase new (certainly not Seagate)

    Every second over 24 months is a winning ticket that just becomes a BLANK.

    In summary, one can only conclude that Seagate would be doing something else entirely. That they are not gone under is just that, a miracle!

    Purchased (pure for many ... 6) of this variety. Why? they were cheap and did a lot for 2 NAS. First bought three years ago and last for 2 years ago. Only one of them still works, the rest have put off for about 6 months. Know that these are not optimal in a NAS but it has been with spin down and turned off for much of the day as they have been running like a well-used computer.

    The only hint to give is do not buy them. Odds are soaring to the failar. Debris explains easiest these counters. Do you such and they work so running backup this instant!

    And obviously short warranty!

    I had one of these dishes a while before I discovered the tick sound. drove it in an external box.
    after replacing No. 3, I got the money back.

    did not want to risk the counter would die so it had to be different.

    CAUTION!

    As others write, do not buy these disks! I bought 4st to my NAS (RAID 5) after 1.5 years passed, two of them apart within 6h - I could therefore not save anything.

    I have a friend who has the same disks in the NAS and he has replaced 3 of 5 including a trade-in counter.

    I've bought safe over 100 hard drives through my years and never seen anything like it.

    The only positive is that they tend to break before the warranty period - so you can anyway get the debris disk and start ;-)

    I stick to the WD and Hitachi nowadays and Seagate avoid like the plague.

    Affordable and fast with absolutely OK sound level.

    However worked very shaky when I have replaced 3 of 5 in less than 2 years with the exact same type of read / write errors. I think going back to WD next time when they worked without a problem during the three years before these counters. :(

    Update 2015-01-08
    Now 5 of 8 disks been changed, so the fun goes on and on.

    Seagate's support and replacement warranty has functioned OK on all five if it'll be any consolation, but soon after the guarantee period out ...

    Update 2015-06-22

    Another disk after 16500 powered on hours and no guarantee because it was a replacement disk.

    Now I have only one hot spare remains, then, these shall be thrown where they belong and replaced.

    - Fairly loud. Maybe not compared to other 7200RPM drives, but
    then I most enjoyed "green" drives in recent years so let those who engines in comparison. Have three of these in my NAS and had planned to have it in your living room, but it is not a viable option because of the noise level on the disks, so I have to find another solution there.

    (-) The strange "chirp" sound is familiar to the hard drive but when I flashed it to the latest firmware (CC4H), it ceased problem.

    Update:
    Seeing that there have been some comments recently about these hard disks sustainability and thought I would update my post with my experiences.

    I now have five of these kinds of disks in my NAS that has been on around the clock for just over two years. I replaced my first hard drive a week ago when I got the "bad sector count" messages from my NAS (note: HDD "died" not, but it was probably on the way). Sure, it would never be the hard drives will die, but still have to say that I can not be very disappointed that one in five have died when they have been running around the clock for over two years.

    Update 2:
    Unfortunately now have three hard drives to have died since the last update (8 months ago) which means that four of my five original disks have put off. One can thus expect a life span of about 2 years in a NAS standing on around the clock, which I think is acceptable and I have therefore lowered the rating significantly. Now replacing these with WD40EFRX and hope for better results.

    WARNING! WARNING!
    Agree with others here to warn these disks - incredible that they are sold than when they are so miserable!
    I have never had a real hard disk crash earlier but it wont always show itself was a cable that slipped out or something if the drive is not responding but this is really dead.
    Worked like clockwork yesterday - stone dead today. And I have a similar one to which I do not dare trust now either so it will be to buy two new, so there are guaranteed not to Seagate anyway I can promise!
    Both disks besides just over 2 years old - purchased in November and December 2012 - so I just miss the warranty (which I believe is in two years?) Is typically enough.

    And then I side up Suncores informational link from below: https://www.backblaze.com/blog/what-hard-drive-should-i-buy/

    It is thus clear absurdly high failrate on Seagate drives compared to other brands so it does not seem to apply only to this model.

    WARNING! DO NOT BUY!

    I bought a top 5 disks into a RAID 5 Cabinet.

    2014-05-17: Now, one of the five disks I bought has broken, and it will hardly be the only thing that will break ...

    2014-06-16: Now there was another one of the disks apart ... Almost exactly a month after the first disk is broken, and also almost exactly to the day a year ago I bought the disks ...

    2014-07-11: Disc 3/5 has now pajjat. Starting to get really tiring to felanmäla and send these disks in return. Good with 2 year warranty though. My confidence in these disks is now absolute zero.

    2014-07-24: That's it, time for disk 4/5 to give up. I have not even had time to get back disk as pajjade before this.

    Instead of waiting for the fifth and last of the original disks fails, I have now replaced it immediately.

    Many thanks to Inet who have replaced all disks and stood for shipping expenses without any hassle.

    / / / DO NOT BUY THESE COUNTERS / / /

    Edit nr1:
    Taking down the score because of extremely high failure rate. After 2yrs has 4 of 6 disks failed.
    Plus to Seagate, which increased the warranty period to 2 years, but that's little comfort when the disks fails on a conveyor belt.

    Edition No.2:
    What the f *** s, these drives are rubbish!
    Now you have 4 pieces of the 6st I bought crumbled. Got so allowed to buy a spare and now have zfs thrown out due to unrecoverable error. Ie, 5 of 7, and counting ....

    Edit nr3:
    NUSA has all 6 of 6x disks crumbled. The last two flew just after two years of age.
    Thankfully ZFS is one of those fantastic filesystem warned me in time so I have not gotten rid of any data.

    plus:
    Cheap and relatively fast disks!
    Have 6st of these in a zfs pool.
    Performs well.
    Goodwill warranty extended to 2 years.

    Minus:
    BLOWS!
    SmartAlign dung. There are 4k sectors but the counter pretending that it is 512b. Fix a firmware where the hard drive is not lying about their sectors thanks.
    Troublesome detour to get to the correct Solaris.
