Seagate HDD's.

Recommended Posts

Ok, im planning to get another 500 GB HDD, but this time from Seagate, and from what i read, they are good, but some of them failed.

This is the one, and these are the very poor reviews.

So i want a word if any of you had experience with Seagate drives.

That one looks absolutely shit based on reviews, so don't get it.

I've actually never had a problem with Seagate though, currently using a mixture of Seagate and WD drives in my PC at the moment (see my about page for the model numbers if you're interested). No problems with any of them so far.

i think you mean the 7200.10 ??

because they all had common faults (like with a car when it gets recalled due to xyz problem) that's what happened. we actually had a drive from a customer they said "oh it wont turn on anymore says no boot device" the whole drive was f**ked. some physical fault im not sure what.

otherwise i dont see any problem with seagate they make good drives, only ones i hear is , stay away from: maxtor. the rest are good (well, WD, samsung, seagate)...

the drives i have ... in my laptop im not sure, in one desktop is a samsung, and both my externals are WD caviar blue 500gb.

generally these things dont just fail outta randomness. it DOES happen. but its rare. if u drop your PC while its on, hit it, any vibrations or shock, power surges, lightning while pc is on, all could possibly cause it.

7200.10 had technical faults however. But im sure many seagate drives are holding lots of pr0n important data and will continue to do so for a long time.
