50tb ???!!! :O :O :O of what !!???
Business critical data, databases etc.

I cannot emphasise enough, just how unreliable Seagate drives are and how poor their support is. If cheap is your priority and the data on your drive doesn't matter, then its perfect. If you want your data to not crash and burn, then get Fujitsu, Samsung or WD Black drives. Oh and never ever think about putting Segate SATA drives onto a hardware raid controller.. This is almost always fatal to your data.

Have you seen price for Fujitsu 3TB?
Have you seen Samsung 3TB? Ooooo wait, samsung is a seagate.

Porno.

No, Sumsang is not a Seagate. The drives are very different. Samsung harddrives is owned by Seagate, the parent company of the Seagate company that makes harddrives. Your analogy is at fault; its like saying a Jaguar is a Ford when they are two completely different cars. Because because Ford owns(ed) Jaguar motors, doesn't turn them into Ford cars.

I stand by my statement, if cheap is your priority and reliability is of little or no concern, then this drive is fine. Seagate enterprise drives are OK, the ES(2) range and their FC/Chettah drives.

Never heard it called that before! Personally I prefer to get someone else to handle my ADSL....

I think your analogy is flawed as the x-type jag shares a lot of it's parts with a mondeo. X)

If anyone has 50TB of 'mission critical' data lying around in only 1 location, then they haven't got any data at all. Backup! If it doesn't exist in 3 different places, then it doesn't exist!

And as for the deal - lop £20 off and I'll think about it.

This is a reasonably good prices granted, which is what this place is all about so well done to the op for that, and i used to be a fan of seagate (back when they had a 5 year warranty) but now i don't think i would touch them. We are in a rather ridiculous position at the moment where its perfectly possible to buy a used drive and have substantially more warranty left on it than a brand new drive (i did just that a few days ago). If they don't have much faith in their own products, how can the rest of us be expected to.

Maybe Fiat & Ferrari might make a better analogy?.

2 years on these when buying elsewhere. Not sure if ebuyer has the grey oems there or something?
dottedcup382#31
Does anyone know if this drive is OEM, or does it come with retail packaging?

Not in stock, 1-2 month wait for delivery. So ok if you're not in a rush.

Be aware mine just turned up (paid for next day delivery) & it made a god awful clicking noise, now it's DOA, NOT impressed.

Anyone know what ebuyers RMA is like?

That's a bit scary! I purchased one yesterday with free delivery so will be interesting to see what its like when it turns up.

I had to return a TV to ebuyer a couple of years ago and the returns process was very easy - it was all done through their online messaging system. I was pretty impressed with how smooth everything went.

Just put a Seagate ordered from Ebuyer at this price into one of my PCs and it's fine - no clicking noises and passed a SMART self-test in Linux without any issues. Haven't had any problems with any of the 8 Seagate 3 TBs I've bought in the past couple of months, though I did stagger them and got them from different retailers

One nice thing that Seagate do is provide firmware updates for the drive as an ISO image - I wish *all* manufacturers of firmware-upgradeable electronics you put in a PC would do that! Can't believe some still do the "DOS floppy" garbage (or worse, Windows-only updaters - I'm looking at you, Corsair, with your SSD updates).
