Very good price for the TBs

Edit: I take that back - your deal title says £72.71 - but it's actually 77.21 :(

Great enclosures, much better than the western digital ones. However, the drives inside arent very good. They suffer from the click of death.

I bought one of these from Argos and after 5 weeks it started the click of death luckily I didn't have it long enough to fill it up so only lost around 400gbs which was still a pain to lose.Argos offered me an hitachi drive as an alternative which has been more reliable (for me anyway). I know that people have different experiences with drives but it put me off ever buying a seagate drive again especially as it only was used for 10hrs or so.

very good price!

I can't remember exactly where I read this so take this figure with a grain (or whole bucketload) of salt, but it said the 2TB Seagate had a 30-40% failure rate through the click of death. Mine started clicking loud after 6 weeks but I managed to send it back for a full refund.

After two of these, CLICKING, it will take a whole lot of convincing before I'd go for anything Seagate branded that's bigger than 160GB.

Bought one of these from Maplin two days ago, starting clicking yesterday. Got an RMA number with no quibbles, so have requested a full refund and have ordered the WD My Book 2Tb from ebuyer as a replacement.

Yep, that's what I was using ;)

Is anyone prepared to list the model number of their known faulty drives before they all get tarred with the same brush?
Seagate make a lot of models and provide a warranty believe it or not.

The Barracuda LP is the notorius one for the click of death.

The 7200.11 was buggy and was replaced under warranty until 2 firmware updates were released.

Theres also the Green, the ES and the XT in 2TB
