Use RAID? Backup your stuff, smaller drives have just as much chance of dying

You can store a lot of prawns on this!

I have been running on this drive since November and for my experience I can only praise it!
It's an absolute bargain at this price too.

Heat & Rep added.

RAID never was and never will be a backup solution. RAID should only ever be considered for redundancy to keep data online incase of a drive failure.
#15
Unless raid mirorr forget about it. That and you really know what you are doing. I dont mess with raid at all anymore. For the extra performance its just not worth the risk.

Back to this deal. Well it looks ok for 1.5tb drive. But 1tb is £60 ish I got 2 x 1tb drives and a dual enclosure a few months go for around £140 total. That was a while back as well.

Its down to cost really I would rather have 1tb for £60 - £70 personally and build in redundancy than the bigger drive at this sort of price. £216 for 3tb vs £120 - £140 for 2tb. There is not really much in it.

So as a deal I dont really think its that good.

There's a big thread about faulty seagate 7200.11 drives over on overclockers.The thread had links to many threads at the official seagate forum too.Which seagate have now deleted!

Surely you mean as a "storage option" you don't think it's that good?

This post shows the drive for quite a few notes cheaper than anywhere else...so this is a hot deal...regardless of whether you prefer a different configuration or drive for your own storage needs.

... Ships with an industry-leading 5-year warranty ....

NO it does NOT !!!

Seagate have abandoned 5 year warranties on bare drives - only some boxed retail drives still have 5 year warranties - everything else has 1 or 3 year warranties!

Also there are big reliability issues with all Seagate high capacity 1TB and 1.5TB drives - you have been warned!

"According to a member of Seagate support forum that claims to work with data recovery, the problem has long been recognized in the industry, and relate mainly to the 500 GB model with product code ST3500320A and firmware SD15. Similar problems were also seen with other models of the Barracuda 7200.11 family." [http://forums.seagate.com/stx/board/message?board.id=ata_drives&thread.id=3283&view=by_date_ascending&page=1]

What's that got to do with it..?

The point is can you find this cheaper? answer...... no.....
#25
Hot price for 1.5TB BUT......

Would rather have 2x1TB for £120ish and thus be able to back up stuff. If your 1.5TB goes (unless you have 2) you are going to be up the proverbial

Whats the difference you plum as long as you dont lose the data !
#27
For the cost of the drive - HOT deal as you can't get it cheaper elsewhere at the moment

As for failure rates etc, can't really say as I have never used one, but if you do buy two to put in a RAID 1 config, bear in mind that if you buy them together, they could be from the same manufacturing batch and therefore fail at the same time.
However, this is not always likely the case as manufacturers do tend to mix up batches when shipping, but worth keeping in mind.

Also, RAID 1 is not a backup solution as mentioned earlier - it's a redundancy solution.
For backup purposes you should really be looking at alternate methods or possibly even using one of these as a backup media

The difference is that in RAID 1 what you do on the logical drive is mirrored on both the physical drives, therefore if you delete a file, you can't simply go and retrieve it from the other physical drive.
If it was backed up though, you could simply go to your backup media and restore the said file.

Remember these words and you will save yourself much pain: RAID IS NOT A BACKUP SOLUTION! It is for redundancy, NOT backup. I would almost go as far to say that for home use RAID is next to useless and almost certainly responsible for more data loss than it prevents. Even if you have RAID, you STILL need to backup, it's that simple.

Partly correct. From Seagate itself:

Effective January 3, 2009, Seagate® will be making some important changes to its limited warranty terms for selected bare drive products.
The warranty period for consumer electronics, notebook and personal storage bare drives sold to Seagate Authorised Distributors will be changed from 5 to 3 years. Seagate believes that the new warranty period and terms better reflect current industry standards.


i.e. No one else is sticking his neck out, so why should we? Especially as our drives are no more reliable than anyone else's and this one less than everyone else's.

Having said that, recent reports indicate that Seagate has fixed the problems with this drive, so failure rates on new batches should be around industry norms. Nevertheless, this drive has had a very bad rep and there may be plenty of the bad batches still taking up room in retailer's warehouses. Check the manufacturing date when you receive it and if it's an old one, send it back.
#31
Yes reliability is a bit suspect with this drive...

But the BIG question is..?

Will it work in a SKY HD Box? :thinking:

x2 1tb for £60 = 2tb for £120. About £12 more than this deal for 500gb.

Not that an amazing a deal tbh. Thry've reduced it to a £1 cheaper than what everywhere was selling it at: http://www.ebuyer.com/product/149459

Cold for me , Just bought a 1tb (samsung) drive for 60 quid from Microdirect so that times 2 is a better deal (and safer) than a single 1.5 drive.

#35
good price for a new piece of kit, tho as already mentioned seems to be loads of issues with these drives atm. ebuyer are knocking out the WD Caviar Black 750gb for 63.99 del atm and i'd prob go with 2 of these over one of the 1.5tb seagates.

Um...that was in jest, hence the whistling smiley - "Cold you can get a 1TB for £60" seems to have become the standard reply to all hard disk threads ;-)

Great price for a 1.5T hard drive, plus Seagate makes reliable HD's (I currently use 3 Seagate drives).

Can it be used for a ps3?

No, not for PS3.
