I dont bother reading the fail reviews tbh. the chances of one failing are the chances of you dropping it prior to installation. IMO <--- please note. but as far as im concerned this is a nice price. Thanks OP
Very nice price however I would want a longer warranty after seeing the reviews.

Voted hot though as its very cheap
The external one was £5 cheaper last week and contains exactly the same drive, with a two year warranty. Probably going to get the time machine comments but still.
its a while since I bought Seagate HDD when did they start a ONE year warranty. it was FIVE years, maybe that's a sign of their confidence in this drive :-( [That aside its a good price]

In 2010 I bought a 300gb Seagate, loaded 200gb of personal stuff including family photos/videos of relatives who had passed away...within a week, the drive crashed. Heartbroken. I've still got it on the off chance that one fine day, technology might advance far enough to recover the drive.

Will NEVER buy their crap again.
Seagate warranty is 2 years. See 2nd page of:

seagate.com/fil…pdf

These HDD are probably OEM (and cheaper) so the one year warranty is with the supplier

technology already exists to help recover the data.
It won't be cheap but professional data recovery services exist. Seagate have a service - no experience of the service myself

Any HD can fail, and ultimately all HD's will fail. You should always have backups, and multiple backups for crucial data.

Has anyone tried asking ebuyer to check if they just haven't updated their site to show the 2 year warranty like everyone else or has anyone bought one recently and tried checking the warranty length with seagate.
I'd risk it if I knew these were 1tb platter versions and made in Thailand

Scan also show 12 month warranty.

Bought two of these from Dabs who showed two years warranty - just checked one and yes valid until Feb 2015. Not much help for eBuyer but does confirm Seagate web page.
Seagate market this drive as having 1TB/platter technology, seagate.com/int…dd/

Unfortunately there are 2 variants sold as ST2000DM001 - one with lower areal density and 6 heads, and the other with 1TB platters and 4 heads.
Why care? Because the 6 head drive transfers data 20% slower as I found out after buying one!

forums.seagate.com/t5/…924

Until Seagate go to honesty classes, I'm boycotting this model and suggest buying other drives.
Cold from me (but I like the Seagate ST3000DM001, so am not anti-Seagate).

It's a shame the smaller HDD manufacturers were swallowed up as these people think they can get away with stuff like this.

Just had a failure a Hitachi Touro 2TB in the 11th month into 2 year manu. warranty. I would not risk 1 year manu. warranty for a few £. I think I go back to using bare internal disk + caddy combination. I beginning to suspect if the internal disk of these external hard disks are inferior compared with the bare internal ones and they are sold cheaper! I presume that the manufacturer expect the external hard disks to run less actively than internal disks in a desktop?
