I just can't trust seagate any more.

I just can't trust seagate any more.


Whereas I've never had an issue with a Seagate drive, but Toshiba's seem to be poorer in my drive ownership history.
My first hdd was WD, it failed after 4 months, I had to post it back for a replacement at ny expense, I was without a pc for 2 weeks.

My current desktop has a secondary seagate hdd and has been fine.

I dont rush to any thread to bash either manufacturer.
makes the WD deal look even better
Being using Seagate for about 15 years, never had a problem with any of their drives. Had many drives other the years not one has gone wrong.
Interesting reading the comments. I'm currently struggling to decide between Seagate and WD in terms of reliability for an external portable HD.
Im lookng at the WD one too but the delivery date delver date is between 10th March and 15th April
Amazing price.

Seagate drives are (now) excellent and their warranty and repair/data recovery service is world leading.
Nice one mate
I would never buy Seagate again. Friend of mine is having to pay Seagate 500 quid for data recovery from a failed drive.
Personally I would go WD and always do.

Anecdotal evidence is not real evidence. Any drive can (and will eventually) fail, and the difference between any of the manufactures is minimal.
Much better to have a proper backup strategy rather than having to spend £500 for data recovery that may or may not work, or 'trusting' one vendor or another when it comes to reliability.

What drive is in this?
Unless you really need faster performance for a specific purpose you'd be far better with a 5tb portable 2.5" HDD which can be had for the same price and unlike this, doesn't require mains power.

would this be good for use with the Nvidia Shield using Plex?

Just punishment for not having a backup!?
Got one of these on sale around November (6TB model). Absolutely fine. A little faster than my 5TB WD portable (which it should be, seeing as it's powered). A little noisy but only when the drive is being accessed. Silent any other time.

Using it for archiving and backups only though. For the price, it's worth it and does what it's supposed to do.
As if by magic, Backblaze reports Seagate as being more unreliable than normal failure rates........

blocksandfiles.com/202…ze/

Surprise surprise, this Seagate drive replaces the previous most unreliable drive, another Seagate.....
Just don't be any HDD from a place that use heavy handing delivery companies (Amazon etc) and most drives are perfect. If you can local pickup if you're lucky enough to have a good place nearby.
Solid deal this though!
