Damn!
If I hadn't just bought to bare 2Tb drives I'd have got these.
Great price.

Anyone know what the manufacturing defect in this line of Seagate drives is?

From the comments, failure rate is high.

I no longer buy seagates after having 2/3 fail and losing all data on them. WD and Samsung for me! Still, good price and very useful item.

Just stay away from Maxtor as that is Seagate's budget brand and they are trash.

Cheap but I wouldnt buy a seagate drive.

Every HDD manufacturer has a bunch of people saying "omg stay away! I've had one break" - unless it's a particular model with an abnormally high failure rate like the Hitachi Death Star, I'd take such recommendations with a grain of salt.

Too many bad reviews on Amazon to dare touch one of these. Samsung or WD get my vote.

I have a 1tb seagate and the usb connection has broken off (it was my fault just in case you think this is a complaint about Seagate's manufacturing.)

I have took the 1tb hdd out of the broken external case and now need another external case to put it in, would I have to buy another seagate 1tb for this to work or will any 1tb external case work?

- I'd rather buy another HDD as opposed to an empty case as these are about £15 alone on ebay, so I may as well get another external HDD and switch the 2 between 1 case

any case will do

Absolutely everyone grumbling about the seagate drives.....not sure I'd risk it.....

Rom

any case will do



Thanks I might go and void my WD Elements warranty and open that up

i still think it's a good deal and will give it a go ..

Great price.

I actually did have a Seagate hard drive problem once, the firmware problem (it was a flaw in the firmware and once the internal chipset counted off whatever it counted off it shut down the drive......it happened on mine around a year after buying).
That was with a 500gb drive (I also had a 1tb drive but as that had not failed I was able to replace the firmware with a fault-free version myself).

Seagate could not have been more helpful, everything was done under warranty and for free - I mistakenly posted the item off to the data recovery address but they would have arranged DHL collection for even that.
They sent me my hard drive back working perfectly & with everything on it intact.

I have no problem using Seagate & always get either their stuff or a Western Digital drive when I'm buying......I avoid Samsung because I know someone who once had a Samsung drive fail (see, none of this stuff is very scientific, it's as irrational as that).

As Seagate don't seem to make an internal 2TB hard drive with 32mb cache that runs at 7200rpm, anyone know what hard drive is in these?
