Second Failure

I had one of these Seagate drives in my original build from OC and soon as I fired the PC up, out of the box, it was not recognised. Spoke to support and got an RMA so returned it.

After about a year this second Segate hard drive also failed, making clicking sounds and not being recognised, again, phoned supports and got an RMA.

I am going back to Western Digital from now on, never again will I get Seagate. Only thing to do with the Seagate drives is use them as a door stop, that's all they are good for, or as a paperweight.


Second one.

I bought one of these last year and it has performed admirably, so I decided to grab another one while they were on offer. Very quiet, very quick and under


HDD review

Oredered 2 of these just after dinner on Tuesday 29th, delivered wednesday before 9 am.

Brilliant service and packaging from OC as usual 5* for them.

Hard drives were a replacement store drives and work a treat. Although not the fastest drives out there these are more than adequate. Quiet design too, didnt even hear them kick in. Recommended buy :) 5*

Very quick and very quiet.

Excellent HDD

I got it on offer, which is lucky as prices of HDD's are just insane at the moment what with all the flooding in Thailand etc. It's a great HDD, very fast. I would definitely get it unless you are SURE you need a 1TB HDD.

pretty good drives

i have 2 of these in my system and they are the fastest harddrives i have ever owned, they run nice and cool and quiet as well, seem a bit pricey at the moment though they were down to 35 quid before, but all harddrives are expensive at the moment :)
