Just purchased this drive, received it very quickly it came in a sealed anti-static bag which in turn was inside a bubble wrap bag all packed in a small cardboard box. On receiving the drive I partitioned it to GPT and formatted it to NTFS copied over all my files from a 500gb drive all went well and the drive is working fine but it took some time to do. Now this is the point that I discover the problem. When I go to swap the drives over I noticed the label on the NEW dive that I received and it read.

CERTIFIED REPAIRED HDD.

Nowhere in the description does it say it is a faulty HDD that has been repaired and there is no way of knowing how reliable or how long the drive was used BEFORE it was repaired. If I had known it was a repaired drive I would not have purchased it.

*UPDATE* Just checked the date code 13181 This equates to 02-11-2012 (Over 2 years old), Just requested a refund.
*UPDATE 2* Please note the supplier of this disk was "InvisibleMedia".

I got this drive, installed it in my case & made sure I didn't have static electricity (wristband), I then installed it very carefully and booted up my computer. The drive was recognized and everything was fine. After a week of usage, I then watched a movie that was stored on it. It then started to skip frames, lag out, cut out etc. I did a S.M.A.R.T test & to my surprise there was A LOT of bad sectors. I asked people on Tomshardware & SpeedFan said that I needed to replace the drive immediately.

I asked for a refund and Amazon was very helpful. I know have bought a WDC 3TB one instead, waiting for it to arrive.

Dead on Arrival! Asked for it to be collected and for a refund to be processed.

This is the second 3TB drive that I have ordered. The first one is still going strong from July 2012.

This partciular Disk Drive was ordered on 4th Oct arrived on the 8th October (not exactly Amazon Prime!). I was away on business so did not install and test until 13 October. The disk was packaged in a box 11cm x 15cm x 22cm (i.e. not much larger than the disk drive itself).

The box contained the 3TB drive as ordered (Serial Number Z1F32JEM).

1. I connected the disk drive to my PC via the usual internal power and data cables.
2. I then turned on PC to notice lots of clicking from this disk drive- as if it was trying to read from bad sectors.
3. The disk drive was not seen by the Seagate Disk Wizard - so I performed a shutdown.
4. I tested the cables on a known working disk drive - all ok, and then shutdown the PC.
5. I reconnected the 3 TB Seagate disk drive and turned on.
6. Ran up the Seagate Disk Wizard Application
7. Upon trying to prepare the disk for first use, the clicking started again - more intense this time.
8. The following error was displayed "Failed to read from sector '1,565,565,871' of hard disk upon which the clicking stopped.
7. Used HD Tune app to find that the disk was full of bad sectors
8. Following a re-boot the disk can't be seen by the Seagate Disk Wizard.
9. Requested a refund and return of this item.
10. I have ordered another disk drive to replace this item.

Depending on how quickly the collection and refund is resolved and whether the replacement item I have ordered works I may well review the rating of this item.

Update 16th Oct
The disk drive was collected.

Worked fine right out of the box; installed and configured with no hassles.

I was able to easily configure it as a single partition. I configured it for GPT instead of MBR; and thus I have access to full 3TB (formatted as 2.72TB) without breaking it up into partitions. No extra software or hardware was needed.

I have a new PC the configuration made this install very straightforward: Asus P8P67 Pro REV 3.0 mobo, Intel i7-2600K CPU, 16GB RAM, two Intel 510 SSDs, 5 additional internal Seagate Barracuda HDs, two 3TB eSATA HDs Win 7 Pro 64-bit SP1, Antec P183 v3 case, Antec CP1000 power supply,

It runs just slightly warm to the touch, about the same as my other non-SSD HDs. Note: I have a 120mm fan dedicated to my (lower) HD bay where these drives are installed.

I scanned the whole drive for bad spots without significant findings or problems.

I needed the 3TB of space for my digital photography hobby, so easy access to this much space is very welcome.

As soon as you install the HDD make sure you conver it from MBR disk to GPT disk. This is because the product arrives as a mbr disk meaning that the maximum data it holds is 2TB, but after converting it to GPT "you can use up all 3TB as 1 partition".

The following link will guide you through each step. Make sure you run command prompt as an Administrator.

From the link below follow solution 3 as it is more reliable and no need to download any 3rd party software.

Purchased 2 of these and within 24 hours have ordered more. Fantastic HDDs, really quick to 'initialise' and 'format' -> less than 10 seconds. I installed these in my external 4 x drive bay unit and already had Disk Management open in Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit, a message box popped up and said Disk 3 & 4 need to be initialised. Did this, was instantaneous. Then right-clicked on each one individually and selected quick format (default option so just hit OK). Took seconds. Very impressed with 2.72TB free on each HDD.

Next I spent 11-hours copying > 4TB (yes that's TERABYTES) of files across to these drives from 2 external drives (1 x 4TB Seagate Expansion & 1 x 500GB Iomega eGo, both USB 3.0) and was seriously impressed with 145MB/s to 150MB/s transfer speeds (see following link below for examples shot with my iPhone:[...]

UPDATE: My 3rd Seagate 3TB drive arrived and installed perfectly and seems even faster than my other 2 - CrystalDiskMark 3 tests for Sequential Read/Write (3x 1000MB test) shows 185 MB/s for both!

June 2014: I'm now on my 4th Seagate 3TB HDD and this completes the final slot in my USB 3.0 external JBOD. I'm getting 170 MB/s minimum through sustained usage - yesterday I copied 1,700 GB of HD Videos across to this new drive effortlessly!!
