5.0 out of 5 stars Great product, Speedy delivery 8 Feb 2013
By Psyper
Verified Purchase
Brought 2 drives. Both arrived in one box and were wrapped up in plenty of bubble-wrap to secure them. Each drive was sealed in their original anti-static bags which was great. Installed as secondary drives and was visible in windows7 straight away. They are already formatted into to two partitions (2TB and 1TB) due to a 2TB limitation in MBR but in windows 7 you can go in to disk manager and reformat them to GPT (google it if you need instructions) and get the full 3,000GB on one drive. I needed 1 drive split in to two and the other split in to three which gave me 2 x 2.5TB & 3 x 1TB drives on windows explorer!
The drives take a little while to start up from being parked but its not much of an inconvenience and they do make a sound which you have to expect from the speed and size they are after all. Some comments here about them making cases rattle loudly but this is a problem with the case not the drives - I can just about hear them when they spin up as everything including the drives are pretty much securely fitted in my case. You can always purchase dampners (rubber rings that you place between the drive and the case) to stop this they are only a couple of quid and can purchase them from Amazon too.

I'm using this in a Synology NAS, out of the box not a problem, the drive runs quiet and relatively cool. Transfer speeds are good too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works great with Win7 Pro 64-bit 30 May 2012
By Dad TOP 500 REVIEWER
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars More space than you can shake a stick at 16 Jun 2012

3TBs for £120! I couldn't say no. Apart from the fact it can hold a huge amount of data it seems pretty much like any other drive. I use it solely for storage rather than for programs so I don't really have any access time issues. When I click on an MP3 or MP4 it plays pretty much straight away. I like it so much I'm going to buy another 1!

I use 4 of these these HD:s in a Backup unit with Raid. The drives are silent and when not in use the draw insignificant power. For my use the speed is very good. I have used them now for 7 months and not a problem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than power saving green disks 6 Mar 2013
By Matt
Verified Purchase
I previously had a smaller NAS with WD caviar green disks (caviar red wasn't available then) which are certainly not the best disks to use in a NAS due to their spinning down and spinning up all the time which gives huge delays. Also the caviars were 5400rpm.

So I bought four of these and set it up in RAID5 in linux. These are 7200rpm which improves both the seek and the access times. I was a bit skeptical as I had always been a Western Digital fan after I purchased some Seagate Barracuda disks years ago and all of them failed within their warranty period.

So far, the disks are working great, they don't get very hot and their speeds are great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Segate 3TB - Review 24 May 2012
Verified Purchase
Length: 0:26 Mins
45cm SATA internal Hard Drive Cable with Angled Connector

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Product 3 April 2013

High quality at a good price. No problems, only downside is these are quite noisy running 24/7, so could be necessary, if hypercritical, to move installed unit to another room.

Ordered two, one was faulty. After googling, it seems it was a common fault. The replacement was fine.
