1.0 out of 5 stars Arrived with internal short. Fried cable and PSU!
Reviewed in Canada on December 19, 2018
Let me start by saying that I am an IT professional. I have been a sysyadmin and big-data architect for almost 20 years. I have installed literally thousands of hard drives in my career. This is not some kid who stuck tinfoil in his port...

Having said that; This is my first ever destructive failure. I plugged the HDD into a powered down, unplugged, PC with static all removed with a wrist cable.

I then booted the machine into linux to format the drive and it wouldn't show up in fdisk. I re-opened the case and got smacked in the face with melted plastic smell and despair. The sata sable is melted at the drive end, and the drive connectors themselves are melted (as shown in the picture)

If that wasn't bad enough... That port on my PSU is now useless. I plugged a fresh sata power cable into the port and it does nothing.

I have put in for a refund, but save yourself the hassle and skip this batch of HDDs. I will be tweeting at seagate to see if they have any idea how to make good on this. Otherwise all of my future purchases will be with Samsung or WD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast and Spacious! - 12TB
Reviewed in Canada on April 2, 2018
Sometimes, there comes along a piece of technology that surprises you - The Seagate BarraCuda Pro 12TB did just that for me. I was surprised at how fast it is for a mechanical drive. It's read / write speeds exceed manufacturer specifications. I'm using this as media storage for my little Gigabyte Brix i3 mini PC, which is hooked up to my TV. The BarraCuda Pro 12TB easily keeps up with fast binary downloads. It's also faster than my 1TB FireCuda (which it replaces). As of this date, I could only find one external enclosure that officially supports this capacity: Mediasonic HDL-SU3 (It's stated on their website). This drive works very well with this enclosure. An option to extend the rescue service to 3 years (USD $15) is presented after registration. I did take up this offer, as I'm using this as a DAS drive (non critical media, but will be nice to recover if drive fails). This drive makes a slight rattling noise at times, but not disturbingly noisy while watching video. I highly recommend this drive.

1.0 out of 5 stars Two drives, one with 2500+ bad sector, one DoA
Reviewed in India on October 14, 2018
Ordered this drive on Amazon sale, first one delivered within a day. Connect it to desktop to try transferring some files, right off the bat gnome disks says 1700+ bad sectors, however drive health is ok. Do a brief research and found that this alone might not make it a bad drive, the number may not even go up. Try transferring files from old hard disk (HGST, 1TB, 3 years old, zero bad sectors), after about 100GB transfer, rsync slows down and begins to complain. I check gnome disks, 2590+ bad sectors, drive health reduced to 99 from 100, still says ok. Decided not ok, disconnect the drive and repackaged it.
Order a replacement, replacement gets delivered 3 days later in torn up packaging held together with rubber bands. Connect the drive again, Windows disk management asks to intialize drive, click initialize, fails with IO error. Boot linux live distro, with the SATA cable from my Crucial SSD connected to this drive on the off chance the cable was bad. Gnome disks can't initialize the drive, gparted fails to scan drive and complains about IO errors. Disconnected and repackaged it, now contemplating next move.

Edit: Ended up taking it up to seagate customer service, RMAed it, they gave me a new hard drive, with warranty, delivered in a properly cushioned box. Using it for 5 months now, no issues yet.
