There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
It's been in operation four months working 24/7 recording from 6 HD cameras with daily transfers of older recordings. It amounts to several TB's of data within this 4-month period.
Anytime I've physically checked the drive it feels warm instead of hot. To start with I used standard desktop drives and with the constant writing they ran hot to the touch. I appreciate the performance without heating this drive provides as it helps keep the temperature down in the servers case.
For mounting these use standard drive screws. Another reviewer indicated that the screw required was not the same as those used on other drives. They are in fact the same thread found in probably half the drives in use, there are two sizes of standard screws and this simply uses the smaller version but it is nonetheless a standard screw. Like any other drive you can buy, it DOES NOT COME SCREWS, NO DRIVES DO.
An important note, if you intend to use this in a desktop for gaming or general computing you'll be disappointed. This has been specific;y built for video recording and does not have the read/write capabilities needed for high-performance tasks.

Backed up 10.5TB of data over 1gbps LAN - which took 28 hours.
Only used once a month for offsite NAS backup.
A lot of small files to write, Skyhawk handled fine. HDD didn't get to warn.
Being a surveillance HDD is just a added feature. It's still a HDD, and good for other uses.
So far, so good. Good value for money.
Will update after one years use.
will have a total of 8 tb's.
Only drawback was I called amazon customer service to say there was no screws for the hard drive, was told to
return, and another will be sent out with screws, but the second one didn't come with screws, had to run around to
different computer shops for them because the screws for the seagate are a bit smaller. Hoping the next one will have screws.

came in a Anti-static bag well packaged, fitted in to my CCTV due to the old drive failing after nearly ten years of constant use also a Sea-gate, Edit with a update, now dead after 18 months, while it says 3 year warranty i am happy it lasted 18 months for the price, i would have been angry if some event had been lost due to the failing, however it shows weekly cheeking is worth it, seams they not made how they used to be.
Has been working brilliantly on my 8 channel system recording continuously without any issues.
Very pleased that I have 2TB rather than original 1TB capacity.
Seagate is an excellent brand for camera surveillance, well worth the extra money for consumer satisfaction in my opinion.
I ordered 2 more but after 10 days no delivery I cancelled my order.
That purchase when cancelled disapered from my account completely.
After multiple calls with Amazon now my £500 Refund is expected...
