Broken by JoPereira Broken by JoPereira
A better title would be "broken piece of shit" which failed me with just few months of use.

No engie, you can't fix it. No one can. It's broken, like my faith in reliable hardware.

Should have at least frozen it to extract your lost data while you can.

I've never had any luck with seagates.

Western Digital, on the other hand, survived through things that hard-drives were not meant to survive, like the entire computer falling from a height of 3 feet.

I just got my Seagate 1TB replaced (free of charge) because my previous one crashed. That one actually looks exactly like mine - Barracuda 7200.12 :D.

But overall, Seagate still sucks :D

Am I the ONLY one who is of the opinion that Seagate is better than Western Digital. Over my computer lifetime. I have bought many a drive. All the seagate ones are working like a charm. Any time I have gotten a Western Digital drive it was crap. I have a 1.5tb drive and it works great. I plan on getting a second soon. As they drop in price I want to do a nice Raid 5 with a half dozen 1.5tb drives and be set for a while. So I don't know Hardware like Hard Drives are iffy. It is not about the company but WHERE it was made. Some HDs have defects, some manufacturers have more HDs with defects. Some manufacturers simply have ONE shitty factory that turns out crap and it is a roll of the dice if it will work.

Bottom line: Check your S.M.A.R.T. regularly and if it is important back it up weekly. If it is really important use off site back-ups. Mozy, and Carbonite, are good choices. Mozy gives you a free 2gb, to boot.

Seagates tend to have basic issues. I've never lost a Western Digital drive, and if you're worried, try getting a few and set up a slick raid 0 or raid 5

Don't let these guys bash your impression of Seagate. I have drives that are going strong for years from Seagate!! But like all hardware they are subject to failure. With HDDs its not a matter of IF they will fail but WHEN! Be prepared for the inevitable and backup regularly!!

I ran your drives info and it is STILL under SEAGATES warranty. Return the drive and get a new one (if it is indeed faulty) from Seagate.

Seagate? Must be bad luck or something, but last year I had failing Maxtor desktop HD less than 2 months after buying (and Maxtor is from Seagate nowadays); and also I got a strange "almost-crash" on my Seagate notebook HD.

Fortunately, I haven't lost any data, but since last year I started avoiding seagate hard disks.

Don't forget to try freezing it if you're getting a Click of Death!

And yeah, seagate sells asses disguised as hardware. Go with Western Digital (not for externals!) or Maxtor if you value your data.

Well, the printer works... *look at head smudges on boots* ...sigh.

But really, Seagate hard-drives... *shudder* also remember to check cables and motherboard couplings before declaring it cold turkey and giving it the bin.

Seagate: When the drive clicks, the fun has only begun.

Yeah Seagate is rather bad, but every Western Digital or Toshiba harddrive I owned has held up till the end of their 1M running hours lifespan. Heck, a old fart of a tower has a Western Digital Bigfoot inside it, and it all works even after being 15 years old and thoroughly loved (used by everyone in the house).
