    Excellent value

    Price - $299 for 6TB is hard to ignore Performance - for a consumer drive is excellent. I placed 2 of them in my G-Technology thunderbolt enclosure in RAID0 and am achieving 288MB/sec writes and 296MB/sec reads on my Mac Mini. Noise - exceptionally ... Read more

    Fast but odd

    I have two identical 6TB drives. I get random grinding/seek noises on both drives. Reminds me of a 3.5" floppy seek. Seems to happen more when the computer is idle. I remember that my 3TB seagate drives from a few years back beeped and a firmware ... Read more

    5 out of 5 eggs Awesome

    Pros: I always buy Seagate because I feel they are the best. That's all I own. Have had 0 problems with any of my drives. I have 3TB, 6TB and some lower ends and all are working flawlessly.

    Cons: I would have to agree that when formated it is 5.45.

    And I didn't get any software that was supposed to be in the box.

    Other that....Awesome!!!!

    Bottom Line: When you go to install and you go through disk management be sure to rescan your drives so it will find it. I had to. Then it will pop up.

    5 out of 5 eggs Good drive

    Pros: I own 2 of these drives, purchased about 6 months apart. So far both drives are working, and functioning as expected.

    Cons: None

    Bottom Line: Just be aware, as others have said, that the screw holes on this drive are non-standard. Be sure it will work with your system before purchasing. Also, I installed these drives in one of those 5in3 drive cages. They fit, but it's an extremely tight fit. The drive may be a milimeter or 2 thicker than most 3.5inch drives. Which is great for me, since I can only use 2 screws to attach the drive to the caddy. The snug fit helps to give me an extra bit of confidence that the drives are stable.

    5 out of 5 eggs 6 TB drives

    Pros: Arrived in working condition. Set up w/o issues. I'm using two as a Raid 1 in my rig.

    Cons: none

    Bottom Line: Just remember that they need to be initialized first before they can be formatted. Win 7 users should right click on "Computer" --> Manage -->Disk Management and let Windows initialize them. They will need to be in your computer and not connected by either eSata or USB. Hope this helps.

    5 out of 5 eggs Great HDD

    Pros: Great price, excellent speed, and massive storage.

    Cons: Not actually 6TB, but this is a known issue. :)

    Bottom Line: Make sure you download Seagate's DiscWizard from their website if you want to be able to use the entire drive. It will setup the hard drive space and then you can access it through Windows Administrative tools, Disk Management.

    1 out of 5 eggs Beware

    Pros: They appeared to be a good price

    Cons: I used to view WD and Seagate as being comparable products. But early this year I had to replace six 3 & 4 TB drives. One failed outright and the others all showed abnormally high error rates.

    After reviewing current feedback on Seagate drives I dropped over a $1000 to buy Hitachi drives.

    Bottom Line: It turned out that Seagate cost me a grand to replace their junk drives and much more to pay employees to recover & transfer data.

    Seagate claims "supported by 30 years of trusted performance, reliability and simplicity."

    Clearly this statement is no longer true.

    3 out of 5 eggs I had difficulties, but it works

    Pros: High capacity for the price. Seagate is a strong brand.

    Cons: As some others mentioned, my drive also had incorrectly placed mounting holes. they were too high by about 2mm. I had to tilt the drive at an angle to get a screw in and could only get 1 screw to fit. I taped the rest of the drive down with electrical tape. The drive worked fine upon first boot. Copied 200gb of random files, but after that the transfer speed dropped to 0 and would not copy files. There was some unknown problem with writing files, but I did not have trouble reading files, except for one read error trying to open a file but I could not reproduce the error. Did some disk checks using Seatools with no problems but still wouldn't work. Checked for new firmware but none exists as of 10-10-14. Put the computer in sleep mode and tried again the next day and the drive copied files perfectly. I can't explain what happened but all of a sudden it just felt like working. I've had great experience with Seagate, all my drives are Seagate, but I've never had these problems. I deduct 1 egg for the mounting hole problem and another egg for the problem with writing files.

    Bottom Line: The drive temp is on the high side (90c) compared to 5 other Seagate drives in my rig, but overall it's within range. Overall it's a great drive but Seagate did a half-azzed job compared to the years of great experience I've had with other drives. Failing to follow the standards for mounting hole placement is ridiculous and unacceptable that Seagate slipped up. I would expect this from a junky, unknown brand but not Seagate.

    3 out of 5 eggs Price is too much

    Pros: High Capacity drive that performs as expected.
    Not a lot of heat and quiet.

    Cons: Overpriced compared to 4 TB drives.
    Price should go down the more you buy.
    Technology is to new to guarantee reliability because it is based off writing to the same space twice after copying original data. Also makes writes slower.

    Bottom Line: You can buy 3 4 TB drives for around $123 dollars less depending on what day it is. This is no sale even with a code.
    SSD's are coming down in price, take up less space, use less energy and are incredible fast so Seagate and others have to make higher capacity drives using a technology that slows down the write process and uses have the space already written to.

    Unless you are in dire need of space then I would wait for a PROPER sale, shop around or till the price drops sharply.
    Price per TB seems high when you want a 1TB, 2TB and 3TB then you have a reasonable 4TB then have to pay extra for a 6TB as if they are giving you a deal.
    CPU's, Hard Drives and Memory are actually commodities and should go up and down based on market.
    NEWEGG is not a store front where they have to pay for all the extras yet price as if they were Tiger Direct.
    Believe me, they are still making money despite free shipping and handling.

    1 out of 5 eggs 1 of 2 DOA

    Pros: Unknown

    Cons: 1 of 2 drives ordered was DOA.

    Bottom Line: DOA is indicative of reduced/poor factory testing, unfortunately our client chose these cheaper drives as part of a custom order. Prefer WD Black or enterprise drives.

    3 out of 5 eggs Fast but odd

    Pros: Quite fast. Fresh I'm seeing up around 200MB/sec

    Cons: I have two identical 6TB drives. I get random grinding/seek noises on both drives. Reminds me of a 3.5" floppy seek. Seems to happen more when the computer is idle. I remember that my 3TB seagate drives from a few years back beeped and a firmware fixed it. Maybe this is bad firmware?
