Type of review

This is the very first time that one of my hard drives has failed so suddenly, but thankfully there was merely a system on it and nothing crucial. I am currently confused on which business to choose. Something to be said about Seagate's decision to stop monitoring the quality. It is possible that this will save steel on the components.

A wonderful product, it's nice to use.

We buy dozens of these disks for the office. The marriage was returned only 1 time - it fell down a week after the start of operation. I can’t say anything about the noise level, because, as noted above, it is operated in the office. Not the fastest of the disks - I would not buy one at home.

Does not meet my expectations, it was not worth buying.

It looks like this company is losing credibility. The previous disk also "grunted" Barracuda 72022022 1 TB, but when I took the ST500, it was still alive. Now I need to "get" the info from both. and who else has infa alive on this disk, then hurry to copy it, otherwise it will be too late. Apparently the marriage continues to come to us.

Just super, it's beautifully made, I'm very happy with it.

There were 8 pieces, 4 in raid-0, the rest were separate, one broke in 4 years - the oldest one, I bought it in 2022. Mechanical failure - the head broke and cut through the plate. Raid-0 works around the clock, I can’t wait until it dies, I’m tired of raptors.

The best thing I've ever used, I recommend it to everyone!

Worked from 12202222 to 11202222 in a home computer (5 years) as the only drive. Switched to an SSD the other day. No problems were identified during the entire period of operation. Reliable disk - SMART is normal, there are no bad blocks. I am very pleased with the disk.

I wasn't thrilled with the product, but it can be used.

The OScomnstantly hangs during any simple operations, while the RAM and CPU load is minimal, but the disk load is under 100%, at first I thought that I got a defective disk, but I did SeaTools tests, everything is normal. I did a speed test and most likely the problem is the speed of writing small files, for example, for 512KB, on my old disk it is 4220222 MB / s ! The test was performed on a freshly installed OS + drivers, the disk was marked and formatted with a standard utility during OS…

  • it works;
  • - very slow; - small volume practically at the price of a terabyte.

Not at all what I expected.Terrible!

My office will be getting two of these IRU Office 511 computers. This model comes with a hard disk that has the model number ST500DM002-1BD142 put in it. I made him aware of the cracking sound that was coming from the hard drive while it was running, and I decided to check it using the MHDD tool. There are non-zero values for the following SMART parameters: 1, 7, 195, 240, 241, and 241 (in addition, the RAW values include at least 6-7 digits). During the scan, there were no bad sectors…

  • I do not see.
  • Already a brand new disk has weak SMART parameters, as well as significant cracking while it is being used.

I like everything, the price and quality are acceptable.

Different pros: Works for a very long time! Already 2022 days. There are slight signs that it is getting tired, but so far there are no bad sectors. Pretty quiet and doesn't get hot. Has some cons The speed of work is lower than many other similar ones. Initially, this was and remains despite attempts to set it up. Not very suitable for the system disk of a fast computer.

A great option for this money, I definitely recommend it!

Got pros: Very reliable. My model has been running for 45,000 hours and is still in good condition. There are only 3900 inclusions. Some cons: In 2022, far from the highest read and write speeds. And also creates noise, although not so strong. In any case, it is better to take an SSD.

Great product, best quality.

However, it had already been creaking for two years of work, during which time there had been no critical jambs behind this disk. It was replaced due to the fact that the attribute of the state of the disk surface reached 54% mechanics up to 74%, the software seems to say that everything is fine, but Windows began to work slowly several times at startup, file system recovery crashed, and it was cured by "Long repair "using the software that was downloaded from the website of the manufacturer…

  • Nimble, relatively quiet, consumes little
  • It will hold together from the moment you buy it, which is not to say that it is robust, but it compels you to consider the security of the data and the state of the disk.

There are five disks like this one in the computer, along with another barracuda-shaped disk that costs 750. Taking into consideration the fact that the disks have been in my computer for the past four years and do not work for only eight hours per day, each of the disks from a different year of production, ranging from 2022 to 2022, has already completed a respectable number of hours of operation. In all of the time that I personally used it, including recording, uploading, and information…

  • Durability, a reasonable speed considering the price, and noise level (works quietly)
  • Heat

It was a terrible purchase, but I wasted my money.

I have always used Barracudas, and I have never had any issues with them. However, the time has come for me to change the screw, so I purchased a ssdshku for Windows. For the games "THIS," I was prepared to take a smaller volume, but they are not currently on sale. After a few days, I started to get out, but then I took root, let me down for ten months, was not recognized, flew out of the system, and so on, and so forth, and in the end I died, went to the store, and had it changed under…

  • peaceful, not dull
  • died without having worked for a year, and from the initial days of his illness, he suffered from chronic sneezing.

I am completely satisfied, item complies with description.

Took for 2500 in 2022. Basically, having a fast computer, proper system optimization - the speed will not strain, provided that you are not familiar with SSD. You can take another one and make RAID0 and get a speed of 140 mb / s. During use, the information did not disappear and errors did not appear on the disk - and this is the main thing. With its pros. Volume; quality; not a strong vibration (unlike others that I had) Its cons: With 100% disk activity, you can forget about other…

Terrible product, not worth the money at all!

It’s a pity that I didn’t listen to the old people who said that the barracudas were dead in piles and installed the barracuda in the office PCs. Here is the result - the first one went .

  • price and only
  • early breakdown

Revainrating 5 out of 5

I definitely recommend buying, I didn't notice any disadvantages.

when running 24,000 hours, not a single bad sector, though I rarely turn off the computer, only 140 shutdown cycles, I heard that they often die from frequent turning on and off, which is probably why it still works, the second one works the same in the DVR, constantly writes, here for more than two years, and also not a single bad sector, I bought it in the region a little later, so it has about 18,000-20,000 operating hours on it, I don’t remember exactly.

  • durable, quiet, fast.
  • no.

A reliable product for all occasions, the quality is at the level.

Excellent hard, I've been using it for almost a year now. The speed is at the level of competitors, the price is adequate. There were many reviews about the low reliability of this series of hard drives, but apparently I was lucky, the crystal disk shows that the disk is in good condition, there are no problems. The only drawback is the rather loud sound of operation. It is very annoying at night. However, after half a year, the fans began to work louder than hard, so this drawback became…

  • 1) Price 2) Speed

Excellent product, the best quality.

There are 5 such disks in the computer and one (also a barracuda) for 750. The disks of various years of manufacture, from 2022 to 2022, each has already run a fair amount of hours, taking into account the fact that the disks have been in my computer for the last four years, do not work only 8 hours a day. For all the time I personally used it with constant recording / uploading / information, not a single broken sector popped up, not a single error - in general, the worst thing that was in…

  • Durability, normal speed for such money, noise level (works quietly)
  • Heat

Best I have ever used, great product for anyone!

Given the availability of ssd with a speed an order of magnitude greater than that of disk, comparing different models of home hard drives by the criterion of a slight difference in the speed of writing / reading looks somehow strange, such as the speed of access to a closet. In terms of closet reliability - this one has been working for more than 5 or 6 years almost daily. I personally did not give reasons to pour out miasma here or in the guarantee center. (according to the law of meanness…

  • More than 5 years regularly rumbles. No glitches, data loss, bad sectors, etc., and the PSU is pretty gay.
