To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Came in a bubble wrap parcel bag inside a static bag.
Comes unformatted so if anyone doesn't know what to do, search for disk management and then find the drive. Right click it and select new simple volume and just keep clicking next, editing fields of you wish to do so. Then your drive should work.
As for the format, search the system you're using to find out what's best for your use.
First thing first, hdd was hard to fit in with the previous frame. Secondly, once OS - Win 10 Pro x64 was installed, it started making noise - Clicking & Chirping / screeching noise; this still ongoing. Run the test with SeaTools, it shows PASS but run the fix ALL - Long, still getting same noise.
From the storage perspective, it is 1 TB but only gives 930 GB of usable space. Also, RAM's capacity got lowered; had 16 GB but now 15.5GB (Usable); Very strange!
I purchased Seagate 1 TB BarraCuda Pro 2.5 but came without Pro but check with SeaTools it shows 7200 RPM, 128 MB Cache, SATA 6Gb; not sure where Pro should be indicated!
I hope Amazon and Seagate will provide the replacement HDD sooner with correct specification.
Initially i purchased a refurbished drive from eBay....big mistake Then i saw this for not a lot more, and it arrived less than 14 hours later my Mac mini was up , running and quieter than before. The drive seems almost silent and round very cool . Very happy
Did not recieve the correct item as the order stated Barracudapro MODEL ST1000LMZ49 and have recieved Barracuda MODEL ST1000LM049 The Specification appears to be similar apart from the product description. Shame I only noticed after installing otherwise this would have been returned.
Bought this for my PS4. Fits well, works well, for the price is very good, so far no complaints. I don’t know how long will last but everything works just fine. If you reading this and you need for your PS4 make sure you select 2.5 inc I did a mistake at first with the size.
Popped this into by Gigabyte Brix (i3-7100u model). My Brix supports both SSD (M2) and a SATA bay so I can boot from SSD and then put large files and virtual machines on this 2TB drive. Not much to add really. Was easy to fit and works fine.
Does not work. Tried in a pc TV box and as an external hard drive. Not recognised by any Have cannot format it. Tried to populate it to see what is on the big far zero. Do not recommend. Not convinced by the quality either.
Great drive for installing games to, I don't understand why people say 5400rpm drives are slow on pc gaming this is exactly what I used it for I literally filled it up to the max I literally have like 4gb left and all my games load really fast even for the 5400rpm slow rotation.
I have always bought Seagate hard drives. Quality product, silent running and long lasting. I needed yet another external hard drive, for my video/music files, I also purchased a caddy and was installation was easy. Formatted to Fat32 and away we go.
