Catastrophic failure within 3 days
Reviewed in Australia on 5 September 2019
These disks would normally be fine (I have several 5+ year old barracudas that are *still* going strong) but 2 out of 2 of these failed within 3 days of use. Starts with a couple of read errors and quickly spirals into reallocated sectors, write errors and finally the disk completely refusing to function.
I suspect getting these shipped from the US is leading to some damage in transit, although this isn't obvious from the shipping - perhaps the two I received were from a dropped pallet or something.
