User reviews

When it receives pieces of data, like from a file being written from a Wi-Fi source, it gives a grunt every few seconds. When writing a continuous file, the grunt is more-muffled, probably because it is a continuous grunt and you tend to ignore it. It is one on my noisiest drives but it's not a squeal or rattle, which would be very bad. All in all, better than most of my Western Digital drives. I would buy Seagate again but consider a remote location for this drive, if possible. I still like the 3 TB Seagates if you have enough slots for these small drives. They are inexpensive, quiet, and fast. The 4 TB and 6 TB Seagates run hot and the 8 TB Seagate is slow. The 12 TB IronWolf series is very nice and is another sweet spot in the Seagate lineup.
Too new to tell if they will last long & if reliable. Havent bought Seagate drives for over a decade because of reliability issues. Taking a chance on this drive + price was acceptable w/ Ebay Bucks 10% promo.. NOTE: Buy and make sure you get Seagate 5 Years Warranty. I bought 2 from memoryonly and 1 of them was out of warranty when I check with Seagate.
Great drive for Plex Server. Had to rebuild my system and went with a much larger data drive and this was very affordable.
