As good as I had hoped for and I set high standards.
Obviously I did not buy this for blinding speed, but rather for storage capacity. This is why when I give it five stars for performance I obviously mean it in that context. Read more

I'm extremely disappointed with this product, as the manufacturer does not state it's requirements. For the drive to even be detected by your system, you need a motherboard with UEFI and a bios that supports a 3TB drive. There wasn't even an instruction slip saying that, nor was there any information that OS older than Vista can't use the capacity. Add to that the frequent issue with Windows 7 not displaying the correct drive space (746GB instead of 3TB), and you have one of the worst products I have ever bought on Ebay.

Obviously I did not buy this for blinding speed, but rather for storage capacity. This is why when I give it five stars for performance I obviously mean it in that context.

3TB at the time of purchase gave me the most GB per pound compared to 2TB or lower capacity drives. in fact this 3TB drive was cheaper than some other drives which were of lower capacity.

I have a well ventilated Housing (a CoolerMaster HAF X) so the drive, because it spins at 7200 RPM, getting a bit hotter than drives spinning at 5200 is not a consideration.

I am very happy with it, and the couple of pennies I might have saved on electricity per year with a slower spinning drive is just not important to me.

In fact if people were really interested in saving electricity they would get themselves a decent PSU (I have a Corsair 850 AX) which will REALLY make a difference in the energy consumption of the computer.

A reasonably priced large drive I have three of these in an Icydock caddy they seem to perform well using windows 7 64 bit
if you are thinking of using it with Win XP then you will need to partition it as xp only see's just over 2Tb (seagate disc wizard will do this)
Also if you are planning to use it as a C drive you will need vista or win7 64 bit (the 32 bit versions are not compatible)
I have been using them for a few months now with no problems,they are not the fastest of drives but suit my needs for data/Photo storage a case of get what you pay for.I would happily recommend them for storage backup drives

First of all, the drive is great. It's a standard issue Seagate - in that the quality is good, and it's got a big capacity for the price too.

I haven't noticed any heat or noise issues - although I am running several HDDs at once within a Drobo, so this could be masked. It is nice and quick.

Some people may face issues re it's size being >3tb, but I understand that Seagate themselves now provide solution software for this where they can split down the drive into smaller chunks for 32bit systems (lots of XP owners, for example). I have a Mac, and initially tried slipping it straight into my Drobo - which failed initially but only because the Drobo firmware needed updating to accommodate >3tb drives. So again, the drive was a winner - but other hardware you might use with it may well need some attention depending on how you're using it.

Works great even with Win XP (after installing free Seagate software)

I wanted a 3TB drive for data backup. It works a treat in my Orico mobile rack (just eject the hdd & pop it in the fire safe until the next backup).

Installing was simple, but Win XP will only "see" 745GB until Seagate DiscWizard (free software) unlocks the rest of the hdd. I understand Win 7 & 8 do not have this restriction.
