just bought a Seagate barracuda hard drive... How much fucked am I?
>>
aaa!! i run away from seagate
>>
Hopefully not fucked at all.

Seagate got better over the years. If you bought any apart from the 3TB one, you are safe
>>
Very fucked. In fact you should know you effectively paid money for 0GB.

Bought mine a year ago and it failed me after a couple of months which is the last time I will have ever bought Seagate.
Listen to this anon's wisdom >>52237467

I'm thinking about getting the Western Digital 2TB External, Anyone has experience with it?
>>
Lol buy a hitachi nas drive you damn noob.
>>

What caused all their failures in 2014 that was apparently so quickly fixed in 2015?
>>
>>52238208
Bad batch? Poor quality control enforcement? Short supply (i.e. poor quality control enforcement)?
Who knows. If you check Amazon and Newegg's user reviews, you can actually see a pattern of bad batches from people who bought Seagate Barracudas between Spring of 2013 to Fall of 2014. Summer of 2015 also seems to have its fair share of bad batches.
>>
>>52238208
I think they were even worse before 2013.
>>
Just make sure your data is encrypted so you can return it without worries. Seagate warranty policy is one of the best and easiest to use.

>I bought a 3tb one
>go to check
>it's a barracuda
Tell me, how fucked am I? Haven't yet done anything because ram issues
>>
>>52239428
Just do a SMART check on the drive.
>>
>Seagache Barracruda
Yo fuckd up

>>52237427

What are the chances of it coming from Samsung's old hdd factory?
>>
>>52240233
That's easy to check, since Samsung only had factories in China and Seagate's Chinese factories only churned out a specific family of HDD.
>>
>>52237427
I have a bunch of old Seagate drives still ticking. The only hard disk I've ever had outright fail was a Toshiba. I don't think it really matters.
>>
I've been rocking 1tb seagate barracudas for 4 years with no failures. I've only killed one hdd before and it was a super old 160gb WD.
>>
>>52237427
Completely. Why would you do this? Seagate have been horrible for years.
>>
I want to get a 2 or 3TB hdd for a home NSM (Mostly shits and giggles), what good companies exist for drives like that? I would like to avoid anything for enterprise-level servers because I like money, but could be willing to spring for one.
>>
I mean it isn't hitachi or WD, but you couldve done worse. I've had two barracuda's, one dropped on me in 3 years, other has been going strong for 5 years.
