I can't find a link to it, but the 3tb Seagate Expansion was $90 and the 3tb Backup Plus was $100 on Amazon right around black friday. Both of those drives are external versions of this drive.

what's the latest firmware for st3000dm001-1ch166 ?

mine says CC24. and there's nothing on the seagate website.. something about CC24 firmware being the latest for oem drives

also whats apm?
like daniel said, new firmware is at http://knowledge.seagate.com/arti...Q/223651en

also as he said, apm is advanced power management. If you use a tool like crystaldiskinfo you can disable apm (under function>advanced feature) and the noise/sluggishness stops. The newer firmware basically lowers the value for apm (at least for this particular issue). There were a few blogposts about the time it was fixed in firmware about a specific setting where if you set it lower this would stop.

Read this if you are thinking about using these in a NAS. I would get the WD Red.

Well, if it actually is the chinese drive it shouldn't brick, the firmware update should just say there's no valid disk...but I was under the impression that those drives were shipping with firmware that was essentially the new version that fixed the head parking issue...

You sir are wrong -- http://slickdeals.net/f/5546480-3TB-Seagate-Barracuda-7200-RPM-64MB-SATA-3-5-Internal-Hard-Drive-90-Free-Shipping?v=1

Read this thead. It was the Seagate 3TB 7200RPM 64mb cache drive. I should know, I started the thread and bought three of the drives.
I stand corrected. Wow, that is insanely cheap! I have seen the green drives many times for 90, but i missed that one.

don't beat yourself up for not getting this drive when it was $90, it's norm price will definitely drop down to that range in a few months.

I would pay about $20 more for the WD Red 3TB, which was on sale recently for $140. Seems like a better design.
Could you elaborate on that a bit?

Makes a diffrence only in NAS systems with hardware controllers configured with short time outs for enterprise use. You will find such NAS systems recommending Enterprise class drives. Consumer NAS systems use software RAID or with longer timeouts (a few seconds once in a while makes no difference to consumer systems). They typically supplement RAID with their own SMART surface monitoring tools to detect and take action for errors detected rather than let the RAID behave dumbly during reads and writes.

Here is what i found on this drive when i got it during BF:
"I followed your steps and took mine apart. Once the top shell is taken off, there are a couple metal clips along the outside of the metal housing near the ports. These can be spread slightly apart so you can more carefully pull the drive out if needed (just don't bend the ports/circuit board). I took some pics with my phone for a little bit of perspective:

My manufacture date is 09/2012. Want to know the best part? I used SeaTools to test the drive beforehand and it all came out fine, after about 12 hours :/. I used the warranty checker (link in the SeaTools app) on seagate.com to check the drives warranty - i believe it was January 2013. This is no surprise (it should be a year) however, the internal drive had a warranty out to 25-Dec-2015 LMAO. I should have never bought that squaretrade 2 year warranty Big Grin.

edit: I can also confirm again that the model is ST3000DM001 and no, the enclosure wasn't soldered to the drive shake head."

So roll the dice, you may get a better warranty with an 'external drive' LMAO.

Also, is there a way to quote a post from another thread?

While I have 7 Seagate 3TB's, I'd buy the WD Red 3TB's for $20 more apiece for "big storage usage." Better head parking management, lower power usage, lower temperature, 3 year warranty, and supposedly with its design optimized for a NAS, better durability. That's even though the Seagate's are actually faster at most operations than the Red's. But I use HDD's for big media storage and SSD's for speed.

Someone wanting higher speed HDD's won't like the Red's as much.

The AnandTech and Tom's Hardware review describe the Red well:

Hope that helps.

Thanks
