I wonder how it compares to what's inside this -

Seagate Backup Plus 3TB USB 3.0 Black Desktop Hard Drive STCA3000101 - which is also $119 right now but getting no love on SD.

Someone on NewEgg Reviews wrote about the Backup Plus drive -
"It's the Seagate Barracuda ST3000DL001 Hard drive that is actually in the unit."

Both 2 year warranty. I need a drive to run 24/7 for HTPC - speed isn't as important as durability, quiet, and running cool....but it would get noisy anyway if I put it in my 2 bay JBOD w/fan.

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?
Here's the prob you may not have either wty since you cracked the case, the external wty is void if they determine you've tampered or altered the setup. Also if the drive is tracked in their internal database as being part of an external kit then they may refuse to honor that as well. Hopefully you never have to find out, but folks have been bitten.

Regarding the firmware to fix the "chirping" issue. If you get a drive that has firmware CC9D, you won't not be able to "upgrade" to firmware CC4H that has the fix.

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.

Sounds like you did.. it was $90 last BF.

I got one of the 3TB amazon deals, just never saw the $90 deal in my deal alerts, any links so I can see where things went wrong?
I was able to snag 4 following this thread, and these posts.

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

I ended up putting mine in this weekend and setup in Windows 2012 Essentials as storage spaces. Figure I'd try that out and see how it goes. Streams my movies to wireless Samsung TV without any issues.

If you read the Seagate forums, you will find that people have been able to get rhe warranty as an external drive as they allow you to break it open for "data recovery" purposes. Just get permission from them to do so when you get the RMA and before you send it back and you will be fine.

You will not get warranty as an internal drive since it has firmware specific to external drives and will be in their databases as external.

It's stil very much YMMV, just stating that for folks expecting to crack open one of these and magically have a longer wty - it's a roll of the dice so good luck.

Bought the drive. Didn't want to wait for black Friday for it to be $90. Still available. Didn't like the slower spindle speed of WD green and WD Red.

this is a solid drive, but i sort of have a silly problem with it
I have one from an earlier SD that I use as the "data" drive in my recent build that has an Intel SSD for the OS. But this drive often goes into "semi-sleep" state when not in use and when it is time to get something from it or write something to it, I literally hear the drive starts spinning and there is a good long 4-5 seconds gap each time this happens.
once it awakens, the drive performs really fast, though.
It might just be some setting that needs to be done, but I thought I should mention this. I also had to do some special Seagate driver stuff before Win7 could recognize all 3TBs
Win7 (or Vista) should be able to recognize the entire capacity of this drive without having to do anything "special". XP requires tweaking in order for it to see the entire drive.

As far as the drive spinning down, you can always change that in your Power Options -> Change plan settings -> Change advanced power settings. In the dialog, expand Hard disk and change the timeout to Never (defaults to 20 minutes).

As far as XP, I have an XP install on a secondary drive which occasionally I boot to via my BIOS. My main OS is Windows 7, which is what I will set this drive up with and use primarily. Let's say I partition it as two 1.5TB partitions and format it in Windows 7. If I now boot to XP, will XP see the partitions normally and use the drive normally?
