The price will drop in cart.

You will need to generate a $15 off $100 coupon above. You could also stack it with the $10 off $100 Coupons.com Offer if you are so inclined to bring it down to $124.99 + FS.

count me in when there is a slick deal at newegg... the tax at TD kills it for me most of the time on the hard drive deals especially when I would pay tax on the pre rebate price

Cool Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)

every manufacture has horror stories and drives that been going strong for years... so just buy cheap with the longest warranty and always back up your data in a minimum of 2 places...and a 3rd offsite for at the very least the important personal stuff you would hate to lose (cloud or at your office or family members house) in-case of natural disaster or robbery...

I have at least 5 seagates (1.5TB-4TB) and most have been in service for 3-5 years and going strong... not one issue... 2 of them are 1.5s and get daily use... and were from the supposed 1.5 bat batch days.... so go figure... I think there is mostly user error (being rough on the drives, running them 24-7 HOT without proper ventilation or cooling, moving them around and banging them on the desk when you sit them down etc...)

External drives are the problem by design when it comes to poor (non-active) cooling and premature failure imo (even if they get moved maybe 3 or 4 times in their lifespan). From the many HDDs I've owned over the years, the externals are always the first to crap out, usually right after warranty. I have several 5+ year internal drives that sit behind an intake fan in my chassis that have yet to fail. But for the record, none of them are Seagates.

What kind of hard drive that never fails? You know what, get one of these http://www.staples.com/Office-Des..._SS1024432 and put all your files in there. I guarantee you it will never ever fails. Unless you get rats or cockroaches infestation or your house burns down. EEK!

someone tried to tell me that drives run better and last longer when they are hot... EEK!shake head

my personal opinion and experience is that is the opposite of the truth, and recently I read that in a tech/computer mag where the article discussed it and the conclusion was cooler is better for the drive vs hotter

knowing this its the users fault if they run their external drives hot. Ive gone as far as putting 2-3 stacked nickles on each corner and having a fan run some air on the external when in use (esp the hotter months of summer where its really hot where I live) and I can tell a HUGE difference in the temperature of the drive.to me my data is impt and I prefer to not have drive failures so if running a fan or laptop cooler under them while in use helps, then its worth it to me... I wouldnt expect everyone to go the extra mile to protect their externals from pre mature death and failure but I do it myself... treat them like newborn babies is my moto! I do what works for me and so far so good...

but I have to 100% agree with you design the case so that you have at the very minimum some access to passive cooling from the ambient air. The seagates are getting this a little with their holes type design on the external cases nowadays, so thats good... I realize having a internal fan is not cost effective and it makes externals loud and even bulkier, in the past I had a WD my book I think it was... 500GBx 2 and it has a internal fan...and damn that thing was like listening to a airplane take off and so thats where I got the idea of adding a small fan and that drive lasted forever and I sold it after years of use.. think this is an example of the fan LOL https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DreW5_n9gfY but I think mine was much louder...

Be careful of td delayed offers as td is shady and will do everything possible to make your order ineligible for the delayed cc offers.
Ex. If you have to complete your order by November for a cc cashback they will delay the invoice till December etc. If you need to reach a certain amount they will split invoice and bill you separately.
Just be aware of such practices and note that you may not receive those cc offers when purchasing.
Only trust what td offers immediately off as well as their rebates.

Seagate hard drives have horrible reliability. I realize that I am just a random poster on the internet with an unsubstantiated claim but... if you search carefully you will find that Seagate failure rates are ~10%/year compared to < 2% for other manufacturers. Seek and you will find.
