That's was fast. The 5TB external is OOS.

Edit: oh, OP stated it would be (OOS) and we should wait a few hours.

Is this going to be a theme. The odd TB drives will be poor? I believe the 3TB drives had lots of reported issues.

I had 2 2TB Seagate's. One was taken out of service months after warranty expired with thousands of remapped sectors and the other started accumulating them. It's now in an external enclosure for occasional use. I don't buy Seagate any more. I have several 200GB Barracudas closing on on 10 years that just keep going. Too bad those days are gone.

It's funny (but mostly sad) how many people, who aren't buying Seagate drives anymore or absolutely hate Seagate, come in every Seagate post here, on Slickdeals, to take a crap. It would be nice if you guys gave it a rest, if you don't like a company's products, don't buy them.

Yeah, I always heard to stay away from the 3TB WD Reds because of failure issues. Seems like even numbers are safer. (Disclaimer: I am not a hard drive scientist)

I've had both WD's and Seagate's fail, so I've given up on hard drive loyalty and just look for the best deals, keeping in mind I'll need to replace them in 1-2 years.

The best use of these forums is to know whether it's a good product and a good deal. For people who don't read every hard drive thread, informing people that you think it's a crappy product is a very useful service.

Brand bashing is not helping people make an informed decision. Anyone saying one drive over another drive brand is just like someone saying bmw over mercedes or ford over chevy. Just garbage.

Post stats from independent review sites otherwise people are just posting out of narcissism to get attention out of it.

Facts are real.

Opinions are bullshit. Wink
