Decent price if you need one right this moment, but it was $20 less (and Frontpage) last month.

No, it was $5 less. That was factoring in the $15 off eBay Flash Coupon.

I grabbed a couple of the 5TB Seagate external drives. I've been needing bigger drives for file server backup drives. These will do nicely. Thanks OP!

I'm torn, this has fairly bad reviews on newegg for drive failure but out of only 70 something reviews. But great 41/2 star review out of 2,900 on Amazon. I wonder if a chunk of Amazon reviews r fake.

I'm looking for an external drive but that one gets pretty poor reviews. Plus I need a Mac compatible drive. Any suggestions for an external hard drive, Mac compatible, in the 2-4GB range?

Thanks,
GG

You do realize that pretty much every hard drive is "Mac compatible", right? The drives you see being sold as "Mac" drives only have a cosmetic difference, in order to better match a Mac, appearance-wise. As long as the drive has an interface that your Mac has, whether it's Firewire, USB, Thunderbolt, SATA, IDE, or SCSI, you can use it. There is also sometimes some poor, oddball backup software included, that you can usually find a better, free alternative for.

I'd recommend never buying that Samsung 750 evo. It's their way of screwing people on their old outdated tech (2d nand) and keeping the price of 850s higher than they would be otherwise.

These lower quality products were developed to sell at low prices in down market 3rd world Asian countries. they brought it here to charge Americans more. Absolutely NOT worth the price.

Avoid. Send a message to Samsung by ignoring these unless they cut the price in half.

Amazon subtly defrauds people by lumping reviews of different products together. you have to make sure you select just the one drive to get a better idea of what you can expect.

bottom line is that Amazon has gotten sleazy (sleazier?) and they contribute to the fake review problem and misleading customers.

It seems this 2TB HGST 7K3000 (vs 7K2000) is also on sale for 30 bucks, also refurb.
Are they used for different purposes, or is it the same model line? It sounds like the 7K2000 has some extra features, but it could have just been left out of the 7K3000 description.

Were you able to read the Smart data off the drive? For me, the disk is apparently not smart capable. It also won't identify itself; I can't find out what model drive it is without cracking the enclosure open.


Never had this happen before. Has Seagate installed a crappy usb controller in there that is blocking identification and Smart operations?
