I've had only 1 drive ever quit on me. And that's in almost 30 years of owning pc's. I still have some 20mb and 40mb drives from the late 80's (that btw cost more back then than you would pay for a complete computer these days) that still spin up and run. And I have stacks of other drives ranging from 120GB to 500GB I pulled after upgrading to newer computers that ALL still function (many I have converted to external USB enclosures).
And I've got quite a few Seagates of more recent vintage (1-3TB) that run constantly in my current hardware without ever having displayed any signs of data corruption or hardware issues.
Maybe some of y'all need to spend a few more $$$ on cooling those drives, better power supplies, etc as I suspect that is why most of you see issues.

Thanks, that seems pretty easy to open it.

If you don't have the tool shown in the above link, you can use a old credit/debit card, better yet use (2)... One to pry the other moving it into postilion so the enclosure doesn't pop back together.
BTW: Don't use something made out of metal, try to use something with a wide blade if you value the ability to be able to put the drive back into the enclosure if needed. EG: For warranty purposes.
PS: I got this drive about a month ago, and it's a regular 3TB with SATA connections... It's not soldered to the board.
RE: Manufacturers promoting/selling, hiding in enclosures drives that are "Soldered" to the controller board.
Note to self, and a shout out to fellow tech guys... I don't like the concept of a hard drive that's soldered in.. and NEITHER should you!
We need to BOYCOTT those drives, sent a clear message to manufacturers that such is NOT acceptable!

|Hrshycro||How is this a deal? I got a 3.0 Seagate 3tb external for $99 two months ago, and they've been $85 and $80 since then. Did hard drive prices go back up over the past month?|

DEAD? cant add to cart.

So I had it in my cart, was ready to check out.. decided to give it further consideration, looked up the specs of the drive in side.. After some further consideration, decided to pull the trigger & it is now OOS.
Lol. Suppose I'll have to look out for a better deal now, regardless.

So for me.. it's a matter of getting that, or waiting for a better deal. Still on the fence.
