From someone with fairly extensive experience with these drives:

I have 40 of these (yes, you read that correctly) in 2x Supermicro 2u with backplanes being driven by LSI-SAS controllers in IT mode. All disks are in 4-disc RAID-10 arrays (2 striped RAID groups per LVM logical group) being served up to 2 clustered Hyper-V nodes by 4Gbps fiber channel using LIO. Total storage presented to the cluster is ~90 TB and is leveraged as a single logical file system in the VM by Stablebit's DrivePool.

Have I experienced failures? Yes, probably 2 or 3 in 4+ years time of 24x7x365 operation - which I would unscientifically ascertain is no more or less than any other vendor. In fact, my backup server which runs exclusively 3.5" WD drives has had a higher rate of failure.

Considering that most of these drives were shipped to me rattling around in a box, clearly packaged by some idiot who can't tie his/her own shoes, that's not too bad IMO.

Disclaimer: My use case is WORM (write once, ready many), YMMV.
Looks here could easily have meant the specs on paper look nice or that the deal itself looked nice.

Is this portable because it doesn't need a power supply? The USB connection to pc also powers it?

When it comes to data storage... looks aren't the first thing you look for in a product.

Does this fall under Costco's 90-day return policy?

I wouldn't trust Seagate for anything too critical. But that's just me.

That page indicated to me that this does not fall under the 90 day return policy.

I've had a 2tb running for like 5 years strong, I should upgrade but I'm thinking SSD next.
These things are great, all drives can potentially fail, if you're worried about that you should backup to multiple.
I read a breakdown a while back going over these drives and the likelihood of them failing, If I remember the 2 and the 5tb were the most reliable, the others failing more often.
Great price!
