    3TB for Synology NAS, January 17, 2012

    This is one of the select few 3TB drives approved by Synology for use in a variety of their NAS devices, so I put 4 of these in a DS411 in SHR with one disk redundancy (basically RAID 5). While anyone will tell you enterprise hard drives are better in RAID 5 or 6 configurations – and they are right, for the most part – it’s hard to deny the big price difference in going enterprise: 3TB enterprise drives are well over $550 right now due to the recent Thailand flood and it may be some time before that price drops significantly. While these drives weren’t as cheap as the 3TB WD Caviar Green varieties, I will NEVER put Caviar Greens in a RAID 5 again, so the ST3000DM001 quickly rose to the top of my admittedly short list.

    I think it’s important to point out that IntelliPower (WD) and CoolSpin (Hitachi) technologies are not really ideal for any kind of RAID array using parity. WD Caviar Green drives, especially, are known to sometimes not power up when needed, ultimately resulting in them getting dropped from the RAID array. A good NAS like the DS411 will put the drives into hibernation after 10 minutes of no activity, so you don’t really need the benefit of “eco-friendly” drives in this kind of RAID anyways. Plus, with 7200RPM you will get speed improvements, so it’s a no brainer to pick a drive like this over those.

    That said, of course these do not have TLER, RAFF and other advantages of enterprise-class drives. So you run the risk of more errors, RAID rebuilds and potential failures by choosing a consumer drive like this. But even though the risk is greater, it’s not really worth the extra money to go to 3TB enterprise-class, so I feel this is a good compromise of risk vs. value.

    Seagate 3TB HDD, November 28, 2011

    VERY IMPORTANT: On Windows 7, 64 bit OS, be sure to download the newest version of Intel’s Rapid Storage Technology (Intel RST) drivers from Intel’s site. 10.1 or higher. You need to do this before formatting drives. […] Also if this is a second storage HDD you’ll most likely need to purchase a SATA power cable. Have always had excellent results with seagate drives!

    2TB Very Fast for HD Video Storage & Editing, Quiet, Reliable, Great Auxiliary to Your Primary SSD, April 6, 2012

    This review is from: Seagate ST2000DM001 Barracuda 7200RPM 2 TB SATA 6 GB/s NCQ 64 MB Cache 3.5-Inch Internal Bare Drive (Personal Computers)

    Customer Video Review Length:: 6:15 Mins

    I am extremely happy with the 2TB drive. I avoided the 3TB drive because there are some reports about special modes used beyond 2TB that aren’t as compatible as 2TB. So for me, even though 3TB can be only a little more, I preferred to rest assured with worry free compatibility of 2TB. For a fresh install of Windows, the BIOS (on my Intel DZ68BC motherboard) and Windows 7 64-bit OEM setup disk had no problem detecting, formatting, and using the drive. The drive is very fast being SATA III (6G/s) with a large 64MB cache. Of course it isn’t SSD, but for large files like videos, it has been stellar for me. It is quiet enough that I never hear it unless I listen closely, doesn’t heat up my case (according to the motherboard that monitors the case and reports via software), doesn’t seem to eat up power in how I use it, and very fast. I do a lot of HD video storage, editing, and copying from my HD camcorder and it flies for me.

    Now it isn’t SSD. It still has moving parts, rotating platters, and is affected by seek times. But it superbly suited for storing and accessing large files like HD video, music, etc, that are contiguous blocks on the disk that it can just start reading fast without seeking. I recommend an SSD (like the Intel 510 Series 120 GB SSD that I love even more than this HDD for operating system files and documents. With SSD, the computer boots fast, opens apps very fast (IE, FireFox, & MS WOrd are nearly instant), and opens documents very fast. But 120 GB is limited. So I use this 2TB HDD as a very fast large file storage for video, pictures, music, and archiving stuff. I think this HDD is a great compliment to my SSD.

    The drive is OEM, and it really doesn’t come with anything but the drive itself, no cables, no power adapters, no screws, or software. But you really should have everything you need already. Any Sata cable should do (all should be the same). When purchased from and shipped by Amazon, it seems very well protected. I didn’t have any worries. I wouldn’t worry about the bad Vine review reports about broken drives from shipping which I suspect got shipments from a different facility that didn’t know what they were doing with computer parts. I can attest I purchased from Amazon and am happy with the packaging from Amazon.
