Experience: 3 Years
Quiet, fast, affordable.
Lasted 3 years before developing a few read errors.
It's been heavily used (mostly read accesses), on almost 24/7 for the last 3 years and 2 months. Runs quiet (compared to other drives - can't hear seeks) and is decently fast.
But now it's developing unrecoverable read errors (about a dozen physical disk blocks of 4096 bytes) near the end of the disk. The SMART self test (long or short) exits almost immediately with a read error, likely because it's run out of spare blocks to relocate bad ones to. Here's it's SMART data (view with a fixed width font to see the columns):

Years of good service, still usable as archival backup I think, though now it's time for a new and larger drive...

Experience: 4 Weeks
 Verified Owner
Cheap when on sale
None so far.
I used this as my back up drive, fast transfer.

Experience: 2 Years
In the past 2 years, 2 of the 5 of them have died.
I really was expecting to replace them before 2 years was up, but somehow never did, so considering they lasted as long as they did, good enough. They are quite fast. But of all the HD's out there, they do seem to have a bad reputation. For some odd reason the 4TB of the same model, other than being slower, seem to last way longer.

Experience: 7 Days
works fine

Price, Size.
Have these backing up data in a NAS 7 months so far. Guessing it's great so far.

large 3TB capacity, fairly fast read and write speeds.
so far none are noted.
This is a huge capacity drive for the storage of movies, tv shows etc. the only small hitch was it needs to be formatted for GPT and not MBR which will not make the entire HD usable.

Experience: 30 Days

alot a room for storage
no con
had trouble at first for my pc to show up the drive but with a tweak of setting it pop right up. great buy for the moneys

Capacity to price ratio
Can't use Linux Fdisk to format
I still have to look up the correct way to format a large disk in Linux every time, but that's no shortcoming of the drive - just a testament to my short memory! I threw this drive into my storage server and it's chugging along nicely. It's great to have free space again!

Experience: 2 Days

Fast and quite
You can trust Seagate. They have great service and durability.

Experience: 3 Weeks
lots of hard drive space
hard is too noisy
I've dealt almost exclusively with WD for the last 10 years....I had a string of bad luck with Seagate before that, and had sworn off of them. Well, times have changed, and I'm willing to see if Seagate has improved over the years. Post-flood WD seems to be sticking to the absurd prices after other makers are slowly going back down to reasonable prices. And I have to say price played a BIG part in these recent purchases...I REFUSE to pay more for a WD GREEN drive than I did for a Black drive twice the size a year ago...I just refuse.
In a non-raid environment, this 2TB drive seems to be snappy, worked out of the box, and has had no far so good. Just ordered 2 of the 3TB variety on the strength of this one.

Comment: This high capacity HDD is the performance winner in a 7 HDD roundup.
