    The Worst Drive Ever

    By Puru

    from Jackson Hts

    Pros

    • works

    Cons

    • Cries Every Other Minutes
    • Makes Cricking Sound
    • Never buy
    • The Sound Is Erritating

    Best Uses

      I purchased LaCie 6TB Thunderbolt drive but I returned because the drive makes horrible cricking kind of noise. Them I purchased 3TB drive for my iMac Mid 2011. Same here that it keeps making cracking sound all day and night long after a few minutes interval. This is normal to all Seagate drive which drives me crazy. It must be there severe engineering flaw which they are not at situation to recall. I bought western digital green drives and I'm happy. I never gonna buy seagate drive unless they correct the noise factor. Seems like the drive cries for some reason.

      3TB Seagate internal drive

      By crazytalk

      from los angeles, ca

      Verified Buyer

      The site listed this drive as being compatible with a mac mini. Obvious when it arrived that it's way too big. Oh well, now I need an enclosure.
