Excellent HDD's for data storage or large file access. Running 3 in small server for some time, good response, no bad sectors or data loss.

Wasn't sure how well this would work as I've come across some dodgy Seagate drives before, but this time no issues at all. The only problem I do have is that 2TB seems to fill up so fats but that's not Seagate's fault

Yes I can also give this drive the thumbs up! Runs smooth & fast. The real sweet spot price for capacity.
Charl, South Africa. 11 March 2014
I love this drive. Works very well no problems. I'm thinking of buying another one.

Impressed so far. Running this in my FreeNAS HP microserver in a zraid mirror configuration. It's performing very well for the price, and speeds are very decent.

I have only used the hard drive for a few days but it seems like a very good choice. Very quiet. Store all my photos, music and videos on it as data drive. Quick access by Lightroom and Photoshop. Can't go wrong if you buy it.

I'm not in a position to compare this to other drive manufacturers, but this is my second 2tb DM001 and I've had absolutely no issues with either of them. I don't use them much for random access data, but considering they are low powered drives, I've been very impressed with the speeds each time I've transferred large chunks of data to and from them.
Martin, South Africa. 11 December 2015
Great drive. 190MB/sec sustained write speed at 0-30% capacity.
My drives now have over 9000 hours of operation and not a single issue.
They run cool and quiet compared to the flaky Seagate 7200.11 and 7200.12 generation drives before them.

Solid drive, performance is good.

I got mine at the great price of R699 a few years ago. True it fills up fast but great speeds and no problems to date. Wish i had got 2 back then, well still worth the money.

Awesome drive. Had it for nearly two years and it's still chugging along as it did when I got it. Thanks Takealot and Seagate.

Hard drive failed within 6 months
Greg, South Africa. 9 May 2014
Great value for money
This drive is very quiet - perfect for my setup. I have an HP microserver in the top of my bedroom cupboard and this green drive has replaced all my existing noisy drives in there.
Now I no longer hear the drive working at night while in bed.

Great value for money! Seagate remains my go-to brand for hard drives. They do what they're supposed to and they last.
Gerald, South Africa. 14 July 2016
Bought it for my DVR, delivered within 24 hrs, works perfectly !
Kurt, South Africa. 1 October 2015
Bought one yesterday, but it was faulty. Drive was very noisy at start up and started making clicking noises when I tried to transfer data to it. After about 5 minutes , It just stopped responding. :(
IvÃ© always used seagate but this drived has failed me :(
Waiting for the faulty one to be collected and replaced. Lets hope the replacement wont do the same.
Pierre, South Africa. 16 May 2016
Works great, using several of them extensively.
