I go get one more right now
Its local for me, but I wish I knew better about the problems their current drives are having. Some say firmware fixes it, but others say it doesn't, and there have been a lot of dead seagate drives lately?
I have four Seagate 1.5TB ( INT )three drive use External esata dock and one use internal drive ( start yesterday )I don't have any problem and I love plenty of space
Note: 800GB trnasfer E SATA 300 it takes around 3hour it is fast ? ( I know it is much faster than USB )
Could someone please check what firmware version these drives from microcenter coming with?
Thanks, then what is this SD1A firmware which everyone is looking for? Is this older firmware?
This may be of help:
NO Seagate now.
Hmmmm................has anyone else noticed on newegg's site all of the Seagate drivesstate a 3 year warranty instead of 5 years with the exception of the ES series of drives.I just wonder if the fiasco with the 1.5TB hdds caused Seagate to rethink their 5 year warranty on their hdds or if it is just a mistake on newegg's part. I've already decided if they are cutting down the warranty to 3 years then no more Seagate drives for me I'llgo with WD if they keep their 5 year warranty on the Black Edition drives. :iagree:
I believe Seagate cut OEM warranties back to 3 years a while ago. I believe retail still is 5 years.
The OEM 1TB Seagate I bought something like 2 or 3 months ago from Tigerdirect said it had a5 year warranty on it so guess I better check into it and find out if it has or not. All I can say is if that is true about the OEM drives just having 3 years on them then Seagate has lost my business from now on and I'll go with who ever has the longest warranty and best track record for quality. :iagree:
Hmmm...... something smells fishy here TD is still advertising the OEM as having 5 years on them here is the link. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4131881&CatId=2459
