Amazon price matched but...
Seagate 3 TB Barracuda 3.5" Internal Hard Drive (7200rpm) and 1 Year Limited Warranty

The reply I got from Seagate was as follows: "Thank you for contacting Seagate Support. Seagate recently began a warranty reduction program. In order to determine the drive warranty, the serial number must be available for the product. ...".

"warranty reduction program"? That doesn't sound good...

I'm in anyway (already have one of these, running fine for a few weeks at least...)

Help....need advice. This deal seems like a great one. I've been looking for a more energy savings for a HTPC that I'm building. I was leaning towards a WD green 5400rpm for storage. Is there any advantage to wait for a 5400rpm "green" drive or should I go for this deal?
Very tempted to go for this with warranty extension.
Thanks in advance for input


Been waiting for a deal this good on a 2 yr+ warranty 2 TB drive, wasn't expecting one on a 3TB drive

In for one, thanks!

That is combining all reviews for all hard drive's listed on that page. Are they the same models? Most likely. But all those 83 1 Star reviews aren't for the 3TB version, be it as they most likely are still relevant.

1 star = DOA's most likely

caused by poor handling/shipping most likely

5400 rpm drives save you energy, you use can use them for HTPC as your data drive
less noice, less heat. Though finding them at this price is rare.
But then this drive has real bad reviews.
This is 7200 rpm drive. Warranty does not cover your data, for many of us its the data that matters
and not the drive.

Yes, it's very hard to not spring for this deal, thanks for the input

What will we ever do without our porn?!

some of us have customer data, there memories of lifetime.
Birthdays and weddings moments which cannot be reproduced.
Porn stack can be rebuild in hours and at a price cheaper
than the price of this hard disk.

Thanks for the deal OP! I'm running 4 of these in a RAID5 with a hotspare as well, and zero hiccups. Of course, I also run backups on the most critical data, which everyone should do regardless of drive manufacturer.

in for 1, at this price i will willing to test my luck... Still waiting for similar deal on WD brand! (please Newegg )

Thanks OP! Ordered 2 for my Black Armor 220 NAS upgrade!

In for 3, thanks OP. I use these in RAID mirror config, so np if one fails

OP should change statement in original post to:
PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM ANY MECHANICAL DRIVE IF YOU PLAN TO STORE ANYTHING CRITICAL ON IT, reviews/real time usage statics of these are horrible.

Edit: Sort 3TB+ harddrives on Newegg by "best rated" and this one is second after a 1-reviewed 4tb WD black hard drive (statistically insignificant).

While these data points are not *really* conclusive, they are the best thing we have to go off of at this point.

bought 1. Thanks OP

In for 2. Will see about reliability. Buyers with bum drives naturally comment much more often. As I do.

Are you serious, I have been through 2 SSD's out of 4 so their MTBF is well overrated as well. Here is what is important - keep your data backed up in another location always for it's security.

100% agree. While you are much more likely to experience data loss due to hard drive failure, RAID and other localized options will not protect you from Fire/Flood/Theft. Always, Always, Always have an offsite copy of your most critical data.

sold out

Very odd that its also discontinued and not just OOS. Maybe there were the last of the 3tb drives with a 2 year warranty that Newegg had?

Pretty ridiculous to claim SSD has advantage over hard drives on reliability. SSDs are still playing catchup on longevity. Too bad there aren't many studies showing just how bad they still are, but you'll be hard pressed to find any good studies or surveys showing even parity between the two types of storage.

Im lucky I got one. But when I look into my account I have a warranty extension to 3 years for $8.99.
Should I get it? Is it worth it? And how long will I be able to get the extension?

Login to Newegg with your account to view them. I just bought 2 of them. Deal is not expired.

Man I never understand the fire people have over different HD brands, Seagate recently, before WD, and before that Maxtor. HDs fail.. its a fact no matter what the brand, no matter what the size, and no matter if it has moving parts or not. The more read/writes are done, the quicker it will fail.

Think of it like a tire, the more you drive the more chance you have of blowing a flat. But... you can run over a nail driving out of the tire store. Always have a spare!

RAID arrays were meant for this, anything that is important to you should be replicated either with a backup process or redundancy via a RAID. Preferably both. You can make a Basic RAID mirroring on 2 disks so that everything that is on one is mirrored to the other.

Of course I would suggest backing up offsite as well just in case as mentioned above. I personally do a monthly backup of my important stuff (home vids, pic, memories) once a month. I dont take it offsite, but I have it if I ever need to leave due to weather emergency (flood or impending hurricane) so I can just grab it and go, or in the case of both "tires" blow at once (though not likely)


I personally have 2x 1.5 TB Seagate drives that have worked great for the last 4 years. I have also used WD, Maxtor, Hitachi, Toshiba, and Samsung drives between laptops, desktops, external drives, ps3's, and never had a single one fail. The only way they were retired were for upgrades like putting a TB drive to replace the 60GB in my PS3
