5Great Price/performance ratio make this a great buy. For me consistently faster than FireCuda.
By fraamus
I ended up purchasing this drive after I received a defective and then poor performing replacement Firecuda 2TB. I was prepared to be disappointed after replacing my Caviar Black. I have to say while it is about 20 Mbps slower than the Caviar it is still very fast and very quiet, especially compared to the noisy WD drive. The 4K perfomance is pretty dismal, but in real world use I just don't see much difference. I am a gamer and use my PC as a small office server. So it is very fast with a Samsung EVO 850 primary drive, OCed 3570K, GTX 1060, Crucial Ballistex memory etc. The Caviar is clearly the best mechanical drive out there but at twice the price per MB I'm not sure it is worth the price. I guess the proof will be in the durablity and the drive does get warm with long and large data transfers.

3For those who complain about NOISY Barracuda PRO Drives
By J. D. Rodriguez
I looked online and even reviewed Seagate's responses to other people to no avail, so I decide to look for a workaround myself.

To Solve in Windows 10:

Go to Device Manager.
Then Disk Drives.
Right click on your noisy drive.
Under Removal Tab, is Removal Policy.
If Better Performance is selected, switching to Quick Removal shuts the damn thing up.

Since this is my backup drive, I do not care about the default option.

It would be nice if the noise was fixed with Better Performance selected, but my guess is that having a 6TB and an extra disk platter inside the same 3.5in casing makes a recipe for design issues. Add to that, Seagates's proprietary Multi Tier Caching Technology and you get a slight heartbeat from the drive that kicks a little every 1.5-2 seconds which you can clearly hear and feel when you touch it. Also, I have not updated the firmware and don't know if that even solves the issue, but I am happy with my workaround.

5Does it's job for me..
By Jerry M.
Very nice and quiet, of course ton's of storage. Use 4 of these in a QNAP in RAID 10. Does it's job for me. I don't spend too much time benchmarking this stuff and for my small offices you can't tell the difference in speeds between this and the other brand with the same spec.
