Yikes!

Strengths of the product

Initial price per GB

Weaknesses of the product

Ultimate price you pay (total loss of all your data)

Additional Comments

These units have extremely poor quality NAND and cache controllers. NAND failures on all within weeks of purchase and when they go they take the entire 1TB physical disk offline with them by either slowly writing corrupted data over all your files or just corrupting the entire volume structure rendering your data unreadable.

Official Reply from Memory Express:

Tim we appreciate the time you took to review your Seagate 2TB HDD. However, we feel that "NAND failures on all within weeks of purchase" is an untrue statement for the 700+ of these 2TB drives we have sold to customers since their arrival.

This is the 5th review for this 2TB drive on our site. Each review does talk about drive failure, and that looks bad at first, but knowing we have sold over 700 of these drives. This works out to a 1 or 2% failure rate which is low for any Hard Drive from any Manufacturer.

It would be a different issue if this was the 5th bad review on a slow moving item like a $2,000 Gaming Monitor and we had only sold 10 of them...

In your case, if your drive failed within "weeks of purchase", please take it back to your local MemX Store in Winnipeg, for our traditional 30 Day DOA Return. If you purchased IPR with that drive, the process is even easier; for the lifetime of your IPR coverage...

2 of 2 dead after very little use. seems a common problem, steer clear of these POS drives!

Short lifespan and no significant benefits

Strengths of the product

The price

Weaknesses of the product

Died within 8 months after purchase. I was using it in my PS4 Pro after switching from a Samsung Spinpoint (which still works). There was no significant speed boosts in load times during games and the PS4's UI on the homescreen became more sluggish after switching to this drive. The drive also seemed to go into a resting state every few minutes, which slowed the console down even more.

Additional Comments

I would not recommend the Firecuda at all due to its short lifespan and lackluster performance. Either go with a regular HDD or spend a bit more on an actual SSD (which is what I ended up doing).

bad quality and low reliability of this device

Strengths of the product

good price for SSHD drive fast speed, like, for hard drives

Weaknesses of the product

usually, stop working after 3-4 month. in my case from 10 drives - 3 stopped working in 4 months. Some time problem with Hybrid on this hard drive. some files can disappear suddenly.

Additional Comments

recommend use only like OS system hard drive for the fast boot operation Do not save critical data on Seagate!

All performance, no reliability

Strengths of the product

Very fast boot times, similar to SSD in my use Low cost for capacity and performance large capacity low height allows installation in most products. quiet low power consumption

Weaknesses of the product

poor longevity infant failures

Additional Comments

There's really nothing quite like having capacity AND speed all in one! If it were better made, this would be a fantastic product. If it were reliable it would be worth twice the price. Unfortunately, as it is, I've had THREE out of THREE of these drives FAIL very quickly. All purchased summer of 2017. 2 drives failed within the first day of use! 1 lasted a few months before starting to malfunction. It would buzz and click for 5 to 10 seconds or more before accessing. I can't recommend it
