Strengths of the product

Good while it lasted, Price was ok.

Weaknesses of the product

Stopped working after a year of minimal use.

Additional Comments

I have never had issues with a HDD for any pc's or any gaming consoles. Decided I was going to get a samsung ssd drive but on the recommendation of the sales agent he advised this was the better value, at the time $119.99 for a 2TB was a good deal, vs $219 for 1TB of SSD. After a year of it being in the PS4 Pro, it did not spin anymore. I had 4 games installed on the drive, and it was minimally used so it was a huge surprise to me. I will say though the client center rep working the warranty line was awesome. It's too bad now that I have to wait 7-10 business days to have the drive replaced.

great value as a storage drive since it's better than most 5400rpm drives

Strengths of the product

- Great price per TB ratio for a HDD (the only drives have lower price per TB ratio are the seagate 2.5" 5400rpm external drives, which are slower) - 7200 rpm with 256mb cache offers a decent speed for you to store some movies and games

Weaknesses of the product

- As the others said, since it's a mechanical HDD the DOA failure rate is higher than similar SSDs, so do run some write/read tests after the purchase

Additional Comments

Storage drive that offers a very good value, but do run some read/write tests after the purchase

Ran in the system for a grand total of 4 hours before completely bricking.

It's almost 2020 and Seagate apparently still can't make a reliable HDD.

Weaknesses of the product

Not working

Additional Comments

Random read write issues. File transfers will randomly slow to a crawl. 1.25KB/S 9 hours to transfer a 10 KB word file. Performed Diagnostics using manufacturer Seatools application, no problems detected. Contacted Seagate and since there are no problems detected they will not help me.
