1TB Seagate Barracudas Collapsing A Gogo, Users Say

Illustration for article titled 1TB Seagate Barracudas Collapsing A Gogo, Users Say

It looks like the Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 hard drive series is having serious problems Zune style, with a large number of them failing like crazy, specially the 1TB model. The problem seems to be firmware-based.

The company-which has been deleting messages from customers reporting on the problem left, right, and center-has offered a software fix, but it's saying that people are not entitled to any other kind of compensation or replacement. I smell class-action lawsuit. [The Inquirer via Electronista]

DISCUSSION

I bought *8* Seagate 7200.11 1.5 TB models recently to attach to an Adaptec RAID card. After much huffing, puffing, blowing the house down, and firmware updates, it wound up that 1) Adaptec said they don't support this drive on their cards, and 2) Seagate basically told me, "Don't use these drives in a RAID."

Grrrr....
