    Rated 1 out of 5 by from I should have listened!!!!!!!!!!!!! I know the guys at B and H use this stuff and know about it, but in this case I didn't listen and just focused on the price. The guy that helped me on this order told me these drives were junk and I should get a different brand. How I wish I has just said oh ok and paid the extra 100 for a better drive. Seagate is the worst. First the drive didn't even pretend to work. It never mounted and never showed in the utility. It was a dud from the start. So knowing the return policy I had to deal with Seagate to see if I could get money back or a replacement. They are putting me through the ringer. I can't put it in my Drobo or my internal drive dock I must put it in the Data port of a computer and send them a screen shot of the system dialog to prove its a piece of junk. So now I have to dig out my old Mac Pro Tower and set that up just to make sure I can get my money or a new drive. Frankly I don't want a new drive I just want the 300 they stole and I say stole because they know these drives are worthless but sold it to me because they could hopefully tire me out with the return process. Next time I'm just going to follow the advice of the B and H people.
