So I ordered 3x1TB 7200.11 drives from Newegg. I only now realized that the entire 7200.11 line of drives are defective.
I knew for a fact the 1.5TB drives had problems but that a firmware patch was released recently to fix this supposed problem.
From what I can gather, some people say the firmware update fixed it and others say the problem is still there.
I honestly only thought it was with the 1.5TB drives. I had no idea that the 500GB and the 1TB hard drives were also having problems.
I’m sorely disappointed with Seagate. They were once the cream of the crop around a year or two ago.
Here is a link to their support forum where you can see for yourself that many users are having many problems.
