The 1TB Barracuda 7200.14 boasts impressive peak sequential read/write Lab speeds of 195/193 MB/s. These best case burst speeds indicate what the Barracuda is capable of under Lab perfect test conditions. Our real world benchmarks have been sourced from hundreds of users and give a better sense of how well this drive actually performs on a day to day basis. The 1TB 7200.14 has an average UBM sequential read/write speed of 147 MB/s, which is a superb result, especially for a budget drive. With 4K random read/write speeds of 0.77/1.53 MB/s small file performance is also respectable making the 1TB Barracuda a very good all round performer. In terms of value for money the relatively small 1TB drive is not as good value as its larger 3TB sibling but in the 1 TB category this is one of the best value for money drives available. [Jan '14 HDrivePro]

http://hdd.userbenchmark.com/Seagate-Barracuda-720014-1TB/Rating/1849 As a 30 year computer tech, I have never seen as many failed Seagate drives. I will never use Seagate drives in any critical systems. They are for those who backup daily.

Just bought a new fresh ST1000DM003 and there was a failure(bad sector). Took a replacement and hoping it'll last long. My last 1TB have 360 days+ PowerOn and still working fine.

Came as the system drive in my old HP Pavilion in 2011, now relegated to bulk storage on my Ryzen build. Been used almost continually since then with regular backups to make sure no data loss occurs. However, this ancient drive shows no sign of failure (touch wood) and just keeps on ticking! Obviously long since superseded but as far as drives go mine has been excellent.

Don't have other HDDs to compare with this one at the moment, but it's good for the price and has good speeds for what it is.
