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.
