Seagate 7200.11 1.5TB Hard Drives

15 10 2009

Seagate’s last generation of hard drives (7200.11) had problems.  The original reports indicated that the drives performed poorly in a RAID array.  Seagate compounded the problem by issuing a firmware fix that sometimes “bricked” the hard drive.  Ouch!!

Does your hard drive have a hidden problem?  Find out by reading the details on Seagate’s website and running the Drive Detect software.  The software will report on your drive’s current firmware.  Here’s the long and short of it:

P/N 9JU138-300 and 9NU138-336 w/ F/W SD15..19 –
  upgrade to SD1B necessary.

F/W SD15..19 – upgrade to SD1B, ok, but not necessary.
F/W SD1B or SD2B – no upgrade necessary.
F/W CCxx – no upgrade necessary – in fact can “brick” your hdd.

Seagate gives firm warnings – BACK UP YOUR DATA FIRST.

Silver Lining.  If there is a “silver lining” to this whole fiasco, it’s this – the 1.5TB drives are pretty cheap now.  When introduced about a year ago, theses drives sold for $180.  Now they’re as low as $110.  The 7200.11 1TB drives are only about $10 less!  Wow!!!  What a bargain!!!
