I just want to share my experience with the 5TB Seagate Barracuda ST5000LM000 2.5″ Internal Hard Drive.
I am not going to share my own thoughts about this drive her in public.
Instead I will leave it up to you! to do your own judgement.
Back in February 2019 I bought 10 of these drives for stationary use.
After 2 to 3 months, two of these failed totally.
Then in May, I bought one more from a different supplier. Well, this last one lasted for one and a half month.
To summarize; three out of eleven drives failed within three months of use.
I have never seen anything like it before.
UPDATE 2019.09.07. One more drive failed this morning. But at least this one lasted about six months.
