Overheats Bought this to replace the WD My Book 4TB which is full. One obvious issue is that the temperature kept rising with continuous access and I had to disconnect it at 55C (room at 22C), just 1C away from tripping the “BE Airflow Temperature”. The Seagate specification states it worked up to 60C but I didn’t push it because heat kills hard drives based on my experience.

Bought 2 new drives in March 2015, both have seriously and strangely malfunctioned. [UPDATED Jan 21, 2016]

This replaced another Seagate hard drive that crashed, now 3 months later, of light use, it is dead! I purchased this drive to replace another Seagate external hard drive that crashed. Luckily, with this one, I backed up all information onto another drive. However now I am left with yet another brick and this time it only lasted 3 months of very light use. I wish I did not have to live in fear of losing all of my files. Having to purchase multiple backups is getting very expensive. This company needs to build a more reliable product. Hopefully they will honor their limited warranty, but again another hassle to go through. I just want a working hard drive.
