Windows 7: Seagate 2TB problem:inaccessible,ask for initialize,incorrect capacity

13 Jul 2016   #11

Windows 7 x64

Try to go for WD Black as 1st choice, WD Blue as 2nd choice.
Samsung are also better now in HDD.
Seagate is dropping in quality.

Don't go for Toshiba, as it may not be done by Toshiba manufacturer.
That is i had some failed Toshiba HDD(s).
As my brother Toshiba laptop failed, i went to Toshiba Service center.
Upon asking about Toshiba external /internal HDD(s) the Service staff said they don't just sell HDD.
Most of their Toshiba HDD are for OEM, such as Toshiba laptop.

As for HDD size, if it is for backup, do consider 5" desktop type, as more reliable than 3.5"

As quote from jumanji

As Miller stated it is a formidable task to locate an identical in all respects PCB for the HDD with the same Part number,Revision number etc.. That is why I added the word "truly" to prefix the Professional Data Service. (If you had purchased two identical drives at the same time from the same vendor, there are greater chances that both PCBs are from the same batch and identical in all respects.)
This is true, as being in-charge of Warranty.
