The drive inside the enclosure is a Seagate ST3000DM001. The bare drive is actually more expensive when purchased by itself

I have felt for a long time that manufacturers install drives that do less well during QC into their external drives. I have no proof of course; I base it on anecdotal evidence that many more friends, relatives, etc. report issues with external drives than ever do with desktop drive, or even laptop drives.

 

I think it would be interesting for other members to post their experiences.

That could be correct ikon, but I have also determined that quite often it is the enclosure hardware that has caused issues. Overheating, controller, etc.

That's a good point joem. I don't have much personal experience with pre-made externals enclosures (I usually create my own) but, like I said, a lot of people I know have issues with them.

 

One other thought: how can manufacturers sell external enclosures cheaper than bare drives if the drives are the same quality?
