comment What HDD diagnostic tool to trust?
I've checked the drive just to detect possible problems earlier. It's new drive, so I had not any problem with them.

Thank you. I guessed to check SeaTools error code and it is equal to 6C9AC2A4, which means "Serial number not detected, SeaTools did fail the drive". I've rechecked the serial number on Seagate site and it also is not accepted. Probably because this is a Samsung drive. So you are right, the manufacturer makes sense in that case.

Thank you for your suggestion about SMART. Probably it doesn't matter in my case, because I just guessed to check error code, returned by SeaTools. Its tests fail in the beginning because SeaTools can't validate HDD serial number. Probably because this is Samsung drive, not Seagate. I am now sure that the drive is fine.
