"Good machine, ruined by software"2.0 starson by CliveT
Pros: Fast, quiet, compact, feels well built.
Cons: Only the software, IMO the Memeo software is a disaster
Summary: I like this drive, but for the provided back-up software caused so much pain that that I had to give it a low rating. It trashed my new $2,000 Vaio and I had to rebuild the SSD from back-up disks. For some silly reason, I tried to install Memeo on my new "best component" desktop, (Seagate Momentus XT drive) same problem, but at least I was able to restore from four restores back. This was a real shame, because in my experience Seagate software has always worked so sweetly in the past.
The USB 3 accessory is cool, although I am not convinced it is much faster, perhaps the higher transfer speed exceeds the read/write capability of the drive.
