"Sadly Dissapointed~Flex Go 1.5 Terrabyte"2.0 starson by mlj1111
Pros: I guess the multiple connectors would be counted as a pro. 1.5 terrabyte.
Cons: What happened to 5 yr warrantys! Bad descision on someones part at Seagate Corporate. This was always a easy sale to my customers when I used to be able to say 5 yr warranty, now I have to talk them out of Western Digitals that sell cheaper. Way slow tra
Summary: I, as a computer guru, find myself consistently backing up all of my customers data. As bigger drives come out, I buy them.
I was very happy with the 1 terrabyte Freeagent Go that I have and would would give that 10 stars if the rateing went that high, but this new drive really leaves alot to be desired. It really is slow as far as transfer rates on usb 2.0 ports, and when I say slow I mean it.
Not enough people have computers that even utilize usb 3.0 ports yet to begin with, so I really think this issue needs to be addressed, as the bulk of the people that do purchase this product, will more then likely have 2.0 ports on thier computers. I have always been a big supporter of Seagate, but this time I think that they have overhyped this product.
