"Total crap!"on by MisTikkal
Pros none - there are NO pros
Cons got a toilet roll ... that's the length of the list
Summary NEVER NEVER NEVER BUY SEAGATE
This was a gift for my birthday, my poor daughter got stung!!!!
Pros I have two tB drives, plugged them into my USB ports and they have been working error free for months and months. Fast enough for me to use them to play movies from them directly to my TV and very fast when copying large files from one to the other.
Cons I don't dislike anything about this product. It does what it is supposed to.
Summary Multiple input connections. Error free. Not one problem in over a year.
Pros None !!!!!!
Cons Think it is overheating.
Summary I have replaced this product twice under warranty. The first two failed completely, the one I am using now keeps disappearing and I need to power cycle before using. Can't rely on it for back-ups. Very dissatisfied.
"Good AND Bad"on by Niemand420
Pros Size, Cost, Multiple Interfaces, Teaches importance of BACKUP!
Cons 1 in 3 suffer from COMPLETE self-destruction.
Summary I liked seagate. I bought 3 of these. 1 suffered complete and utter self-destruction just after filling to the halfway point! Luckily, because of my problems with WD's MyBooks I have a pretty thorough backup regime.
Seagate has a very easy and fast exchange policy (I guess these fail at such a rate that an automated exchange policy is warranted) which is nice... BUT the replacement drive came DOA!! Luckily, their exchange the exchanged drive program works well also....
Bottom line.... The drive works great when it works.... And falls hard when it fails.....
Think of that line from Clint.....
Do you feel lucky?
Pros Easy to set up
Cons unrepairable errors in less than 2 months
Summary Easily installed for synchronized backup of another 1TB drive. After 6 weeks of operation, began making ticking noises, failed Seagate Manager tests, froze during CHKDSK repairs, and finally failed to be recognized at all. Returned for replacement. New drive tested weekly, and failed Seagate Manager tests after 6 weeks. Also failed CHKDSK repair. To be replaced under warranty again. Thanks to synchronized backup set-up, I can afford to lose 1 drive for a short time, but this is proving to be an unreliable hard drive.
