"Worked well for 3 months"1.5 starson by sanggol09
Pros: Quiet; slim; excellent price, given the storage capacity of the drive.
Cons: This drive crashed after only three months of minimal use.
Summary: This drive was seldom used, never dropped and rarely moved, nevertheless after three months of use, the drive abruptly stopped worked. Seagate could offer little assistance and had no explanation for this error. My product is still under warranty so they will replace the drive, however, I must pay for data recovery. Seagate?s response, ?next time, backup your data.?
I have seen numerous accounts on the internet account detailing this type of crash, however, Seagate will not acknowledge this problem. I cannot recommend this product.
Note: Seagate refers users to i365 for data recovery. Expect to pay at least $1200 for this service. If your product is under warranty and you would like to make use of another licensed data recovery service, you must provide written proof that the drive case was opened for this purpose in order to receive a replacement product from Seagate.
