1 out of 5 eggsFails all SMART Tests in Less Than a Year

Pros: Purchased 2, No Issues with One
Second Worked Fine Until Failure 5 Months After Purchase

Cons: Randomly started to stall on reads and writes 5 months after purchase; now fails all SMART tests abruptly. RMA to Seagate under warranty will likely cost more in time and money to ship the thing back than it is worth. Pulled drive out of case (voiding warranty) for data recovery after failure, was able to recover about 80% of the drive.

Other Thoughts: Keep backups of your whatever you store on these drives!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive

Pros: Plugged it in a year ago and have had no issues. I do not use the Seagate software but perform backups with ViceVersa. It works well and is also extremely fast.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I will need a 6 TB one soon....

3 out of 5 eggsVertical Externals suck

Pros: Ran fast

Cons: one fall and it's all over.

Other Thoughts: Ran this as my primary media drive (Music, Pictures, Videos) since I bought it here last april, well last month my Father in Law and his sons where working on an add-on to my house while I was at work, when I came home the drive was on it's side. I reconnected everything and plugged it in and it recognized and behaved about all of about an hour before things started going wonky, I listened to it and got the click of death. Windows still recognizes it and sees the data, but any attempt to access or move it results in lockups.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Drive

Pros: This drive is surprisingly quite compared to my 2 fantom drives. I was skeptical about this drive, but it seems to be pulling about 114 Mb/s write and read. I would definitely buy another.

Cons: I haven't seen any cons with this drive in about a year.

Other Thoughts: Good Drive.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Storage Drive

Pros: I have owned this drive since the first of the year and it has performed excellent. Write speeds are fast at 80-110mb/s on usb 3. The included dashboard software is great for managing the drives power state so they aren't spinning constantly. I hope this prolongs their useful life.

Cons: None so far.

5 out of 5 eggsI love these things.

Pros: Dependable, fast and lot of disk space. The Seagate dashboard is the easiest backup program I've ever used. Set it and forget it. I used it for my work laptop and was able to recover all my data when the brand new work laptop have drive crapped out on me.

Cons: Not free. Would love to see a 10 TB for this price.
