1 out of 5 eggsWas so excited to get a 2 TB..

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB Portable External Hard Drive with 200GB of Cloud Storage & Mobile Device Backup USB 3.0 - STDR2000101 (Silver)

Pros: Works
stores amount listed on package...

Cons: I WAS SENT A 1 TB AFTER I ORDERED A 2 TB.

Other Thoughts: Always thought I picked the wrong selection until I just saw it again in my ordered items category. I thought it was an awesome deal 2 TB for 89.99, then I received a 1 TB and then I was like... oh it's not a deal at all. Awesome... it's a wonderful feeling when you realized that you have been ripped off.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little drive

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB Portable External Hard Drive with 200GB of Cloud Storage & Mobile Device Backup USB 3.0 - STDR2000101 (Silver)

Pros: I bought two of these over the Holidays, installed one, and have never had any problems. Drive works great, is slim, small footprint, lightweight, and just works. What an inexpensive backup solution, so I bought two. I have had none of the disconnect issues mentioned in another review. If you're getting disconnects I don't think it's the fault of the drive -- look to your USB driver, cable, or other issue.

Cons: No cons I can think of except you do have to install a driver, the system may not natively pick up the drive. To me, that's a pretty small issue.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little drive

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB Portable External Hard Drive with 200GB of Cloud Storage & Mobile Device Backup USB 3.0 - STDR2000101 (Silver)

Pros: Fast, quiet, slim. Fits easily in laptop case, or shirt pocket for that matter. I have 4 of these and never had a disconnect. Maybe other reviewers have a different setup than mine. Did the drive disconnect from the computer, or did the computer disconnect from the drive? Hmmm...

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: Make that 5. I'm about to buy another one!

2 out of 5 eggsDisconnect Issues

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB Portable External Hard Drive with 200GB of Cloud Storage & Mobile Device Backup USB 3.0 - STDR2000101 (Silver)

Pros: Small and light. Silver "brushed-metal" variant matches pretty closely with aluminum Mac and accessories. I purchased this to replace an external that took close to an hour for each Time Machine backup; with this drive backups happen so quickly that I don't ever see the computer performing them, even though my computer only supports USB 2.

Cons: The drive disconnects itself. Unlike other reviewers, I've never had the drive disconnect while the computer was in use - it only seems to occur when the computer is suspended ("sleeping"). Even then, it isn't consistent. Sometimes I can go a week without a disconnect, other times it seems to happen daily. I've tried plugging the drive to a powered USB hub and directly to my computer, but it doesn't make a difference. I've been using the drive for 4-5 months now and this issue has not changed during that time.

Other Thoughts: I purchased the drive at a phenomenal sale price. I'll try to work with Seagate's warranty program to see if perhaps my drive or its cable came from a faulty batch. The drive could probably work nicely as a portable drive that isn't always connected to the computer. For my purposes the disconnects are unsatisfactory. In light of others having similar or worse experiences with disconnections, I'd avoid purchasing this drive unless there are many positive reviews that come afterwards, which would indicate that it was likely a batch issue.

1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB Portable External Hard Drive with 200GB of Cloud Storage & Mobile Device Backup USB 3.0 - STDR2000101 (Silver)

Pros: Compact design.

Cons: Died after only 5 months

Other Thoughts: Felt it necessary to write another 1-star review after seeing 2 (somewhat suspicious reviews) shortly after my first one. Buyer beware, say away from Seagate drives.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat backup solution!

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB Portable External Hard Drive with 200GB of Cloud Storage & Mobile Device Backup USB 3.0 - STDR2000101 (Silver)

Pros: Small, fast, USB3.0 speed, silent, powered via USB so no separate cable nor supply

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Backups only happen if they're fast and easy. This drive makes that happen. Spend the money, it's a cheap insurance policy against the agony of a failed hard drive. I bought a second one (different color to keep track easier) and rotate them for additional security.
