1 out of 5 eggsConnector broke

Pros: 250 GB of space. Only one cable to lose track of instead of 2 like others.

Cons: The usb connector inside the case broke off and is now rattling around. As this of course has data on it, I have to break open the case and fix it voiding the warranty. So much for the great seagate warranty.

1 out of 5 eggsDisappointed

Pros: Easy install. Fast. Quiet.

Cons: Must have gotten a lemon. Can't return under warranty because it contains financial data. can't access the drive to erase, re-format, or run diagnostics.

Other Thoughts: Already dead, though very light use. Never dropped, always stationary on my desktop. In middle of copying files received error message "cannot copy file **** to ISO device" something about RAW file though I have no files in RAW. When I explore device, shows capacity as "0". No files or folders show up.

5 out of 5 eggsMusic Files

Pros: EZ to use, small and light, handy software, price.

Cons: two usb ports..could be an issue with some laptops.

Other Thoughts: price was great when I bought it. Using it to store music files only, and getting over 21k files with 160GB space left. The software available for the drive is optional but appears to be useful especially for users who work on more than one system(windows). It allows you to literally take what you're used to along to any pc you work on. If music library continues to grow, will consider getting another one.

5 out of 5 eggsThis was a really good deal

Pros: Hi,

I would like to tell that I recently purchased this external disk and I am now happy that I did. Its good, I mean the capacity, the price and the state of art design. One thing I liked about it in particular that it doesn't get hot as I use to put it on work for like 3 days at a stretch or so. Also, the speed is great. (I could actually play high end games that are stored on the disk from the disk itself).

Cons: The only thing I am wary about is tht I have not tried it with a 64 bit OS and someone wrote in the review tht the speed is bad when we use this disk on it. I would like to test that but for now, it is great to have this disk.

Other Thoughts: I would also like to find out if I could install an operating system on this hard disk.

5 out of 5 eggsNo complaints

Pros: Large space, looks nice, not too hot, not noisy. It's reasonably priced.

Cons: No real complaints, does take up 2 USBs to power it. Comes with some odd software.

Other Thoughts: I have mine in a case to prevent accidents. Worthwhile investment.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I just plugged in the drive an it was ready to go. Very fast & large drive. I use the drive with my Dell Insprion laptop works great.

Cons: Nice looking case and small. It has two USB connectors one for power so you don't have to carry a power cord around with you.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: This HDD is awesome! (So far) It comes with its own 'Start Menu'! It is the coolest thing ive seen out of something so small. It has alot of harddrive space being its size. It is very, very light! Im going to get another one later.

Cons: It takes up two USB ports. Kind of a pain.

Other Thoughts: Awesome, small, light weight, decent capacity.

3 out of 5 eggsWorking fine so far, had a bad USB cable

Pros: File transfers are fast. Small, light-weight and compact (can easily store in your pocket). USB bus-powered, no external power supply needed.

Cons: When I first powered on drive using 2-headed cable that was supplied, Windows XP could not recognize drive being plugged in and it was also making a small clicking/skipping sound, kind of like a broken record being played over and over again. Discovered that the cable that came with drive was faulty (proved this by using another extra mini-usb cable I had on hand) and drive was immediately recognized by Windows XP and skipping sound also instantaneously went away. On that same cable, tried plugging/switching both ends of USB standard-a sides, still no avail.

Other Thoughts: To the person that wrote this review before I did, did you try replacing your USB cable. I suspect faulty rewiring in the cable provided as your symptoms closely relate to mine. Remember, this drive and USB cable assembly was made in CHINA, of all places. I hope my drive doesn't meet the same fate as yours, since I've only owned it for a day.
