2 out of 5 eggsBad Sectors after four years...

Pros: Cheap for when I bought this drive in 2009.

Cons: My first external hard drive to go click, click, click... and have tons of bad sectors when tested. I was using this as a backup of an older drive, but it failed before that one did!

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Cheap, hasn't died yet

Cons: Slowest drive I own

Other Thoughts: I used it externally for years for backups. I decided to use it as an internal drive. The speed boost was noticeable, but not fantastic. It's just for storage

5 out of 5 eggsGreat hard drive

Pros: Works as advertised. It has lasted me for about 2 years now and is still going strong.

Cons: None really. My only complaint is no on/off switch, but not a big issue.

Other Thoughts: After two years of using it as an external drive, I pried the case open and put it in my computer to use as an internal.

5 out of 5 eggsSEAGATE EXPANSION 2TB

Pros: I would say this was one of the easiest expansion that I have done and just a plug play. You just read and click love that. I have this running the movies, (net work), for the whole house; and @ times there are four movies being watched at one time and it does this with ease.

Cons: so far I do not have any

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Lots of storage space,quiet and its fast.

Cons: Only problem i had was losing the power cord. Do any of you know what type of power cord to use for it? I've goon though around 11 different adapters and couldn't find any that wanted to work with it. I also had trouble find the right power supply amount (volts, amps). Any one know of any info that might help me out?

1 out of 5 eggsI would NOT recommend this drive

Pros: Lots of storage space

Cons: This drive has crashed on me twice. I bought one last January and it crashed within a year. Then through a lot of hassle, I got a "new" drive sent to me and it crashed too. I do not take it anywhere, It sits in one location.

5 out of 5 eggsDrive seems Great

Pros: Fast Cheap Drive :)
Bought at Target Locally for $69.00

What I found inside was a Seagate SATA 6.0 7200 RPM 64MB Cache Hard disk model st2000dm001

I nice Fast Hard Disk.. Tossed the case and cables in the trash :P

Cons: ALL the reviews I read led me to believe the power and USB cable were the bulk of the issues

Other Thoughts: Salvage your drives and toss the shell ;)

1 out of 5 eggsWorked Once

Pros: none

Cons: Worked when first plugged in and was able to move my media collection over. Was never able to get the drive to work again. Once booted up the dive will be listed as connected in device manager; however, not shown in drive management, prevents drive management from running, can not be seen by SeaTools diagnostic - hangs diagnostic when connected, and can not boot up any machine with drive connected.
