5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive

Pros: It's very light, and portable. I bought 2 at WMrt for $50 a few years ago. I gave one to my mom. Both are still fully functional to this day. I used mine for school mostly, but sometimes as a backup drive or to load iso's (one of my computers doesn't have a CDROM)

Cons: It's only 500gb. I mean that's good for a portable drive, but if you have a lot of media/videos, this drive can fill up FAST.

Other Thoughts: You may want a larger drive, I see 1TB's on sale for around $50 all the time. But otherwise it's good to use as a VERY large flashdrive.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: this is very good drive. had a big sale on them in my home town i got couple of them. had to tear one a apart for the HDD to put in a laptop. the drive still works great in the laptop. they work really well going down the road for music or movies for the kids.

Cons: the plug on one of them broke off from the usb drive but the drive is still good and it is in the desktop for a back up. does need a lot longer cable.

5 out of 5 eggsSeagate 500gb external drive

Pros: Portable
Easily installed and ready to use
Goes with black computer tower, heh
no RMA like many other drives i've purchased, going on the 7th month now.

Cons: Short adapter/plug in
- no cola holder (1/5)

Other Thoughts: I use this drive as my secondary drive, with my main drive being an SSD for OS, etc.
This drive, i use for games and other misc. stuff, the games run fast enough, i can't really tell the difference from when i had them installed on the SSD.

This baby works very well as a backup

5 out of 5 eggsGreat drive, great price.

Pros: Small, quiet, fast, light weight, stays cool, requires only one cord, was on sale.

Cons: Nit picking here, but it is a fingerprint magnet.

Other Thoughts: Bought this to store backup images of the OS partitions of all my families PCs, my favorite Steam games, and my iTunes library. More than enough room for all this.
