1 out of 5 eggsDon't trust seagat products

Pros: it has slightly less than 500 free gb of space.

Cons: mine worked just find for around 2 days, but sadly denied me access on the third day to any files in the hard drive.

I reformatted it, lost 25gb, and now I can load files into the hard drive but in the process it seems to corrupt the files.

The price looks great, and yes somehow it got a great review. Well I was a sucker, don't be me.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect for wii u storage.

Pros: Although I mainly only use this for Eshop Nintendo games(smaller games can still take up to 1.4 gigs), it suits my needs quite perfectly. Very light weight and sleek, and at a pretty decent price as well.

Cons: I haven't experienced any issues or things to complain about with it so far. After formatting it for the Wii u storage, works just as I needed it to.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat buy

Pros: Cheap, Nice Capacity, Easy to use. The detachable SATA interface is fantastic.

Cons: None that I can find.

Other Thoughts: For those complaining about the LED lights being bright... there are settings in the installable "dashboard" to turn them always on/off, or only lit when active.

4 out of 5 eggsGood drive for the money

Pros: Price for 500GB is great. Speed for USB 2.0 is good. Faster writes than thumb drives and reads at least as good with tons more capacity.

Cons: white activity light is a bit bright (but hey use it as a night light!) . I would rather have it come on when their is activity. Instead it stays on when plugged in and pulsates when active.

Other Thoughts: Bought it because it was the cheapest 500 GB external for my mom to use for movies pictures and backups.

5 out of 5 eggsRed Drive

Pros: It's a Seagate and a great little drive, especially for the price.
I don't care for red, but it don't bother the performance, so I'll live with it.

Cons: None for me.
