1 out of 5 eggsDisconnects when using USB3

Pros: Hasn't failed on me

Cons: Constantly disconnects when transferring large or many files when plugged into a USB 3 port. Have to restart the PC to get it to recognize this unit.

Constantly makes clicking and scary beep noises

Other Thoughts: Avoid this overpriced and unreliable drive.

1 out of 5 eggsConstant problems

Pros: It hasn't totally failed yet.

Cons: This drive has been a constant problem. I get click of death sounds and frequent loud whirring that wakes me up at night. The drive disconnects when viewing media stored on it, and Seagate customer service has been a huge pain. They respond to requests for help with copy, pasted statements that don't relate to my issue, every time I have e-mailed them.

Other Thoughts: I will never buy from Seagate again.

1 out of 5 eggsAbsurd design flaw for enclosure = cooked drive

Pros: Fast drive, nice clean looking enclosure. 2 year warranty is great so you can replace it under RMA after it dies of a self inflicted heat death.

Cons: I have no idea how this product ever made it to market. I can't fathom that Seagate wouldn't have done some basic temperature testing. If you set up SMART monitoring on this drive you'll get regular warnings about the temperature exceeding the max threshold. These drives basically cook themselves to death.

Other Thoughts: The enclosure needs to be completely redesigned for better airflow. There's a fast 7200rpm drive inside which the enclosure can't come close to cooling properly. If you don't monitor the SMART status everything will seem fine for a while. Do yourself a favor and set up monitoring, and run Seatools before your warranty expires.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: Reliable, fast since its usb 3.0. comes with a hard drive adapter, decent software and everything is just plug and play. cool space indication light

Cons: standing it up vertically makes it feel a lil wobbly. wires could be a just a tad bit more longer.

Other Thoughts: excellent price. came with another portable hard drive as a deal when i bought it

1 out of 5 eggsIt Will Fail On You.

Pros: None. I'd give it 0 (zero) eggs if the rating system would allow it.

Cons: It Will Fail On You.

Failed within 1 (one) month of light-duty use.

It's like being con'd: build up confidence, then take you for everything you invested. Even if you're backed up, it's a massive inconvenience.

Never buying Seagate again; the only trouble I've ever had with drives malfunctioning has been with Seagate brand drives. Should have listened to my gut.

Other Thoughts: At least the drive is covered under warranty at the moment.

1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY

Pros: None

Cons: This drive is complete garbage. It completely failed on us in less than a year and we've lost 6 years worth of photos of our 6 year old son, not to mention other important files, that we've been trying to back up via a cloud backup service for weeks now, due to an unexplained hard drive failure.

5 out of 5 eggs Oh My Goodness

Pros: Oh My 3 Tb or should I say 2.8 Tb or so it is still massive! I think this isn't for everyone out there but who really knows this is "3 eggs rate" i give it a 5 eggs useful for me.

Cons: I dont care about the 2 years warranty. It said this doesn't work with linux but after format it from windows it works. screw the software they give you!
It over heats becuase i dont work in a office or house but out doors -.- but it should not heat up too much if in office or house.

Other Thoughts: Best 2.8 TB drive. warning get a ups for safety where i work theres brown out sometimes black out for few seconds sucks when copy files suddenly power goes out and it could hurt hard drive. a good steady voltage is good for smooth operation. ups is always recommened for any users just for safety.

4 out of 5 eggsno problem so far

Pros: nice design

Cons: upright design causes me problems. I accidentally knocked it down a couple of times (lucky not spinning at that time).

Other Thoughts: i took the hdd out a couple of times. the trick is that you can "pull" the base (like SATA adapter) out and connect to another internal hdd if needed!

5 out of 5 eggsI still hate Seagate but this drive is great

Pros: I have owned this drive since November 2011 (got it on a black Friday special) I could not resist the price. It has worked well for me did not die when I encrypted the whole drive and wrote random dummy data which had the drive running for... a freaking long time.... It has been really good.

Cons: I am just waiting to regret trusting my data to this drive.

I have had some terrifying experiences with Seagate drives and support in the past. They tempted me with horrendously low prices on this one and I caved....

Other Thoughts: I hope sincerely that this drive lasts for at least three years considering I mostly just dump data to it and then leave it sit.
