1 out of 5 eggsCan't recommend for ANYONE

Pros: Worked well initially

Cons: Lasted 6 months then went dead. This drive was not abused, it was used for storing large packages of installation media needed for my job. I carried it with me in my laptop bag so I always have the media I needed.

Other Thoughts: Very disappointed in both Seagate for building a drive that last just long enough to get the customer down the road, as well as Newegg for giving this item a 30 day warranty.

3 out of 5 eggsWas ok until it went crazy with bad sectors.

Pros: Worked great until it corrupted all of my data then will only store 10Gb of things before formatting itself.

Cons: TL;DR Worked for a while before it broke. Seagate refuses to return it. Why? Who knows.

Other Thoughts: I would be fine with it breaking if Seagate would of helped me get a new one. Ok product but horrible support.

1 out of 5 eggsBusted

Pros: Worked great while it actually functioned properly.

Cons: Had this for about a month now and now after a Windows automatic update this evening, all my data is unreadable for some reason. Cannot access any of the files stored on it or recover any of them.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible

Pros: USB 3.0
Small Form Factor

Cons: This hard drive became unreadable after two weeks of use. I now have 900 gb of stored data that's unreadable.

Maybe I received a defective hard drive but this experience makes me want to stay away from Seagate

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect

Pros: 1.5TB, USB 3.0

Very fast, compact and light weight. USB powered cord. Nice no-slip rubber feet. No finger prints on this one! It's perfect for me.

Cons: The size MIGHT be a con for others. Its the length of a CD case. Slightly bigger due to its case but still still very sleek and compact.

Other Thoughts: I will update in the future if need be. Happy shopping.
