1 out of 5 eggsA cautionary tale

Pros: Price when purchased was good and I always had good luck with Seagate drives.

Cons: About 2 months ago I started getting error messages while watching movies and passed it off as either the computer or X-Box. Now it is getting hard to move files and transfer items from this drive to my smaller drive. I can already read the writing on the wall, crash city here we come. I just hope I am able to get everything moved in time.

2 out of 5 eggsWon't stay connected

Pros: Cheap 2 Tb

Cons: Won't stay connected when ever its plugged in it disconnects all the time. Unable to test it because it wont stay connected long enough for me to test it. Dont Buy It. Buy Western Digital I have never had a problem with them. Every seagate I have owned has given me some trouble.

3 out of 5 eggsWon't always run at USB 3.0 speed

Pros: Removable USB adapter.

Sometimes works at USB 3.0 speed.

Cons: Works only at USB 2.0 speed with the very same USB 3.0 PCI-E controllers that always gave USB 3.0 speed with Western Digital Elements and cheap USB 3.0 drive enclosures.

Other Thoughts: Apparently Seagate isn't familiar enough with its own product to explain its slow speed with the most common USB 3.0 controller chips in the world (Renesas uPD7020xxx). They also denied there's any firmware in this GoFlex drive, yet the firmware for the internal drive is version CC9D and the firmware for the interface is 0D.1.9. Seagate tech support is much worse than it was in a prior century.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Backup Drive

Pros: I use this as a monthly backup drive. It is in my closet unless I am preforming the backup.

* It doesn't get very hot
* It's silent

Cons: I can't think of anything wrong with it. I have not had any problems and I have moved terabytes of data at a time with no issue.

Other Thoughts: Great drive. I have not had any problems whatsoever.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I use these for work to back up and archive large amounts of video files. I am now on my 18th drive in 2 years and no failures yet. The base is one of the best parts. I keep two plugged in to my computer and anytime I have to switch drives I just pop a new one on without having to unplug cords.

The only issue I have ever had was when I knocked one off of desk while it was on. Even then I was able to retrieve most of the data, but that was my own fault.

Cons: No cons. I'm sure I can come up with some but seriously, it's a 2TB drive for less that $150. It's perfect for backing up data.

5 out of 5 eggsIt works

Pros: Works! USB 3.0 connection, doesn't get too hot.

Cons: only 2 year warranty.

Other Thoughts: any hard drive should carry a 5 year warranty, anything less is sad.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat buy, but sloooooooow backup

Pros: Good price, good size, trusted name

Cons: The initial backup time seems ridiculously long using the included software (Memeo). Also, the software does not back up the whole startup drive, so why does it take so long?

Other Thoughts: It would have been easier if I just made a disk image using another piece of software and copied the image to this drive. Will see what happens when I back up my media drive and revise this review.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent drive

Pros: I had one for several months... and then I filled it up. That's when I bought a second one. Both are working fine. No issues whatsoever. When the second one fills up, I'll buy another.

Cons: The only "con" applies to absolutely every external hard drive I've seen - they don't "daisy chain." If you have only one USB 3.0 port but more than one USB 3.0 device, it's necessary to either choose which one is plugged in, or go online and buy a USB 3.0 hub (it seems no one carries these in stock at brick and mortar locations). If each drive had a port to connect another device, that would be wonderful.
