5 out of 5 eggsCasing (response to the 1 star review)

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 500GB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive STBU500102 Blue

Pros: compact, quiet. comes with USB3 connector but backward compatible. can use connectors you already have from Goflex drives (prior generation)

Cons: sometimes these drives come bundled with a simple case which helps if you are carrying around in a bag, but that isnt the case with these drives. The drives do however git into the goflex and freeagent cases if you have any from previous drives

Other Thoughts: a question was posted with a 1 star review asking what the case was made of. Like the last generation of backup drives (goflex) the cases are plastic. the drives run silently and dont appear to get hot. HTH

1 out of 5 eggsRe: Seagate STBU500102

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 500GB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive STBU500102 Blue

Pros: Just a question about this drive, since I didn't find the information here or on the Seagate home site.

What is the casing of this drive made of?

If it is aluminium, it will provide ample cooling since 2 1/2" drives do not generate a lot of heat; but if it is plastic, these drives, which are available in 5 colours, by the way, will die a premature heat death.

Thank you for addressing this problem.

Cons: none yet

Other Thoughts: This is just a question I am directing to the staff at Newegg, since I did not find the answer on the Seagate home site.
