This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 500GB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive STBU500103 Red
Pros: The product works perfectly. I use it for a variety of functions, including p2p data transfer. The drive has no issues accessing the same file through multiple programs (ie, watching a video while uploading it).
Significantly, the drive also was completely fine after the cord came undone from the USB port by accident. So far, after eight months of heavy use, it shows no signs of slowing down.
Even with heavy usage, the drive doesn't overheat. While I can feel the drive working when I place my hand on it, I've never observed that it gets too hot, no matter where I put it.
Cons: The cord is really short. You have to keep the drive next to your computer at all times. An extension cord would be nice. If you have a laptop (as I do), there's a danger of the cord disconnecting from your USB port. A bit of caution and care is required.
Other Thoughts: I used Windows 7 with a laptop. I prefer to drag and drop files into the drive. I haven't tested it with Windows Backup.
