1 out of 5 eggsSure didn't last very long.

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 1TB 2.5" USB 3.0 Black Portable Hard Drive

Pros: It was cheap

Cons: Pooped out on me after about 3 months of somewhat non-frequent use. Really expected more. I've tried 3 separate hard drive cases and none of them worked so I'm assuming the actual hard drive went bad.

Other Thoughts: I'm going back to floppy discs.

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 1TB 2.5" USB 3.0 Black Portable Hard Drive

Pros: I haven't had any problems.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as I expected

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 1TB 2.5" USB 3.0 Black Portable Hard Drive

Pros: 1TB of Storage. One USB3 cable running to it. Computer recognized it immediately once I plugged it in.

Cons: There are a few files already loaded on to this thing when you get it. Nothing major, just some video ads and manuals and such.

4 out of 5 eggsbackup software difficult to install

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 1TB 2.5" USB 3.0 Black Portable Hard Drive

Pros: USB 3.0
portability
nice looking

Cons: Backup software requires several other Microsoft programs to install.
The installer can't remember where it left off after a failed install.

Other Thoughts: I bought this for my sister-in-law to automagically backup her laptop. The backup software has a lot of dependencies on microsoft programs, such as .net, c++ redist, etc. Had major problems trying to get those installed, (Windows update issues) and the project became a big mess, but I would have preferred a backup software that didn't have so many dependencies.
I ended up installing some other third party backup program since I never got the included back program to work.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 1TB 2.5" USB 3.0 Black Portable Hard Drive

Pros: This is a fantastic hard drive! It has a very sleek look to it and is the perfect size. The main connection detaches so you can use that for other SATA hard drives if you choose to. The speed is great and the price was even better!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Highly recommended!

5 out of 5 eggsSet it and forget it

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 1TB 2.5" USB 3.0 Black Portable Hard Drive

Pros: This is my 2nd. USM drive, I use it to transfer (RAW) photos down-loaded in the field then up-loaded to my desk-top work-station and/or NAS. I tend to leave it in my NAS after it's done with the one touch down-load so I'm not to concerned about how fast it works overnight.

Cons: ?

Other Thoughts: The newer version doesn't plug into an USM bay, and now you can get a USM receiver that you can install in an empty 5.25" bay.

5 out of 5 eggsFor $60, can't be beat

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 1TB 2.5" USB 3.0 Black Portable Hard Drive

Pros: Nice compact size, easy to tote, a truly portable HD solution. Fast using a USB 3.0 connection

Cons: Haven't found any yet.

Other Thoughts: I've used this to provide back-ups to PCs I have in two separate locations as well as doing some back-up images for my work computers. And the end-of-year price was the best!
