3 out of 5 eggsSome Good Some Bad

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

Pros: Seagate Brand, Fast Transfer Speeds, Continuous Backup, Great Newegg Price.

Cons: Dashboard loads only on single machine (despite being portable drive). Does not do full image backup (useful to migrate to SSD)

Other Thoughts: Very good solution for someone who just wants to backup data on a single computer and has all system and application disks for a real disaster. Can't beat Newegg Pricing!!!

3 out of 5 eggsAffordable Backup

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

Pros: GREAT Newegg PRICE!!! especially on sale. Fast USB 3.0 interface. Top quality brand. Nice build quality. Simple to use

Cons: Included backup software does not include image/clone capability - which is highly useful for reliable backups, upgrading to SSD and true data protection. This deducted 2-stars from an otherwise outstanding drive.

Other Thoughts: Yes copyright protection favors data only backup... However, some of us geeks have lots of computers and like to upgrade them with Solid State Drives. We also like to know that we can replace a hard drive, push a button and the computer is back up and running. Of course we keep every system and software disk for every computer and file them in CD/DVD notebooks, one for each computer; but, this method of restore (while optimal for initial capability) takes 1-2 days bench time (2-3 hours labor) to fully restore after hard drive replacement or failure. Conversely, using an image or clone file takes 10-minutes labor and 3-4 hours on the bench.

5 out of 5 eggsBackup plus is great so far.

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

Pros: Works great, very fast backing up data. I also had a problem with using motherboards USB 3. I had a USB 3 card I put in a expansion slot, at first it did not work I then went to their website and downloaded latest driver update, works very good now. Wish they would update their motherboard drivers mind did not have any. May be the reason some people are having problems.

Cons: None Just needed drivers for motherboard.

4 out of 5 eggsHandy Drive

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

Pros: Just works right out of the box. I have three of these and no problems. the USB3 interface is very fast. Plenty of storage and great portability. No need for en external power source to carry around.

Cons: Would like a slightly longer cable for better positioning. Maybe 3 feet.

Other Thoughts: The unit is a little lightweight. If you're going to leave this plugged in as a permanent backup, I suggest velcro to hold it into place. If using portable, you may want to stick a couple of rubber feet on it.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

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

Pros: Works just as described. I bought a nice little case for it also (Case Logic CAQHDC101B). Fits nice and snug.

Cons: The sata/power block seems a little flimsy, but for the price I can't complain.

5 out of 5 eggsFast enough for me

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

Pros: - 1tb is more than enough music/photo/video storage for the majority users.
- Comes with backup software that is easy to remove.

Cons: - No encryption
- Would be nice if it came with a protective sleeve of some sort like the old FreeAgent Go once did.

Other Thoughts: Haven't bothered with the backup software that came with drive since Seagate Manager has worked great for me for the past 5 years. Seagate Manager (already installed on the win7 box) picked up the new drive when I plugged it in and began the backup when I clicked start. Nothing crazy. A very simple and organized backup strategy.

I'll save the new software for when I move to Windows 8.

5 out of 5 eggsA fine backup

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

Pros: External HDDs are a dime a dozen. The nice thing about this line of externals is their physical size (not capacity); they are pretty compact. It's also nice to be able to choose your color: the blue model I have matches the blue LEDs in my case fans as well as my (soon to be replaced) blue backlit keyboard. My wife's red one matches the color of her case and LEDs.

Cons: The included USB 3.0 cord is rather short, only a foot or so long. Still, it's good enough to reach the USB 3.0 ports on my motherboard.

Other Thoughts: Phenom II X6 1100T
GA-990FXA-UD3
16GB GSkill ARES 1866MHz
Gigabyte Radeon 7950 (1000MHz)
PC P&C 950W Silencer Mk. II 80+ Silver
