5 out of 5 eggsGreat product!

Pros: Fast, durable, sleek, USB 3.0

Cons: Nothing

Other Thoughts: This is a nice little product. I kind of wish I went for 1TB but I'm still happy with the size of it. Haven't had a single issue in the time I have it. I hope this drive holds its integrity like my other Seagate drives!!

2 out of 5 eggsCapacity Issues

Pros: Nice form factor. Like the removeable USB plug to expose the SATA connector. Decent performance.

Cons: Bought one a while back and it came in as a 250GB model, even though it was/is clearly marked as a 500GB model. Noticed it too late to return it.

Bought another one, from a different store, and same problem. 232GB of free space. Clearly marked as a 500GB model.

Other Thoughts: Did Seagate have a batch come out marked incorrectly?

1 out of 5 eggsGarbage!

Pros: Cheap. Worked Great when it did.

Cons: I had this drive for just over 6 months and it just died on me. Thought I would give Seagate another shot and of course it came back to bite me. Buy cheap, Buy twice. Don't risk your money on this drive, I certainly won't be going with Seagate again.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Drive

Pros: Win 7 HP, 64 bit. Plugged it in; it was recognized; it worked.

Cons: The USB 3.0 cord is proprietary but it is 18 inches long so this is not really a problem for me. If you need longer there are extension cords available.

Other Thoughts: I was able to do a HD "image" using 3rd party software quickly with no errors. I didn't clock the speed, but it completed a 110G compressed backup fast enough for me. This drive is light, compact and easy to store away as a safe source for file recovery when needed.
