4 out of 5 eggsWarranty wierdness

Pros: Drive is as advertised. Very black, very simple, very angular. But who cares - you're going to put it on top of your PC and forget it's there, or stuff it in a drawer somewhere and forget it's there.

Cons: None so far as I can tell

Other Thoughts: The warranty on these drives is apparently 1 year, though trying to find that out took me at least 15 minutes. The top of the retail box contains the ambiguous text "1 Year Limited Warranty 2 Year Limited Warranty 3 Year Limited Warranty" with no way to tell which the product has. The only way I found was to go to their website at support.seagate.com/warranty and punch in the serial and product numbers.

The first of 2 drives I purchased I registered using the registration application on the drive. Then I searched for it's warranty: 360 days (5 less than 1 year). The second drive, still in its box, I didn't register. I punched its serial and product numbers into the warranty search and it came back with 367 days, basically 1 year from 2 days from now. ???? I don't get it either.

I'll be buying a lot of these for clients and using them to backup their systems. So I'll have a better idea of reliability down the road.

5 out of 5 eggsStill going strong after 2 years

Pros: Fast transfer due to USB 3.0 cable, still working 2 years later. I noticed when I bought the drive there were very few reviews from people who had owned drives for over a month, which is why I'm writing this now!

Cons: I see that the price has now dropped to about half of what I paid for it 2 years ago. No complaints though!

1 out of 5 eggsAwful hard drive

Pros: small and light......that's it.....

Cons: Wants to install unnecessary software and you can't fight it or the hard drive will screw up on you. If you do manage to win and get info on the drive, you will find that all of your data will be corrupted and useless. Also would only work in one of my 4 USB 3.0 ports even though I know the others work

Other Thoughts: Buy a Western Digital or Toshiba instead. Never had problems with them

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet, small, sleek and transfers data hella-fast.

Pros: Everything about this external is great. The price and functionality can't be beat.

Buy this external. The cord is short but who cares? The external was only $60. Go out a buy another cord if it is such a big deal.

The external is USB powered. Meaning there is no need to plug the external into an additional outlet to get it to work. This is a pro for everyone on the planet except me probably. I prefer externals that have an additional plug so they do not drain my laptop battery. I didn't think of this until I got the external in the mail. No biggie though.

Cons: None. Buy it.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks with Channel Master DVR+

Pros: - Worked right away with no issues.
- Requires no external power source.

Cons: - None so far

Other Thoughts: We purchased this to use with our Channel Master DVR+ (CM-7500GB16R), which doesn't work with all USB hard drives. Can confirm it worked perfectly.
