4 out of 5 eggsGood for portable/temp storage

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus Slim 1TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive STDR1000100 Black

Pros: Thought I'd chime in here. We were given one of these as a gift a while ago and I've been using it over that last year with pretty heavy usage. I have to say that it's been reliable without any r/w errors. I also put a piece of tape between the cable and the drive to keep it in place.

Cons: Nothing.

Other Thoughts: With ANY little drive like this, you have to look at this as temporary storage because if it's portable, it's more likely it'll be bumped or dropped. If you're unlucky or just careless, POOF goes your data. So just remember to always keep the files backed up to some other drive too.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as expected

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus Slim 1TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive STDR1000100 Black

Pros: Slim
Blue!

Cons: Have to buy a case
(not really a con)

Other Thoughts: I do video editing for my church and I recommended this drive for archiving footage. I was not disappointed. The build quality is pretty sturdy however I would be paranoid about scratching the anodized finish. This drive will just be one to offload footage to once a month and then put on a shelf. I have USB 2.0 so I can't comment on speed :/ Overall pretty pleased :)

3 out of 5 eggs33 percent failure out of the box

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus Slim 1TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive STDR1000100 Black

Pros: 1. Decent price.
2. Two drives worked (which is expected, right?), one died (not a "pro", really). I wanted to give 1 or maybe 2 eggs, but felt bad since two out of three of my drives do work well.

Cons: Several problems.
1. The USB cable is stiff and quite short. The bottom of the drive case is smooth plastic. When using the backup, the drive easily slips off the table or chair arm, or whatever, because the cable is so short any movement of your computer drags the drive around. A rubberized coating on the bottom of the drive would be helpful.
2. The Seagate "dashboard" backup program supplied on the drive itself and set to auto load is really bad. I recommend you NOT use it. Instead, use the backup feature in windows (my OS is Win7). If you DO install and use the Seagate dashboard, be very careful NOT to interrupt the first backup operation. You might kill the drive if you do.
3. Bought three drives, one worked for about 3 minutes then died (or was killed by some USB or Windows operation). Actually, the drive is probably still good, but it wont work for me; its a brick. I have tried to uninstall, re-install, search for new drivers, roll back the driver, EVERYTHING. Nothing helped. The power light won't come on, the drive does not show up as a USB device. BUT IT DID WORK ONE TIME. Then stopped. Now Windows 7 reports: "Code 43. Windows has stopped this device because..."
4. Even the registration program that pops up automatically is a joke. The serial number self-populates in the registration form, but after I filled in the rest of my info and pressed the "register" button, i got an error message telling me that there was a letter in the serial number sequence that was not allowed. BUT THE SERIAL NUMBER was correct, and the program filled it in automatically!! When I get lousy programs supplied with a tech product, I tend to judge the entire product and the company poorly. The Seagate software sucks.

Other Thoughts: I researched, I considered WD, Seagate, and a few other products. Finally settled on Seagate, which was a mistake. One dead drive out of three. Now I have to RMA, pack for shipping, beg for Newegg to cover mailing costs back to the shipper (why should I pay?). Pain in the bum; why can't Seagate build and sell products that are worth the money and do the job they are supposed to do?

5 out of 5 eggsNot a bad drive

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus Slim 1TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive STDR1000100 Black

Pros: Drive arrived in 4 days using the Super Saver shipping, in excellent condition and packaged carefully. The drive is in perfect working order with no signs of previous owners.

Write speed is right around 75mbs while transferring large movie files. The drive is currently formatted in exFAT with a file allocation of 32768 kb. (I do a lot of work between Windows and Mac)

Cons: I know it's common, but it only has 931GB. Not enough to deduct an egg, but heck, that's not a full TB.

Other Thoughts: I bought this drive when it was 30% off and I had a promo code from the email to take $20 more off the final price, which made it $69.99. Great deal.

3 out of 5 eggsBack to the drawing board

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus Slim 1TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive STDR1000100 Black

Pros: price at the time, plug and play, portable, extra storage space. Can run in usb 2.0 mode using a blackberry or android phone charging cord on the big end of the plug in the back of the drive. Excellent experience with Seagate customer service 1-800-SEAGATE

Cons: price drop after I bought it, could have saved another $20 if I waited a bit longer. Does not work with WinXP sp1. Needs 3.5 floppy for system backups. Seagate dashboard does not always load.

Other Thoughts: After exhausting all possible options and talking with seagate support it was determined that the drive would have to be replaced by seagate at no extra charge to me whatsoever. The only concern I had was what would happen to the info I had stored on the drive. Since they were only copies I did not need data recovery service and seagate is prided on either destroying said files or the platter from the drive itself if the data cannot be completely destroyed. I also requested a copy of the paperwork once the data/drive platter is destroyed just in case for my own peace of mind. Seagate said they would accomodate. I gave it a rating of 3 eggs because of my experience with Seagate Customer Service. The drive itself would be at most 2 eggs
