1 out of 5 eggsWould help if I could write files to it!

This review is from: Seagate STDR1000102 Backup Plus Slim 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive

Pros: None that I found.

Cons: I attempted to use this device to backup a relative's Mac. Instructions on how to accomplish this task are buried and hard to find. Essentially I was to drag and drop files onto the drive. BUT the drive refused to allow me to write anything to it.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid, Fast Backup Drive with Simple Software

This review is from: Seagate STDR1000102 Backup Plus Slim 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive

Pros: Fast on USB 3.0. Easy-to-set software for weekly backups.

Cons: None so far. Will update if that changes.

Other Thoughts: I bought this for a friend who is not tech savvy. I wanted something that she could plug in once a week for backups and unplug when backup is complete. This accomplishes that. Very easy to install and use the software.

5 out of 5 eggsworks great

This review is from: Seagate STDR1000102 Backup Plus Slim 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive

Pros: USB 3.0, blue color (yay!), small and lightweight, huge storage capacity that matches my internal HDD's capacity.

Cons: Can't spit out a winning Lottery ticket.
Can't make me a sandwich.

*sigh*

Other Thoughts: I just received it in the mail today, and immediately hooked it up to my computer to start backing up my OS before doing an OS upgrade. It comes with installers for both Win & Mac to install Seagate's Dashboard program. I am not using it, but from what I gathered by my quick glance in the QuickStart booklet, it sets up an auto-backup program for you. Can also apparently backup your Android or iOS phone as well (download the app from your App/Play store). I use Linux and am not backing up my cell phone, so this Dashboard program won't work for me, and thus I can't comment on how well it works. Sorry guys.

Using my Linux OS's built-in backup tools, everything backed up to the Seagate portable drive quickly and easily. Linux auto-recognised the drive without issue. Files saved without issue. Everything worked as expected. I am happy.

5 out of 5 eggsStylish and Reliable

This review is from: Seagate STDR1000102 Backup Plus Slim 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive

Pros: I needed an external hard drive for school. This one was the perfect size (needed 500gb or higher) and I must say I was very happy it came in a very nice blue color. the fact that it works with both mac and pc without needing to be reformatted made it even better, as I was dealing with macs in school and my pc at home. After a semester of working in maya and flash I still have plenty of room left on my hard drive.

Cons: ... it didn't come with its own carrying case? (doesn't have anything in the con category)

2 out of 5 eggsfrustrating

This review is from: Seagate STDR1000102 Backup Plus Slim 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive

Pros: Reasonably priced when on sale
Blue
Compact

Cons: Support Website is useless
Seagate Dashboard Program is useless
Provided USB cable is short

Other Thoughts: After owning for several months and spending hours trying to get the frustrating Seagate Dashboard (the on-board software that manages the drives backup features) to work, I threw in the towel and just let Windows 7 backup utilities do the job.

Like some other users, the program will install just fine and attempt its first backup. At some point early on the process, it gets stuck. I'm not being impatient; I could probably manually transcribe binary for each of the files in the amount of time I've let this program spin its wheels.

One of the reasons I picked up this drive is that it is supposed to back up your files continuously, should you choose to do so, but I can't do that with bogus software.

I should have just used Windows Backup instead in the first place, but since my problem seems to be common, I thought for sure I could find a workaround online. Nope. I'm not interested in spending hours of my life on the phone with tech support just to get the basic features of the drive to work as intended.

I'd give it 1 star, but Windows Backup was able to backup the files, so technically the drive works.
