5 out of 5 eggsFantastic drive

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive STDR2000100 Black

Pros: This is a 9mm tall drive. The internal drive is the M9T.
I use these to upgrade PS4's hard drives.
As of the 1.71 firmware update from SONY for the PS4 it's been working perfectly.
Earlier than that their firmware did not support the drive for some reason.
It also works great in compatible notebooks as well, I will probably make it the third drive in my Dell Precision 6600 soon.

Cons: I can only get the external drive from Newegg and not the internal only.

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice and small drive

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive STDR2000100 Black

Pros: Great drive. Installation was easy and had windows backing up my drive in no time at all (except for the transfer but 600+ GBs of stuff can be a bit lengthy).

Cons: Small connector cable.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing, Small size

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive STDR2000100 Black

Pros: Small, light weight, easily carry in cargo pocket of shorts.
USB 3.0, 2TB! Great price, I paid only $109 for mine! Can't beat Seagate!

Cons: The cable was Extremely short! I use this with my 17.3" laptop and I like a longer cable as it allows me to place the drive out of the way

5 out of 5 eggsI'm really impressed

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive STDR2000100 Black

Pros: -very small with 2TB
-good speed

Cons: -gets hot after prolonged use
-the cable is short
-careful not to hit/touch the cable, it is easily removed.

Other Thoughts: I am just amazed how small the HDD is...I was looking at a Iomega "portable" drive from 2007 which is a giant in comparison with the dimensions of the Seagate one and is only 350GB...

5 out of 5 eggsWorks flawlessly w PS4 fw 1.70

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive STDR2000100 Black

Pros: Cheapest way to get the Spinpoint M9T 2TB drive. It's the only 9.5mm 2TB drive I'm aware of, and a great deal at this price. Even better, as long as your PS4 is updated to 1.70 firmware (and you then do a full initialize install of 1.70 on this drive) it works flawlessly. Previous PS4 firmwares weren't compatible with this drive, but 1.70+ work great. Awesome upgrade for your PS4 internal drive.

Cons: Cracking the case open is a bit tricky, mine got bent a bit as I was trying to get the drive out. Unless you're extremely careful you'll have a hard time reusing this case+usb3 to sata adapter for another drive without it looking a little messed up.

5 out of 5 eggsno USM, no problem

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive STDR2000100 Black

Pros: - Tiny, solid enclosure
- quiet and fast 32MB cache
- Samsung SATA 9mm drive inside
- 2 year warranty

Cons: - no longer USM (SATA/USB removal-able adapter)

Other Thoughts: Big fan of Seagate since they are the last manufacturer who still makes portable external drives that are still standard SATA drives. Their previous drives were USM, but obviously that had to go to make it this tiny. There is barely enough space for shielding then the case itself.

Take it apart by carefully pulling off the metal lid. Lid is stuck on by tape and small notches. Inside is a Samsung ST2000LM003. Performance via SATA:

Sequential: 120-58MB
4k: .63/1.8MB read/write
4k (32 queue): 1.4/2.0MB read/write

4k reads increased with queue depth so NCQ works. I would buy one more next time it's on sale. Keep up to great work Seagate, but do bring back USM.

5 out of 5 eggsIn the Field Back-Ups

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive STDR2000100 Black

Pros: I use it as the U: drive for back-ups when down loading (RAW) photos to my HyperDrive stand-alone card reader/viewer, the speed is limited by my rechargeable card reader.

Cons: Doesn't plug into the USM bay in my NAS (yet)?

Other Thoughts: FAT-32 has a 2TB limit, so they've gone there, done that.
