1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive STDR2000101 Silver

Pros: Compact design.

Cons: Died after only 5 months

Other Thoughts: Felt it necessary to write another 1-star review after seeing 2 (somewhat suspicious reviews) shortly after my first one. Buyer beware, say away from Seagate drives.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat backup solution!

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive STDR2000101 Silver

Pros: Small, fast, USB3.0 speed, silent, powered via USB so no separate cable nor supply

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Backups only happen if they're fast and easy. This drive makes that happen. Spend the money, it's a cheap insurance policy against the agony of a failed hard drive. I bought a second one (different color to keep track easier) and rotate them for additional security.

2 out of 5 eggsFrequent disconnects

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive STDR2000101 Silver

Pros: Very high capacity for as thin as it is. Sleek. Quiet.

Cons: The drive disconnects very frequently. When I get back to my computer, I see an insane amount of notifications complaining about how I failed to unmount the drive properly. This makes me very wary of using it as a backup drive because it might be difficult to get large files off if I am afraid of it disconnecting itself all the time.

Other Thoughts: I wanted to like this drive, but it appears it has some issues. I will likely try to get a warranty replacement. Be wary of this drive if you are going to use it for something semi-critical.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat drives, Great price

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive STDR2000101 Silver

Pros: Easy to use drive, plug in and set up. with its usb 3 capabilities transfering large amounts of data takes minutes.

Cons: Can't leave it plugged in constantly, so unmount it and strore in a safe, cool location.

Other Thoughts: Just in case u didn't know these drives aren't meant to be pluged in all the time. U risk damaging the components within the drive by overheating them.

4 out of 5 eggsFast write

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive STDR2000101 Silver

Pros: I bought two of these and so far so good. No problems on windows 7 pro. I'm using the USB 3.0 connections

Cons: Most the case is made of plastic, and only the top is made of what i feel is aluminum, the whole unit feels kind of fragile as you hold it with one hand. It does have an indicator white light Which is hard to spot on the case when is off . The Light itself fades back and forth very slowly on drive activity. I which instead it would blink fast as an indication of drive activity. The included cable is very short, just about 18'' long. Very difficult to use if you only have USB 3.0 on the back of your computer. The stiffness of the cable tends to move the whole unit so one must be careful to place the drive in a secure area/spot. It gets warm slowly as time goes by. But no issues in that area because I don't plan to keep them connected permanently, just to backup for a few minutes and that's it.

Other Thoughts: Had I known the con issues I probably would have looked somewhere else. But for now they are ok. At the price I got them, I'll overlook the con issues.

1 out of 5 eggsSeagate STDR2000101 - failed

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive STDR2000101 Silver

Pros: Nice looking, but does this help at all if your concern is the reliability and safety of your back-ups?

Cons: 3 separate read / write full tests failed (every single one) with errors right out the box, in the first 24 hours.
2 older 2.5" USB 3.0 external WD (500 Gb and 1 Tb) are passing without any problem the very same test every time (every 6 mo, usually)

Other Thoughts: Tried to give a chance to Seagate was just a waste of time.
RMA was easy and fast, but the wasted time is eventually compensated only by the peace in mind that I didn't take a chance that can turn much more costly in the future than it appears now.
