5 out of 5 eggsGreat little drive

Pros: Fast, quiet, slim. Fits easily in laptop case, or shirt pocket for that matter. I have 4 of these and never had a disconnect. Maybe other reviewers have a different setup than mine. Did the drive disconnect from the computer, or did the computer disconnect from the drive? Hmmm...

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: Make that 5. I'm about to buy another one!

2 out of 5 eggsDisconnect Issues

Pros: Small and light. Silver "brushed-metal" variant matches pretty closely with aluminum Mac and accessories. I purchased this to replace an external that took close to an hour for each Time Machine backup; with this drive backups happen so quickly that I don't ever see the computer performing them, even though my computer only supports USB 2.

Cons: The drive disconnects itself. Unlike other reviewers, I've never had the drive disconnect while the computer was in use - it only seems to occur when the computer is suspended ("sleeping"). Even then, it isn't consistent. Sometimes I can go a week without a disconnect, other times it seems to happen daily. I've tried plugging the drive to a powered USB hub and directly to my computer, but it doesn't make a difference. I've been using the drive for 4-5 months now and this issue has not changed during that time.

Other Thoughts: I purchased the drive at a phenomenal sale price. I'll try to work with Seagate's warranty program to see if perhaps my drive or its cable came from a faulty batch. The drive could probably work nicely as a portable drive that isn't always connected to the computer. For my purposes the disconnects are unsatisfactory. In light of others having similar or worse experiences with disconnections, I'd avoid purchasing this drive unless there are many positive reviews that come afterwards, which would indicate that it was likely a batch issue.

1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY

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.

Pros: I was interested in buying this drive for its portable size , as well my confident on a Seagate drive.
I didn't use it the first month, but after a week of using it it's stop working

Cons: My computer doesn't recognized if there is anything plugged in, all driver are installed correctly.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat backup solution!

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

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

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

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.
