5 out of 5 eggsGreat portable or backup solution

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive STDR2000102 Blue

Pros: Hard drive is compact and easily fits in a pocket on my notebook bag or even a pants pocket on cargo style pants. Transfer is fast and the device looks awesome.

Cons: price point is a bit high compared to some other backup solutions, but does offer portability larger physical size disks that are cheaper do not offer.

Other Thoughts: Would have rather seen a powered micro usb interface as those are more common, but a great device none the less.

5 out of 5 eggsThis thing is tiny!

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive STDR2000102 Blue

Pros: 2 TB in a tiny package. Actual storage comes in at 1.81 TB.

This thing is tiny! Much smaller than I was expecting. It's smaller than my S5. Thicker but smaller in height and width.

Runs very cool. It's cool to the touch. So far it puts out an almost imperceptible amount of heat. You can barely feel it at all. I have it standing up not lying down if that makes a difference.

Clocked in at 121.5 MB/s READ and 124 MB/s WRITE using USB 3.0.

Cons: The included USB cable is insanely short.

Other Thoughts: This drive seems to be great at transferring very large INDIVIDUAL files but not so much at very large files consisting of numerous smaller files. I went to back up my ebook collection which consists of 10's of thousands of files and it estimated 20 hours to completion. The total size was about 26 GB. I rared the collection into a single 26 GB file and it transferred the entire thing in about a minute or so.

5 out of 5 eggs2nd Review

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive STDR2000102 Blue

Pros: Well, the drive arrived today. I opened the case, and low and behold, there was a samsung spinpoint m9t with 2000GB of storage on it, in a standard 9.5mm chassis, and with a standard SATA plug. I am happily copying 1.2 terrabytes of movies to the drive as I type this. The case, while easily opened, is impossible to open without at least a small amount of scoring and damage- and I ended up bending the blue aluminum piece enough to destroy the utility of the case when opening it. It's reasonably fast for a drive of this capacity at this price point- Im averaging about 60-70MB/s in the drive to drive transfer from a 1tb WDC drive. I would like to repeat myself on one point... THIS DRIVE, WHILE 2TB IN SIZE, WILL NOT CORRECTLY SNYCH WITH A PLAYSTATION 4. There are a couple of jerry-rigging tricks you can use to make it boot successfully most of the time, but an HGST K1500 will get you 75% of the drivespace, and require non of the tricks to use, it will just work. If upgrading your brand new current gen gaming console is your goal, then the HGST drive is a MUCH better choice. Just saying...

Cons: I have a couple of concerns over longevity. Obviously, since this is day one, we know nothing of that, yet... but I have my concerns, and those concerns are based on the business plan behind this drive. Why no bare drive available? Well, one possible reason to NOT market this device that way would be a high failure rate- because by opening the enclosure, I've voided my warranty, so if it dies tomorrow morning, I have no recourse. If it dies prematurely, I will post a followup review reflecting that fact, but it is worth noting that the failure rates on ALL hard disk drives go up orders of magnitude when you breach 1tb... no idea why, but ask anyone that works in a datacenter with a lot of nearline storage, and they will tell you the same.

Other Thoughts: Im now running 4tb of platters, and a pair of 120gb SSDs... all internally installed into a single laptop. Awesome....

5 out of 5 eggsA previous poster...

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive STDR2000102 Blue

Pros: ...stated that this drive contains a spinpoint m9t. I have no idea if this is true or not, but Ive been wanting one of those for my laptop, and seagate does NOT sell the drive by itself, at least at this time. OEMs only. So I have ordered one, we'll find out shortly what is inside. This same poster also comments that this drive will fit any laptop and a PS4.... but he neglects to mention that the PS4 and spinpoint drives are not compatible, even in a 1tb size. If you were thinking of ordering this drive to upgrade your playstation 4 to 2tb drivespace, save your money... there is some sort of synchronization issue, and it will not work. No idea about Xbox One support.

Cons: That the internal drive is not available as a bare drive.

5 out of 5 eggsBought for PS4 HDD upgrade

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive STDR2000102 Blue

Pros: Just as fast as original drive, but four times larger, drive made by Samsung, getting good reviews as the standalone drive to buy. Disassembly of chassis is fairly simple and YouTube video of similar product disassembly is available.

Cons: Samsung may or may not warranty the drive if it fails. Knowing Samsung as a reputable company, the odds are probably better than 50/50 that they will. Either way, legally they have no obligation to do so.

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive STDR2000102 Blue

Pros: Thinnest 2TB portable external HDD to date.

Reasonable speed - 110MB/s read/write for large files over USB 3.0.

Contains the Samsung M9T/Seagate ST2000LM003 internal SATA 2.5" HDD which is the first ever 9.5mm 2TB 2.5" drive. The drive can be removed by prying off the aluminum cover. The internal drive fits most laptops and PS4.

Cons: Runs warm after prolonged use.
