5 out of 5 eggsVery nice drive

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive STDR2000103 Red

Pros: Fast speed, quiet, and very nice looking

Cons: -

Other Thoughts: I really like the looks of this drive, both the color and the slim design. I get good transfer speeds also with it.

I mainly am writing this review to make a comment about its sleep mode. This drive is set by default to run constantly and never sleep. I was not happy with that as it will shorten its life.

However I learned that the Seagate Dashboard software has an option to set the sleep time. When you install/load the software, click on the red drive icon on the upper left side of the screen window. Then for me, it takes over 30 seconds before the options will appear where you can set the sleep time. I don't know why the delay but its there.

Another good thing about setting it is that it seems to store the setting on the drive or firmware itself, so you can then use it on other devices and have it go to sleep at the set time.

I'm using mine with an Android media player (Minix x8-h)

2 out of 5 eggsHD failed after 6 months

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive STDR2000103 Red

Pros: Nice slim design, color is nice, 2 TB for this price is great...

Cons: BUT
The drive has failed after less than 6 months of use. Very glad I have 2 other external HDs, but it totally sucks that this one failed with my entire music catalog on it.

Other Thoughts: Bought this because I've had no issues with the 1TB Seagate I have. Thinking I ought to go back to Lacie (which is my other 1TB HD that has not had any problems knock on wood.) Disappointing, very disappointing.

2 out of 5 eggsDrive disappears during file copy

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive STDR2000103 Red

Pros: Light, thin, quiet. USB 3.0.

Cons: The 2 TB HDD "disappears" by itself after 20 to 60 GB of copy. It happened 3 times in 2 hours, and I tried to reboot my desktop, but still happen. Only solution, stop the copy, unplug the USB port, then replug it and restart the file copy.
Not reliable, and it won't qualify as a reliable backup device. So I return it and switch to WD.
I didn't try to reformat or spend too much time on this. It's supposed to backup, and it should work flawlessly. It does not.

Other Thoughts: Speed in USB 2.0 was 25 MB/s, USB 3.0 was 64 MB/s.
I won't comment on the backup software as I didn't use it.

5 out of 5 eggsGood deal for the money.

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive STDR2000103 Red

Pros: I tested the drive by copying 500GB's of music files. Took about 1.25 hours at 95MB per minutes. The drive was warm not hot. Hope it last through the warranty.

Cons: None
