5 out of 5 eggsLooks and performs great

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

Pros: Great looking, reliable.

Cons: Not crazy about USB 3.0 interface.

Other Thoughts: I have four of them which I've been using for about a year with no problems whatsoever. Not crazy about the micro USB 3 interfaces (sneeze and they disconnect) but it's and industry standard so I can hardly blame Seagate. Great value at a relatively low price.

1 out of 5 eggsPretty but disfunctional

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

Pros: -Very slim and very light.
-2 tb
-Cheap
-pretty
-Copying to the drive seems like an ok speed

Cons: -Why seagate? I backed up all my data. I had to restore my system.
I was copying my data back and at what speed? Less then a mb per second. It took me about a day and a half to copy all my data back. I have another back up drive that is 6 years old which does not copy this slow.

1 out of 5 eggsInvasive software

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

Pros: Looks like it's working fine

Cons: Really don't like the software. & Too invasive and too simple a menu. My social accounts are shown right away in settings which tells me it's looking around in my computer.

While installing for some reason it sends over 2 mb of information out. It seems to be able to easily connect to the internet and I don't see any access to turn that off in the settings. If I knew this and knew of another that wouldn't be so invasive I would not have bought this. Very sneaky and disrespectful. I no longer trust this manufacturer.

Other Thoughts: Also, read instructions somewhere to be able to set it so it goes into "sleep" instead of being always on. Was supposed to be able to access that during set up but couldn't. So... perhaps this is a newer version of the software. Or perhaps it does "sleep". Don't know yet.

5 out of 5 eggsThe perfect PS4 hdd upgrade

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

Pros: I have another one of these as my backup and Ive kept it for close to a year and its running fine. For the 2nd one, I used it as my ps4 hdd. Took a flathead and went around the edges and took the bare hdd out and replaced the ps4 hdd and put the old ps4 500gb in the external closure to use as a backup source.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: It might take some effort on getting the hard drive out of the enclosure.

5 out of 5 eggsBeautiful and very functional

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

Pros: Very sleek, nice color, fast, highly portable.

Cons: None to speak of, although it would be nice to have the access light notify the user when connected to 3.0 vs. 2.0 like some Toshiba drives do.

Other Thoughts: Well worth the purchase. I have nothing bad to say really.

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.
