5 out of 5 eggsreliable

Pros: I have used this drive semi-regularly as a backup for six or seven years, and it's still going.

Cons: Not the fastest drive in the world, but it's usb2 anyway.

4 out of 5 eggsFirst Unit Died - Second Unit OK

Pros: Drive is fast and quiet.

Cons: The drive is larger and heavier than I would like but smaller/lighter drives of the same capacity are more expensive.
My first unit died after a week's of use but the second unit is OK.

Other Thoughts: The first unit died after about one week of use. I exchanged it for another unit; it seems OK and works well -- very fast. The really bright spot is NewEgg's exchange policy -- they exchanged drives with little delay and no hassles.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Hard Drive

Pros: This is a great external hard drive. Very fast and stylish, and it comes with easy to use software. It is hot-swappable so you don't need to turn off your computer to plug it in and for Windows to recognize it. It needs no installation - Windows XP recognized it right away.

Cons: None, except make sure you format the drive to NTFS since it is in FAT32 out of the box. NTFS is more reliable so make sure you do this (it can easily be done using the provided software.)

Pros: Easy to set up

Cons: Didn't make a full backup of my RAID array. Probably my bust, but doing it manually file by file bad!

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Easy setup, temparature is very stable

Cons: came in FAT32 which is not a big deal to convert to NTFS. I often leave this thing on serveral days, even on idle mode it does heat up.

2 out of 5 eggsPoor power supply design

Pros: Quiet and easy to use.

Cons: The power supply and cord are bulky and the s-video-looking power connector is terrible. It doesn't connect near solidly enough and falls out sometimes. It gets worse with age. After 8 months of light use, I now have to be careful not to bump the drive when I am using it for fear of it losing power.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: I was running out of space on my trusty old Maxtor internal drive and needed a new one, quick. I wanted reliability and quietness. It's too early to comment on reliability--I have only Seagate's reputation to count on there--but this *is* a quiet drive, as in "totally inaudible unless I put my ear up to the case." Additionally, I have been running this unit constantly since I first plugged it in and there is no heat build-up on the vented plastic case. The true test of its performance was playing high-bitrate movies ripped of DVDs from my burgeoning collection--no problem there. I just hope it proves durable because it's going to get used a great deal.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsSuper fast

Comments: I got this Drive from dell since they cut me a deal but this Drive is amazing i transfer over a 1GB of Pictures from my Europe trip to in in about 45 secs not to mention its as big as my internal harddrive. But the greatest part is that it runs at less than 25decibles it is barely hearable Great buy if ur looking for a sleek fast and quiet external drive
