This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 1TB 2.5" USB 3.0 Black Portable Hard Drive
Pros: Was not able to use unit for intended purpose so Pros could not be developed.
Cons: Trying to operate unit on Windows Surface running 8.1. Would not install the bundled software nor the available (really had to search diligently) updated V2. Other users expressed frustration at results equal to mine.
Other Thoughts: The burden shouldn't be on the end-user to go to extraordinary steps to make a consumer device work. That's apparently what Seagate intends with this item. It's too bad as Seagate used to be a proud company.READ FULL REVIEW

Other Thoughts: Bought the box for my wife for her to communicate with her family overseas. Straight out of the box she was able to do an 1-1/2 Google Talk video session with them. She said it was "just like being there!". She's happy- I'm happy. :) Since buying it, I've installed another gig of RAM, and have ordered a quality Bluetooth dongle and a 9-cell battery. All the upgrades cost about $100 total, so it's still an inexpensive box especially considering that it will be one mean machine! Oh, another thought. When I opened the case to install the RAM (easy upgrade) I was surprised at the quality of the internal components and the careful workmanship that was evident. I've used MSI motherboards in the past and have been pleased. This is my first experience with one of their computers. I'm impressed.READ FULL REVIEW
