This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus Slim 1TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive STDR1000102 Blue
Pros: Durable drive. Worked great till I dropped it. Customer serv great got it working again somehow when I let them tinker with it through remote computer assistance. Could not get it to do anything other than lock up windows myself. I'll never trust it again though.
Cons: More slippery than a wet bar of soap.
Other Thoughts: Irks me the way they made the case with smooth polished metal on one side and relatively rough plastic on the other. The plastic sends this message to your brain it's not slippery when it actually is. Recommend putting one or 2 windings of electrical tape around it so you don't lose your data. 1tb is a lot to lose!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio Basics 3.0 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive HDTB110XK3BA Black
Pros: It worked fine for 4 months
Cons: Windows couldn't complete a scan. customer service likes to jack people around, ask for the same info over and over, drop calls, pretend to be stupid, refuse to let you speak to a supervisor but constantly put you on hold so they can get instruction from one. Tell you to call back in a week hoping you will just give up. Every person I talked to after asking for all kinds of info they should have already had just told me in the end they need a tracking number. Made at least 10 calls combined time in excess of 4hrs, shipped the package to them twice have nothing to show for it. Not even the defective drive. They assume no responsibility without tracking number.
Other Thoughts: They returned the defective drive back to me because I didn't include a receipt even after I called them and they said they didn't need it. (I called they said they know who bought it where and when by ssn) I sent it back to them a second time and regardless of the fact there was a bar code with an rma number that identifies it say they "have no record of it". Insisting on a tracking number which I didn't opt for. Which shouldn't be necessary unless the recipient is untrustworthy and willing to lie in order to welch out of their obligation.READ FULL REVIEW
