Wish I had read ALL the reviews before I purchased...

Pros: Don't know yet, still waiting for it.

Cons: Same as above...

Other Thoughts: When I order this HD, the ratings were higher than I see now as far as the over-all rating goes.

After reading the reviews and realizing that at least 45% are not good, I am wishing I had not ordered this.]]

I will post again when I receive the drive and also if/when it fails. I have no doubt that at least some of the 5 star reviews are "salted" reviews.

The last two were great

Pros: Cost; size; capacity; works on USB hub

Cons: Not designed to be partitioned so you have to be careful

Other Thoughts: I have one I have partitioned to backup my wife's computer. Works great.
I have another for photos and iTunes on my computer.
Both are small enough to take with us when we travel.

I bought these to use one for a Time Machine on my computer and to backup BOOTCAMP.
The other is a spare.

10/13/17: The previous version required too much power to work on my USB hub. This one works fine.

Nice, but...

Pros: Large storage capacity.

Cons: This large capacity 2.5" hard drive potentially can get too warm when copying large amounts of data, roughly more than a terabyte or two at a time. I started to notice that the data transfer rate greatly slowed down after continuously backing up a bit over 2 terabytes of data, or after the backup had been running for nearly two hours. Fortunately, the drive has built-in thermal protection which prevented the hard drive from exceeding its operating temperature design specs, yet which greatly slowed down the data transfer rate. Yet once I got my nearly 3GB of data backed up, incremental backups haven't been a problem since incremental backups are accomplished in much shorter time. I must note that I had my Windows 7 computer's USB3 speed totally maxed out, such that I am sure that I most likely exceeded any of Seagate's "normal" testing procedures. I was transferring data at roughly 3 to 4 times the data rate for Windows 7's default settings for removable hard drives.

Other Thoughts: Would I recommend this portable hard drive? Yes, since I literally pushed it to well beyond normal and default USB3 data transfer rates for a removable external hard drive, and while it eventually and greatly slowed down once it got too warm, it did not fail.
