Started to get bad sector warning now.

Pros: Work as it suppose to when it is working.

Cons: Started to get bad sector warning now and backup failed. Hope I still can RMA it because it still have 3 months left before the warranty expired.

Very Pleased

Pros: It still works fine after nearly a year. Seagate has outpaced the other brand, I have had several of those go bad but not a Seagate in the last couple years.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: There are some reports out there done with a large test group by some company, saying the other brand is better. From my experience on a home/small server basis (30 to 60TB) I and my friends have experienced huge fail rates with the other brand in the last 3 years, we're talking 40 to 50% failed. We replaced all the server drives (about 30) with Seagates and haven't had any issues at all with them.

PERFECTION

Pros: In a word, this device is awesome. It is fast, quiet, and well designed. The price is excellent for massive amounts of storage.

Cons: There are no CONS to this device.

Other Thoughts: It is faster than I thought possible for an external hard drive. Very good device for a very reasonable price.

Where to start

Pros: Great Drive with Great Speeds and cheap.... see Cons

Cons: Had to RMA first drive received because it turned on and off every hour or so...
Got the RMA'd New Drive...... SAME PROBLEM. I just took it out of the case which voids my warranty of course and put it in my HTPC. Now it runs flawlessly. I don't know what's up with these new External Enclosures but they aren't good at all. I have 3 of these Drives (Last Years Model Cases) that have been running flawlessly for over a year now. But These new enclosures are just garbage.

Other Thoughts: Save yourself the trouble and just buy the bare drive. It's running great now inside my HTPC for 3 days without issue. I've run Disc Analyzer on it and it shows no bad sectors so it has to be something wrong with the enclosure itself. Seagate needs to look into this problem as These are great drives. Just sad I had to take the drive out of the enclosure for it to actually work Properly.

Seagate STCA2000100 2TB model

Pros: None

Other Thoughts: Don't bother buying

Nice product, works well, high storage capacity for the $$

Pros: Easy setup, USB 3 Speeds for data transfer and backup.

Cons: Must lay the drive on it's side or risk knocking over, with a chance of drive failure. Needs wider base or small foot attachment.

Other Thoughts: I will purchase it again, for the dependable and high capacity for the money.

Backup drive success

Pros: Does exactly what I wanted.
The drive connected to the computer without a problem, worked out of the box, the software for autobackups was installed without incident, the speed is very good/excellent for USB 2.0 (limitation of the laptop), and the backups are available immediately. It's also extremely quiet, to where you can just barely tell it's working if you hold it to your ear.

Cons: It didn't come with a free second drive.
Honestly, the only thing I can complain about is that there is no power indicator until you connect it to a computer. The little LED comes on immediately on connecting to the computer, even though it has an external power supply... the least they could have done is make a slow blink if it's not connected to let you know it's powered.

And that's all I can complain about; it's not really a complaint.

The gauge of how full the drive is is cheesy at best, but that's not what I bought if tor... but it appears to show how "full" the drive is by vertical LED strips - right now, it's practically empty, so it shows one.

Other Thoughts: I got this for my brother and sister-in-law after having to retrieve their data from the HDD and reinstall the OS ont he laptop after a failed update put Windows 7 into a boot loop we couldn't get it out of. It's so simple to set up, I could have just sent it to them without setting it up, and let them do it... and they've got almost ZERO technical skills. (Well; when it comes to things like this, anyway.)

I glanced through the guide that came with it after setting it up... and yeah; it was that easy. :)

This is a perfect solution for non-tech-savvy people to make backups. From what I see of it, you can use it on multiple machines, and each will get an ID matching the computer name as the backup location, meaning you can keep the separate machines' backups separated easily enough. The backup location is a hidden folder, too, so no accidentally blowing away the backups.
