Short Life 7/29/2016 11:10:07 AM

Pros: -Worked fast and quiet in the first year.

Cons: - Then it died a few months before the warranty was due. I sent for warranty and I received an ugly refurbished drive with major signs of scratch and dent all over it. That one died after the warranty period and reminded me to write a review here.

Overall Review: - Not recommended at all.

Failed right after warranty 6/10/2016 12:47:20 PM

Pros: Easy to install

Cons: Undependable. It seems that Seagate quality went down the tube after Seagate move/outsource production to China. Most of my older Seagate Free Agent drives are still working fine.

MTBF is meaningless now.

Great product 6/7/2016 8:57:34 AM

Pros: Fast, reliable.
Still zero problems after 3 years.
Can be used to power any old 3.5 drive, it just won't be pretty, and has to lay on its side. Really useful to recover data from dead computers.

Cons: None

Pure Junk 4/14/2016 6:48:58 AM

Pros: None

Cons: Bought in July of 2013 it lasted about 1.5 years and then died and was replaced by Seagate in Dec 2014. It died again in March 2016. The warranty is 2 years so I am stuck with a dead drive. What a piece of garbage this drive has been.
