Pros: I have 2 of these drives a 750 and a 500 and within the first 6 months the 750 died and the 500 started to click on me. Boxed and shipped both in for replacement (great warranty on paper), waited a few weeks and got replacements, yet the 750 they sent died 2 months later, and the 500 is starting to click loud again :(
Not even worth the $$ & hassle to box and ship them back again - wait for weeks to get them replaced with more refurb drives that are most likely going to just fail again like the last set they sent.
First and last try on seagates for me, back to WD...
Cons: Both drives died within 6 months, $$ to ship back for replacement, both refurbs died AGAIN within shor time despite a large cool antec 900 case with plenty of cooling and airflow.
Overall Review: Might just be a bad model line in the seagate family but for me I wouldn't trust another one in my computer.
Pros: I have a large collection of my dvds that were converted to audio and video folders with dvdfab (created as MOVIE ONLY) to rid them of the annoying menus and trailers, that are now 3-5 vob files in a video folder under the titles name stored on my external storage drive.
Will this device let me view those vob files back thru the tv as a group (so i don't have to convert, rename or select each one individually)?
Just like to find something like this that will play all those "movie only" video files of vob files, if so this will be my late christmas gift to myself :)
Overall Review: Hoping this will do what I want it to do for me.
