Nothing good to say. 11/24/2012 6:42:15 AM

Pros: Easy to hookup, USB 2.0 speeds were decent.

Cons: This drive was dead within 2 months of easy use. My wife lost some important photos and other data in this drive. Seagate wanted $75 to "recover" the data from this drive. Will not own a Seagate drive again.

Overall Review: I have no idea why this drive failed. I have a 250GB Iomega drive that is almost 6 years old that I will continue to trust.

Comments: People have mentioned the short cable being an issue. Personally I think it's just right if you're setting the drive on top of your case or using it portably with a laptop or something.

Very disappointed 10/19/2011 1:38:55 PM

Pros: Right now, none that I can think of...

Cons: It totally DIED on me! I had stored photographs, music and tons of personal data on this... luckily, only as a back up in case my computer crashed. Who knew this would die? One day I hooked it up to my computer to back up some information and I started getting weird messages on my screen that I had to download software that I had never downloaded before. My computer didn't recognize that the drive was plugged in. I tried several different cables, hoping it was a cable issue... nope. I know it had power because the green power light was flickering like crazy. I even brought it to one of the IT guys at my work. He couldn't figure what was wrong with it either. So, now I have a $70 paperweight on my desk... VERY DISAPPOINTED!!

Failed During Backup 10/11/2011 6:42:16 PM

Pros: Worked great during normal. I had tons of music and movies stored on it and used it to periodically backup my regular data. Nice looking.

Cons: When my computer's internal hard drive showed signs of failing one day, I freaked out and decided to backup my data to this external drive. I usually did this by copying files directly from my internal drive, but this time I tried using the Windows Backup feature in Control Panel. The backup stalled at about 10%. After that, the drive either was not recognized by the computer or would not allow me to access the data on it. Only at one point could I normally access the data, during which I copied everything to a friend's other external drive.

Overall Review: I'm not sure who is at fault here - Microsoft or Seagate. But since I got it from a big box retailer and the warranty is expired, I have no chance of getting a refund. :(
