  • Incompatible with Dell machines

    It turns out this drive is incompatible with Dell machines. It will work for a few minutes, but, when the drive spins down into low power mode, it will not wake up again (unless you disconnect/reconnect it). I went many rounds with Seagate support on two different drives. Turns out that they have a patch for Win7(to disable the spin down) but not for Win8.

  • Drive died exactly one year after I installed it

    I had another Seagate external drive that lasted two years before it started throwing errors and became unusable. This one did the same thing exactly 13 months after I received it. I thought the first time it was just bad luck - drives do fail. But two in a row, not so much. I'm really disappointed and inconvenienced because I had a lot of data stored on this drive that's lost.

  • Excellent product

    Very easy to use, even for me . . . the non computer user. I bought this to save the files on my mom's computer. My mom used to do electronic scrap booking. She had over 81,000 files on her computer. That amount of files barely put a dent in the amount of space on this hard drive. Great purchase.

  • Small, quiet with 3T capacity

    Small, quiet (many are not!), sleek device with a large capacity. Let's face it, all these things fail eventually. Irreplaceable files need to be stored on more than one device. This one is no bigger than my first, which only held 500MB. Lies flat on non-skid rubber feet - ready for stacking another one. Best price I've seen for 3T of storage. I have an older, 1T (same brand) that cost almost as much. Quick transfer speed, but that probably has more to do with the new computer than the external hard drive itself. "Plug and play" - easy and straight forward to use. Comes well packaged (double boxed) with all necessary plugs/cables. Recommended.
