  • Incompatible with Dell machines
    Verified Purchase

    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
    Verified Purchase

    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.
