This drive at first would not install until I restarted my machine 4 times then it finally was recognized. I installed the software but during the install the connection kept going down. I had to "wiggle" the cable multiple times to get the light to show active and even then it would lose connection. Needless to say I returned the "POS"

This is similar to other portable HDD. Would have given it 5 starts if color would have been black. Blue is not an ideal color for a HDD but can compromise for that price. Now lets see if this HDD stands the test of time

A Competitive and Portable Drive,

by Arti on 7/26/2011

I purchased this external hard drive to use for this upcoming fall term at college. The hard drive is light weight and very portable, being only slightly larger than the Western Digital Passport. Having the option to use a USB 3.0 cable is nice, because my desktop has USB 3.0 ports on the front of it. Unfortunately that is the only computer I have that does. Though, having this option does help with keeping the hard drive up-to-date since USB 3.0 will be more widely available in the coming years. The drive works flawlessly with my PC and I am hoping I will be able to report the same for Mac OSX once my MacBook Pro arrives. I do not recommend using the product as a fixed external hard drive. It is best used as a plug and go drive for people, like myself, have too many files and programs to keep on a flash drive. For the price of the external hard drive you receive an exceptional amount of storage space and a well-built product. The hard drive is ultra-portable and can easily be carried in just about anything. The glossy finish on the hard drive is a fingerprint magnet, but that is nothing that can't be fixed with a cleaning cloth. From a distance, the finish looks great. This is my first Seagate external hard drive. Over the past years I have only used Western Digital drives. Hopefully this drive will continue to meet my expectations on what plug and go drive should do. Read More
