I really like this drive. Love the fact you don't have to plug it into the wall, transfer speed is fast, size makes it easy to put in my laptop bag and carry with. The only problem I had, was I used the drive to backup a Lacie drive that is probably 5 years old. The Lacie drive allowed or distinguished 2 files in the same folder with a name like "track_01.mp3" and "Track_01.MP3" this drive would not allow 2 files with same name to be in the same folder if the only difference was capitalization of some of the file name characters. Unfortunately, I had quite a few such files (seems weird, but I did) - thus on a mass transfer, it kept stopping and I had to start over when it hit a folder with 2 files like that. I can't really hold that against Seagate though, almost more odd that the Lacie allowed it to begin with. Other than that, this drive is pretty slick.

-ESigns quote

I got it for $145 during the Christmas sale. So excellent price. Actually less than $1/GB. Quick shipping as well. It is easy to use and very slim. Does NOT need an external power supply. No problems in recognizing the drive. I use Windows Vista. Transfer speed on USB2.0 is decent. I transferred about 275Gb of data from other hard disk to this one in about 3 hours. I've had experience with even longer times before. I am sure USB3.0 will be faster.

dont take the risk of losing your valued memories

Unreliable drive. Second one that fail while I really take care of it (unplugging via windows first, then manually,etc...) Whole drive failed and it is internal problems, because none of the seagate diagnostic tools work. Rude warranty department, they will find all reasons so they won't replace your drive. 2nd drive from this brand that fail beacuse of cheap material used. Would go with another brand. Dont risk of losing all your pictures.
