Summary: This is a high quality product for people who are particular about their data. The connectors are strong and well protected and the ability to open the fan grill to let air in it is very useful. Thank you Amazon!
Summary: I bought this drive to hook up to my game console, and it works beautifully! Matches my console and looks great with the rest of my entertainment center as well. It's also working well with my MacBook pro to share public folders Highly recommend!
Pros: Win 7 x64 seen full capacity when plugged in minus a few hundred megs. run pretty cool unless your transferring hundreds of gigs at a time , like I did then it warms a bit. It transfers smaller files very fast. Very happy with this drive. Love the Turbo copy where you can allocate part of your sy...
Cons: The included software disk is a little flaky, but got it to install what I wanted
Summary: If you are complaining that you cannot create a partition with the full capacity then you are trying to create an MBR partition. Do some research... Read the user guide, search MFG KB, use a search engine, or call MFG technical support.
Summary: I went to school for basic computer language and pc repair. When I see reviews like the ones I've read here. I can only wondered what goes on ur heads to post when your review does not make sense. If u want to see the whole drive use win7 x64 instead of win7 x86. You should know some basics.
Pros: it is a big drive. and fairly cheap.
Cons: out of stock could not order one of this suckers.
Summary: I have been a system builder for over 25 years and I repair my own systems and do the same for others at times. Please let me add some food for thought… To help YCU and others in this situation, the inability to format the drive above 2TB is a limitation of either the OS (i.e.
Pros: The reason you could only see 2TB in the drive is that it was formatted NTFS, which only supports partitions up to 2TB. The remaining 1.6 would have been left over to be formatted as a new partition. Only Windows Vista and above support GPT partitioning, which supports larger than 2TB volumes.
Cons: Please don't rate a product bad because of your ignorance.
Summary: Company I work for bought this for me. Might have been a fluke but I managed to access the rest of the storage space in the end. I confirmed it only has 1 3.5" hard drive. Lost eggs so people can look at the review in case they run into the same problem.
Pros: Plenty of storage. perfect for multimedia storage.
Cons: When I deleted the partition that came prebuilt, Windows disk manager treated the unallocated space as two separate drives. 2TB and 1.6TB (which is normal) for some reason I could only use the first 2TB of space. the other part wasn't accessable nor would it allow me to create new partitions... I...
Summary: So far a fantastic product. I purchased this because I was extremely displeased with a Seagate Goflex 3TB Harddrive, as after around 2 months of usage, it started emitting a clicking sound, and stopped working.
