Solid Performance failed after one year

Jay "ATPRN", Amazon
21 June 2012
  • Summary: AVOID this Company! Failed after one year. Email customer support is fast. Expect to spend hours waiting for customer service on the phone with extremely annoying taped messages played for your wait. Unit is pretty fast. Easy to format to full 2TB capacity with windows 7.

Buyer beware (especially Mac users)

Greyman, Amazon
6 February 2012
  • Summary: I bought two for backing up my computer. The first one simply stopped working -- within two days! The second worked but had a firmware glitch that I later found documented on different forums: for the latest Mac Os the hard drive spins down to save power (good) but then does not spin back up (very...

Unreliable

bluemax, Amazon
23 January 2012
  • Summary: I am having a lot of trouble using this drive to backup to thru timemachine for the mac. I can get it to work after force ejecting the drive, deleting a pref then turning off time machine, then restarting time machine... Also had issue with the drive simply turning off...? What's up with that?

Drive Failed After 3 months use

Wendy Blankenship, Amazon
22 October 2011
  • Summary: Although the drive was purchased in March; we've only been using it for the last three months. Last week the drive failed and we've lost all of the data that was on it. The drive never suffered any 'trauma'; was kept in the same place, same position; just failed.

Not durable; doesn't hold up to frequent use

Matt, Amazon
23 September 2011
  • Summary: I've been using one of these for almost a year and a half now, and now the drive is slowly starting to fail: it frequently disconnects from my laptop and I have to power-cycle it, and certain files take absolutely forever to read/copy (probably because they're on areas of the disk that the drive is...

Very Disappointed - drive failed

Jimmy Row, Amazon
15 January 2011
  • Summary: I'm writing this review because my drive just failed after 10 months. Luckily, after about 3 days of arduous work, I was able to recover most of what I lost, but the drive is useless. I don't trust it. Delayed write failed error, then trouble accessing my files (over 500 gb).
