Summary: My unit started to die before warranty ended. SMART test failed. Seagate sent me the replacement (a newer model btw, not this one). The replacement drive worked for half-year then started to die too. The data became corrupted. When I was copying the data, it did not give an error.
Summary: I can't even get the stupid thing to show on my desktop or in my computer anywhere! Any online tech support I can find to read has instructions that prompt me from when I find the item in my control panel--ummm it doesn't show up.
Summary: Just bought this thing - plugged it in, installed the software for mac, rebooted my computer and it acts as if nothing was done. I suggest save yourself the sometime and get something else. Will be returning this expensive brick tomorrow.
Summary: I have had this drive for somewhere between a year or two. This drive never gave any trouble and worked properly the whole time. One day I went to plug it into my computer and it refuses to be recognized. It will no longer turn on.
