Summary: I purchased two of these units on 5/20/2009 from Staples to use as alternatiing backups for my desktop computer. Staples had a flyer out with a really good price ($89.90 EA + Tax). Both units had a 5 year limited warranty, which was an important selling feature to me. I kept one unit plugged into the computer and the other one I would plug in only when I wanted to run backup to it. They both worked fine until about 4 days ago.
Summary: Based on the reviews from other consumers, I purchased it for my backups and it has been nothing but ease when I transferred all my backups to this drive. Reliable and easy to use. Highly recommended. I'm a Mac user.
Summary: We use these drives to back up our servers. These drives run for many hours a day in our server room. We have 8 of the 500 GB drives and 8 of the 1 TB drives. The 500 GB drives have been in service for several years. Prior to the Segate drives we had several USB-attached drives of other brands that failed under the heavy use. We have had no failures with the Segate drives.
Summary: I loved the way it looked and installation was very easy. It worked well the few times I used it (as a backup). I bought it July 2008 and only used it to back pictures and some other documents. This drive is noisy (when it worked!), vibrates and after minimal use last week it stopped working all together. My husband's Seagate free agent go also broke after 3 months of barely use.
Summary: Got a brand new from E Bay, it's a great deal and works perfect, compare to my old WD external hard drive, this one runs much faster and smooth. Absolutely my best storage with my nedia center PC.
Summary: It's a hard drive with alot of space to use up. I do amateur photography so I've always need alot of memory and this definitely provides. When you want memory storage for long term, look to Seagate.
Summary: I have this drive for about nine months now without any problems. It's pretty fast, and I normally get transfer rates of about 20-25 megabytes per second for both read and write. It's very quiet as it has no fan and the drive runs cool. The vertical stand helps save alot of desk space and it is remarkably sturdy. I read reviews about it falling over, and I can say that I have not had any of those problems at all.
