Not The Drive In The Photo

Cal M, Argos
8 January 2015
  • Excerpt: Having purchased several of these drives in the past and being very happy with them, when i needed some more i decided to buy some more, however the picture is not the drive you actually receive, i purchased 4 drives over the christmas period 2 drives to use and 2 to back up, the drives are of a different design but the issue is with the part where the thin usb 3 cable goes into the drive, the cable keeps dropping out. Will not buy again.

Failed Drive

AJ W., Amazon
8 July 2014
  • Summary: Drive failed after 4 months. Good thing I had a backup of this backup drive. I'll be sticking with WD from now as I've never had a WD drive fail even after 3 years of server use.

Appear's ok but . . .

  • Summary: I bought this one on January 2014 but use only for 20 days in total during this 6 moths time with my MacBook Pro. Now the drive has very big problem and lost partition, files, everything. I need to buy many application to repair the disk and recover the files including seagate application. I fall this one because of price. I also bought firewire 800 accessories to use with this hard drive. I did not get what I paid for.

Seagate 3TB Backup plus external hard drive

Robert S, Amazon
28 March 2014
  • Summary: It does not perform anywhere near to expectations. When backing-up its speed is hardly any faster than my previous usb2 version and yes I am using a new USB3 slot with the usb cable supplied by Seagate. When I put the problem to Seagate they said it wasn't their product, it must be something to do with my computer, I should try it on another computer. Not very helpful.

Large storage but disappointed by disc errors

A. Jones, Amazon
10 March 2014
  • Summary: Seems simple to operate but the backups take up 3x more space than the total space occupied on my internal hard drive! Continually getting error messages of file problems. Don't buy.

Great drive...when it works

Stuart Kelly, Amazon
10 February 2014
  • Summary: This is a fantastic drive with great read/write speeds, however, it disconnects every couple of hours or so. I've read online and I'm not the only person with this problem. I've done all kinds of suggestions, changing settings, changing the cable, etc. Nothing worked. I've already filled the drive with more things than I can back up to other places so I cannot return the drive. Disappointed.

Not an ideal drive for a Mac

Steven Docker, Amazon
8 February 2014
  • Summary: Purchased this for an IMac (with a 1TB internal drive) that already has an Apple 2TB time capsule and a Hitachi 1TB G-Drive connected to it. First point is that it is noisy - the single Seagate drive is noisier than the other three drives combined. Second point is that as a drive it doesn't work out of the box, or at least it didn't for me.
