29 May 2014
  • Summary: excellent for the price, great speeds but no power switch so the thing doesn't have to go on all the time its plugged in
  • Pros: looks nice, piano black, works every time. great speeds 50-100 MB/s priced at $99 is great
  • Cons: no power switch, some delay the first time I access the Hard Drive, then

Good Drive

Victor J., Newegg
19 April 2014
  • Summary: Good Drive.
  • Pros: This drive is surprisingly quite compared to my 2 fantom drives. I was skeptical about this drive, but it seems to be pulling about 114 Mb/s write and read. I would definitely buy another.
  • Cons: I haven't seen any cons with this drive in about a year.

Did exactly what I needed

Steve B., Newegg
17 February 2014
  • Summary: Used to migrate data from old drive to new ones. Worked perfectly. Now used to do backups, and found it also works smoothly with my Smart TV, so video files saved from PC to this one can be moved right to the TV for viewing.
  • Pros: Speed is impressive, quiet, perfect addition to my desktop.
  • Cons: Software is a little buggy if you use it to do your backup.

Seagate Backup Plus 2TB

Kenneth P., Newegg
10 February 2014
  • Summary: these drives seem to work reliably IF YOU PUT A SMALL FAN BLOWING DIRECTLY INTO THE BACK VENTS. look at the drive size when reading a review! you may notice that the really bad reviews are mostly for the 3 & 4tb models. why does NewEgg put reviews for other size drives with the 2tb models?
  • Pros: 2tb, capacity, price, reliability (see other thoughts)
  • Cons: poor ventilation, external cooling required. Seagate's idiotic proprietary cable connector. two of the three Seagate 2gb external drives that i own have this horrible connector. i have to pick up the drive and wiggle it around a while on two of them to get the plug to go in.

works as should hopefully for a long time

Jeffrey L., Newegg
6 January 2014
  • Pros: love the price per space [got it on sale] vs WD [which i love as well, but have been tight on money]. seek times are quicker than some WD externals I have. Haven't had any issues connecting to other computers or even mine [wd 4tb has had times when it cannot "ID" my usb external]
  • Cons: seagate externals tend to run a tad warm
