Summary: Worked fine as a backup drive until I plugged it in one day and it did not work. It had been less than 48 hours since I had plugged it in prior and it was not dropped or moved. But lo and behold, it just stopped working.
Summary: Seagate used to be considered among the most reliable hard drives but I probably won't buy any in the future. This unit failed within 16 months of purchase and almost cost me the loss of 10,000+ photographs (I'm a professional photographer).
Failed after a year and a half -- my second Seagate drive to fail in a year

Summary: After 17 months it stopped working. This was a backup drive. Fortunately I have other backups on and offsite. Also, it crashed my iMac when I tried to connect it again. If it hadn't been under warranty I'd buy a different manufacturer's drive.
Summary: We've been using the drive for over a year and it works great. Its fast, quiet and has plenty of room. It's a good solution for large media files and videos. We use this as a home external and it wouldn't be our first choice for a mobile/travel drive.
