Failed after one year.

  • 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). I've also had three other Seagate drives fail or falter on me. That's a horrible track record. I'm switching to Western Digital and keeping my fingers crossed.

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. OTOH, I've also had drives from other companies fail in under two years.

Works great

  • 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.

Dead: Lasted less than two years

Roger Striffler, Amazon

  • Summary: When I first got this drive, I was very pleased. It's an attractive drive, and feels solidly built. I hooked it up to my iMac via firewire, and partitioned it into two drives - one to hold my iTunes library, and one for use as a time machine backup. Setup was easy, and the drive seemed plenty fast, and very quiet. It worked very well for about a year. Then the trouble started. I started getting messages from iTunes that the library could not be found.

Too many problems ...

Steffan Piper, Amazon
27 April 2014
  • Summary: I owned this device for well over a year before I could use it due to compatibility issues. I had purchased several cables trying to get this to connect to my Mac for sometime and even invested in the alternate docking bay which was supposed to make it compatible with other versions of the OS. Nope. Wouldn't connect. Nothing but problems. Later when I hooked it up to a new machine … nothing. The thing was a ghost from jump and I never realized it.
