  • Summary: Awful product. It tries to show you everything but feels to tell you how to backup your computer which is why you bought the product to begin with. What is now even worse it is taken over my computer every few is to let me quit the god awful program that it has installed. Do not buy this product.

  • Summary: This product has died as of March 2016. I bought this in late '12 as a back-up. Now, everything that should have been preserved is inaccessible. This is the 2nd Seagate drive we've purchased that died even though it lights and seems "alive."

Physically broken and has connection issues.

Peter Denny, Amazon
31 January 2016
  • Summary: I got this for my wife two years ago and it was finicky from the get-go. The hard drive has two sections kind of and the part the cord plugs into is really wiggly and it has connection issues, disconnecting and reconnecting if you even just lightly bump the desk it's sitting on.

Biggest waste of money

A Almon, Amazon
21 September 2015
  • Summary: Biggest waste of money. The cord on this device is horrible and screwed up almost immediately. I had to rig it with electrical tape to even be able to continue using it. DON'T BUY UNLESS YOU WANT TO BE DISAPPOINTED

Has a 2-year warranty -- and neatly died after 2 years

La Becket, Amazon
21 July 2015
  • Summary: Lasted just past the period of warranty for me -- just 2 months after the warranty expired, the drive is completely dead. Definitely not to be trusted, and would not buy again -- I have a LaCie drive that's been working perfectly for over a DECADE, and a WD that's still going strong after 6 years.

it is only good for back up

vivian, Amazon
28 September 2014
  • Summary: I purchased it long time ago and just start to use it however I can only use it on Mac, it doesn't work when I install the software on my PC. So, basically, it is only good for back up. Do not worth the money. I hope I tried this earlier then I would find out earlier then I would return it.

Bryce Esch, Amazon
11 July 2014
  • Summary: The most expensive paperweight I've ever bought. Doesn't work properly with my Samsung Series 7 laptop, and have it plugged into a school computer right now, but can't access the drive. I definitely won't go with Seagate again.

  • Summary: Useless drive on the Mac with Thunderbolt connection, it keeps getting ejected randomly every few seconds. I wish I had checked the reviews online before ordering the drive as there are a LOT of complains about this particular drive on the Mac with Thunderbolt and supposedly Seagate has refused the...

  • Cons: It does NOT stay connected for more than 3 sec. with thunderbolt connection, it keeps going off-line and I get the "Disk Not Ejected Properly" error on a random basis.
