not the most reliable

  • Summary: i had this drive for about a year when one day it wouldn't power up. so it thought, d*mn, another failed drive. but i've had other drives fail on me by ezquest and lacie. i tried replugging it about 10 times thinking (or praying) it would start up but to no avail. i had it plugged in with through the firewire port and my friend mentioned that i should try to plug it in with the mini USB so it doesn't require as much power and...presto it started up!

  • Pros: It comes with a USB cable
  • Cons: They do not work. Period. Maybe you'll get a year out of it; then all your backup data will be gone.

"Hard Drive failed out of the box on first day"

jgoodburn1, CNET

  • Pros: Bought Seagate Freeagent Desk 1TB at Costco thinking this would be a great backup solution.
  • Cons: Poor product support! Cannot get phone support. Their online IM support people (or bots) seem to do nothing but provide dead-end links.

Drive disconnects (even when in use)

Green Freak, Amazon
7 December 2009
  • Summary: Long time Amazon buyer, first time review writer. I read the reviews on troubles with sleep mode, but since my MacBook Pro (running Snow Leopard) doesn't sleep (sleep mode is turned off so it can be backed up at night), I thought it wouldn't be a problem. Unfortunately, the drive has three times disconnected unexpectedly on me (twice when it was idle, and once when I was using iMovie to capture video).
