Really disappointing durability

  • Summary: I bought this in Feb., 2010 for use with my Mac. It lasted till December, less than a year, when it began to clatter and heat up and was a total failure. Yes, it was easy to install and use while it lasted, but clearly useless after breaking. Disappointing given Seagate's reputation.

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!

Transferring rate is Very slow.
