"Not a Bot of Trouble!"

  • Pros: Large capacity. Good price. Pretty fast.
  • Cons: Only cons don't really reflect on every day usage. Can't turn the unit off. Only in you power down your computer does the unit go to sleep. Slow to start up when you address the unit.

  • Summary: The drive works well so far, efficient and relatively quiet. Comes with poor quality backup software pre-loaded which can be removed by reformatting.

Does the job

Paul Z, J&R

  • Summary: This hard drive does the job well. It's a bit slower, but if speed is your thing, get a firewire transfer drive, not a USB. It takes care of what I need done, with a lot of space! Great price too...
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Compact, Easy To Setup, Easy to use, High Capacity, Quiet
  • Cons: No Power Switch, Slow

Meets expectations; satisfied

Regular user, J&R
16 July 2009
  • Summary: I use this as general backup for files, pictures and music. Great storage. Very compact size. Completely meets my needs. Little odd not to have an on/off button; but I assume its sleep mode feature covers that. J&R very price competitive on price [...] Great.
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Compact, Easy To Setup, Easy to use, High Capacity, Quiet
  • Cons: No Power Switch

Backs up with ease

  • Summary: Use this for backing up all my machines. The software it comes with works well enough. I'd prefer not to have to power separately but works well enough.

does what is says, also on mac

Smugfrog "Smugfrog", Amazon

  • Summary: How much can you say about a hard drive? Some work, some fail. And some probably fail the moment after you leave a review... IT-support at my last job staked their lives on Seagate so I've stuck with them and so far, they've kept ticking along (this is my fifth, all are still happy). Critically, for mac users, it seemed worth noting that Time Machine runs happily from a Macbook Pro via an Airport Extreme. You have to reformat but it's fairly easy. Then, do nothing.
