The product didn't work

Amit Prakash Kulkarni, Amazon
22 March 2014
  • Summary: i really liked the the features of the product, unfortunately when it arrived it was compatible with my computers (both windows and mac). They couldn't detect the drive hence couldn't use it to its full potential. Had to return the product .

For storage, I opt Seagate every time

Deborah M. Piroch, Amazon

  • Summary: Ok, first you should know that I love Seagate. Love them. This mini-USB 2 has been a lifesaver size-wise in carrying around video. And flashy, too. ;) About the size of my palm. (And for those of you who don't know, they also make a hard drive formulated to work like Time Machine!)

Eventually Died

Deliverance, Amazon

  • Summary: I owned one of these for a couple years and it worked as expected. Then one day it started beeping and it died. I still have external drives for years ago that are still working. This product should have lasted longer.

  • Summary: Love this very compact portable disk drive. Great drive for use in the Seagate Theater + media player. I have bought about 15 of these drives and they have all been very reliable.

Seagate 500gb 2.5 external Drive

Nivekjs78, Mwave.com
8 December 2011
  • Summary: Great product for the price and with dual usb connections I get 28-40 mbs xfer speeds.
  • Pros: Solid product. Plenty of space on the go. Came with dock with 2 usb connectors.
  • Cons: Light can be annoying, but can be turned off. For some reason my pc always wants to check it for errors, but this is probably due to it use in the seagate media player.

Tough little drive

Kristofer B., Newegg
14 November 2011
  • Pros: More space than you should need in a backup Tough metal exterior Some can call it stylish only takes up 1 USB port Short cable(some may say it is a con) but perfect for a laptop
  • Cons: Not sure if it is a con but it only requires 1 usb port which means it isn't really "powered" so maybe it would run faster with two like my other drive?

Seagate FreeAgent Go 500GB

  • Excerpt: I work with large files and documentations and I travel a lot which requires me to seek the services of an external hard drive. So last month I headed to SM CyberZone in North EDSA and shop for the best brand of hard drive the stores could offer me. …

Not Worth It

Anonymous, Newegg
27 June 2011
  • Summary: Disassembled the shell to access the drive to test it. Yep, it suffered from the "click of death". Opening the case probably voided the 5 year warranty on the product, but how else does one access the drive to test it in another machine, just to be sure it's the drive and not the enclosure?
  • Pros: Very small size. Very quiet.
  • Cons: Died within a year of purchase. Lost all of the data while attached to a laptop while attempting to recover this backup data. Unfortunately this drive was the backup of a system that had crashed previously. So there was no way to recover anything. Infamous Seagate "click of death" issue. What is ...

Avoid this product.

Geekyone, Amazon

  • Summary: Im very dissapointed with seagate. The hard drive works for a couple of months before you realize your data is corrupt. This unit has a really big bug in the firmaware, maybe in the hard disk itself inside the slim enclosure.
