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 .
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!)

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. …
Summary: Disassembled the shell to access the drive to test it. Yep, it suffered from the "click of death".

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 ...
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.
