The product didn't work

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: 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: 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.
Summary: Ok..so I bought a refurbished 250 gb Seagate portable hard drive. It arrived quickly but it turned out to be a defective piece. I returned it and asked for a replacement. Guess what??? The replacement that arrived was also defective. I had to return both and get a refund.
Summary: As the title says, piece of junk. Worked just long enough to outlive the 30 day return policy. Quickly became unreliable in recording data, and soon after didn't work at all. Don't waste your money.
Goes to sleep/hangs. Changed my settings still hangs

Summary: I'm frusterated with this product. It works awesome sometimes and then other times it gets fussy and seems to hang/go to sleep while being accessed. Mainly used to play music off of continually and save audio files from garage band too. It's a shame. Great package. Maybe I got a dud.
Summary: Schönes Gehäuse aber die Festplatte war nach einem Jahr kaputt. Da hilft mir die Garantie auch nichts, wenn alle Daten irreperabel dahin sind. Datenwiederherstellung äußerst aufwendig, da die mechanik in der Festplatte ohne Fremdeinwirkung kaputt ging.
Summary: Nach gerade einmal 9 Monaten ist die Platte schon defekt. Sie knackt nur noch beim anschließen und schaltet sich dann einfach ab. Vorher hatte der USB Anschluss schon einen Wackelkontakt. Im Vergleich zu meinen Platten von WD qualitativ echt ein Flop.
Summary: Ich kann diese Platte nicht empfehlen. Ich habe 2 davon und diese immer sorgsam behandelt. Beide sind nun voller Daten, werden von meinem Rechner (MacBook Pro, late 2008) nicht mehr erkannt und geben seltsame Geräusche von sich!
