Cheap external drive, cheap results

Summary: At the time of purchase this was a good price 2TB external hard drive that I have been using as a backup hard drive, however I have never putted through any kind of abuse nor I move it around a lot (from my closet to the desk is the only path) but it's already a buggy disk.
Summary: I have owned this product since September 2012. I really like the fact that it automatically back-up my files the moment I add them to my computer, it had already help me recuperate some files.
Read the warranty information before you buy from Outlet PC

Summary: This hard drive just failed, and Seagate says the 2 year warranty expired even though I bought it less than two years ago. There is an exception for some Amazon sellers to the standard warranty period. I contacted Outlet PC and they said tough luck. Not buying from this seller again.
SeaGate FreeAgent Goflex Desk 2TB Firewire 800 USB

Summary: I needed a FireWire 800 Hard drive to back up my computer. It is now backed up. I liked the ability to use different SeaGate Hard drives on the FireWire 800 base. Beware, not all Seagate Hard Drives use bases.
Summary: This is my third drive from them and the second to die just days out of warranty. Absolutely finished. I made the mistake of getting one last one, but my next one - already on order - is a WD. Worst drives ever!
Summary: This is my second purchase of the FreeAgent GoFlex drives. I had a 3TB and a 2TB. The 2TB model contained a ST2000DM01 hard drive, but the version I had contained the 3 x 0.67 TB platters, instead of the better version which has 2 x 1 TB platters. Both drives died in 2 years.
Worked on Windows 7 and Windows 8 but suddenly stopped working/not recognised

Summary: I was very happy with this external drive that was used for my large media files when one day it just stopped being recognized. The drive green light comes on, the disk spins, there are no warning beeps during POST nor clicking noises after power-on.
dont buy if unless you can spend big money on a brick.

Summary: This thing died just 2 months later, i tried to get the warranty to work but Seagate asks you to pay for the shipping of the drive to their repair center, no data could be recovered and it ended up begin a waste of money.
Summary: There are two types of Seagate Drives, Those that fail and those that haven't failed yet. I happen to have one of each. I purchased a set of these on Feb. 15, 2012. One drive was used for movies, music and TV shows. The other was for photos for my photography business.
