Just adding to the chorus of 1s

Joso3, Amazon

  • Summary: Once you get it working, FGS, don't touch it! The connections are so wobbly that you never know if you're going to get a power light or a message to re-format the drive, or just a low hum. Seagate is no help and the USB cable is non-standard. If you're stuck with one (like I am) just don't use it for anything you can't afford to do without. Junk. UPDATE: 2014-04-02 (not an April fools joke) Seagate extended the warranty and is shipping a new drive. Thanks Seagate.

Has limped along ever since purchase

CnE, Amazon
23 January 2014
  • Summary: I can't say that I haven't used the drive since it is over 2 years since purchase, but I expected a better product and it ultimately failed. I got a cyclic redundancy check error and now I'm trying chkdsk to recover data. Also, it never kept the network sharing properties I applied so I had to reset them after every system restart. Only used about 500GB of the 3TB. Might try another Seagate drive sometime but will pay more attention to the reviews.

Good for cheap storage, connectivity is flawed

Chris, Amazon
4 November 2013
  • Summary: I've had this for several years. The price was right for the amount of storage. I haven't had an issue with losing any files but the connectivity has been an issue. Sometimes I have to unplug it and plug it back in several times before it works. Some devices, like my LG TV or recovery software operating system will not recognize the device. For bulk storage on a windows computer, its been great but I don't really trust it because of the connectivity issues.

  • Summary: I used this drive for about 13 months with my iMAC 27" for time machine purpose. It has suddenly died, along with all my data. I ear a rithmic tick and click when the disk is connected; Snow Leopard recognize it but is unable to read and to formet the drivesays me the the drThis was my first (and probably) last experience with the Seagate brand. Immediately i buy 2 Western Digital external hard drives and both run very fine.
