Waste of money

  • Summary: I had a ton of movies, and music saved on this thing, and in 1 year it craped out on me, I lost it all, now I have to re rip all my stuff. Luckily I still have the discs, but if I didn't I would have lost it all. So all in all this is a huge waste of money.

Zero For Two

  • Summary: This is the second Seagate external drive that I've bought. The first was a Seagate 1TB that died prematurely (but after the warranty expired), without any warning. I tried for days to get my data off of the drive to no avail. Several computers could not find the drive, let alone allow me to move anything off of it. I replaced that Seagate with a Western Digital that I have not had any problems with whatsoever. I was a novice as far as backing up goes.

Terribly Disappointed

Stephen Cocconi, Amazon
29 August 2012
  • Summary: Generally, I don't bother with reviews up or down. But in this case, 9 months after purchasing the Seagate FreeAgent 2 TB device and having to baby it continually, now that I really need it to backup my data so I can reinstall OS, Zilch! Seagate once was a well regarded name in hard drive products. And now that they own Maxtor as well, its seems the market is closing down quality and replacing it with high profit crap.

Format IT!

  • Summary: Don't use the crap software that they put on ANY of these hard drives or flash drives, they are a joke. Use the old copy/cut and paste routine, or drag and drop and everything will be just fine. I have the 2 TB version and it's identical to this. Had it for nearly a year with no issues, i also have a Western Digital that i've had for 2 years, which has given me LOTS of trouble, but is still kicking.

MEGA SPACE SAVER

Bravo-Golf, Amazon
6 October 2011
  • Summary: I got this Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex external because my Iomega was running out of space and I needed a hard drive that was interchangeable between my MacBook Pro and PC. This drive not only do that but also allowed me to setup dedicated storage for to backup my MacBook Pro Time Machine. I think I'm going to get another Seagate GoFlex portable for my travel and go around drive.

Buy it for the storage, not the software.

some guy, Amazon

  • Summary: I received it and it works fine. The included backup software however completely crippled my pc. My desktop is no slouch either, 4g ram, core 2 duo cpu etc...As soon as the software installed I noticed a huge drop in performance, to the point of almost being unusable. I understand that backing up a 1.5tb drive is a long process, but even when I had the drive unplugged the software was still eating at my cpu usage. Still, slowing down basic functions.

Ok, except for the software.

Lawrence, Amazon
6 August 2011
  • Summary: This seems a fine piece of gear, but the Backup Software with it is some of the most intrusive,consumer unfriendly/demanding I've ever seen. It kept asking me to add services I didn't want and eventually I just wiped the drive and reformatted. I understand the need to find ways to sell your ancilliary products and software, but how many times do I have to refuse before you (and your software) get the point. Please..
