Pros: there are none of note, at least for this mac user. that half-star rating should be actually be zero. pity we can't award "minus stars"...
Cons: this drive is very poorly designed for mac use; an accidental disconnect sans eject ruins it. repairing it is nearly impossible. other reviews confirm it has memory issues (can a drive have Alzheimer's?). it is, in general, a rather clueless waste.
Summary: Seagate 500g unit is easy to install, when you use Seagate Manager software to back up and store files. I had a Seagate 160g, but needed a larger unit. It worked for over two years. It's only four days and so far so good 500g hard drive is working great.
Pros: Attractive Design, Compact, Easy To Setup, Easy to use, High Capacity, Quiet
Pros: I guess the multiple connectors would be counted as a pro. 1.5 terrabyte.
Cons: What happened to 5 yr warrantys! Bad descision on someones part at Seagate Corporate. This was always a easy sale to my customers when I used to be able to say 5 yr warranty, now I have to talk them out of Western Digitals that sell cheaper. Way slow tra
