Did the drive last as long as it should?

Summary: Bought this drive in September of 2012 for home network storage and automated backup of 2 computers. It worked pretty well for backup. The Seagate dashboard software sometimes needed to be refreshed several times before it could find the drive on the network.
Summary: This is a reasonable product for what id does. It is a bit slow on the network. I uninstalled the software it came with as it seemed to cause problems. The software is not needed. The on line browser interface is all that is needed to set defaults.
Summary: It works great at allowing me to play my music and audio books. Also allows me to read my ebooks on iPhone and iPad.. But it won't play any vid files in any format I've tried. iTunes purchases, included. It will stream them inside my house.. But I bought it to allow me to access films on HotSpots..
Summary: After experiencing both Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex devices and WD My Book and My Book Live devices, and evaluating the management of both NAS product lines, I lean strongly towards the WD line than I do the Seagate line.
Summary: This Network Attached Storage Device works as a 3TB hard drive connected to a network. As a media server it has limited capabilities due to the fact that the media server is not configurable without extensive Linux knowledge.
Promising product, but yet-to-deliver as advertised

Summary: I have had this product (Seagate GoFlex Home 3TB Ext. HardDrive STAM400)for a week and it's been a frustrating experience trying to make the device perform as advertised. PROS 1) Easy to assemble the pieces and connect to wireless network.
Summary: Seems like a great idea to keep files in a central location. My WIN 7 64 Premium machine was the only computer out of 5 that would show the Seagate in Network devices. The others are mostly WIN XP sp3 and I have to use Windows Explorer to find the GoFlex.
Summary: I bought this for back up and for storing security video. I had to return it because I could not get it to stay connected to the router. The mounted disk would disappear frequently and the security video would not be recorded as a result. I ruled out the router as being the cause.
Summary: The hardware seems fine so far. The base is heavy enough that the product does not tip over easily. It is more quiet than my computer so I don't hear the GoFlex when my computer is on. When my computer is off, the GoFlex makes a faint whooshing sound which does not bother me.
