Don't bother!

J. Carter, Amazon
19 March 2014
  • Summary: Some may like it, some may hate it. I lost two hard drives trying to use this. Plugged in good, working hard drives and suddenly they were completely dead as soon I plugged them into this device. Thought it might have been my fault when the first one died. Hung onto it too long before trying it with another drive. No way I can pull it out of the trash for even a partial refund now.

Worked for a short time then it crapped out!!!

Neil R., Amazon

  • Summary: I have used this product intermittently to work on video files on my Macbook Pro Quad, It worked ok but not without annoying issues. 1. It would disconnect the drive at the slightest movement of the cable. 2. It would disconnect the drive randomly(I have used different drives, Seagate Go-Flex ,Seagate 2.5HDD, OWC SSD and Toshiba 2.5) it didn't matter. It Randomly disconnects without movement of the set-up. 3. After a period of use, It Died..

  • Summary: I bought this hard drive just over a year ago and it inexplicably stopped working without warning. At first device Manager was saying that the driver did not install properly. after unplugging the HARD DRIVE AND TRYING TO RESTART IT ALL IT DOES IS SPIN UP FOR A FEW SECONDS AND THEN STOPS. THE INDICATOR LIGHT DOESN'T EVEN COME ON.

Worked great for 11 months -- treated it with UTMOST care

Karl Thorsson, Amazon
23 June 2013
  • Summary: This Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex 3 TB unit worked perfectly for 11 months -- it's planned obsolescence kicked in 11 months after using it for the first time. I treated this unit with the UTMOST care -- and it received little handling. This was the last Seagate product I bought -- will never buy Seagate again, and I cannot give my recommendation on this product. I lost all my data -- ALL OF IT.

didn't work - refursed return & told me it was damaged (it was brand new)

Michael C. Mcknelly, Amazon
13 May 2013
  • Summary: I opened it from the packaging, plugged it in, and it didn't work. I contacted the amazon seller, all they did was approve my return. I contact seagate directly & through their guided help, I was unable to correct or even determine what the problem was. My system was simply not recognizing the drive being there. I returned & paid for the UPS shipping myself (which I was supposed to be reimbursed for). And I get this reply: "Thank you for your patience.

  • Summary: I purchased this product with great expectations. It worked brilliantly for about a week. I copied 4 movies to it last night then shut everything down. Went on the laptop in the morning and hooked it up and got nothing. 100% dead. I checked power source multiple times and have done everything on the support forums. Thank god I purchased the two year warranty. Do NOT buy this product.....

Drive Failed after 9 months

coleopreacher "Cole", Amazon
23 February 2013
  • Summary: I purchased the drive hoping to use it with the Netgear WNDR3800 router as a NAS for Time Machine backups. It is not compatible with the WNDR3800 / ReadyShare so that didn't work. Rather than return the drive I opted to attach it directly to my mac Mini and use it solely for Time Machine backups. My backup never consumed more than 800GB of the drive. After 9 months of what I would consider light use the drive has failed.

Can't Get It To Work

Steven F. Deaton, Amazon
21 February 2013
  • Summary: I bought this as external storage for my MacBook Pro. After numerous attempts to get it to act like a simple drag-and-drop storage device, I have given up. Not sure why this isn't simpler to use. To me, an external hard drive should be plug-and-go, and plug and complicated.
