Summary: Feels sturdier than the stock adapter that broke, although I wish they would design the actual USB 3.0 port to be not just a smidgen of metal lightly welded to the mother board. This is the only reason I give it 3 stars, because I had to buy a new one because of this in the first place!
Summary: The only thing you need to be aware of is, you want to be able to set this one up and forget about it. This is now "counterbalance" or base plate for this. The less you move it around, the better. A couple of times I would lose power to my drive, just by moving it.
Summary: It did fine for a while, but I've had really good luck with Seagate in the past and am really disappointed that this one has died. Frankly, I expect them to function longer than 2 years. I used this in a school to reimage computers over the summer.
Summary: Add stated cables were included. They did not come in the box. When I questioned, store said they were not included in add. We resolved with them sending me cables. I appreciate their dedication to customer.
Summary: Having lost my plug for the Seagate hd I have, I ran into the brick wall that is the Seagate website. Crap customer service and difficult to find accessories. Thank god for amazon, found it here quickly and at a great price (waaay less than the Seagate site).
