Summary: This is the second Seagate product I've purchased and I can honestly say that much of the criticism of this particular hard drive is unwarranted, at least in my case. It has performed flawlessly out of the box and to the specifications identified in the manufac- turer's description. It is efficient, affordable and well worth the effort of seeking out one used.

Summary: As other reviewers have stated, there are multiple issues with this drive. The case is poorly designed--too thick to provide a good fit for the mini-usb jack in the side of the case, so it is easy for the usb cable to become partly dislodged. Then there is the power issue.

Summary: 8/11/2014 Downgrade to one star. Drive worked for two and a half weeks, then started giving SMART errors. I plugged the serial number into Seagate's warranty checker and it told me there was no information for that drive. I have to call them to see if they will honor the warranty. In the meantime, I have to buy another drive to keep my customer running while this one gets repaired. 2 weeks... Seriously!
Excerpt: The last time that my laptop began having problems I begun the annoying process of backing up all my files…onto CD-Rs. In total it took me 7 CDs and almost fourteen hours to back up all my files. I immediately decided to invest in a portable hard drive.
Summary: Beware - although listed as a retail kit, you will receive only the hard drive which has no screws nor cables as described - yet you are paying the price for the kit. The product may also be counterfeit. If you "google" this part, you will see different packaging than what you will receive.
