Summary: Had minor trouble at first, but now it is not working at all. Created one share that I could not access and could not delete. Also could not delete some file folders in my public share. Used it for over a year, now it just keeps re-booting over and over again. Tried a new power supply, no help.
Summary: very minimal use, and the drive died after 3.5 years, just past the limited warranty expired. the smart drive thing told me that is was going to fail so I was able to move files before it completely crapped out kept running into issues where the discovery program that would map it to my computer...
Summary: The drive's been working for 2years and 2 months. It's dead now. Just been using as a media server drive and system backups. Now it just reboots endlessly and makes a the notorious seagate clicking noise. UGHH!
Summary: it worked fine for about close to year but not quite and it completely crashed on me. I called Seagate to have it restored but they said it would cost at least 600 to recover. Not happy AT ALL!
Summary: So I purchased one of these, hoping I could make it a redundant backup for photos/music/etc. It's convoluted to setup, and once it is, you can only use the software to backup other drives/info TO it. So once the "hard drive" (I assume it's a bad controller) failed, I have no way to get to the drive.
Summary: Like many other here, I've had this drive for just under a year. It was a decent way to access common docs, music and other files from the 7 PCs scattered though out our house, and act as a backup from our primary computers. I say was, because sometime over the weekend, it just died.
Summary: I purchased the 110 device and thought it a breeze to set up, configure, do backups and store my data. Then about a week ago it failed. I called Seagate support and they concluded that the unit was bad and they would send out another, because it was under warranty. So, I asked about all of my data.
Summary: Update: I'm dropping it to two stars after some months of continued use. Even if you limit your use of the features, it's frustratingly slow and unresponsive. If two systems are accessing it, for example, if backups are running, it just chokes.
It worked adequately, right up until it failed completely.
