4 out of 5 eggsbackup software difficult to install

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 1TB 2.5" USB 3.0 Black Portable Hard Drive

Pros: USB 3.0
portability
nice looking

Cons: Backup software requires several other Microsoft programs to install.
The installer can't remember where it left off after a failed install.

Other Thoughts: I bought this for my sister-in-law to automagically backup her laptop. The backup software has a lot of dependencies on microsoft programs, such as .net, c++ redist, etc. Had major problems trying to get those installed, (Windows update issues) and the project became a big mess, but I would have preferred a backup software that didn't have so many dependencies.
I ended up installing some other third party backup program since I never got the included back program to work.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 1TB 2.5" USB 3.0 Black Portable Hard Drive

Pros: This is a fantastic hard drive! It has a very sleek look to it and is the perfect size. The main connection detaches so you can use that for other SATA hard drives if you choose to. The speed is great and the price was even better!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Highly recommended!

5 out of 5 eggsSet it and forget it

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 1TB 2.5" USB 3.0 Black Portable Hard Drive

Pros: This is my 2nd. USM drive, I use it to transfer (RAW) photos down-loaded in the field then up-loaded to my desk-top work-station and/or NAS. I tend to leave it in my NAS after it's done with the one touch down-load so I'm not to concerned about how fast it works overnight.

Cons: ?

Other Thoughts: The newer version doesn't plug into an USM bay, and now you can get a USM receiver that you can install in an empty 5.25" bay.

5 out of 5 eggsFor $60, can't be beat

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 1TB 2.5" USB 3.0 Black Portable Hard Drive

Pros: Nice compact size, easy to tote, a truly portable HD solution. Fast using a USB 3.0 connection

Cons: Haven't found any yet.

Other Thoughts: I've used this to provide back-ups to PCs I have in two separate locations as well as doing some back-up images for my work computers. And the end-of-year price was the best!

4 out of 5 eggsGets the job done!

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 1TB 2.5" USB 3.0 Black Portable Hard Drive

Pros: *High capacity and very small.
*Nice brushed aluminium look.
*USB 3.0 for high speed transfers.
I bought this when it was on sale for $59! I would have bought it for 30 more easily. I use this drive for pictures, music, and games. Gets the job done at fast speeds.

Cons: The USB cable is very short. I use it with my laptop and router so not really a problem for me but will be out of reach for most desktop users.

Other Thoughts: Iv always used Seagate h/d's and never had any issues with them. This drive is very portable and not awkward shaped at all.

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 1TB 2.5" USB 3.0 Black Portable Hard Drive

Pros: Fantastic, compact, easy usability. It's everything you want in a drive this size. Transfer speeds are quite good and there's not need for an additional power supply. USB does it all.

Cons: None.

1 out of 5 eggsUseless software highlights useless support

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 1TB 2.5" USB 3.0 Black Portable Hard Drive

Pros: Was not able to use unit for intended purpose so Pros could not be developed.

Cons: Trying to operate unit on Windows Surface running 8.1. Would not install the bundled software nor the available (really had to search diligently) updated V2. Other users expressed frustration at results equal to mine.

Other Thoughts: The burden shouldn't be on the end-user to go to extraordinary steps to make a consumer device work. That's apparently what Seagate intends with this item. It's too bad as Seagate used to be a proud company.

2 out of 5 eggsNot What I Expected

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 1TB 2.5" USB 3.0 Black Portable Hard Drive

Pros: I like the size and design.

Cons: The software made this drive useless. It could only be used with TimeMachine (on a Mac) which is NOT what I wanted to use it for. Returning it.
