2 out of 5 eggsSeagate Backup Plus 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive STBU1000101 Silver

Pros: Works well as a portable drive. Small easy to carry around with me. Nice external enclosure design.

Cons: Hard disk stopped working after about 11 1/2 months. LED is blinking and HD makes some clicking sounds.

I have to see if I can get a warranty replacement. Want to see if I can wipe drive first

Other Thoughts: Decided to open drive enclosure up, much to my surprise it had a Samsung HD inside.
The HD is protected well in the enclosure with rubber bumpers and metal shielding for stray electronic signals. Nicely done design.

5 out of 5 eggsGood

Pros: Plenty of storage space. Good USB connection (3.0 is helpful when putting lots of data on/off it). Easy to use. The color is a plus - not just plain old black. I haven't had any issues with it.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsSeveral colors, reliable, fast and hot swap connectors.

Pros: A great option for people who prefer to hot swap different connectors such as (USB 3.0, thunderbolt, etc)
Several color options to personalize.
Seems reliable and fairly well built.

Cons: Connecting the cable sometime can feel a bit too tight.
But not a big deal overall.

1 out of 5 eggsSeagate portable disk STBU1000101

Pros: light weight and compact

Cons: But, the hard disk stopped working after about 3 months. Computer does not discover it and the the LED that should glow when you connect to the computer switches of after few seconds. After connection to the computer, It behaves as if it is not connected to the computer. I have to see if I can get a warranty replacement.

5 out of 5 eggsFairly quick

Pros: Nice portability
Getting 100 MB/s peak transfer rate via USB3
This is fairly quick for a 5400 RPM spindle

Cons: not so far

Other Thoughts: btw there is no "cord"
It is a "cable" or more precisely a "transmission line"

5 out of 5 eggsGreat as a backup drive

Pros: 1 TB, great price (purchased during a sale/promo here at Newegg), USB 3.0. Comes apart easily for drive access if needed.

Cons: USB cord is fairly short

Other Thoughts: Have purchased several of these as backup drives and so far so good with all of them. I have purchased all of them on sale as I do feel the full retail price for this drive is somewhat high.

5 out of 5 eggsit's an external hard drive

Pros: It's fast! Like 90mb/s sustained transfer rate write on my HP Elitebook 8570p fast

Connector is awesome and can help you out in a jam with a regular bare laptop hard drive

Cons: The case is mostly plastic

Other Thoughts: So I have an old USB 2.0 Seagate 320GB drive. It is still working and I am a segate fan boy to an extent because they don't let me down like the WD's I have owned. I chose this because the Toshiba external has connector problems; and the other brands use who knows what drive inside; more often than not a hitachi (not impressed with those 2.5 inch drives at all... I am an engineer and I have seen massive failures with those) or a Western Digital which I do not like at ALL. It is a real speed demon for what it is. These comments come from a guy who is accustomed to large NetApp, EMC, Hitachi, IBM, and HP sans with multiple terabytes of SSD's serving mixed workloads.
