2 out of 5 eggsBad drive

Pros: very good portable drive, fast data transfer

Cons: failed within 2 years and seagate has out of warranty, even if on their warranty page says most drives as 5 years of warranty. lost some of old memories.

1 out of 5 eggsUnreliable

Pros: While it was working, large space and portability.

Cons: Lasted just over 2 years (Purchased on 7/8/2013). For a drive intended for backup (or at least that's how I was using it) reliability is key and this just didn't provide.

What's more disappointing is this is my newest hard drive Typically in the past, my hard drives are usually decommissioned by being obsoleted. Hopefully this isnt a new trend with hard drives.

Other Thoughts: I still have a hard drive in my computer from 9/7/2007 running just fine, not sure what happened here. I'd pass on this hard drive.

1 out of 5 eggsFailure without warning

Pros: The Drive was cheap on deal and fast with USB 3.0

Cons: After two years of in home use with nearly zero issues the drive has failed out of the blue. No warning signs, no clicking, and no time to attempt to back it up.

Other Thoughts: I expect bulky externals to fail eventually but to show no sign of failing is unacceptable.

2 out of 5 eggsWorked great until it didn't.

Pros: Plenty of storage space. Took a year to even put a dent in the capacity with HD game capture footage.

Cons: Like many other reviews on here say, the drive just randomly stopped working. At first it wasn't always recognized by my PC, but now there's no power to it.

Wasn't a fan of having a separate power cable. Less cables to mess with, the better.

Seemed like the drive would get a little on the warm side despite sitting on my desk right by an AC unit.

1 out of 5 eggs1 out 3 unit failures; So Far

Pros: Inexpensive

Cons: Infrequent usage and it still failed. I use it to move backups between buildings (true sneakernet for us old-timers...) on a weekly cycle between 3 units to move 2.5TB to offsite storage. Device #2 just failed after about 2 years. I have higher expectations from Seagate considering the low amount of usage i.e. low number of read/ write cycles.

4 out of 5 eggsXbox One Expansion

Pros: I purchased this drive for Xbox One expansion as your internal drive seems to disappear quickly. Was a matter of plugging it in, formatting the drive, and moving games.

Has a small blue light toward the back of it that is the status light, and will blink but is not annoying. Very simple and easy to setup and start using.

Cons: The only cons I can say are that the power plug is fat so it takes up 2 plugins on most power strips, etc.

This thing is also pretty heavy, I wouldn't imagine anyone carrying it around as storage to move back and forth to work unless you really needed that much space and couldn't get a portable drive.

Other Thoughts: The only odd thing I came across was I had to plug it into the side USB instead of a back USB. For some reason the drive wasn't detected until I did that. I am going to try again later to see if it can plug into those, but is working fine.

I bought 2 of them for my 2 Xbox Ones, and both work as they should.
