    I'm somewhat taken aback at the response here.

    I have six of these Seagate GoFlex drives - all bought in pairs. My first two and my second two were the (as then available early type) USB 2.0 docking stands for which I had to buy the Seagate USB docking stand, to run at USB 3.0.

    The last pair, I bought direct from Amazon this May, and I've found myself on this vendor's site and reading these comments, specifically wanting to buy the USB 3.0 version - Part Number 7636490033216.

    I'd like to make 3 points, please.

    1. None of my 6 drives are noisy in any way.

    2. An HD that arrives DOA (Dead On Arrival) is pretty unusual - I've not had one in over 30 or so I've bought mail-order since around 1985, and just MIGHT be caused by damage in transit.

    In fact the only component in all that time was just over a year ago and was a 2GB DRAM chip, which is pretty unlikely to be damaged in transit, and must have escaped some part of the manufacturer's tests.

    That said, I fully sympathise with anyone who pays up front and receives faulty goods.


    I have seen a few reviews where peeps complain about the "capacity indicators" advertised not working. These ate the line of 4 small LEDs on the base, adjacent to the main LED that gently brightens and dims, signifying the drive is in use.
    Seagate do not make it clear this facility only works when the drives are being used in USB 3.0 mode and they don't work in the default (and backward compatible) USB 2.0 mode. Naughty Seagate for not making this clear, but I have seen several reviews where the customers have claimed their disks were faulty because these lights didn't work (On the USB 2.

    I bought this drive to use with my iMac. I only have USB 2 on my Mac but as the interface on the drive is changeable I'm hoping to get the Thunderbolt interface once it drops to about £30, currently it costs over £140 which is ridiculous as that's more than £99.99 i paid for the drive.

    The drive is very quiet in use and the discrete white led glows when in use. Build quality is plasticky but weighty. It's designed to stand upright on four small rubber feet. The USB 3 cable supplied is shortish but adequate and has what looks like a propriety plug on the end that fits into the drive. It's not a usual USB 3 plug but could be a micro USB 3 plug if such a thing exists.

    I formated the drive on the Mac and didnt bother with installing the supplied software. Time Machine works great. Be careful not to move the drive when in use as the (micro) USB plug can move causing the drive to be ejected.

    The only strange thing is that the power supply makes a strange electronic ticking noise which even continues for a while after the adapter is unplugged. Other people have mentioned it on a Seagate forum, I've never experienced anything like it before but as others have mentioned it, it must be how the adapter is designed. They also supply the socket pins for other countries power outlets in the box and therefore can be interchanged on the adapter.

    Before Mac formatting I tested it on my PC over USB 3 and I got the usual 40-50MB/sec write speed which is twice USB 2. Hope thunderbolt gets cheap fast as I need it's speed for large backups.

    All in all happy and I've given 1 star less for the weird power supply noise.

    Update, contacted Seagate and they sent me a replacement Power Supply and no noise now, so 5 stars!

    Size Name: 3TB Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
    On opening the box the backup plus comes in one is immediately impressed with the solid build quality of the matt black unit. Included is a compact power adapter with options for UK or Euro plug (it can not be powered over the USB cable) and a relatively short USB compliant cable.

    I borrowed my wife's laptop to test the unit with as it includes a USB 3 port and followed the clear "quick start" instructions. The drive was quickly identified and drivers installed on Windows 7 and reported as having 2.72TB of available space (pretty capacious by any home standards!).

    Double clicking on "Seagate Dashboard Installer" downloads an additional 90MB and, in less than five minutes, installs the bundled software. The program then launches (unfortunately *behind* other windows which too me a moment to spot!).

    Under Home/Settings you can set up your country and, if you wish, you can register your drive (when I chose not to this was accepted gracefully).

    The main interface contains three broad areas called Protect, Share and Save.

    Save gives you the chance to download and backup online accounts. I signed into Facebook and there was a two minute pause where I was not sure what was happening. Then, suddenly it popped up a message saying "5194 new files"...I think that it must download a large XML configuration file and isn't terribly informative whilst it does so - so bear with it. After that a useful progress bar appears and a directory called E:\My Online Documents\Facebook\<username> appears on the hard drive with subdirectories for "My Pictures" and "My Videos" with a progress bar.
