Product Description

Seagate Slim, 2.5-inch Portable Hard Drive

Seagate Slim 500GB Portable Hard Drive - Silver
Thin, Light and Easy Back-up

The Seagate Slim portable drive is an extremely thin external hard drive, ideal for consumers who want to back-up their digital lives and take the drive with them on the go. At slightly thicker than a standard iPhone, the brushed metal design allows you to slide the drive into your pocket, purse or briefcase and carry it with you. Via the Seagate Dashboard, use the Protect function to set-up your easy, automatic local back-up with a one-click or scheduled plan. Keep multiple copies of your files in case disaster strikes.

With the Save feature, user-generated content can be backed-up from your favourite social networks. Many people use their smartphones to capture priceless moments, but while these devices are handy and readily available, storage is not their strong suit. Capture a memory, post it on a social networking site and let the Seagate Dashboard automatically back-up any content posted. Even if the file gets accidentally deleted from the device, another copy can be waiting.

The Share feature allows multiple files to be uploaded to social networks at once from your computer. The days of uploading individual files without creating a new album are gone. Simply select files to upload, choose where to post them and even add comments. Managing your social profile has never been easier.

Install the preloaded NTFS driver on a Mac and use the drive interchangeably between PCs and Mac computers, without reformatting the drive.

Colour Name: BlackSize Name: 4TB
I took a chance on this drive (model STDA4000200) hoping that it contained two high capacity 2TB 2.5" HDD's with standard SATA connections. Upon receipt I first tested that it worked. It worked fine with read/write speeds in excess of 230Mbits, very fast for 5400rpm 2.5" HDD's working in RAID-0 config. After proving everything worked I popped open the lid, removed 4x plastic locking tabs, took out the drives, removed them from their thin metal cage and pulled off the SATA/RAID connector. Both drives had standard SATA sockets and both work fine individually. I have one now working within my PS4 and the other being used within my laptop. They run quietly and are only 9mm or so thick, so will fit within most devices without issues. This is a cheap way to obtain 2TB M9T HDD's.

Colour Name: SilverSize Name: Capacity- 1TB Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I've used this HDD on both Windows and Mac computers, it's preformatted to be used on both which is good:
- nice design, plastic body with a metallic appearance
- works with USB 2 and USB 3, the cable is included; the HDD is plug and play
- note that the cable is the same as supplied with WD drives, USB at one end and what looks like SATA at the other (not micro-USB)
- the device is powered by the USB cable therefore no additional power cables needed
- very small and quiet unit, easily transportable and build quality feels good
- there's an LED on top which indicates it's powered, but nothing to show it's being accessed (read/write), which I feel is a major let down
- it's slimmer than other drives (e.g. WD) of the same size
- at it's current price of 56GBP, I think it's a bargain
- it does come with software already installed on the HDD (for backing up, etc.) but you don't need to install it which is a huge benefit in my view.

I use this HDD as a backup drive but it'll work just as well as a portable storage unit. Overall I'm really pleased with it and would definitely recommend it to others.

Colour Name: SilverSize Name: Capacity- 1TB Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have owned a few of these drives and they never fail to impress. They are nearly silent and come with some pretty useful software which will show you in great detail, how to use this drive, making the most of its features. Like the fact that the drive enters a sleep mode after a certain period to conserve electricity, this does not affect performance though as it quickly spins back to life once it is needed. I guess its hard to stand out in the world of hard drive production although this works fantastically well and has not given me a single problem, very highly recommended.

Colour Name: BlueSize Name: Capacity- 1TB Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Seagate have come up with a very attractive USB 3.0 HDD, I love the metallic blue anodized aluminum of the top of the drive, the underside is black plastic, it's very sleek in design.

This drive has a capacity of 1TB, which lets face it is big enough for most purposes, being USB 3 it is also quick and also very quiet in operation.

With the drive you get a USB 3.0 lead which is also backwards compatible with USB 2 but transfer speeds will be slower, a white LED fades on and off slowly during file transfers, I'd prefer it if it flashed like other drives I have.

This drive comes with back-up software installed on it, however you don't have to install it to your laptop/PC if you don't wish to use it.

Build quality looks good, but this is not a 'tough' drive so may not withstand being dropped or bashed about that much, the USB socket seems firm and solid.

A good, compact drive that easily slips into a pockets and looks attractive too.

Colour Name: SilverSize Name: 500GB Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Seagate's Slim portable drive is nicely designed and is certainly slim and light, making it easy to carry around. It's also a smooth shape so fits nicely into pockets etc. It's about the thickness of a smart phone and a little wider. It's not the largest capacity but not long ago, this would have seemed like ample storage for most needs.

It works fine as a drag and drop store for files, BUT critically for me, I have not managed to get the on board software to work. Let me stress that this isn't essential and you can still use it as a drag and drop drive, but I was specifically looking for the benefits of the on board software to allow computer back up and to explore some of the social media back up options.

The software is there but when I try to install it, it says "unable to locate probably due to download interruption". And yet no download is involved. I'm running Win 7 and also turned off AV software before attempting this. So, onto the Seagate web site. There are several other posts with the same problem, several of them three or more months old, with no response from the Seagate moderators. There is an option to download the software though, so I tried that with exactly the same result. So the main reason I wanted this drive is completely ineffective. Clearly for some, the software works fine, so it must be something with my set up, although I have never had an issue with drive software installations prior to this. What irks most is the lack of response from Seagate to what is clearly an issue for more than a few. All the troubleshooting assumes you have loaded the software - no mention of when it fails to install at all.
