5.0 out of 5 stars So far so good!!!, 2 Feb 2009

This review is from: Seagate 640GB FreeAgent Desk USB 2.0 (Personal Computers)
EDIT ON MAY 16 2010.
This HD still working. It is now full and I plan on buying the 1TB one now.

Got this yesterday opened up Disk Utility on OS X and formated into two partitions one for Time Machine one for general storage. All went well and its still running.

It goes off when I put the system too sleep too. Its not loud at all and the light its not distractive.

If you own any kind of Mac, Book or Desktop, this will look stunning along side them. The power lead is of an appropriate length and so is the USB cable. One thing to note is that it has no Firewire port. Although the transfer rate is not too bad.

It comes with feet for standing it horizontally or you can store like I have which is vertically on the stand.

The design is stunning on the front and to be honest all in all this is a great piece of kit. I highly recommend it to any one, this is a must have item for any system.

How ever I did read in one review that the software that comes with it will ONLY back-up Windows XP/Vista. Although it says Windows 2000 on the box you have to download this piece of software from there website,which doesn't work. When the guy contacted Seagate they said;
"The software for Windows 2000 never came in the box so we can not guarantee anything."
So this may be something to watch out for!

Apart from this a great pice of kit.

I bought this for my dad (a computer geek!!) as a christmas present and even he cant praise it highly enough. He is normally very picky when it comes to choosing products for his computer but he has zero complaints!! Bargain price too!

Compared to the previous version which was very good this just flies. I used it as backup to a SATA 2 drive with a 32mb cache it absolutely flew with Acronis as the backup software. Fantastic performance, great value. A List for backups
