Colour Name: SilverSize: 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.

Failed within 6 months, I have lost nearly everything. My mac has a small SSD and I used this to store my family photos and videos, ALL gone, the drive isn't detected. My 8 year old seagate FreeAgent go 500gb works flawlessly, unfortunately this was used only for playing movies via my TV and doesn't have important data, like the photos and videos I had of my little brother who died when he was 15 from Muscular Dystrophy. I have nothing to remember him by.

Th drive was used lightly and always in a case and never left the house, it was working fine then just stopped. All seagate instructions to attempt to rectify it are useless. This is a faulty product by design...

PLEASE READ THE OTHER 1 STAR REVIEWS, DO NOT RELY ON THIS DRIVE AS YOUR ONLY BACKUP!!!

UPDATE: I took this drive apart carefully and took the Samsung branded HDD out, then connected it to my mac and pc using a USB 3.0 TO SATA adapter like this one and voila, it works flawlessly. The cheaply made USB controller in the casing is the part that fails easily. It seems Seagate want us thinking that we have lost our data so we pay for their £450 data recovery service. As soon as you connect via the sata to usb interface it works flawlessly like it did before the planned obsolescence, though you'll need to buy another enclosure, but at least you'll be able to get access to your data.

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.

Really well made, comes loaded with good software and its pretty slim, its slimmer then most 2.5 hard drives and its a perfect fit for a PS4 upgrade since the PS4 uses a smaller sized 2.5 drive, so this is a cheap way to upgrade your PS4 to 2TB!! its cheaper then buying a hard drive to swap with your PS4 one and if you warm it up a bit and get a thin screw driver and guitar pick, you can easily remove the top metal cover to swap the Hard Drive with the PS4 one. So you can easily upgrade your PS4 to 2TB and most people on the internet destroy the case by forcing it off hard but if you get it warm to make the glue lose and gently lift the lid of slowly and watching out for the clips which the guides don,t tell you about then you can easily put the PS4 500GB hard drive into this case so you end up with a upgraded 2TB PS4 and a 500GB fast USB 3.0 hard drive in a nice case and if you back up the Seagate software to copy it over to the 500GB one then you have the added bonus of the tools.

This drive is also very fast and really portable due to it's size, it has a metal top which does go alright with the look of a Mac, but it's not a perfect match since it is more of a brushed steel.

So get this one if you're looking for a PS4 upgrade

My daughter and I had that discussion last evening. She is in the "Mac World"; poor old dad stodgily plods along in the Windows based systems. Should one back up all one's precious files in "the cloud" or on a hard drive? Being a belt and suspenders sort of guy, I argued that the "vs." should be removed, replaced by an "and." And with the continued improvements in technology, both are readily viable solutions. Trust, if you will, some provider to operate and maintain "the cloud" securely for you, but also verify that you have the files available, even if the Internet is not, say in the Gila Wilderness. Of course, as my daughter perceptively noted, why would you want to look at your "files" in the Gila Wilderness?

Seagate has produced a wonderful "belt and suspenders" type of external hard drive. First of all, although designed for the Mac World, with minor effort, it also can be configured to work with the Windows based systems. Please note the "also," meaning that it will function with both systems. It comes with a USB cable that will work with both the newer (and naturally faster) USB 3.0 ports as well as the older USB 2.0 ports.

If you have a Mac, as the name of the product implies, simply pop it out of the box (and pry it out of the plastic), plug it in, and it works. If you have a Windows based system, you need to look at the directions, (conveniently printed in 327 languages- OK, I exaggerate slightly). You obtain Seagate's URL for the Windows "app," go there, download and install on your Windows system. It is about as straightforward and "foolproof" as possible. It took me a couple of minutes only to load it onto my "Dell Inspiron i3147-3750sLV 11.6-Inch 2 in 1 Convertible Touchscreen Laptop" which I also received via the Vine program.
