Fast transfert rate
Very fast data transfert. Light and handy to carry. No issue so far.

Experience: 1 Months


great design
high capacity
been 1 month none so far
Thin usb 3.0 transfer speeds, usb powered and portable.

Experience: 14 Days


Quick and small, removable interface.
Plastic casing, seems tricky to disassemble.
It's pretty quick for a 5400RPM drive. You can actually remove the USB-SATA adapter from the drive and use it to connect to other drives or if you can plug it in to your computer's (e)sata interface. It's quiet, doesn't get too hot. Overall decent product, this is the second one I'm buying.

Experience: 1 Days


USM (which allows access to raw SATA ports)
Drive access light could be more informative
For use as a backup drive, I upgraded from a WD Elements SE 500 GB drive to this one.
This one is somewhat faster - it benchmarks at 83.3 MB/s average read, 66.1 MB/s average write. The WD benchmarked at 69.5 MB/s read, 73.1 MB/s average write. Latency was 16.93 ms for this Seagate vs. 17.91 ms for the WD.
It's quite quiet, although there's definitely a low clicking on write. It doesn't get that warm but there is a hotter spot near the drive access light - this is probably the USB - SATA converter chip.
Speaking of the drive access light, I wish Seagate would use a proper light that flashes on drive access. I have another Seagate external drive and this one behaves identically - rather than the light flashing on drive activity, it just slowly pulses. It's hard to tell at a glance what the drive is doing, you have to watch for the pulse and it's somewhat subtle.
I like Seagate's new "USM" idea, where the bare drive is encased with the SATA ports exposed, then a docking, removable converter piece is connected. This allows easy conversion to a Firewire 800 or a Thunderbolt interface - just buy the converter piece. I wish there were eSATA converters as well, but the best solution by far is to dock the drive without the converter piece into a docking station like this:

- it's an Antec USM docking station which uses a 5.25" external drive slot to interface the drive directly to the motherboard via SATA.
A very nice drive, and here's hoping we see more USM products.

- taille de 1 Go
- prix en spécial(65$)
- Le cable USB est vraiment trés court
Produit de bonne qualité comme on peut s'y attendre avec Seagate. Les taux de transfert sont à la hauteur et le design est relativement agréable. Par contre, le cable USB fourni est trop court à mon goût !

Experience: 2 Weeks


Small, fast, and looks good
Cheap feeling
This is great as a small solution for backing up your system. When I was first going to buy it, one of the reasons was because it looked very sleek with a metal-like finish. It's actually very plastic-y feeling to the touch which was a bit disappointing, but otherwise a very nice product.

Experience: 1 Days


-a better buy than a pile of usbs
-got it for a good price
-works fine and is rather slim
-would have liked it to have a 7200rpm drive but generally its good enough for storage
A good seagate drive as usual.

Experience: 1 Months
