Seagate Backup Plus Slim 1 TB ext HD

Submitted on Friday, January 05, 2018

Strengths of the product

fast; small

Weaknesses of the product

Failed after 2-3 uses. A piece of junk. Quality Control totally lacking.

Additional Comments

I will do product review research before I buy another storage device. One I decide on make and model I will do an online search to see if the HD is worth buying or burying.

Failed after 3 hours use

Strengths of the product

- Looks pretty - Cheap

Weaknesses of the product

- Cheap components - Samsung hard drive (M9T apparently) garbage - Seagate Tech Support consists of running diskpart and then being told to send it and that if you want your datz recovrred it $70 to look at and another $750 if they recover anything.

Additional Comments

Garbage drive remarked as Seagate. Backed up my Xp computer, verified the files copied okay, then formatted the Xp drives for linux install. Copied a couple file to linux install then went to copy to new pc but bup just clicked and beeped. Akin to the click of death for old zip drives. Less than 3 hours of use. Unplugged only after machine was powered off and never dropped or jostled. I lost everythjng because I backed it up with this. Don't buy!

Nice little drive

Strengths of the product

- Small enough to fit in a shirt pocket - Solid build quality - Very fast using USB 3 - I've gotten over 80MB/s on transfers - Simple to use - just plug in the USB cable

Weaknesses of the product

The cable is a bit too short

Additional Comments

This is a great product. High capacity, small form factor, very fast, grest price - what more do you want? You can encrypt data by enabling that feature using the Seagate Dashboard software supplied with the drive, but it does not do it by default - unlike WD drives. I'm very happy with this product, and wouldn't think twce about recommending it. You may want to get a longer USB 3 cable, though.

Seagate 1TB Backup Plus Slim Portable Drive USB 3

Strengths of the product

Size is great. Doesn't get that warm. Good transfer speeds.

Weaknesses of the product

Short cable.

Additional Comments

I tried using a USB 3.0 extension and windows wanted to format the drive. Then I plugged it straight in to the PC and everything was fine. So don't use an extension on this device or windows will freak out. If the cable isn't long enough you will have to buy a longer USB 3.0 A - B cable. Overall a very good drive so far.
