Keith,

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
Reviewer left no comment
Bad points:
Built in software from Seagate does not work with Windows 7 Ultimate
Their software support staff have spent over two hours trying to get it to work. Eventually they downloaded another piece of software.

It seems to work but can only tell if I really have a major failure.

Hadrian, Huddersfield

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
Apparent simplicity of set up
Bad points:
Complete absence of any comprehensive information on how to set it up and understand what it is doing.
Despite e-mails and phone calls to Seagate I have no confidence in this unit.

Peter, York

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
I bought this as a Time Machine back-up for my iMac. It was very easy to set up and continues to do the job with no problems. I can't yet say whether it is reliable. The price was good for 2TB storage - when the price of solid-state storage becomes more reasonable, I will replace it, but it seems a good interim solution.
Bad points:
It is very large and not very pretty compared to the 1TB 2.5" drive that it replaces, but I needed 2 TB and thought a 3.5" would be more robust. It is noisy - sounds like an old-fashioned desktop PC - the only way I could keep it acceptably quiet was to lie it on its side on a towel. It is still obvious when a back-up is taking place, and it keeps running for some time afterwards and sometimes starts up spontaneously for no good reason.
