Geoff, Cornwall

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Discrete design. Quiet. Works as described. I've always used Seagate for their reliability.
Bad points:
Some freeware stuff comes pre-installed. Why add more software to your PC when Windows does the same stuff anyway?

James,

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Good idea that you can change the connection! Nice design.
Bad points:
DO NOT INSTALL THE FREEGATE DRIVES ON A MAC. If you do, the drive will fall asleep when copying large files and crash your mac. This is not good.
The updated drive also does not work (according to other blog users).
You can run this drive when formatted to mac perfectly, though you will not be able to use the 'light gauge' to see how fall the drive is, but to be honest, I don't really need this gauge. HOWEVER IT WOULD BE GOOD IF SEAGATE COULD PUBLISH THIS FACT ON SITES OR SORT THE DAMN DRIVER OUT TO LET BUYERS KNOW ABOUT IT AS I SPENT AGES TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHY THE DRIVE AND MY MAC KEPT CRASHING!

Peter,

Good points:
Nice design and good price
Bad points:
Seagate software installed makes disk unusable with Mac running Mountain Lion. Just reformat the disk getting rid of the Seagate stuff and it will work fine with Time Machine.

Stephen,

Good points:
Looks nice, large capacity for the money.
Bad points:
Doesn't work. Freezes my computer when copying files over. Computer is unresponsive until I remove the drive. Seatools can't fix it, I tried everything - the drive is going back to the shop. Do not waste your time with this one.
