I use this hard drive as my server for my video collection. Runs fast enough that video playback is just fine. Once the price comes down, as they usually do, I will buy another for future expansion of my collection.

with the storage capacities of the drives going up and the price coming down this drive is almost cheaper then buying the same amount of storage in dvd's and burning them... matter effect... this will fit 340 dvd's easily and 100 pack of name brand dvd's are about 45 bucks... so do the math...

I had the same problem with clicking, etc. as many others when I first started using this drive. After copying everything back off that I had on it, I repartitioned it 1000/500 and formatted each partition. Since that time, it has worked as expected. I've had it for about 6 months now and am still "waiting for the other shoe to drop" losing what I have stored on it. I've also purchased the 1TB Western Digital and have had not a spec of trouble with it.

I priced hard drives from several different retailers and etailers, this by far was the best price. The unit is a simple plug and play and is awesome. I bought it to store "my documents" on. I have loads of pictures and music and so far have barely made a dent in the capacity. Would definitely recommend this product to anybody looking to expand their memory or for storage.

Great product for the price! Wanted an esata not usb 2.0 back up drive. But, when I had a horrible virus needed everything backed up and this did the trick. On average get about 30 mb to 20 mb per sec. transfer rate and is fast enough to stream video to a ps3 or xbox 360.

Nice to have extra space

The 1.5 TB external storage unit is a nice bonus to people who want more storage space to what they made already have available to them. It has features I didn't expect, like password encryption for securing files. This feature is not handy, nor something I recommend using at all as it multiplies the space consumption. It can be used without it. It has features that allow you to back-up your contents that are on your computer, you can move it from computer to computer, and you can schedule the back-ups. If you have AVG, it will store files on this unit whether you want it to or not. But it does offer a lot of storage space. A nice thing to have if you have a lot of files and need the room. You can even store working programs on here too.

I have used nothing but Western Digital drives and thougt I would try Seagate this round. BIG mistake. After 1 day of use this thing crashed and burned and I lost 500gb of movies! THANK YOU SEAGATE. Aside from the obvious problem the junk software that they absolutly feel the need to include is worthless and I was none to impressed by the write speed of this drive. My old WD 500gb beats the tar out of this thing. Seagate should rethink their design. I sell many HDD's to customers and I can guarantee I will NEVER recommend a Seagate.

get this external hard drive from local Walmart, firt backup was fast and great. I erase all the files from my ald WD external drive (planned to use it for other projects). 3 days later the backup didn´t finish and the Seagate driver is dead with all my files. I´m taking it back for refund but all the infomation will be difficult if not impossible to save. Do not buy this product, if you just bought one, be sure to have a second backup.
