Steer clear, I bought one from ebuyer recently and it has already developed the dreaded click of death! I've already transferred all my data on to another hard drive as advised by Seagate themselves.
#2
fault prone model, have a search on pc pro news, bought one from currys and took it back the next day as it constantly made clicking noises. Stupid woman at currys won't exchange it without a big argument though!

Bought the Seagate freedrive, better quality, and only a fiver or so more, and has a 5 year warrenty even though its the same brand.

Haven't voted.

strange...i just think the quality is getting worse......i have a 7 year old wd 250 drive...no probs whatsoever.....in that time, ive had 3 other drives fail or larger sized....lacie 320 (lasted 1 week), wd500 (lasted 8 months), wd500 replacement seems ill and has the clicking, wd 1tb is ok as is the new lacie 500 (replacement to the 320)...i always store my important data on external drives, less defragging required on the main drive which just has the os and programs....also means if you pc is trashed by a virus then you lessen the risk of losing you data

Also had one that clicked it's way to death within 3 weeks. Avoid. Not voted

Yeah, that's much better, instead of a dead HD, end up with a dead PSU...these are as bad as the Seagate if not worse. Plus they do not have a power switch.

so which drive do you guys recommend then?

Western Digital Elements 1tb always seems to get a good write up, though make sure you don't buy old stock with the 5 pin transformer.

I would say don't buy the cheap range from any maker ie, Elements from Western Digitsl or this drive from Seagate.

But pay a bit more like a tenner and get the Seagate Freedrive or Western Digital My book. (probably got the names a bit wrong as typing from my handheld)

I can recommend the Samsung Story. They run very quiet and cool, even the PSU hardly develops any temperature. I also had good experience with LaCie.
#16
Bought 2 of these about 6 months ago , both work perfectly fine , never had a problem with them.
#17
The latest WD Elements are a similar price to this and a much better drive. The WD HDD in the Elements was always fine, it was the PSU's that packed up. The later PSU's were modified - just make sure you don't buy one of the older ones (has a 5-pin connector on the PSU lead, as opposed to a single 'barrel' connector on the newer ones).
#18
After a bit of research, I decided to go with the WD 1TB drive from Amazon.

When I looked into Seagate, there were too many stories about their drives failing and the 'click of death'.

Seagate have had a number of issues with the Freeagent range, i've RMA'd one, a 750GB pro.
They are tempramental, run hot and the drives installed are OEM drives, no firmware updates available for them, and you cant flash them with the current comparable model either, you'll brick it


I agree with whoever said quality is getting poor across the board, i have an older 320GB version in one of the grey seagate enclosures, thats cool, and has run flawlessly while others i have come and gone by the wayside.

My advice, buy a good enclosure you will keep for a while, something like one from macopower
http://www.macpower.com.tw/products/

and then add in good reliable retail drives as you need, after you've checked their reviews, then later should you want to upgrade the size simply install a another drive or larger one

Yeah, that does seem to be the case, my older 400GB and 500GB Seagates were running fine, but the newer 1TB hard disk failed (f/w issue - no data loss whatsoever), the 1.5TB is still working fine.

Everyones experience is different, but Seagate drives are the best IMO, all the brands have problems ofcourse, Seagate just seem to have less problems overall.

Seagate is a Top brand - but unsure if this should be recommended as the drive maybe the older one and fail.

ah yes i forgot about that, and something else....

1. Seagate had firmware issues on certain drives, check google for the link to the list of affected drives and avoid those like the plague

and

2. The freeagent pro has a drive in it that is capable of running in SATA 150 or 300 mode (or SATAI vs SATAII if you prefer) ... problem, it does not always switch smothly, and thus can give you weird errors, however, the drive CAN be forced into SATA 150 mode only by placing a jumper across 2 pins, unlike other makers drives that need a software fix that is usless if the drives not working right for you, or alternatively, you can connect via Firewire and the issue seems to go away ... this of course only applies if your trying to connect them to the older SATA 150 protocol driven host/socket
