Be very careful of buying anything with a Seagate drive. Many users of these drives have been reporting problems with these drives failing during use for several months. Seagate are only now admitting to the issue. You can get faulty drives replaced under warranty of course - but that does not include getting your data off the drive. Some useful links in the forum below

same for all manufacturers, western digital dont even pay for postage and their support is unbelievably abysmal.....3 months to respond to a retrurns request (they only responded in the end because i reported them to Trading Standards and threatened legal action), 2 months to send replacement......5 months!! drive failed after 14 months....also had a lacie drive and that failed after just 2 months....but support so far has been better but still not good enough imo.....7 days to respond to an email

seagate are probably the best because they i am pretty sure they are still the only manufacturer to provide a 5 year warranty (others provide 3 years at best)...think the problem we are finding is these multi platter drives (usually >250gb) are seriously unreliable

No - that is not the case - read the information.

Seagate released drives with faults in the firmware, if you have one of those it will fail during use and you will loose the data stored on it.

if there is a problem with firmware you're gonna know about it pretty quick. with a 5 year warranty and ebuyer customer service you can't go wrong.

this is a portable hard drive. personally i would not be using it to back up data on. all data should be backed up anyway no matter what drive you have.
