Excellent product from seagate.
By Vivek Singhon
I have used and broken many external hard disks. This one is my latest purchase. Works like a charm.
A few tips to handle any hard disk with care -
1. First thing - Buy a solid case for your hard disk. I recommend capdase/amzer.
2. Do not ever, I mean never ever drop it! NEVER!
3. If anything goes wrong, don't even try to open it. Go to service center instead. Comes with a 3 year warranty.Even if you don't have the bill, don't bother, go to the service center. Don't try to experiment with it. You can buy new hard disks but never even think of retrieving data ! It costs 1000-2000 for just getting the drive "checked"!! Data retrieval of around 500 GB can cost you around as high as 25000 depending upon the service provider.
4. Always use the " Remove Safely" feature. Might sound silly, but the every time you simply remove the disk without following this step, some sectors of the disk get permanently damaged. With time you will see your hard disk not working at optimum speeds. Copy and paste operations take forever. The usable space gets reduced with time.
5. Don't lose the data cable. Comes very costly. The pin for this disk is very unique. You can't use any other cable!
BE CAREFUL ,decent external hdd from seagate but.......
By Vijay Kumaron
i bought this model outside
it serves the purpose but the biggest drawback is its body
made up of cheap plastic ,it may even break if you use it frequently and beware handle it very very carefully because even once if it fall it'll surely break :(
also the usb cable is not good everytime i plug in the usb cable to the hdd it gives a "tic" sound !!!!
as if something has broken inside
seagate has hiked its prices enormously but why build products with cheap plastic
next time i wont buying seagate at all
GOOD PORTABLE HDD
By Sourav Biswason
I bought this 2 days back but not from flipkart.
The HDD is simply great , too small and light.just plug and play.
I am using in on windows and linux both.for this u have to format it with NTFS and allocation unit size should be maximum at 64kilobytes then you will get max read and write speed.to do this just right click on the drive in windows (xp or higher) click on format option,then select 64KB as the allocation unit size.I am getting write speed about 30MBPS in USB 2.0.I dont have 1 USB 3.0.
connecting cable is a bit weird design to support both USB 2 and USB 3.any micro USB to full USB cable will work.a USB 3 cable is given which works with USB 2 also.
a tiny blue indicator is there also which you would not notice until it glows during operation.

I ordered this product around 11 am on the 10th Jan. and it got delivered next day within 24 hours around 11 am. I was pretty desperate for it too.
Well, I immediately transfered 47 GB and it took 40 minutes at speed 20mb/sec
My PC USB port 2.0, Seagate comes with 3.0.
then again tranfered 39 GB, it took 32 mins, 54 GB it took 47mins and 7.5GB it took 6 mins
transfer speed being around 21mb/sec throughout.
USB cable that comes with it is not that too short as read here. Its about half a meter long with the device connected. Well suitabe for PCs too.
1TB but actual storage or capacity shows 931GB (69 GB Short?)
Previously, I ordered 16GB memory card from flipkart and I got it withi 48 hours
Inferior Product Quality
By Giboy Panickeron
The Hard disc stopped working after 2-3 days of working..I feel it is some inferior product from Seagate. Flipkart will be only take it back , if it s packed in the same pack. Unfortunately i lost it and now i am hearing that they cant do anything.
good product with bad body.
By Armaan Guptaon
using this product for past 3 months. it is fast and reliable. only disadvantage is the size of cable; which is too short and its body which will break into pieces the moment you drop it(even from small heights). i bought a 250 rupees double cover casing for it even before using the hard disk for the first time. if you need to travel with this product, be extra careful or go for other products. you get 930GB free by default and it can be increased to full 1024GB if you format it. be sure to register the product right after buying it; registration link is put inside hard disk. overall, product is good for usage and you wont regret your decision of buying it.

Speed so high..

Descent product and low maintenance.
By Ravi H.c.on
I have been using this product since a year. It is descent and low maintenance. Except it draws more power from host USB port. Some of your port may not provide sufficient power which leads to inappropriate behavior of your data stored in your drive, like your videos may hang or your games get stuck at some point. In that case i had changed to other port and now it is running excellent with no problem.
Very BAD hard disk. Dont buy.
By Rengarajan Ramanon
1) Most of us have shifted to Windows 8.1 or 10. But, this product is compatible with only Win XP. I thought that it would be compatible with latest versions of Windows too.
2) The one that was delivered to me has a different look and weak case, which is not advertised here
3) Very poor and bad response from Flipkart officials when I contacted them to take it back. They said that it would not work on WIn 7 and greater.
4) Packaging is poor in recent days
5) Flipkart doesnot care about QUALITY but they FOCUS ONLY ON "MONEY".
Do not buy this product!
By Amazon Customeron
Within less than a month it stopped being detected by my computer.With extremely important data in it I had to send it for recovering data which is not included in the warranty, costed me 45000 to recover from a 4K worth device.
Not great after 1.5 Yrs of use
is not working after 1.8 yrs of usage, not sure why. It never had a fall or was badly maintained. I used it for my mac as a backup and had a tough time when it got conked. No options in the market, so thinking to buy this again. They should be giving 5 years of warranty and give free service if anything is wrong. Hope they hear to this and take an action on this. Not sure how good is WD, but I believe both are manufactured by the same company.
I had a bad experience with it
By Navjit Singhon
I had a bad experience with it. Returned it after 2 days of use. When I was backing up my 300 gb drive to it, after an hour it became extremely hot and the transfer speeds literally dropped to as low as 0 kbps and didn't go beyond 100 kbps at max. I removed it let it cool down and tried again but to no use. To be honest the drive is slim and looks beautiful in pictures and in hand too but it is really flimsy. It feels cheap and you can actually feel the plastic bending. Maybe it will work for you but didn't work for me. I have seen WD's Ultra passport and that felt very sturdy than this one.
Product number mismatch
By Yogesh Sharmaon
Product number (PN) on HDD does not match with the Product Number on the box packing.
By Rajeev Shrivastavaon
Not working properly, it's not good idea to buy Seagate. I may not suggest to go for it. The major problem arrives when you copy or transfer any file to disc. So I wonder, if don't copy files, what for this storage.
