Got short circuit after 6 months
By Apoorv Kumaron
It got short circuit after 6 months of medium usage, maybe because I was using it with a different adaptor, at 12V rating. Till then, its working was good. Would recommend to buy 2 1TB hard disks instead of a 2TB hard disk, to ensure data security and convenience in carrier around.
Edit: After the short circuit, it was replaced (yes, not repaired) by Seagate with a brand new adapter & cable (both of which I had lost) without any extra charge. The replacement was made within a weak of submitting it for replacement.
The product description was wrong, it was not a mac compatible hard drive. It said clearly on the product page that it was. Overall the service from flipkart is lousy at best, my job it seems has become only to give them feedback after feedback for all the messups they do. I wont go again detailing the case with this hard drive, but before they delete this review, (just like previous one time, coz they only like good reviews), I'f rather have some people know here, before I share on Twitter, FB and Youtube.. thanks for nothing
well firstly as far as Flipkart and the seller-"WS Retail" is concerned-their packaging & delivery is very good.I got it in 3 days and the packaging is so good and tough that it is quite an effort stripping away everything and getting to the box.
Secondly about the hard disk itself:-
Well the first thing is that this is not a new model from Seagate but its old Expansion model with a new external cover.Personally the finish of this cover is not very good and looks quite blunt and unstylish,the old cover comparatively had much more design,finishing and style and the only negative point was that it had a shiny glossy top which looked very good but attracted dust.
Apart from this,everything is the same.
Seagate is trust worthy.However the thing to remember is that this is the most basic model which should be used only as a warehouse or storage for large amounts of data,it provides 1.81 TB of usable space,satisfactory transfer speeds and longevity,nothing more nothing less.
But don't use it like a slave drive which is always connected with a lot of programmes interacting with it or you working from it.JUST FOR STORAGE.
Thats why these drives are also called Back-Up drives and come with Free versions of Back-Up software which by defination is to be used for taking a big back-up which is to be updated from time to time.
So if your looking for a work-horse then you should consider higher & more expensive models of Seagate.
One thing to remember is-that a computer or any associated device (especially hard disks) is not like a fan or bulb that you can just switch on & off as per your need and convinience BUT it needs both software & hardware maintaince like the human body.
Firstly register the product with Seagate and then do a NTFS Format before starting to load data.Always load data in small chunks (just because its a 1.81tb drive doesn't mean you can or should just use it all in one go and push the Drive too much when its still brand new).
Also always run utility programmes like de-fragmentation & Error-check.etc on your computer and hard disks in order to keep them fresh and healthy.
Flipkart's Prices are quite competitive and in the least its safe to say you won't feel cheated from a deal.
However i advise all customers to do the educated and smart act of utilising your rights as a customer and get independent best price quotes from a few dealers in different sections of your city before selecting the seller as far as price is concerned.(This can easily be done by getting their Phone No.s from services like 'Just Dial' & giving them a call)
As far as the price for this Hard disk is concerned,i found it to be atleast Rs300. cheaper then even the wholesale market dealers were offering.
One must also not forget to factor in the Additional Transportation Cost,Energy Cost (a meal you would want to take after doing the labor of travelling to & from the market) & Time Cost that Flipkart's 'Free' Delivery with CODoption saves.This means I saved Rs.300.+Rs.200.(min cost for time,energy & transport cost)=Rs.500.
HAPPY SHOPPING,FELLOW CUSTOMERS.
it a nice HDD to have plus u have lots of space. So you can have all that downloaded stuff at one place. Works like charm but heavy can carry all time and its not portable coz u need to give it power supply. Good for laptop user at home. I personally recommend this product. Great Flipkart
