Seagate at its best
By Arani Majumderon
Flipkart delivered the product well within time, and in an excellent packaging.
It's larger and heavier than I had expected, bigger than any portable hard disk. It comes with an universal adapter, that can fix all your voltage needs. The Hard disk's ventilated at the bottom and behind. There's just two ports- USB and power- pretty neat! There's a tiny blue light on the top that blinks when you transfer data. Also the USB 3.0 cable provided is long enough to reach the back of your CPU. Overall, design's pretty neat.
Once connected, the device installs itself without a hassle. You do get to choose to install the additional (unnecessary) software though. I got 2.7 TB storage space (NTFS). I currently don't have any USB 3.0 ports, but here's the test results of read and write (using a USB 2.0 port):
Read-> 28.60 MB/s(Sequential), 28.09 MB/s(Random)
Write-> 21.1 MB/s (Sequential), 26.59 MB/s(Random)
Pros: Speed, space, value for money.
Cons: Bulky, not portable.
This is the perfect product I needed to expand my space. This is a must (an probably only) buy for anyone looking for a 3TB storage space.
I ordered this product last year (2012) on Dhanteras. As usual, Flipkart was quick with the delivery and I had this in my hand in 2 days. time.
After using it for a few months, it gave away on 1 June 2013. The sectors were no longer readable by the computer and a LOT of data was lost. After giving it to a Seagate techie for a checkup, I was told that the head was dislocated and was also informed that this was a design defect with this particular hard drive model. This dislocation had caused damages to the internals and the disk itself had a big scratch.
After experiencing this, I don't think I will ever use a Seagate product again. Buy at your own risk. Frankly, it's a waste of money. I'd recommend buying a Western Digital product over this. I know they are costlier, but it's better to shell out a thousand more and save yourself the trouble of losing data. Trust me, it hurts.
Hats off to Flipkart! And why not they really take care of their customers.
Received this product wrapped in safely with transit insurance and 3 years Seagate limited waranty!
First, you notice that the look of typical Seagate is missing. It comes with a black matte finish instead of Seagate's default shiny piano black. The reason being to avoid fingerprints, says Seagate. However you never regret the look anyway.
This product includes a power adapter with four interchangeable pins to fit the wall sockets of literally any country!
The length of cables is sufficient.
Usable disk space is 2.72TB with NTFS file system.
Used the disk continuously for about 5 hours of Read/Write, fortunately its cold and calm.
Data read speed reached up to 32MBps on USB 2.0/eSata port.
No power save mode that means when power goes off, it takes off breath!
I received this product with some preloaded software but couldn't install them.
Overall its is a better option for those who love to store lots of data forever.
Update after using it for 3 years :
It houses all my data, all my life's work is in there. At first I was skeptic about it reading the reviews of other users. But it's reliable all along.
I's bulky and needs to be placed static always. It's not like the WD Pasport which is very small and comfortable to have it in your pockets. This Seagate is nearly 4 times of that of WD Passport.
The packing arrived with the usual Flipkart awesomeness and trust, kudos to that..
Quite like the new matte finish look on this HDD, and it also ships with 4 power adapter options : Asia, US, UK and India..
There is some propitiatory software on it, but i didnt bother with it and deleted the whole partition to create 4 new ones..
But here's the catch, for some reason Win 7 does allow your to use more then 2TB of space because of it's MBR default settings for partitions...
You need to do it GBT settings to get the full 2.7 TB on Windows Device Manager..or use a Third Party Disk Management software to format your HDD like EaseUS..
All in all very very happy with the product..
Took flipkart about 8 days to deliver(Apparently it got shipped from Mumbai to bangalore and not from bangalore itself,still 8 days from mumbai?)...now that doesn't happen always. I had to email their customer care to have it delivered after the delivery date passed. However received the Hard Disk in good shape and packing.
For 9k-something it is a good bargain for me..
Needs external power(loses a star for that) and is quite big and heavy(not very portable). But serves my purpose of as a backup mule while I carry my 500GB around. Also comes with US and European plug points.
Does not have the glossy finish like my 500Gb but who cares..Data transfers fast could not test the usb3 yet as my ancient laptop does not have usb3 port. Took about an hour to transfer 100Gb of my movie stash from my 500gb to this one.
You get about 2.72Tb dtorage space..
Its titled as portable by flipkart while the package include AC adapter. Its not portable.
Fix it flipkart!
