  • A complete waste of money

    from Halifax, NS on 3 décembre 2019

    Bought a Seagate 4 TB hub to use with my Mac laptop and time machine. It linked up effortlessly, and started backing up my data seemingly without a problem. First clue my first impressions were flawed: to back up 350 Gbyte of data took twelve *hours*; a "blistering" 8.1 MB/s. Scaling up to the entire disc capacity of 4 TB, it would take six *weeks* to fill the disc with data. It wasn't my Mac's fault: my Mac habitually transfers data to my university department's mainframe (if anyone still uses that term) back and forth at 150 MB/s, almost 20 times the speed of the Seagate. Who designs a disc with 4 TB of storage and a transfer rate appropriate for a 100 GB disc?? Apparently Seagate does. Then, after 5 weeks of use with time machine, the disc fried. Nothing special. No power surge, I never disconnected the disc before dismounting it. It just suddenly announced it was "read only", and then not even; I couldn't access more than half my data. I *babied* it for five weeks, and it still fried. Before buying, I did what I could to research available external hard drives. Seagate had a 4.7 star rating, with most of the positives apparently from folks who wanted to back up their photos once in a while. Evidently, this disc worked just fine for them. But the few reports coming from serious users were scathing and, stupidly, I ignored them, favouring the overwhelming number of good reports from the "photo jockeys". Don't bother with this piece of junk. If you are at all a serious computer user who needs a reliable and serious back-up capacity, it's a complete waste of silicone and plastic. To add insult to injury, when I took this boat anchor back to Best Buy, they dared suggest that it couldn't be returned because the 30-day "grace period" had passed. I gave them a scowl that would have withered the Ice King, and she came back saying "this time only, they would refund my money." Big of them, I'm sure. I was not impressed.
