    I've had 4 of these drives going for a couple of years now to back up everything I have. No issues whatsoever.


  • 2 Drives. 1 DOA.

    I bought 2 of these. I was DOA. I waited 6 weeks to find this out as I was working out of town. This means no BestBuy return and dealing with Seagate directly. Not great. Youve gotta ship the thing back at your own expense and they send you a refurbed unit. A lousy deal for sure. I wont be dealing with Seagate products again.


  • Huge data storage is so crucial to my work

    Its better and safer to store on the massive 8TB Hard Drive than pay for cloud.
