I've had two of Seagate's "expansion portable" drives (not this exact model, but the portable version--the same external look though.)One had 1TB storage capacity, the other 500GB. The 1TB started ejecting itself more and more often after two months of use (despite energy saving being set to "off"). I was very careful with this hard drive, and the drive was not being moved when this happened.The other--my own fault, of course--was dropped from about 1m (3.3 feet) and its usb port broke (I removed the case and it looks like it's a cracked solder joint where the cable is connected.) The drive itself is probably Ok, but I can't access it as it is.

Not pleased at all
Strengths: Design, portability
After years of being a complete Seagate fan, I purchased my first external drive. It worked fine for less than two weeks and then began making a cracking noise. I managed to retrieve my information in time. I changed it for the exact same model, this time it worked fine for a couple of months, then the cracking began and a few days later, it was impossible to recover the data.What happened with these guys? Yesterday I took the 1Tb model out of the box, brand new, and no machine was able to detect it.

Nice, small and great value
Strengths: Overall size and price
This is my second Western Digital portable hard drive purchase and must say i don't see much difference overall outside of the convenience in size killer price. Great for throwing into backpack or duffel bag going back and forth to work or school.
