Like all seagate drives, the build quality is exceptional. A quiet and really good looking external drive, its performance is exellent. I have had one of these for only a month, but I have 3 other 500gb models on my work network, that have been constantly running for over 8 months now, without a flicker. with the 1 terrabyte model now going for under £100, its really good value for money, especially with the 5 year garauntee.
Its easy to use, just plug into a power outlet, connect the USB, and your up and running.
