Size: 2 TBColor: Black Verified Purchase
Hard to go wrong here. If you are using this as an external drive, this product has 2TB in very small space and is USB powered. The drive itself only takes 0.7-2.3W to operate! On Mac OSX 10.9.2 running the included Paragon NTFS driver, I was able to see write rates in 8-10 MB/sec with USB 2.0. On a Windows 7 Machine I averaged 18 MB/Sec; 14 MB/sec running the latest 8.1 update.

I pulled the drives from two of these units (instructions below - photos to be added soon) for use in my laptop. This product is the only way I know of to obtain the 9.5mm tall, 2.5-in 2T Samsung Spinpoint M9T drive(s). Note: the 2TB version has 1 drive, the 4TB has 2 drives. After installing them in my laptop (has 3 internal HDD bays with SATA connections, 1st bay has OS, apps, etc. on 500GB SSD), I tested data txfr speeds. I moved 1.5 TB of data from one drive to another with average speeds of 194 MB/Sec in Windows 8.1. Laptop now has 4.5 TB of hard drive capacity.

Have also successfully installed one in a PS4! Next project will be to install one in a Macbook Pro. Great way to get a lot of internal storage space for little money (Purchased early April 2014 for $103.99 directly from Amazon with 2-day Prime shipping).

Removal Instructions (WARNING -THIS WILL VOID YOUR WARRANTY - BUYER BEWARE):
1. Obtain small, flat-bladed screw driver and gently insert between the aluminum top and the plastic bottom.
2. Rotate screwdriver slightly to pry the top off. At this point slide the screwdriver around the perimeter and the top will come off.
3. Once the top is off, you will see the top of the internal drive. Carefully remove from the plastic lower without prying or subjecting the drive to significant shock. It is easiest to remove by lifting the side opposite the USB connector.

Size: 1 TBColor: Black
I was satisfied with this slim drive until it failed within the first 3 months of using it. And my patience has been tested since then. I've been trying to get another one under my warranty but it's been almost 2 weeks since the first time I tried to get hold of the seagate customer service and I still have not received a new one!!
The wait on the phone is ridiculously long. The first time I called them, I was on hold for over an hour to talk to someone briefly. More than a week ago, the manager talked to me saying that a new one would finally be shipped to me. When I called them again after waiting for more than a week, I was told that it hasn't been shipped. And every time I talk to a customer rep, they blame on system update.
I'm thinking about just not getting warranty and switching to another brand. I feel like even if I get a new seagate drive, it will fail again and I don't want to waste my time doing this again.

இ Fuzzy Wuzzy's Summary:
ѾѾѾѾѾ Highly recommended with warm fuzzies!

փ Positives:

փ This hard drive is indeed very slim, with its 9.5mm thickness being comparable to an internal laptop hard drive.
փ The read/write transfer speeds are pretty fast for a 5400-RPM hard drive (but performance will feel slower if you are accustomed to using 7200-RPM drives).
փ By installing a Windows or Mac driver, you can use either the Windows or Mac version of this drive on both Windows and Mac computers, which is great for transferring files in between both platforms.
փ This drive comes in 500-GB, 1-TB, 2-TB, and 4-TB capacities with different color options for the top metal panel.

ჯ Negatives:

ჯ While the Seagate Dashboard software that is pre-loaded on the hard drive includes very useful and flexible backup software, the other two parts of the software to share files to social media sites and save files from social media sites are limited in their usefulness and flexibility.
ჯ If you are relying on the Seagate Dashboard software to backup all of your user files, such as documents and emails, Dashboard will not backup hidden files, so you need to unhide all folders and files in your C:\Users\ folder by unchecking the folders' or files' "Hidden" property attribute.

With a thickness of 9.5mm for the 500-GB drive, this very portable little drive is only slightly thicker than an iPhone or pencil, and its thickness is comparable to many internal laptop/notebook drives. But while 9.5mm-thick internal laptop drives do not have an external case covering them, this drive is housed inside an attractive anodized aluminum metal case, with a plastic bottom base, that gives it a solidly rigid feel to the drive.

I had this drive for a year before it failed. Seems very common - I can only assume all the 5 star reviews are people who JUST got it, but I'm curious how many of those people still have functioning drives. I know I was impressed when I first got it.

This is the second Seagate drive to fail on me after less than a year of use; any reasonable person would conclude that Seagate products are unreliable, and Seagate company policy depends too much on promoting their ability to potentially fix the issue (for a fee) rather than prevent it in the first place. They know these drives will fail, that is why there is a "Limited" warranty, not a "Lifetime" warranty.

Find a different product, save yourself the outrage that will occur when 1TB of your files become a hostage of Seagate - you can MAYBE get them back, if you pay more than twice what the drive itself cost you.

Furthermore, I know Seagate likes to reply to negative reviews on their products with a stock message. I'm not interested, save yourself the keystrokes.
