STAY AWAY FROM THESE!!!!
As a PC repair shop owner, we see at least 5-10 of these same or similar Seagate external drives come in per week in this smaller city area (less than 100K population in the county). Typically one of 3 things go bad within 1 year: 1. mechanical head, 2. electronics on bottom of drive are not properly protected so they short out when someone picks it up from the sides and squeezes inward, or 3. the smallest power surge/spike shorts out the base taking the drive with it. Seagate refuses to send out just the head itself so the only fix is buy another same model drive and part it out for the head itself and rescue the data, which typically costs as much as the drives new.
