Only USB 2.0 but still a great deal. Thanks!

Great deal, but I'm reading very horrible reviews across a multitude of sites.

If you buy this, download the Seagate FreeAgent utility to avoid problems.

Price is awesome, but I saw some very scary reviews - brand new drives that make clicking noises and freeze up. I'm not sure I want to risk it.

Anyone have any personal experience with this model?

I had one die on me in less than a year

So I read the reviews about the clickity clackity drive issue. From one reviewer on Amazon, he determined the issue is with the PCA board in the drive enclosure - not the drive itself. So if you get one of these great deals, worse case scenario is you have to buy a new drive enclosure ($10-20) to put the raw drive into. Wish me luck!

I'm surprised this ended up with more complaints about it being a Seagate than about it being sold by BestBuy.

@cbriggi: Interesting! I'll have to find mine and pop the drive out and see if it works. The 'click of death' was very annoying

I have a Seagate Expansion 1 TB USB 3.0 Desktop External Hard Drive and have had no problems with it. The problems with reading reviews is that someone who has problems with an item is more likely to leave a review than someone who has no problems. I don't put much stock in reviews anymore. I realize if it's on the internet it has to be true though.
