So poor in fact that I almost took it back when I opened the box .. but persevered.
Speed is fine, had it for over 12 months now maybe even 18 months, gets used for watching movies and doesn't go to sleep on pause which is a problem with some other drives.
Seagate always made great hard drives and thats what used to be inside the portable drive cases when you opened them up. This one I think comes from the generation where the platters are literally spinning inside this box with no other protection.
Would I buy another one ... sure if there was no comparable alternative (price) could they make it any worse or cheaper ... I doubt it !!
As a veteran from the computer industry I say
"Shame on You Seagate"
