Works fine with Linux

I purchased the drive to back-up my Linux server. Despite the specification saying only Windows and MAC support, I found on the Seagate website that although not officially supported by Seagate for Linux use, they say their drives should work and indeed I am pleased to say this one works fine.

This is an excellent choice for a fast expansion drive. Easy to use with plug and play feature. This happened to be the first USB 3.0 device I have used and I'm very impressed. Took 2mins to copy a 30GB file.
However, due to 4K sector layout it is not compatible as a backup drive using windows 7 backup utility.

Pros: Fast and affordable
Cons: Not a good Backup drive

Otherwise good product spoilt by cable

I bought this product some time ago and was slightly annoyed that I could not replace the cable due to a non-standard USB cable (the socket on the drive is not standards compliant).

This meant a longer cable could not be purchased later making awkward to use with a laptop unless at a desk.

The cable also proved to be highly temperamental causing the drive to become unavailable at unpredictable times. Within less than one year of purchase this made the drive virtually unusable and seagate refused to supply a new cable suggesting that I replace the drive.

When the cable does work the drive is quick and storage is reliable but accessing the drive is so patchy that it is made of little use.
