This is another storage solution from Seagate. At $119.00 for two 2Tb it is a pretty good bang for the buck. Seagate says that the drive is automatically recognized by Windows. That is true but it doesn’t mention that it is not immediate. I didn’t time it but it was recognized and useable on XP the quickest, Windows 7 not much longer and Vista substantially longer. Once it was recognized it was almost immediately useable. Since I have no equipment with a USB 3.0 I have no idea how much faster the transfer rate might be. It seemed adequate with USB 2.0.
It does seem faster than the Hitachi, Verbatim and older Seagate USB hard drive that I have.
If reviewing a product, it may have been received free of charge. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
