I have a list of pros and cons, (pro: ease of use; con: SLOW) but at this point it is meaningless-- only one data point is salient. This Seagate Central product stopped responding in less than a year (google: green flashing light of death) and all of its data is not retrievable by normal means. Seagate offered its "in-lab" data retrieval services for ~$500, in addition to the normal warranty replacement drive.
As a single drive, it offers no protection against drive failure, which according to Backblaze ([...]) occurs in Seagate drives (ranges up to 25.4% ANNUALLY) significantly more often than in Hitatchi or Western Digital drives.
While many customers will be happy with their $220 purchase, another not-insignificant percent of you may end up paying $720 for your $220 drive.
I would not recommend this product due to its failure issues.
The worst part about this is I read the negative reviews here a year ago, but still bought it hoping they weren't true. Folks, listen to the critical reviews here, this many people having the exact same kind of problems just cannot be an "end user" issue. For the record, I have always defending Seagate products from friends who want to trash them (usually from catastrophic hard drive failures). I have never had a bad experience with their products until now, but this is one is really bad. Save your money.
