CNET editor Dong Ngo wants you to keep everything you have to fill up the speedy 5TB Seagate Backup Plus Desktop external hard drive for yourself, ’cause there are things he just doesn’t want to know. Or maybe the truth is he, like usual, already knows it!

    I never had an external harddrive. And i want to invest in this one. Will it last forever? I mean the memory.

    The drive in this review has a light that indicates power. That's it.

    Seagate has chosen to save 5¢ on each unit, by excluding an activity light. So the drive shows no indication of whether or not it is in use (data being read from it or written to it).

    — So, for example, if you are backing up your laptop, and close the cover…
    — Or, if you are backing up your desktop PC, and your screen saver blanks your screen…
    You have no idea whether or not your backup (or restore) has completed. You have to "wake up" your monitor in order to check.

    And how about if some errant program is scurrying around, doing who knows what, on your external drive?
    How would you know?

    If your external drive had an activity light, and your computer was sitting idle (or so you thought), and the light was blinking, well then you would know to check on what was running.

    Although Seagate drives offer good performance, so do Western Digital drives… and Western Digital drives include an activity light. Both companies have comparable pricing.
    Other companies, too (LaCie, Buffalo, etc) also offer external drives that include an activity light.

    So I am done with Seagate.

    Are there 2 HDDs in RAID-0 inside like in previous Seagate 4TB drives? What is R/W speed? It could be around 250MB/s if there are 2 HDDs inside.

    Excuse me if this has been asked previously, but the drive comes with only 4.54 terabytes and 369 gigabytes used, but what uses the 369 gigabytes???  the software on it and hidden files do not even add up to a single gig
