I am a big fan of the seagate drives, the ones where the base connects into the drive- as you can remove the hard drive part and add what ever drive you want, so for example a friend comes over with a broken laptop, you can pull out the drive and stick it on the seagate dock and immediately access the files, it's a great system because although they run about £10 more than a similar sized usb 3 drive, you get a usb 3 basically for free- which is about a £30 value so it makes sense to get this if you ever think you might be into swapping drives. It means I can access all my various hard drives with super speedy usb 3.
talking of speed this drive is screaming fast- the 3tb drive (think it's 7200rpm) clocked in at 164mB/s which is very fast indeed
build quality is high on the drive, it's plastic, and a bit of a dust/fingerptint/scratch magnet, but quality is high and it even looks great
It includes a rather short USB 3 cable, it is fine for a laptop with the drive sitting on the desk, but if you need to plug it into a computer that's positioned far underneath your desk you might not have the length to do so, so you might need to look into an extension, or get a longer cable
overall i'm very happy with the drive's performance and the whole concept of the 'go flex' range- excellent drives
