Most of the 1 star reviews are with the 3TB version of this. I have the 3TB and it was tricky getting it working due to the fact that Seagate decided to use some kind of drive translation to let the 3TB drives work in Windows XP. This, of course, caused problems.
The 1TB version won't have this issue.
I just checked the Amazon reviews at the op's link. You are correct they are mostly for the 3TB. I wish Amazon would not lump all the reviews for various similar models into one like that it's really misleading!!!!
