    The very best thing about this little hard drive is that it is made by Seagate. They are well known for their high quality, and durable products. I will pay more for a Seagate drive even when other brands are "ON SALE". I need the most dependable drives because I use these to store my pictures on. Both at home, and when travelling. The rule of thumb is to have two back-ups of your valuable, can not replace photos. I make sure I am using Seagate drives for both of them. I choose to use hard drives while travelling because they are MUCH cheaper than a big pile of CF memory cards. On a recent trip to Europe, my wife and I ended up with almost 600Gb of pictures. That many CF cards would have cost $1000,00 or more. Instead, I only took 4 CF cards and transferred the images at night, so I always had fresh memory cards. This method worked out wonderfully for us, and when using a laptop to transfer the images, one can also review the images more easily. I have considered the newer type solid state memory drives, but the expense is just too great at this time. Seagate also has one of the very best warranties as well.

    Good product on Mac ... Eventually

    Cool looking. And OK once you get it to work with a Mac. The package says, "Use between Mac and PC." Not easy or obvious how to make that happen. ...Read complete review

    Cool looking. And OK once you get it to work with a Mac. The package says, "Use between Mac and PC." Not easy or obvious how to make that happen. Great tech support from Seagate however, if you have the patience to work through it. If you are strictly PC or don't care about cross-platform use, give it another star.

        Recently,when I saw that Seagate was discounting a 2TB Slim External storage device for $ dollars, it was a no brainer. You can stick this baby in your coat pocket while you are traveling, and never even notice its there. Oh, and it's USB 3 which is backward compatible. Its fast and reliable. Very quite.

            These are wonderful in that these are reliable back-up storage EHDs that are metal encased. Furthermore, these are very reasonably priced and relatively large capacity drives.

                      Seagate responded to my inquiry about backup, however they added info I didn't understand. I can drag 'n drop my computer HD to copy all but that way I can not reboot, must be done with reformatting NTFS or HFS. Anybody know what that means ?

                            This drive is a real work horse, Its beauty is enhanced by its ablity to be used on a Mac or PC with out reformating. Just switch from one to another easy as that.
