    As a user of MacBook Airs and MacBook Pros with SSD internal drives, I've been using external hard drives to archive large files and Time Machine back ups, but the larger capacities were FAT (12.5 vs. 9.5mm). This is the first decent size external bus-powered hard drive that is a 9.5mm thick drive, allowing for a very slim 1/2" high external case. And luckily, due to the higher areal density, it is actually FASTER than my old fat 1.5 TB hard drive. I benchmarked the old drive at 85.3 MB/s write and 89.8 MB/s, the 2TB Seagate Backup Plus drive at 105.6 and 108.5 MB/s, respectively: 23.8% faster write and 20.8% faster read speeds.

    I can't ask for any more for a laptop external backup drive.

    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.

            I nearly lost 250 gigs of treasured photos and artwork on my old MacG4 tower recently. Because the price is so good and Mac users (as well as PC-ers) seem confident with this little Seagate Slim, we managed to back it all up (twice!) and have it set up to automatically back up via Time Machine so I won't lose data. I hear these don't give out often, so feel confident of being covered for the future remaining 1.5T ! Great price and fast free shipping, so thank you, B&H.

                        The little red drive was a cinch to use -- Just plug it in and the operating system finds it and lists it as an available device. We wanted a drive that was compatible with Apple and Windows. This beauty was it. We are using it to backup family photos. I'm also tired of looking for the right drive, so the red was a nice option. The drive came with a cable too. The price is good for the drive size. The piece of mind for an off-site portable backup is priceless.

                              Using this drive for computer backup and for large photo collection. Have had Seagate's earlier versions, and they continue to get smaller and faster in backup. Very satisfied--my second 2TB drive. No negatives that I've seen.

                                I love this external hard drive. Its incredibly compact for its memory capacity and very sleek. I appreciate the mobile backup option, and once you download the Seagate dashboard (on Mac) you can access everything pretty easily.

                                It's not expensive. It's good for PC user who may sometimes use MAC. but as I'm a mac user and the school also use mac. It's not convenient to download software every time I use other mac.

                                  This hard drive works great and is a well built product from Seagate. The finish on the outer case looks really good. The transfer rates are good.

                                    I bought it as a backup drive to store my photos that I take while on travel. The device is very slim and compact, which is handy when you need to minimize space for carrion luggage. Reliability is crucial for this type of application. I have only used it for one month, which is not enough to make a final verdict, but so far so good, no issues.

                                    This 2TB Portable External USB HD by Seagate is the best I ever owned/used. It's so less stressful because it is compatible with MAC and PC. It has a fast data transfer speed and it's durable.

                                      I have installed internal drives and purchased external drives for institutional Macs for many years. (Remember back when 'they' said storage will never go below $/MB ... heh.) I have always preferred Seagate drives for reliability. Great price for a 2TB drive. Performs great. Looks nice. Blazing fast B&H shipping.

                                        I bought the drive for a customer to provide them with large video clips of a project and since they work on PC and I work in Mac, the Seagate was perfect since it comes compatible with both operating systems and no formatting needed.

                                          Set-up and initial uses have gone as advertised. No problems, or wishes for changes. I really love the compactness and the color really helps to distinguish between similar drives I have.
