          Use this drive for photo storage as a backup to an older GoFlex model. I use both a PC laptop and an IMAC desktop so having a flexible external drive is a must.

            It backs up with ease. Nice small size. It is a drive, so hope it lasts and it is a Seagate, which may be a con.

              Comments about Seagate 2TB Backup Plus Slim Portable External USB 3.0 Hard Drive (Black):

              Bought this after looking at the review on wirecutter's website. Undoubtedly the best external hard drive I have had till date. The compact size (slightly broader and thicker than an iphone in my opinion)and no need for external power are the biggest plus. I have had seagate external hard drives before and the previous one has still been going strong for over 5 years, expect the same from this.

              I use this to store my pictures, and since it is small, I am able to take it with me. So far all is OK.
