    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.

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

      I bought this to replace a bulkier external HDD. I love it's size, how quiet it is and the speed. It looks great on my desk and doesn't take up much room at all. Plus if I want to travel, it looks like it'll fit no problem in a bag. So far no complaints!

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

        I began by purchasing a single drive for home use to store pictures and personal documents on my MacBook Pro. It's size and portability convinced me to purchase an additional drive for use with Apple's Time Machine backup software.

        I was so pleased with the ease of use and lack of power cord/brick that when I needed to evaluate my backup strategy at work (I'm the prepress manager of a commercial printing company) that I purchased 6 drives to implement our backup strategy.

        Couldn't be more pleased.

            I needed a hard drive to back up my files via time machine.

            What works: it's nice slim, travel size, and has 2TB so that's good enough for just a back up. its USB 3 so it works faster. And honestly it looks beautiful.

            What doesn't work: Even though HDD says it works with a mac. My computer couldn't copy any files over, even after I installed the program that came w it. I have a new mac pro laptop. So I had to put the HDD on disk utility to wipe it out completely so its MAC friendly.

              I've been a fan of small external drives for years. They are handy to carry on trips to store files, video and photos.

              This Seagate drive is among the best, in my opinion. A solid performer. Extremely quiet operation.

                            why not include back up instructions?

                            the most frustrating thing about backup devices is they never include instructions on how to actually back them up. i had to consult apple to figure it out. it works well, once i learned how to use it.

                                I have a few of these drives and they work great. They are very slim and lightweight. Easy to bring into the field. So far, they have been very reliable. They're also a good price!I did subtract 1 star for durability. Compared to the LaCie rugged drives, they are not quite as accident proof. However, I think the price difference still makes them a good option.

                                        It's not a lacie rugged but for 2 TB and under $[$]you can't beat that. I can speak for how durable the disk inside is but overall it has a nice sleek and professional design. I wouldn't trust 2TB of data only on this - buy two and keep both back ups.
