    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 (Blue):

      I have been using Seagate external hard drives for over 7 years. When I got down to a level that I was not comfortable with, when I saw this drive and how much slimmer it was and that I did not have to plug it in to an electrical outlet, I jumped at the opportunity to buy it.

      I use the hard drive to for my pictures following the advice of many of having multiple drives, but this is great to take along with me on those trips I take for the items on my "bucket list" in life. At night when I get back to the hotel, I can put my pictures on this external hard drive and have a fresh card to use in my camera the next day. Then when I get home, I can attach the hard drive to my desktop and process my pictures.

          This is an excellent high capacity external hard drive. I have it partitioned - backup for my MacBook Air and the other partition for photos.

          I high recommend.

              I have an online webstore, I have to backup product photos, and html pages. Plus, I take allot of photos in New York City, for fun, and put some on my site. I've used Seagate external hard drives before, but didn't have enough disk space, on the one I had. So, I needed to get a bigger one. My Computer guy, recomended I stay with Seagate. Online sites gave this model a good review, and rating.

                  I own a few of these and replaced my larger hard drives with them. They take up very little space and you don't need an AC adapter- they run off USB. I bought another slim portable hard drive brand initially, but found the Seagates were smaller so switched to them.

                  Well, it does what its supposed to do as of a month after the purchase. This is my first external HD. I bought it to back up dvd movies and photos. It's surprisingly fast. Fast enough anyways. I transferred 3 movies to the hard drive so far. I was expecting a much longer transfer time. I did play a movie from this external hard drive with no issues or hiccups whatsoever. I have an HP Zbook 15 with a quadro k610n video card.. So my computer is fast... so that helps. About B&H... Surprisingly, shipping was so much faster than [@]. Very much on par with [@].. maybe faster. You have a new customer... as long as the prices are right. I will always include B&H in my online shopping searces. Thanks!

                            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.

                                        I call to Seagate service and they explain me that I have to format the disk first, and you cannot use it as a PC and MAC at the same time

                                              Very Disappointed. Found out I have to send it to Mexico for warranty. This is going to cost more than the drive is worth. The only option is to put it in the e-waste bin for recycling. I bought 3 Seagate drives recently. I have lost confidence them all.
