      I already own one of these Seagate 1 TB drives. I like the portability, ease of use and amount of data it holds. I carry it with me back and forth between the house and the office. This time I went ahead and purchased 2 extras drives to supplement my cloud storage for my large files: music and photos. I wanted to be able to keep a copy of those files away from home in case of a catastrophic occurrence. Relying only on the cloud is not very good when you're talking about large files, such as music (nearly 40,000 songs and growing) and photos (over 30,000 originals; some in DNG format). Now, I'm confident that recovering those precious files will be easy, if I have to get them back in a hurry.

      The product works very well, however, it does not work as easily as my previous one. I use to simply connect it and it would back up automatically. This one I have to go one by one and move each one independently into the appropriate folder. It stores them perfectly, but it much more work than before.

        While I've always been a fan of the G-Tech mobile drives, the Seagate Slim is smaller and, well, slimmer, than all others. About the size of an iPhone 5s. Perfect for backing up still/video files in the field or for archiving. USB3 connectivity makes the transfers fast.

                This is the third Seagate external drive that I have and they all still work well. I use them to store and back up image files. However, I have not been a big fan of the Seagate Dashboard backup software that comes on them. This drive is compact, nice looking, and convenient to take with you. It is also quiet.

                                      I take this with me and use it as a Time Capsule to back up my MacBook Air files. Syncs right up with the laptop - little to no set-up required.

                                      Very compact and durable, But very confusing to set up for Mac OS.

                                          use it to backup documents related to my line of work specifically video TS files, .mov files, .jpeg files, & .pdf's works as expected. The size is mind blowing considering the last 1TB drive that I purchased and considering the 4TB desktop version that I sometimes carry. love the finish and how it fits nicely into a pocket in my zippered portfolio no need to buy a case.

                                                Use as a MBP time machine BU. Took 1 minute to format with disk utility. Reliable, fast and quiet. Just what I needed. Ordering another one now.

                                                  First, it's thin and compact. Second, the Silver is sleek. The device is easy to use, store and transfer data from even with a Chromebook. We were able to take 150GB of files and connect to the Chromebook so the user could work with them from their Chromebook. I'm on a MAC. It's totally portable and easy to use. I own a black one as well. It's a great product. No one had it for the price that B&H did. No drawbacks at all.
