      I use this HD for two things: 1) I not only back up my complete iMAC system to it every night at midnight, but I also have made this drive bootable so if I have a main HD failure on my iMAC, I can not only boot from the Seagate drive, but have access to all of my programs. Time Machine used for backup for MACs is not a bootable drive. and 2) Being shirt pocket size, it is the perfect travel HD for staying backed up on the road and having something to upload my photos to.

      NOTE: The drive comes formatted for a PC and must be reformatted for use with an Apple computer. It is a fast, easy process with the utilities to accomplish the task supplied by the manufacturer.

      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.

                  Comments about 1TB Backup Plus Slim Portable External USB 3.0 Hard Drive (Blue):

                  I chose this portable drive mainly because of reliability and that it can be used on both Mac and Windows at the same time without additional reformatting. I have had some problem with other external HDs where it only worked on one or the other because of the predetermined format, and it would have to be reformatted for other purposes. Seagate also includes a very user friendly and straight forward application that can be helpful for those who are not using Mac Time Machine for backups. In terms of design, I love the minimalist, and sleek look of the drive.

                    I got this drive as a back-up for my older iMac with a USB 2 connection. I have only had it a few days but it installed easily and works well with Time Machine. It sits right on my desk and is completely quiet. The only drawback is that the USB cable that came with it is extremely short — only about 14 inches, but this is minor.

                          I use my external hard drives for storing all my high resolution film scans and working TIFF files (many Photoshop layers) that quickly build up storage. The Seagate 1 TB Backup Plus Slim is indeed compact and sleek, fast and easy to use. I mainly use my hard drives on Macs, but upon initial setup I chose to format the drive for both PC and Mac (in case I wanted to use it on the PCs at work). This posed a problem however- my Mac was unable to recognize the drive. But the problem was solved after a quick partition (instructions found on internet). I have no reason to backup social media, so I can't speak to that feature but overall it's easy to use and reliable!

                            I use this for storage for all of our family pictures, kids art projects and sensitive personal documents. The case is smaller and slimmer than expected which is great. The case has a solid build. My only complaint is the USB 3.0 attachment to the unit. The 3.0 seems flimsy, and doesn't seem to fit solidly into the unit. I am concerned about this bending eventually, even with careful use. HOWEVER, I feel this way about ALL USB 3.0 attachments. I am not a fan of the sturdiness of the design, but it does transfer info noticeably faster.

                              This is not my first Seagate product so I was pretty familiar with their Back Up Drives going in. It is simply amazing to get a 1TB drive for so little $$. I was especially keen that this device was already formatted for MAC.So far so good although I have barely scratched the surface on my use of this. Very easy to get going and nice fit and finish. I highly recommend.

                                    we use extra hard drives to free up space on our computer hard drive, and since we render video, we fill up that space fast. the 3.0 Seagate hard drives are fast for transfering 14GB files, especially nice when you are making duplicate backups to multiple drives. their small size allows you to easily fit several on the desk at a time. and for B&H's low price, it's great to be able to afford several! :-)
