    I needed extra backup for my large video files, and this 2tb hard drive works flawlessly! Seagate makes great products, and this hard drive doesn't disappoint in performance. The only problem I have is the hard drive must be plugged into the wall, and is a bit on the big side. Maybe should have spent the extra bucks to get the portable hard drive. I am using this exclusively with my desktop, so portability isn't a big issue. If you want a quick hard drive on the go, I'd suggest the portable version as you don't need to plug it into a wall socket, but for those who don't need the portability, save the extra bucks and get this drive!Would have been five stars if I didn't need external power. On another note, I didn't realize I bought the PC version. Luckily formatting this drive for my Mac was quick and easy!

              Hard to not give it 5 stars. Plugged it in and it works... I partitioned to 2 drives for 2 separate 1TB backups. Great having it all in one physical place.

                    As a full-time wedding photographer I need LOTS of storage space. I also need it to be fast and most importantly stable. I purchased this drive in the middle of wedding season when I noticed my current drive was already near capacity! I had to transfer over all of 2014 to this new drive so that I could have a dedicated drive for this year only. It worked like a dream. I will definitely purchase another one for 2015.

                        This is the 4th one I've bought, and they all work fine so far. Buying the same model allows me to use the same power adapter for each one, minimizing the number of plugs that need to be used. Each one worked from the start, just plug in and use. Only drawback is that the model doesn't have a power on and off button; but for the low price it's a small thing.

                              This is an ideal external sotrage unit for those of us who like to clutter the desktop and creat problems for ourselves. The unit provides fast transfer and has a small footprint which make it very attractive. While the unit is performing well at this time, one has to wonder what the minimal guarantee portends.

                                      It's fast, easy to set up, and has a lot of space. I'm not exactly amazed by the design, but nonetheless, this drive is really helpful in terms of storage. I would definitely recommend this device to anyone, as it is at a very reasonable price for 2 TB.
