      I already had a Seagate 1TB "Expansion" drive. With it I can backup my files (weekly) but it takes about an hour to do so.

      With this Backup, you select the types of files you want to backup and it's instant. As soon as I edit a photo, it's updated on Backup. Then I do an occasional copy to the expansion drive for redundancy. It's plug and play, so very little setup involved, other than downloading the dashboard software and selecting your preferences.

      Standard configuration is USB3, but the possibility to convert to Firewire / Thunderbolt makes this tiny powerhouse a great deal!

                    I use the drive to back up my images. I actually ordered two and one did not work out of the box - I attribute that to simply a bad sample. The other one works fine and I am seeking a swap of the one that didn't work for another of the same product. B&H took it back no questions asked and is sending a new one.

                            I bought this specifically so I can easily work off of and transfer files from both Mac and Windows computers. It was quick and easy to set up. The only disappointing thing is that the dual software (if you want to use it on both Windows and Mac) is not compatible with Mac Time Machine. I was planning to use Time Machine, but I guess now I will just have to manually back-up my files.

                              I had not backed up my computer for years. It took a while but I am very happy to have all of my info backed up.I bought the case also so it is easy to keep track of everything. I like that it does not need it's own power cord.

                                            I've actually bought a few of these over the years, and this one is the best yet: it's slimmer and faster than the models of a year ago, even.

                                                This is my portable backup drive and is literally with me everyday. I am a professional photographer and I keep all my personal photos/videos on it as well as all documents that I need from day to day. I'm on a Mac platform, the drive mounts quickly and transfers are very fast. Currently I don't use the social media dashboard feature.

                                                  I use this product to back up all of my files on my PC. It does this well, was easy to install, and the programable periodic auto backup is great.
                                                  I may buy another for other applications.
