          So far this drive is performing outstanding. It's versatility to utilize different connectivity technologies makes it awesome.
          The only reason it didn't get 5 stars is because Seagate taunts it as a USM drive for their Business NAS, since that product turned out to be absolutely deplorable and got sent back for refund (after three repair RMA's) the USM "feature" is useless.

            I already own two Seagates - a 500g and a 750g. I'm starting to shoot a lot of video and will not store it on my MacBook. I purchased the 1TB for its storage capacity. They all work beautifully.

            This is my second Seagate Backup Plus device. I have the thunderbolt add-on module and use it for maximum speed.

            This device has been flawless. Never had an error with it, and it is incredibly portable.

            I purchased this unit for backing up my photo files.

            I plan to purchase a couple more soon.........5 stars from me.

            Comments about Seagate 1TB Backup Plus Portable Drive USB 3.0 (Red):

            It took a while to back up the system and files of the subject volume (about 240 GB of 1 TB). The Memeo software installed on my other portable Seagate drive came with it and works much quicker and the user interface is great. I wonder why the subject product uses the "old style" backup software. I took one star away for its user interface.

              I searched for the most cost effective 1TB, USB 3.0, portable hard drive and arrived here. This drive is exactly what I needed for backing up files and for storing pictures and other media off of my laptop. One thing I love about the included backup software is that it simply copies your files and file structure, rather than converting or compressing them. It makes it very easy to manually recover something.Pros:*Best Price*Silent and cool*Software is useful and easy to use*Fast*Not a factor for me, but good looks*Option for Firewire or Thunderbolt adapterCons:*included USB 3.0 may be too short for some setups. (1.5ft)*finish attracts dust
