            I've only had this hard drive for two weeks, so I cannot yet vouch for reliability, but I will say it was easy to set up and is exactly what I needed.

            Very Good E. H. D. for Mac!

            Comments about Seagate 1TB USB 3.0 Backup Plus Portable Hard Drive for Mac:

            Very compact and sturdy, and small at the same time. Worked perfectly out of the box for my movies, photos and music. I did everything manually so I cannot say anything about how it works with Time Machine.

                      Have several of these on multiple computers - simplest plug & play ever.

                      B&H were great - got the product out immediately and at a better price then I found anywhere else including the big box stores

                            When I bought this external hard drive, I saw it was listed in the title that it was for a MAC. But in it's description it was for all PC's. I couldn't figure out why I couldn't see the hard drive when I plugged it in, until I realized you had to download a file to allow the drive to be seen on a PC, or Windows type computer....Once that was done, the drive worked without any issues. If I had to order another one, I would buy the one that is made for Windows computers. It would just be easier....

                                  I use this Seagate hard drive with Time Machine to back up my MacBook Pro. When I got it I was amazed at how easy it was - just plug it in and fire up Time Machine. No extra software to install, no configuration. I also use it to store extra copies of my photos and videos.

                                  A plus - it matches my Mac. Stylish as well as functional!

                                    Comments about Seagate 1TB USB 3.0 Backup Plus Portable Hard Drive for Mac:

                                    The drive does exactly what it's supposed to do, and it's a lovely, cute little thing.

                                    Following this purchase, I also ordered the WD 2TB My Passport USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive. I use both for storage of videos, photos, etc. and for backup of my two Macs using Time Machine. I cannot take advantage of USB 3.0 speed because I have only USB 2.0 ports, but if and when I upgrade computers I'm sure it will be welcome. While the 2TB drive is a little better deal in terms of GB per dollar, I think it's a matter of personal preference whether one wants the larger capacity (perhaps with more partitioning) or separate drives of a mere 1TB. Also, my MacBook pro has a 750 GB drive, which means I can backup using Time Machine with space to spare; I suppose a 2TB drive would be more practical for backing up a larger internal drive.

                                    I've read some reviews that make a point of whether a drive comes pre-formatted for a Mac, but to me that seems like a non-issue since it takes about a minute to format it and partition it as desired (using Disk Utility).

                                    I go back and forth between two homes with my MacBook Pro as my main computer, making small, portable external drives etremely helpful. These compact little drives are a Godsend.

                                    The Case Logic CAPHDC1B is a perfect fit in length and width but a little thicker than necessary unless you've got extra connectors or adaptors to stick in.

                                    I have an additional word of praise for B&H. Of several vendors I use for online purchases, B&H is the only one providing a tracking number for USPS shipments. Since I live on Guam, which is within the U.S. postal system but without home delivery, it is extremely helpful to be able to track the shipment and know when it has reached my post office. USPS will even email me letting me know when it left Brooklyn, when it arrived in Honolulu, and so forth—how cool! I might also add that shipping prices used to seem a little high but now seem more reasonable. Thank you B&H.

                                          I use it solely as a portable drive for use with my Retina MBP. Usb 3.0 is super fast for transfers. It's tiny which is great for convenience. High Recommendations.
