    Seagate Backup Plus reviews

    2TB Backup Plus Slim USB 3.0 External Hard Drive for Mac is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Useful, compact and simple I bought this external storage device for my daughter, who needed to back-up materials and info for her student teaching program, from her Macbook. This unit is small, but seems well made, and offers plenty of storage capacity. She says that the instructions are brief, and that the set-up and operation were simple and straightforward; a couple of cable connections and button presses, and she was up and running. It is pre-formatted for Macs, but can also be used with Windows machines, so it can be used with our desktop computer. She is happy with it, so I'm pleased also. Hopefully, it will be reliable as well. Will advise if there are any issues with it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! The silver Seagate 2TB is my third Seagate external drive. I purchased two others, exactly the same, a red and a blue, for just Photo Backups. The silver is used for my System Backup. Smooth, fast and easy. I like the fact that they did come in colors so I can distinguish them easily. The are lightweight and portable. I travel a bit ... two always travel with me. I have owned the red one for a while now. No issues whatsoever. I highly recommend these external drives.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Back-up Drive This unit is very user friendly. i attached it to my iMac and followed a few prompts to complete the installation process. I am using it to back up my entire iMac system in addition to hundreds of jpeg and video files. The unit is unbelievably small and lightweight, hard to believe it has 2TB storage capabilities.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is great, and so is B&H! I use this Seagate 2 TB Backup Plus for Mac as my primary local backup disk. It is plug and play, working smoothly from the instant I plugged it in. It's fast, quiet, and even looks good. I have already gotten one for my wife for use to backup files at her work.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Messed up my Mac I tried using the Seagate after reformatting to use on p c also, wouldn’t work now my Mac is completely messed up showing many many many tiles on the screen I can’t get rid of. Seagate was the biggest mistake I have ever made on computers

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality & Consistancy I use the Plus Slim as my main location for my photos. It provides me with enough space house my photos and room to add more. Easy to set up and the drag and drop provides an easy way to move my files. USB 3 makes it all move quickly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great drive I've had several Backup Plus Slim for Mac drives for almost a couple years now and they're all -- so far -- very solid and reliable. Relatively fast, especially for a 5200 RPM drive. Super compact and nicely constructed.
