    6TB Backup Plus USB 3.0 External Hard Drive with USB Hub is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems to be a Good Drive I've been using it a few weeks now, mainly to back up photo files, which are pretty big. I'm using this drive to back up another Seagate hard drive, which I've been using for two years or so without any problems, which is why I decided to buy another Seagate drive. Another popular brand of hard drive that I used to employ for back ups failed after a year or two of use, so I switched to Seagate. It seems that all hard drives fail sooner or later; it's just that Seagate seems to last longer. I've not had one crash yet. Nevertheless, I always feel� more secure if I have two backups of my photos and other data. Thus, I don't hesitate to recommend Seagate drives.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good investment for backing up. This HD gives me a place for the second backup of my initial backup, using Time Machine. It required re-formatting for Mac, using software available from seagate/paragon. I was a bit confused about whether it required a firmware update, and sent an email message to Seagate, which was answered promptly. (Since the HD is powered by the computer, it doesn't require an update.) Seagate's customer service has always been excellent. I'm about 2.5 feet away from the drive and there's very little sound when it's backing up. I haven't used the two USB ports on the front, but they are a worthwhile convenience, since I've filled up all my slots on the 7 slotUSB hub. And I checked the sectors of the drive before backing up and everything was fine. As always, B&H is very reliable.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Some annoying things . . . This drive seems to be fast and works as a drive should.  Two things bother me about this drive:  I own 2 other Seagate 4-TB drives, and they get done copying my files and stop making sounds.  This 6TB drive keeps on clicking for many minutes after it shows 100% copy of files or folders.  Does this mean that it is not really done copying?  And, second, I am still running Win 7 Pro, and every once in a while the shortcut icon to this drive shows up with a question mark over it on booting up which stays there until the next boot, although it seems to work OK as a drive even with the question mark.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleep well at night Don't worry about your data, It will be backed up just fine with this. I also love the extra two usb ports that come on the front to jumper other devices off of this. You won't be disappointed.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not 5 Star For Mac And the only reason is, that the hd does NOT come partitioned with enough room to install on a Mac OS. You also cannot repartition through the disk utility. You must MANUALLY repartition the drive using the Terminal app and enter code. You can find the code online, but it does take some searching for. If you feel confident that you can do this, the product is great. If you need a plug & play...I'd probably stay away.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hard drive, as usual I bought two of these external hard drives to store my pictures on to replace two 5 TB Seagate drives.� I have never had a Seagate hard drive fail and these seem like they will be more of the same.� The USB 3.0 hubs are also an advantage.� The new Seagate Toolkit is much better than the Seagate Dashboard that came with my older drives and it also works on my 5 TB drives.� Seagate is an excellent option for storage.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from works on both mac and pc, great! my primary laptop is a mac, but i use pc's to work on media... so this was a perfect solution. if you want to use time machine, you must format it for a mac using disk utility. if you want to use it with time machine and still use it on a pc, there is a paragon driver available for windows that allows you to access the drive once its been formatted for macs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet and works well with Windows 10 Bought as I have had so many issues with Windows 10 and external hard drives. This drive has worked great plus it is quiet. Very happy with it
