    5TB Backup Plus Portable Hard Drive (Black) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 90.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love love love my Seagate I am so over cloud backup. When Comcast gives you 2MB upload speed that makes uploading 1T a week long project you know paying for cloud storage is fools game. Within house backup it is mearly minutes till whole portfolios are copied. When it comes to managing time to use technology to limit time use instead of gobbling it up makes Seagate’s 5T Portable Hard Drive a winner, hands down. I used Maxtor before Seagate took over and this little box held all my archives of 30 years of photos digitized press clippings, website backups and books. I’ll be buying several to divide up my work and back up the backups. Easy to store and move.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I've purchased several portable hard drives over the years and this one it the best. � for the operating system I have (windows 10) I didn't have to download any software to use it.� (in the past other products I've purchased I did and even when you remove the HD properly it's still looking for it - because of the software) I just drag and drop the items I wanted to add and it worked beautifully.� really large files and photos copied over rather quickly. � 5TB was a lot - and I had a lot of room left over; but when you're scanning in old photos at large sizes and you take raw and jpeg photos it's nice to have that extra space.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great drive. Not-so-great cable. Over the years I have bought 4 of these (so far) in 4 different colors. I like these drives a lot. I move them around all the time in book bags and brief cases, and they keep working fine. The only thing that doesn't last is the cable that comes with them. Those seem to only be able to handle about a year of wear & tear, so save yourself the trouble and get a heavier-duty cable BEFORE you start experiencing unexpected un-mounting. And the HCY-PVB Portable Hard Drive Case is a great accessory for these drives too. I didn't bother getting a case until recently, and while my drives have survived a lot of abuse, I expect the case will only increase their lifespans.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Working good, but a bit slower than my other portables I bought this to store my personal image files. I like to load my files to a drive or 2 while traveling, and also to be able to work on stuff while I travel. I really like that that it's small and 5TB. It is, however, a bit slow when compared to my other portable drives that I use for weddings and events. Not a deal breaker for personal stuff, but it is noticeable and sometimes a little frustrating. It also doesn't seem to be as robust a construction as some of my other drives. Time will tell how it performs, but it's working fine now. I'd consider getting another.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Backup Solution I purchased this drive as a replacement for one that I was using for my Windows file history that was running out of space. I moved my file history from the old drive to this new one and while it took some time to move all of the files I was able to get my Windows 10 machine to connect to the file history on the new drive as if I had been using it for the past couple of years. After creating an image on the new drive I am back in business again. I really like the fact that the drive obtains its power to run via the USB connection.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not Quite fully READY for MAC Purchased a 5TB to consolidate three smaller external HDs into one; purchased this version based upon This drive can be easily connected to both Windows and Mac based computers ... I ended up having to use a pre-loaded software to fully erase the 5TB then use Apple's Disk Utility to convert to a fully useable HD for my Mac. 7 minutes of unexpected frustration interpreting the pre-loaded instructions -- but the HD now seems solid and I anticipate a few years of satisfactory use based upon prior Seagate HDs I have had. Recommended with this small caveat that it's not just a simple plug and use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works For Me I needed an external drive to back up my digitized VHS videos (120 hours). �This does the trick. �It works with both Windows 10 and Mac OS without reformatting when you use the Paragon driver that comes with the drive or that you can download from Seagate's support website for free. �Using Blackmagic Disk Speed Test I get about 135 - 140 Mb/s transfer rate on my new iMac 27. �Good enough for my use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So fast. and yes, it works with Macs I've bought 2 of these 5TB drives now, they are the best hard drive deal on the planet right now. Fast 135MB/sec speeds and tons of storage. The housing is a bit thicker (taller) than other portable drives out there, so may not fit in a very slim case. It comes NTFS formatted, which won't be writeable on a Mac out of the box. All you have to do is open the program Disk Utility, selected the drive, and Erase it, choosing Mac OS X Extended (journaled) as the new file system format. Now you have a Mac hard drive. Or choose ExFAT if you need it to work on both Windows and Mac.
