    It's great for space. Portable and slim. A bit noisy but not too bad

    Product was pretty 'weak" for my channel master dvr. Not compatible, sound registration kept skipping randomly. Also a 'hard' disconnection made it ynusable. Quite fragile, would not buy it again.

    Ok this is the re-review of this Seagate back up plus. As you can recall from my first review of this item, I took the original back and instead of refunding my currency I opted to just grab another one which worked when I got it home. The first one just made noises when I plugged it up to my laptop and wouldn't autorun. It is very small able to be ported around with no problem. I didn't give this 5 stars because I can't dump to it wirelessly, which in this day and age is what its all about, but I guess they have other models that you can connect to a Wi-Fi network and dump and retrieve wirelessly. I will try one of those next.

    I've had drives like this before. Needed a bigger one for backups before is upgrade. Read reviews and recommendations for my then current operating system level. Bought this one. Plugged it in and no luck getting it to show up on my desktop. Odd buzzing noise, light was on. But it would not show up. Read mice type - it was for higher op system. Took it to work and told my IT guy I'd have to return it. He said he could format it to work for any mac, but tried it on higher systems on PCs and Macs we have, and it simply was not working at all, not showing up on any computer so he couldn't format it at all. He said it should not be buzzing like that. Returned for refund.
