    Performance is OK, only issue I have is that its a bit noisy when being access, should have gone with a SSD.

    Was looking into an external hard drive since my mac's hard drive was full of all the pictures I take, this hard drive is simple and easy to use!! It's just a bit thicker than my phone itself and it is very light weight, makes a VERY SMALL amount of noise which is not bothersome, but haven't had any issues since!!

    I would not get this hard drive. My pic didnot recognize it, and as soon as it was plugged in it made weird beeping sounds. We ended up returning it that night.

    I was very disappointed about this drive. At the beginning it was fast and had no issue, until one day I connected to my laptop and started making a sound, the hard drive had failed. After only 1 month.

    Love this television. It is so clear and feels like we have our own movie theater. Took away one star because the volume doesn't go as loud as I would have liked, however this will be fixed with our next purchase of a sound bar. I feel like a tv this size should have a bit more volume.

    I had initially bought a Toshiba 3 TB hard drive and after one day of use this started making a loud clicking sound. The sound would stop for a second when I moved The hard drive around then start again minutes later. I return to the store to switch out and came across this product decide to give Seagate a try. I like how it's much slimmer compact and feels of a higher-quality I have enjoyed using it and did not mind the price point. I would definitely recommend this to anybody looking for an external hard drive.

    I have a quite a few portable hard drives, and these are my current favorite: very thin, attractive, quiet, secure cable connection, fast USB 3 transfers. Couple of things: they do make occasional faint clicking noises, which apparently is normal (all 3 of my drives like this do so) Also, the Seagate software which I installed with this drive had some weird conflict with pre-existing Western Digital software from another drive, which made for all kinds of transfer errors and computer crashes. Made it seem like the drives were defective, but once all of each software was removed, the Seagate performs great. I only use drag and drop transfers. I am leery of backup software conflicts now. I do not know which brand was the culprit, if any.

    Not sure if it's reliable...

    I ordered this through bestbuy.com because it was on sale. The brand itself is pretty well known and reliable usually. However, I had issues with this item from day 1. It started making noises, which is a VERY bad sign for a hard drive, and it got hot. I couldn't even exchange it in the store because they didn't even carry that model. So I had to wait for a replacement in the mail. The replacement didn't work either. I ended up returning the item and buying something else.
