    It didn't work as expected.

    I expected the drive to behave like a back-up slim does on a PC. However, we were installing it and got to a backup option, invoked it, and it did a backup, but that is all it will do. Then we tried to register it, but couldn't complete the process due a bug of some sort. I would not recommend it if you want more flexibility.

    I watched a YouTube video for this product before I bought it. I don't know much about computers but was able to backup my hard drive easily. It look a long time to backup during the set up because I wasn't using time machine on my Mac. After that each backup was quick. I'm so pleased with this product.

    needed to back up my MacBook computer. The genius bar staff at the Apple store suggested this Seagate unit. It was very easy to set up, turns on and off with my laptop use. I like the small sleek design. I have not used it yet to transfer my documents to a new computer, will have to update this review when I do.

    purchased this portable hard drive for my daughters Mac Pro, it is time machine capable which is fantastic. Her mac Pro crashed during the school year and thanks to the Geek Squad they got her up and running again but her data was lost. They suggested this portable hard drive as a security measure just in case anything happens again

    This drive has a lot of storage space for backing up my laptop. I haven't had any problems using it, it connects very quickly and expect it will last many years. I have found that WD drives have always been very reliable and I've never had any problems with any of their drives which I have bought in the past.

    I bought this external hard drive to use with my 2014 Macbook Air. All you have to do is plug it in to your USB port and Seagate does the rest! Backups are quick and saved to a folder with the date and time. It is extremely portable and lightweight. Great product to keep important photos and documents safe!

    It's small, compact, and light so you can transport it. The set up online was a little confusing, but once it was installed I was able to drop decades worth of scanned photos I was worried about. The cloud is too confusing so this is perfect. I would highly recommend to this to anyone looking for an external hard drive!

    I love it so far. So much I purchased two! The sales guy was very quick in following what I was describing what I was exactly looking for and quickly showed me the Segate. The questions I didn't think of or forgot to ask he told me that information as I was looking at it!!! Bravo Best Buy! Awesome employees as well as products!

    I'm guessing this is true of all of these backup hard drives, but you had to download this and fill out that and give your email address (which I hate doing), etc., etc., etc. It took a good 45 minutes to get set up. I'm not saying it's a reason to avoid it ... just be aware that it isn't plug and play.

    Good for offloading files, but be careful

    Backup drive seems to create separate backups by date, instead of just backing up new files each backup. This gives you multiple backups to sort thru, which may or may not have all of your files in them?? Its a little confusing, so I will have to explore it a little longer. The backups work fine, as scheduled.

    I decided to try this brand for my Mac after buying a WD My Passport for my PC. It has proven to be a good decision as this was very easy to use to backup my school issued computer. Just plug it in and turn on Time Machine and you should be good to go. I would definitely recommend this to a Mac user.

    slim, fast, easy to open, somewhat affordable, the only thing i'm concerned with this drive is that i had to format it for it to work on imac's time machine. its easy for a tech like me but, for someone who is computer illiterate and doesn't know what they're doing they would have returned to the store

    I purchased this to use for my aerial video company and for self imaging my MacBook Pro. Since using it, I have had no issues with the HDD not working. It copies fast, and reads data quickly. I really like the fact they give you 200 gigs of cloud storage on top of it. This is a great back up disk drive if need be.

    Got this to back up my iMac. No problems to set up and use. It's really small and takes up no space at all. Got it on sale as per a recommendation by one of the Best Buy clerks. He was very helpful to the point of of having me wait until the next day to buy this specific model when the truck dropped off a new delivery.

    With other manufacturers I can count on disk failure, they just don't last and trying to use the manufacturers warranty a nightmare. I've relied on these Seagate USB powered disks for years now. Only one failure so far on a disk that was many years old and long beyond its warranty. I swear by Seagate.

    Read reviews and was looking for something to back up computer no longer connected to network backup. Came formatted to the Mac so didn't have to mess with it. Just connected set up the time machine. Quite small, yet seems sturdy enough. Have not tried the backup software that came pre-installed, maybe later.

    My iMac hard drive crashed and I had to recover what I could from my old PC. This Seagate drive was a needed purchase and I couldn't be happier with it. It backs up your PC's contents hourly and erases the oldest back-ups once it is full (1TB). A must for every PC owner and it also comes in a Microsoft version.

    The very first time I used the product I had an issue with it. I had to run a test on their website and it said that it was malfunctioning to just send it back. It's to much of a hassle to send it back and I'm scare to back up anything on that product anyways. I wish I could just get my money back.

    Purchased this drive to use as a Time Machine back up drive for parents iMac. Plugged it in, instantly recognized and off it went. No hassles. For a spinning drive it's VERY QUIET, so much so hat you have to pick it up and you can ever so slightly feel it vibrate. Would recommend and will buy again.
