    Does not work on USB 2.0 ports. Exchanged twice then got a refund. Replaced with another brand; connected without issue.

    I like the speed the price and size of this external drive. The only thing that bothered me is the bezels around the connection scratch easily. Otherwise it's a Workhorse of a drive and I would recommend this to anybody.

    This device claimed it was mac compatible but it simply would not connect to my mac. It refused to allow files to be transferred onto it. Just another Best Buy flop.

    Good Backup device for Mac

    The Seagate Backup Plus for Mac is a good choice for backing up your data from Macs. It has a pretty simple interface to use, and it backs up automatically when plugged in via USB cable. 2 things that would improve it are being able to schedule the backups to occur at a specific date/time at regular intervals, and a better cable to plug into your Mac. I think the supplied cable is a little flimsy, and does not alway connect right away. And it just backs your stuff up on its own, no way to set any type of schedule. But it does back up everything, and it is nice and ordered to be able to find anything on the backups, which is the main purpose. Small improvements would make it a 5.

    I bought this drive and only three days after using it, it broke, by no fault of my own. It just would not connect to any computer, therefore I lost the files that I had put on it. I notified the company and they said I would have to send it in, and get a new one. I had to pay to ship it and to get special packaging for a BROKEN hard drive, when it wasn't my fault the drive broke! It was just ridiculous. It has been over a month and I still don't have the new drive. I did not pay $60 to get a drive that would mess up on me, then pay to ship it out so that I would have to wait forever to even get it back. There is no way to contact them about it except through email, an they take forever to answer! I'm infuriated. I need this hard drive for class, and I keep getting yelled at because I don't have it. And there is no way I'm buying a new one.
