    Good hard disk

    I love the hard disk. However, the drawback is the hard disk needs a software to be downloaded to get it to working. Moreover, it doesn't work with win10 because the software for windows 10 has not been introduced yet. Otherwise the hard disk works absolutely fine.

    Minor software glitch with the Time Machine schedule but after assistance,the backup hard drive works as published. Simple and small to eliminate desk/table clutter.

    Used only for time machine back-up on my Mac which was performed simply ad easily right out of the box. Did not use any included or downloadable software so am not able to review that.

    Not for Mac Users

    When we plugged this hard drive into our new iMac, nothing happened. After several attempts to install special software to let the iMac see this Seagate drive we still had no luck. There are lots of reviews out there that other users were having the same trouble. Rather than fight the drive for any more hours we just returned it to the store.

    I have been using this drive with my Mac Book Pro. The data copy is fairly fast due to USB 3.0. The drive is not bulky and can be easily carried around. I did not care too much about the software segate included with the drive.

    I got it to my mother. We found that the backup coming with Seagate software was not useful. Maybe just we did not how to use it. We decided to use mac's Time Machine only for backup.

    Does just what it says it does. 1To, just the amount needed for way much more than I actually do. And I save a lot. Keeps a lot of free space for a full saving of all my files just in case. As usual, I don't use the free software included, way too complicated to use. Very fair price (got $20 discount)

    nice HD

    Bought this to use on my macbook pro 15" retina and my surface pro 3, one as timemachin and one as regular hd. You have to do a quick split first so that one half is mac compatible and the other is PC, and after that, my HD's been working like a champ. Only complain is, the software that Seagate installs froze my computer, so don't install it, you don't need it. The HD is pretty light, very slim, and pretty fast. I am able to transfer GB of data from computer to computer with ease, and the 1TB I got is very good for my usage as well. BTW I got my wife the mac version, hers needed no partition obviously and has been working nicely since day 1.

    Simple, slim and quiet storage

    Great simple USB 3 speed for Mac storage, works well. First unit I bought would randomly drop off and disconnect for no reason. Even software that came with it would fail it's own test. Returned after couple of days, no hassle. Got exact replacement and worked fine. No problems. Using for over a month now and good value overall with a very slim profile that fits the Mac aesthetic well.
