    I have had multiple Seagate drives over the years and have two of the 2tb version of this drive. 4tb is only slightly larger than the 2tb slim drives, but speed and performance is far better than the slim. Overall a great purchase!

    At first I was going to use it for my Mac because is't literally plug and play. But then decided to use it for my playstation pro as external storage. Just reformatted it, easy process, and now works perfect for adding storage to my PS4.

    I purchased this size in order to consolidate all my other little external hard drive's I love it so much data in one place instead of umpteen other places. Ease-of-use for sure I would highly recommend this product to others!

    Needed a new external hard drive to use Time Capsule backup for my iMac. No nonsense plug in and go. Not difficult to setup or use. Gives me peace of mind for a "physical/mechanical" backup of the desktop computer as well as the cloud.

    Seamlessly works with Mac OS X & Time Machine for reliable backups. The drive is large enough to house additional documents and media. It comes with a FREE 200GB Microsoft OneDrive Account (Standard is 20GB. Combined are very valuable tools.

    I load lots of photos on my computer and the files are big. Without storage like this, I would have overload quickly. Lots of room on this external hard drive for a moderate price. A good value for the money and easy to use and install.

    The Seagate Backup Plus Hub is fast, has tons of storage and since it comes with two additional USB 3.0 ports it won't hog your desktop's expansion options. The drive has software that lets it work with Mac and Windows interchangeably.

    This is my second Seagate backup drive. First was for 1TB --- need the 4TB now. So easy to set up on the iMac. Very reliable when migrating info from one computer to another. Can't go wrong with this product.

    Seagate 4TB are well worth the buy and last, as they work seamlessly and the extended recovery drive programs offered by Seagate to great to have to ease the minds of people always worried about the what if the drive breaks down.

    NIce compact size with lots of storage space. I like the fact that it is powered through the USB cable. I use it with my MacBook and keep it in my computer bag so I can do a backup wherever I am and whenever I want. Easy to use.

    I was very happy with the suggestion of the Best Buy associate in helping me choose an appropriate back up storage unit for my Surface Pro3. This unit was simple to format for Windows 10; after a little research and trial and error.

    This is a small easy to use external hard drive. I would definitely buy it again. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I wish the cable it came with was a tighter fit. It's fallen out a few times which is a pain.

    bought this to back up my iMac with Time Capsule - working flawlessly. My motivation was because I started converting all my 8mm video tapes to files for my computer for storage and conversion to DVD, store in the cloud too

    I bought this to use with my Mac and time machine. So far it's working fine and it was a good price and it's a good name brand. I hope it continues to work great. I have had it for 2 months and it has been fine.

    I bought this on sale and it just works. I had been looking at it for a while. I have no problems with it. I don't have a lot of data on it so it seems pretty fast. I ended up buying the 2tb version for my wife as well.

    Backup Work Server

    Currently using this as a second backup for the server in a small office setting. I do have offsite backup, but I felt it was necessary to have a second backup just in case. It gets the job done. No complaints here.

    This remote hard drive is everything you would expect. It is fast and I am replacing another drive. Works well with the Mac and now I have a much larger storage for the photos and files going back a number of years

    I like the plug and play feature. We are using it as our Time Machine backup for our iMac and it is doing a terrific job. It's low profile and footprint make it perfect for an uncluttered office setting.

    I bought this as a gift. I have the older model and like it very much. My daughter was the receiver of this gift. She has downloaded all the photos from her phone to this flash drive. So simple and now backed up.
