    I work on two desktops, an iMac and a PC, and I need to have my files available and backed up for both. I can and do use Dropbox, but I also want a physical, portable drive. I chose the Seagate Backup Plus Slim 1tb External USB 3.0/2.0 Portable Hard Drive because it is compatible with both systems, with no reformatting required. It has performed as advertised and as I had hoped. It was easy to set up, moves seamlessly between my two computers, and has fast transfer times.

    Yes, this back up drive by Seagate is simple, user friendly, and surprisingly rugged to boot. Plus in, install the software and be amazed by the simplistic, easy to navigate interface. Gives you plenty of options that match up with your level of expertise (or lack thereof, in my case) and you're off and running. I even dropped it from about three (3) feet off the ground (knocked it off the desk) and it held up with no issues. Highly recommend.

    I bought a new computer, so I thought I would need a new external hard drive. I did research reviews on both Best Buy and Amazon. After reading all the reviews, I decided this was the drive for me. Plenty of storage and was easy to operate. I didn't notice until I got home that it came with additional one drive storage for two years, free. . When I got it home, it was a breeze to set up and you can either set it up to back up continuously , or use the snapshot feature, to do a fast one time back up

    Solid, Quick USB 3 External Backup Drive

    The drive is simple to set up and use, transfers data quickly (53mb/s), and is an excellent solution to my monthly data backup needs, providing portable, removable media. I don't use Seagate's backup software, so I formatted the drive before use, using Windows 10's formatting tool. Worked fine.

    This is the third portable hard drive I've purchased and it's by far the best one I've had in terms of ease of use, copy speed and small size. It's so easy to hook up to a to a computer terminal, data files are copied over in seconds, its small size makes it so easy to take with you or store in a safe place.

    This hard drive is exactly what I needed. It's portable, with a lot of memory. Great for storing tons of photos in one place. It's extremely easy to set up and use. I like the trial of Adobe Lightroom too!

    I had bought this after comparing it to the Western Digital external HD of the same size. The price was better, and the connection speed was faster. The initial set up of the software was a piece of cake, then it came to the first backup. It at and froze at 3% for well over an hour and made no further progress. I was patient and let it continue, and after a few hours the backup was finally complete. After this, the backups have been extremely easy. Don't be disheartened if it seems to freeze on you at first, since it will work. Just hoped the process would have been faster to begin with, and show more accurately what the progress actually was.

    For relatively cheap, the Seagate Backup Plus Slim 1 TB External Hard Drive STDR1000100 is a solid and easy to use back up device. I love it! I use it regularly to back up my iPhone 7 plus 257 GB and my 500 GB HP computer. It's quick, seamless and works on USB 3.0! I highly recommend this device.

    Purchased this so that I could backup my desktop PC at home. The backup program that comes with the drive is easy to use and very convenient. Easy to install and no problems after a month of use. I've owned other Seagate external drives and are quite reliable, even after several years of use.

    This works great as a backup external drive. I was really surprised at how small and compact it was! It is really easy to carry to and from work. It was easy to encrypt and set up, and it came with 2 years of free 200GB cloud storage which was a nice bonus!

    Minimal installation required, which is always awesome. It's basically ready to use, which is also a definite plus. The price wasn't bad for 1TB either. I'm using mine to hold Windows 10 updates primarily (my computer memory alone is too small for them), and surprisingly, I can still use the computer even without it connected. It's also really lightweight and portable, which really just makes it even better.

    The best hard drive in terms of ease of use and simple set up with a great price and simple reliability. The unit helps keep my PC runing smooth by adding space for saves that can easily be transferred for use on another PC.

    Easy setups, portable and compatible with 2.0 or 3.0. You can even connect with an extension cable, since there's no power cable, to hide the backup drive in case your system is lost or stolen. Works well with syncing and has auto settings to get the most from the drive.

    This back up drive was simple to set up and load. It works with a PC or Mac without difficulty. The fact that it is small and compact is both good since it is easy to store and not so good since it will be easy to lose. I was able to organize all my documents, folders and music which easily fit on this drive with plenty of room to spare.

    Easy to set up. Just go ahead and install the software, plug in the drive, tell it to back up and you're ready to go. It won't set you back that much money either it has a very reasonable price tag for the size and what it does.
