    This being the second 1TB Seagate drive I picked up (first did not work right out of the box), I thought I was in good shape to store all of the data I just recovered from a corrupted external drive. To my dismay, I had no sooner transferred all of my critical data to it when it accidentally fell (no more than 2 feet) and now I cannot access my data at all. Tried Seagate tech support - they offered a solution which of course would delete all of my data in the process. Warranty on a device I've owned less than a month does not include data recovery. That will be $600 IF they can get the data back off. At least the Passport that I had was sturdy enough to handle every day use for several years before it eventually went south. Can't recommend the Seagate unless you're keeping packed in bubble wrap 24/7 and will never ever need back any of the data you put on it.

    A sleek, light external hard drive.

    A very nice, slim hard drive unit with great capacity for the price. I had some issues formatting this unit for my Mac, but I hadn't yet updated my operating system, so that's where I would put the issue. This is a very fast hard drive unit, too, and due to small size easy to stash away and protect. (I paired it with an Insignia-brand hard shell case--this is DEFINITELY A RECOMMENDATION--if you're going to use an external hard drive with moving internal parts, be sure to keep it protected in a case. Very difficult to get files back if drive fails.) A very nice unit for compact storage that can also be taken on the go.

    I have many external drives that I store photos, videos, music etc. Recently I had a PC quit working before I could move all of my files on to another external hard drive. In a panic I went to Best Buy. The geek squad member had me bring the tower in and he was able to transfer my files to a seagate hard drive. I explained most of my other hard drives were WD. He explained how he liked this better because it is dual compatible between windows and apple. It is lightning fast and super sleek. I love it. Now to transfer all of my other hard drives to seagate models.

    I have tons of photos and files that I want to keep safe and backed-up so that I will have them for my children and grandchildren and who knows great-grandchildren someday. I value family and friends and take tons of pictures when I am with family and friends and when I go on trips so that my family and friends can see all the photos I have every taken and know where and what and when I had been some where. All about genealogy.

    I decided to buy the Ultra Slim external hard disk to be in the same line with my slim laptop, but probably I chose the worst one in the market. Just after three months the disk started making some noise and then was getting very difficult to be recognized by the laptop until the day that wasn't possible anymore and the disk is not working et all. To recovery the data I probably need to pay a very expensive service with the hope to recover my important data.

    Ok so I know that this is going to sound totally girly but this is the prettiest portable hard drive I have ever owned and it blends in perfectly with the decor in my living room which is nice because I got it so that I could add removable storage to our dvr when it ended up going on the fritz and they were going to send us a new one. Totally a step up from my last one that was ginormous and needed its own power supply which was basically bigger that this entire thing!!

    The hard drive was easy to synchronize right out of the box with my computer. It's light, fast and portable. I would absolutely recommend this item to anyone needing to carry a large amount of space on the go. Fit's into a small pocket inside my laptop bag. The reason why I purchased the extra hard drive is because cloud storage doesn't always work when you need it. Sometimes the building you are making a sales call in doesn't have a strong cell signal.

    I was researching for a storage device for over 5 days. Best Buy offered the best price for the Ultra Slim 1 TB USB 3.0/2.0 portable Hard Drive. We wanted to store large files which can handle high speed storage and retrieval. This product was slim and offered all features as well. The item stocked out from the shelf when we visited Best Buy, however, the associate helped in locating one piece for us. Thank you for the wonderful customer service.
