    "good !...I like....I was in need of a backup support, because my pic crash and I lost information, so I research and seen this sea gate backup plus had a high ratings and I also compare others and this one was a good selection, it is portable compact convent for traveling, just missing a good case to protect it other than that it works so far....Basically, he removed the annoying software Seagate had on the hard drive so it became simply a drag and drop external hard drive (much like a flash drive) which is exactly what I wanted for my purposes."
