    "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...I used it to upgrade my PS4 hard drive(500g) and got it for a great price.The ordering process was smooth and uneventful.The drive itself was exactly what I was looking for and to swap out the drives was very easy.I'm a happy camper"

    "After deciding to go with the retina display, I wasn't happy to have to buy a CD/DVD drive (I have to burn CD's and DVD's for work on occasion, and I like watching DVD's on my computer), but this one was ready and available for a decent price for people like me...I bought a new iMac ,when I hooked it up I found no drive ,so I looked them up on bestbuy.com ,and liked this one the best,when I went to the store to pick it up the sales person told me just plug it in and follow directions ,it was that simple,it took 2 mins to hook up and use.works great no issues yet"

    "My only two complaints for this is that the enclosure gets rather hot after extended usage or when transferring large batches of files at a time and that the enclosure itself is rather large compared to others, however, this drive still serves as my daily driver and does such a great job that I recommended it to my friend who has a Macbook Pro and they love it as well...I recommend this drive if you've got a Macbook or a Windows computer and are looking for an external drive that's easy to take along with you, although it's just as good if sitting on a desk"
