    Would not recommend – expensive and bad quality Posted by: Samantha from: on I’ve had this Seagate Plus portable hard drive for Mac for about a year and have thus far had no problems. However, be wary once problems do arise. I first took the drive back to Best Buy to get it diagnosed, however apparently every computer in the Geek Squad department was being used to transfer data. So, the attendant offered to ship the drive to HQ to be assessed for *get ready* $200 processing fee. I wasn’t even sure if the drive was the problem at this point. After trying the drive on various other Macs, with a number of other cables, I determined it was the drive that had the issue. After contacting Seagate, I was told that I could return my drive to HQ only to hear that Seagate “may replace your product with a product that was previously used, repaired, and tested to meet Seagate specifications.” I’m sorry if I don’t want a pre-used drive that was previously returned because of problems. My brand new drive was supposed to “meet Seagate specifications” and it broke within a year.. Additionally, in order to recover my files, Seagate was going to charge a $50 processing fee *not too bad*. AND a $550 recovery fee. *jaw drop*. The problem was a faulty hard drive, and I don’t recommend the product because of the terrible warranty (giving you a pre-used drive) and the insane cost to retrieve files when it wasn’t even my fault that the drive broke. Thoroughly annoyed and will no longer buy from this brand.

    I’d give zero stars if I could Posted by: brittany from: on this drive was a backup drive to another backup drive that was malfunctioning. I bought this because it had such a great rating and the customer service is reviewed as top notch. I haven’t even owned this drive for 3 months. All of a sudden while opening a file off of the drive, it freezes, freezes my computer and fries itself. It will no longer work. But I can cough up $500 and get the files recovered. Let me assure you that this drive hasn’t been ejected improperly, dropped or mistreated in any way. I was informed upon calling customer service that next time I can pay $30 for insurance for up to a year so if this happens it will cover data recovery. Here is an idea, how about make a better quality product and make it so this is not necessary. Since that wasn’t offered at the front, I don’t see why it should be necessary to pay $500 to get it recovered. But what the heck, it’s just money, right?

    Unable to download to it. Posted by: Colecreek from: on I find the instructions very poor for a non tech person. Read, went up online at Seagate, and have not been able to BACKUP computer AND download to Seagate. Very, Very USER UNFRIENDLY.

    Easy, quick back up for entire computer! Posted by: Heather8228 from: Reseda, CA on This is an easy way to back up your entire MAC and quickly. It just backs up your time machine so everything is there! The only complaint is that it doesn’t seem to allow you to select WHAT to back up. I bought it to just back up my photos, but it automatically backs up the entire computer through time machine, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. It’s also slightly difficult to find what you’re looking for on the hard drive after the back up. But if you just put what you’re looking for in the search box you can usually find it.

    Great External Hard Drive Posted by: MacComputerUser from: Elmhurst, IL on I bought this to use as a backup at the office. It’s a great item due to its compact and lightweight size. It’s easy to transport for those reasons as well. So if you’re looking for an external hard drive that’s easy to use, lightweight, and compact consider this one!

    Doesn’t work, DONT BUY Posted by: MONA from: on The product didn’t even work, and now I am out of $65 and a hard drive. This is a waste of time and money and the warranty doesn’t even work.

    Good Posted by: impeller from: Portland OR on I got it to my mother. We found that the backup coming with Seagate software was not useful. Maybe just we did not how to use it. We decided to use mac’s Time Machine only for backup.

    Product failed within 3 months Posted by: Hopsy from: on Much finger pointing saying it was the computer and not the drive. Spent hours on the phone with both Seagate and Apple and even brought the device to an Apple Store and device did not work on any other computer so Seagate is replacing the drive after close to 5 hours of troubleshooting. Hoping the new (unfortunately refurbished unit) will work satisfactorily.
