It does what I need.
3 July 2014
Excerpt: I have used this external hard drive to store multiple video recordings that I use to edit and create final production video. It has worked well for this purpose. The time for transfer of data from my computer to the external hard drive has been adequate for my needs. I would recommend this external hard drive for those who need a quality device for mid-level work.
Excerpt: This seagate 3 geg. External Hard Drive is a great backup at a GREAT price. It has software the automatically keeps your system backed up and it is easily customized for your own personal needs. I had a 1 get. and I expanded to a 3 Geg, for increased backup space. It has a very good record for longevity. Get it soon because they are going fast.
Summary: Set up was quick and easy; although initial data transfer to the drive appeared slow, even with a USB 3.0 connection. However, drive is working great and it's very quiet. Works as advertised and for the price, I can't complain.
Summary: The Dashboard control panel is very easy to use and allows either continuous or periodic back up. Just started using and looks really nice. If performance crashes I'll give a follow up review. The Dashboard control panel allows automatic back ups of social media but this feature can be disabled if not desired.
