Summary: Works without needing the included mac drivers for Seagate 3TB drives under OSX 10.9, but you have to load the supplied MAC driver for 4TB drives. Performance with the 4TB Seagate drive as a time capsule backup is still slow, no improvement from the USB3 connection.

Summary: Note: Dec 2013 Update follows the initial review =============================================================== I bought the 3 TB drive to back up my Dell XPS 15 750MB hard drive as well as to store my ever increasing inventory of video files.

Summary: I was wondering if anyone can help me and advise if this drive have an option to acces the files form internet, not only form my home network? I have it connected to NETGEAR additional router with USB 3.0. Thanks
