Summary: I owned this device for well over a year before I could use it due to compatibility issues. I had purchased several cables trying to get this to connect to my Mac for sometime and even invested in the alternate docking bay which was supposed to make it compatible with other versions of the OS. Nope. Wouldn't connect. Nothing but problems. Later when I hooked it up to a new machine … nothing. The thing was a ghost from jump and I never realized it.
Seagate Backup Plus 3TB Thunderbolt Desktop External Hard Drive for Mac
4 April 2014
Summary: The shipment arrived a few days before the set arrival date. It was well packaged and protected. The HHD drive is smaller than I originally thought but works as advertised. I was immediately recognized on the desktop, is quiet and a versatile product.
Summary: This is a review of the "Seagate Backup Plus 3TB Thunderbolt Desktop External Hard Drive for Mac..." connected to a mid-2011, 27 inch iMac 3.4 GHz Quad Core i7, model 12,2 with 32GB RAM running OS 10.9.2. I bought it hoping that it would a fast way to back up my Promise Pegasus Thunderbolt R4 (4 TB - Thunderbolt 1 - RAID 5 Configured). There were no problems initially but the Seagate was very, very slow. Copying 1.6TB from the Promise RAID took almost 24 hours!
