Works great

  • Summary: Not much documentation, but you don't really need much--at least on a Mac. What little they do supply comes in 24 languages. Yay. Strangely, the supplied utilility doesn't detect the device if you plug it into a Wi-fi router like AirPort Extreme, even though you can get the desktop icon and Time Machine sees it fine. Once you have it working, there is video documentation on the device itself.

  • Summary: So what do you expect from Seagate. This is a huge, 2 TB drive in a package like a book--make that two books wide. It is my safety backup.

Never thought it would be faster then my LaCie FW 800 drive!

Scott S., Amazon

  • Summary: I can't comment on the reliability of this drive, and I know Segate's don't last as long as other brands but for the price I couldn't beat taking the plunge on upgrading my backup drive. I originally was looking for a Thunderbolt drive, but those cost 2x - 3x as much as this drive. I also thought about looking for a FireWire 800 drive as that is what I used with my last Mac because it was so much faster then USB, but times have changed.

  • Summary: As many have I must have purchased thirty external hard drives over the years. This is the best. Quite, provided with simple backup software considered a safety valve friend. Would recommend highly from among the many.

  • Summary: The seagate plus is a good back up storage device. With the included software it's great! It doesn't get hot like many others and runs silent. I recommend this device.
