Summary: I've been using this Seagate backup drive for a couple of months and so far it has been working flawlessly. It's ready to use with a Mac right out of the box, but I reformatted mine because I wanted to divide it into two partitions. Doing so was fast and easy with Mac OS X's Disk Utility app.
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...

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.
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.
