Excerpt: I purchased this external hard drive because I had read many positive reviews of it and the specifications sounded really impressive. I thought that if I purchased this external hard drive, I would be set for years to come as the incredible amount of space available on the hard …
A wonderful storage solver - if I didn't have it then I would buy it.

Summary: I chose this rating because the device works and it is easy. Great for mass storage that I do not think I will ever fill up. I back up everything on my computers with the Seagate external drive.
Summary: I have been using this drive for the past three years as a time machine backup drive. Very satisfied. It is not super quiet but the noise does not bother me. The LED light is fancy.. I am not using the drive in the bed room, therefore no sleeping issues. Overall, very nice hard drive.
Summary: I have two of these drives and with this new addition, I now have three HD's and I plan on buying another one in about 6 months. They just work. They are truly plug and play on my iMac desktop. Thank you seagate for making a HD that runs at 7200rpm's.
Summary: I bought this in Feb., 2010 for use with my Mac. It lasted till December, less than a year, when it began to clatter and heat up and was a total failure. Yes, it was easy to install and use while it lasted, but clearly useless after breaking. Disappointing given Seagate's reputation.
Summary: Simple plug and play setup, fast and quiet. I transferred 40 gigs of info from my old drive in probably twenty minutes with the Seagate plugged into the Firewire port and the old drive in USB. The manual is breathtaking in its brevity, so you have to search the Seagate site for more info.
Summary: I waited to write a review until I used this product long enough to give a reliable review. After nearly 5 months it has proved to be a good and reliable external hard drive! This has been my best experience with any external drive yet, and I've tried several different brands over the years!
