Works - but is incompatible with sleep function

Summary: The Seagate FreeAgent Hard Drive for Mac is easy to set up and get running with Time Machine. Backup is automatic and you don't have to think about it. Moving or copying files to the hard drive was also easy.
Summary: Simply it is so easy to use but no good security protection, and you have to keep it in good standing potion or it start making noise.. which could cause a big problem..which i am dealing now and i might have to sent it to company to fix that problem..
Summary: This drive was very easy to install and get running. The software is relatively easy to use, but is a bit limited. The problem I have with the drive is that my computer will not boot when it is plugged in.
Seagate FreeAgent Desk 1 TB USB 2.0 External Hard Drive

Summary: I have been pleased with the performance of this drive, but have few concerns. The drive co-exists with a USB Scanner, USB Keyboard, USB Mouse, (2) USB Printers, (2) Card Readers writers, and multiples USB flash drives. I only use the Seagate drive when I want to back up system files.
Quiet and striking, but flimsy stand and limited mac compatibility

Summary: This drive is incredibly quiet and seems fast, which are my most important criteria for pre-packaged external drives. However, I wish more thought was put into the drivers, the lighting, and the stands.
Summary: First time I've had anything rated in a number higher than Gb! This item appears to do what it's designed to, and if you're reading this you'll know what that is - it provides an onsite backup facility. (Which won't be much good if your house burns down) There isn't a full terabyte available.
Summary: Only having used this for a few weeks, I cannot comment on its longevity or robustness. However, you can save yourself some money as a Mac user by purchasing this PC-formatted drive and reformatting it yourself using Disk Utility.
