Excerpt: I work with large files and documentations and I travel a lot which requires me to seek the services of an external hard drive. So last month I headed to SM CyberZone in North EDSA and shop for the best brand of hard drive the stores could offer me.
Unit no longer works with Time Machine (January 2014)

Summary: When new, this backup system paired easily with my Time Machine on my Macbook Pro laptop. Now it will no longer be recognized by Time Machine. I even tried deleting all of the old files in the Seagate to try to start again (and I emptied the trash on my Mac after doing this). The best I could get after many attempts (the computer could not "see" it until I rebooted quite a few times) was to use it manually to at least back up my Mac libraries for music, video, and...
Summary: Love this hard drive so much a bought another. Easy to use, slim, fast, dependable. I bought my first Seagate drive after my Lacie failed based on Seagate's reputation and now I only buy Seagate drives.
Summary: Got this a little under a year ago, and it still works like brand new. It's quiet, sleek, and aesthetically pleasing (goes perfect with my white macbook). Cons? None. I highly recommend this product.
Summary: After researching many backup hard-drives for my iMac G5, I decided that this Seagate unit was very well priced for what it provided. Unfortunately though, when I first hooked it up and tried to download the entire contents of my hard-drive, nothing would work. There were virtually no helpful directions and no manual came with the unit. When I tried to talk to Seagate's technical support, they were of no use whatsoever.
Summary: This is a top performing drive no question about it. The 5 year warranty alone should separate it from the pack and be a top selling point considering most hard drive manufacturers offer 2/3 years. Seagate has also lowered their warranty on their newer products to 3 years, so take advantage of their older items. I know some people are interested in knowing what separates the standard version with the mac one.
