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.
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.
Worked within 30 seconds of plugging it in. Made for Mac time machine. Love it!

Summary: Never had anything as easy to install as this. I did nothing, and it just found my Mac or my Mac found it, and it started to back everything up all by itself. It does so every hour, automatically. And it has the best warranty I found; five years.
Summary: If you need to enlarge your disk storage, this is a perfect solution. Easy to install easy to use, just plug it into two of your USB ports and use away. Great way to share files between to different computers. I got this because it is designed to travel, less risk of loosing your data from bigger external drives. My LapTop HD is rather small and I can't add a whole lot of new files that are very large. But with this drive no problem.
Summary: I have been a fan of Seagate portable drives ever since I used one for the first time several years ago. They're fast, stylish, and built well. This one is no exception to those rules. Compared to my other Western Digital external hard drive, it is lightning fast at transferring files. I purchased the Seagate DockStar Seagate FreeAgent DockStar Network Adapter STDSA10G-RK (White) along with it, and they work well together.
