Summary: I was a little disappointed that I was not able to use the dashboard feature on my apple computer. I bought this drive and had a choice to get it for an apple but when I installed it the dashboard feature and options were not available.
Summary: Think, thin, THIN external hard drive! Works like any other except its not as loud. I like the little blue light indicator feature which tells you when it's plugged in and backing up. Buy this for the size alone!
Summary: I have made it my personal mission to avoid technology that involves trying to get a device to work for hours and hours and hours while your life flies by you at the speed of light. When I cannot avoid that, I try to save you, the Amazon buyer, from time-intensive soul-sucking not-working thingamajigs. This is one of them. The Seagate Slim started off promising enough. We plugged the device into our MacBook Pro and loaded music and text files with no issues.
Summary: Just plug and use--no messing with instructions. As with all the other portable hard drives I've used, this one doesn't do well going from Mac to PC and vice versa, and you end up having to reformat or clear everything out when you use this from one to the other. Quick and easy.
Summary: I love to use this when I am on the go. I put my movies and music and work files on it. I use it a lot on vacation and to store copies of documents. I like to take a lot of photos and need a place to store it. I like to have movies that the kids can wacth on the go. This holds tons of photos as well as music. I can keep up with every thing in a little device.Portable and handy.
Summary: The Seagate Slim USB Portable Hard Drive is a nice backup for your files. It's a light, very thin hard drive, and is formatted for Mac computers. While that's one of their selling points, I think the ultra portable-ness of this hard drive is actually a bigger draw. (A lot of electronics are compatible with Mac right out of the box due to the whole Mac plug-and-play thing, so I'm not sure why they felt this was such a big deal.) Nice little product, recommended.
Summary: This has been a great hard drive for extra storage. I have ended up just using it as a drive I can store things on, more so than a true back up drive. The software included is not all that great and in my opinion a true automatic back up comes from a stand alone product that makes uses of any HD you see fit. I have put this drive through its paces and it still performs well.
