Saved my laptop!

  • Summary: This is a simple backup portable hard drive. I backed up my MacBook Pro quite often thinking that one day my computer will crash. And that was a reality! My laptop deleted all of these applications by itself and messing up everything!

Seagate Backup Plus Slim didn't last a week

  • Summary: I bought the Seagate Backup Plus Slim for the Mac. It didn't last 1 week and it crashed. I lost all the videos and photos that i transferred. I called Seagate for data recovery and a replacement but after a good initial call, i didn't hear back.

Corruption

20 July 2015
  • Summary: This drive is a complete waste of money and resources. Experienced data corruption (on a brand new item- only had for 7 months) which the manufacturer won't address "without cost to you.

You wouldn't know it's even there.

TriedandTrue, Amazon
5 July 2015
  • Summary: Perfect. Compact almost like a pack of cigarettes, running silently behind my computer. One word of caution. Do not run it though a dub, even 3.0. Connect it directly to a USB on computer.

Bad purchase

Robert N, Apple Store
6 June 2015
  • Summary: I bought my first seagate back up drive to use with time machine. It worked at first. After about 8 months, it stopped working and I lost all of the data I had stored on the drive. I got a second drive under the warranty; it lasted about 6 months.

Terrible

Erick P, Apple Store
2 June 2015
  • Summary: I bought this a few months ago and now my macbook doesn't recognize it. I tried EVERY troubleshooting solution provided on Seagate's support website and nothing has worked. Every time I plug in the drive it freezes my computer! Mac users, don't waste your time on this product.

Very slow for a USB 3 drive

Peter S, Apple Store
12 April 2015
  • Summary: Bought at Apple store, but it has been a disappointment. So far it has been reliable. I use 2 as backups for my 2015 photo library. Copying from one to the other seems extremely slow. while its size is nice, its slowness makes it inconvenient from my viewpoint.

Avoid it

Bradley R, Apple Store
25 February 2015
  • Summary: I should have researched this before buying, but was in the store and made the assumption it would be what I needed. Once it was plugged in and the software was loaded it began to backup my stuff.
