Seagate Backup Plus Slim didn't last a week
Barbara N, Apple Store
1 week ago
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: I bought this drive to store my entire music/movies library. It died on the second day - Disk Utility recognizes it, but is unable to repair it. A giant waste of money - I will be taking it back to Apple and spending twice the amount on a G-drive, which have a far better track record.
