Summary: The Seagate Backup Plus 1 TB Portable Drive is Perfect for my needs. It has super fast transfer speeds with USB 3.0. It combines sleek good looks with a solid construction and perfect size. The 1 TB capacity is large enough that I formatted it into several partitions so I could use it as a backup drive and several smaller drives. I can not comment on the"Dashboard Software" because I did not use it. The drive performs flawlessly without using the included software.
Summary: So far everything is good about this product. The plug and play makes it easy to backup your files with ease. The price was certainly the factor that caught my attention in the first place. You get a lot of backup storage for a very nice price. Shipping was fast as well. This was an overall good transaction. Thanks.
Summary: I am disappointed in how much time this took to back up my files. Granted, I have an older desktop with Windows XP and USB 2.0, but it took 4 days of running 24 hours a day to back up about 600 GB.
