Excerpt: Building a digital movie data base w/ Mac mini and this 5TB HD hooked to my TV and this HD satified the end goal! The puzzling thing is why would Seagate not mention that this is also MAC compatiable? Strickly Windows. For those on MACS, you can't go wrong with Seagate.. just have the drive properly formatted and away you go! Oh, and the 3.0 USB is sweeeeet.. as long as you hook to another 3.0 USB, transfer speeds are sick!
Pros: Durable, Fast Connectivity, Mac Compatiable, Quiet, Reliable, Usb 30 What, Versatile
Excerpt: I use this with my iMac, it is split into 3 partitions. One for Time Machine, one for a daily Carbon Copy Cloner and the remaining for my Movies. I now only need one hard drive on my desktop, much neater and cleaner looking.
Pros: Durable, Fast Connectivity, Quiet, Reliable, Versatile
Excerpt: This is a great product for backing up your computer or as extra storage. I am using mine to store pictures on. It is a great size to sit on the desk and works great. As soon as you plug it in, it is ready to store your data.
Excerpt: Used as a backup Drive for Video/Mobile DJ. Its a bit different than Firewire800 to Thunderbolt as USB power isnt not a constant tranfer rate as fulll time power Firewire/Thunderbolt. This is the only disappointment but knowing this the 2nd time the drive was used out. I do noticed a difference with how the drive performs versus how the firewire drive performed. In case youre wondering I have a Late 2013 15" Macbook Pro Retina with 16 gig RM and 500 GIG HD.
