Summary: I have a Western Digital which makes hardly any noise at all. The Seagate drive has a jarring noise when it starts up. Its ok for the price but if given a choice knowing what I know, i would got with a western digital.
Excerpt: The device seems great and the best deal was here at bhphotovideo.com. I took one star off because of Apple.Apple's file systems stink. I had to transfer all the files from my daughter's failing external drive to a new drive. The old drive was formatted using her Macbook, and I thought it would save a lot of time if I bought her the Mac-formatted external drive instead of getting a generic one and formatting it myself.WRONG!
Pros: Best price, Fast Connectivity, Quiet, Reliable
