Good backup drive for Macintosh Time Machine

E.S., Amazon
2 December 2013
  • Summary: Bought this to replace another hard drive that is failing to use as my backup hard drive for my Mac using Time Machine. I plugged it in and selected it in the Time Machine preferences and it went to work backing up my main hard drive. Works as it should with no hassles setting it up at all. What I really like is that it turns on when the computer is turned on, and off when you shut the computer off.

  • Summary: My husband and I have had this external drive for five years and it is still going strong! Not only do you NOT hear it unless it is as quiet as a tomb but it is EXTREMELY easy to set up.

  • Summary: There's not much to say other than that this hard drive is incredibly easy to use for backing up a Mac. Just plug it in and use Time Machine.

Pissed

  • Summary: I like the space, but I was pissed when I found this hard drive has 2.0 usb and no firewire. I thought I had the right hard drive. I didnt read the specs correctly. This thing is affordable, but slower than a snail. 3.0usb or firewire is the only way to go. Dont waste your money people, stay up to date!!

As advertised

  • Summary: I have an older (approx 5 yrs) Intel 20" iMac and needed more storage space for Time Capsule. I initially purchased a Seagate 2TB drive from Costco that said it was Mac and PC compatible. Despite many attempts, I was never able to get a backup to complete. The backup always froze a short amount into it and required my to abort/restart/power off. I finally returned the drive. I looked for one that was designated as specifically compatible with a Mac.

Quiet, fast, and plenty of space!

  • Summary: First of all, I am probably not the best person to be writing a review on something electronic, since most of what I know is pretty basic. However, I have been using this desktop hard drive now for about 2 weeks, and have had no problems with it. It's so quiet you can't even hear that it's on, and transferring large image files only takes a few minutes.

Incredibly Slow!

P. Ward, Amazon
25 September 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this one when my 6 year old Iomega hard drive died. It was simple to set up. Time Machine had no problems locating it and starting the backup. That was 10 hours ago. It's taken that long to back up 20 of 250 GB to be backed up. Time Machine tells me it is going to take 3 more days to finish the backup. That's unreasonably slow. I would never buy this brand again nor recommend it. This is not acceptable.

Junk. Stay away!

Earlysville resident, Amazon

  • Summary: The drive becomes intermittently unresponsive doing backups of my recent-vintage iMac. Most recent attempt (after replacing the cable, and re-partitioning for drive) got stuck after 500Kb, out of the 500 Gb that I want to back up. My favorite: after about an hour, Time Machine helpfully calculated the time remaining at 122,904,321 days (i.e., 300,000 years).
