5.0 out of 5 stars Seagate GoFlex 1TB External backup hard drive Aug. 11 2011
By wessong
The first time I used the Seagate, it took a few hours to backup my whole system. Now I get weekly reminders when there is new data/files to be backed, and subsequent backups take mere minutes. This is an excellent product that I would highly recommend. Plug & play, quiet, portable--smaller than a DVD case--plugs into a USB port, and is powered by the computer. Have backed up our PC & laptop.

5.0 out of 5 stars So much space July 26 2011
Verified Purchase
If you are not a big HD movie editing guy, 1TB is huge! I used it for Time Machine (MBP mid-2010 OS X 10.7) and I filled with tons of medias. still 600GB free! You obviousvly have to format the drive to HFS+ on Mac, but it comes ready for Windows (NTFS). One last thing... sooooooo fast with FireWire 800 adapter!

5.0 out of 5 stars I love it. Aug. 20 2012
Verified Purchase
I went through three WD passports in 15 months or so. Each time they would just not work. I couldn't reformat, no computer could access them. An absolute nightmare. Luckily I have had this for a while now as my second backup and have had no problems. I own two of these and am very happy with them. I recommend this over the passport any day. It is what it says it is, a portable external HD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what I ordered July 24 2012
Verified Purchase
I bought this Hard drive to back up my IMac. It was very simple to setup, just plug it in say yes when the window pops up to confirm you want to use it as your Time Machine back up and away you go. I would recommend you buy the firewire or USB 3.0 cable adapter if you are backing up a big quantity of video to speed up the backup process but 2.0 does work well, just a lot slower. Price point was excellent value as well. Very good purchase!
