5.0 out of 5 stars Mac and PC without formatting the drive.
The drive is slick, attaches seamlessly to my Mac and my PC without having to format the drive or losing any previously backed up data. Thin and decently portable as well. Very happy with my purchase.

1.0 out of 5 stars Drive failure in first few weeks
Unfortunately, I did not purchase this item at my local B&M store or I would have been able to return it and get a new same or similar item in exchange. I don't fault Amazon but I don't know that I will purchase this sort of thing online in the future.

The drive failed completely within a few weeks of first use and because it was outside of the return window...

1.0 out of 5 stars Drive failure in first few weeks, April 10 2013

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 1TB Portable External Hard Drive USB 3.0 (Black)(STBU1000100) (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Personal Computers)
Unfortunately, I did not purchase this item at my local B&M store or I would have been able to return it and get a new same or similar item in exchange. I don't fault Amazon but I don't know that I will purchase this sort of thing online in the future.

The drive failed completely within a few weeks of first use and because it was outside of the return window for Amazon, I had to deal with Seagate's warranty. Be forewarned, Seagate replaced my defective drive with a RECONDITIONED drive and further, I had to pay for the return shipping. They also don't provide for data recovery, except for a coupon worth a small percentage of the total cost for data recovery services.

I hope the replacement drive lasts longer than the brand new one I had a few weeks ago, but I won't count on it. I already have multiple backup systems, but now I feel like this one was a total waste of money, time and effort. I won't buy Seagate next time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Poor craftmanship, Nov. 1 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 1TB Portable External Hard Drive USB 3.0 (Black)(STBU1000100) (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Personal Computers)
The drive is great, small and portable. With the aluminum body, it dissipate heat better then plastic, but the portion with all the connection ports that attached to drive came apart very easily.

It runs with no problem. I trust this brand.
I prefer portable ones even if for the same amount of money, unportable ones provide larger space. Portable ones is more convenient, especially for laptops.

I love this, USB 3.0 works and so does USB 2.0, it is pretty sleek in my opinion, and I really like it. It transfers files pretty fast and I would say that it is compatible since my school's computer is really crap
