Rated 5 out of 5 by from The drive comes with software built in for backing up which is useful but I bought this solely as large portable backup drive. It is slim, silent and fast plus it is powered by a USB port which means no power supply is necessary. I reserved online for store collection which was great as I could pick it up later that day. Definitely recommended.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Problematic The drive works OK, albeit not as fast as a 3.5" drive, but don't assume the included Backup Plus software will backup your machine including programs. It won't. It totally ignores the Windows and Program Files folders so you will not have a complete backup of your system. It's acceptable if all you want to do is copy data files. It would also have been preferable if the drive light flickered to show activity. It just sort of "breathes" in and out and is always on so there's no way of telling whether the drive's doing something or not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant device, compact, silent, runs cool, needs no external psu, very good value. Needed reformatting for MacOS (took 20 seconds so no problem), and their included software is not terribly...useful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Recommended. Works well and nearly silent. Much quicker than previous drives I've used to back-up my Mac.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have owned this External HDD for almost a year now. It is compact, light and easy to travel with. Good for backing up your files from laptop when on the move in case the laptop is damaged etc. Powers off the laptop, no adapter required. Very good buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is simply sweet and I love it. Quiet and unlike older drives I have. If Mac user don't bother loading Seagate software, as doesn't offer backup, just has a little bloatware, use Mac's Timemachine. Also don't think of buying Firewire or Thunderbolt cables as they seem to cost more than the drive, if you could get hold them away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product easy to use as a Back up or general storage

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Adequate Somewhat slow, the bundled so-called backup software is almost totally useless and irrelevant. Don't expect it to back up your hard drve - it just copies files to YouTube or a cloud storage area. The drive light stays permanently on - it doesn't flicker so you can't see if the drive's working or not. The supplied USB lead doesn't have a socket for an auxilliary PSU so it can't be used with some laptops/notebooks/tablets which don't output enough ooomph on their USB2 ports. Cheap & cheerful but there are better options out there.
