Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't buy this The device failed in less than 12 months, Maplin will replace the unit but suggested contacting Seagate direct to try and retrieve the data, they were less than helpful but can recover the information from there faulty device, but it will cost £500......... So if you buy this device you will need to buy 2, so you can backup your backup....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid, Slim, Silent Solid, Slim, Silent. Elegant brushed silver finish. Purchased as a backup disk for a newly acquired MacBook Air. Compact design; means it's easy to take wherever the MacBook goes. I would consider buying for a desktop machine to recover some desk real estate. ( I did not install the included backup software, preferring to use Time Machine).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Slim and Lighter Bought this product last month and it was delivered for free within few days. It is slim and lighter than the WD HDD I previously had with similar specifications.

I would like to use this to back up my photos which are currently on a Mac in iPhoto format. Is this storage device compatible?

Asked by: Dr Nic
The drive would need to be formatted on the MAC to utilise the HFS file system, once you do this you can copy your information onto it.
