    It's tiny, lightweight, matches my MacBook Pro if you care about those things. I had roughly 50G of music and another 30G of pics It's tiny, lightweight, matches my MacBook Pro if you care about those things. I had roughly 50G of music and another 30G of pics and it took 1-2 hours to safety transfer over. Easy set-up; plug it in to your USB, Time Machine picks up on it, downloads immediately. Not wireless, cord is pretty short, and no Wifi connects like the AirPort has. Few things:
    - Gets warm/(hot) after being on for a while - which so far I'm not worried about. I'm mostly using this device to save stuff to that I won't be using right away anyway.
    - Also a bit noisy when left on (USB plugged in) for longer than about an hour. It's a quiet whir at best but something to note...
    Basically if you'll be constantly using your hard drive, you should try to invest the extra bucks on something more quiet and built for duration. But, if you're like me and only need oh geez about 20,00,000 MB of storage, then this hot buy is for you.

    We tried for over an hour to get this thing working on MAC OS X 10.9.5. First format it for only MAC (not for Time machine). Ever We tried for over an hour to get this thing working on MAC OS X 10.9.5. First format it for only MAC (not for Time machine). Every time the thing asked us to register and register and register and never possible to drag and simpl drop. Then we found on a help forum the solution: seagate.com's homepage gives a porogram so you can download a NTFS driver. Done this, the thing works. I do not understand that Apple recommends this hard disk without having this drive already installed on MAC or telling clients to install this drive!! May be these guys are becoming lazy with the huge profits they make....

The first unit never worked, I plugged it into the computer and got an error message saying the disc needed repair. Exchanged it for another unit which worked for a few days then, when I went to unplug it, the USB connector broke off. Returned it.

    If you want to do anything more that use this drive to do anything more than back-up your Facebook files...save your money.

    I g If you want to do anything more that use this drive to do anything more than back-up your Facebook files...save your money.

    I got this in the hopes of being able to use it to store large files, and to share them between my computers.

    Nope.

Exterior casing is durable and matches my Macbook Pro perfectly. Would be nice if it came with a sleeve to protect it when transporting it in my laptop bag. The price from the Apple Store is really competitive compared to Costco. I have had LaCie and WD drives and the Seagate seems to be the most durable. However, always backup your backups as these drives do eventually die.
