Movie Trailer

This is a great little drive. I was looking for something on which to store my movie, something relatively portable, yet with enough capacity to store a large number of high resolution 1080P movies. This drive fills the bill and then some. I am using with my Mac Pro, and it was truly 'plug n play.' All I did was plug it in and away it went. The USB 3.0 makes transferring movies to the drive pretty darned quick and playback to my TV is fast enough that there is never a pause. The movies stream smoothly from the drive. I a more than pleased with this drive. I highly recommend it.

Good unless you get a faulty one

I've purchased three of these My only complaint is the circuit board is faulty on one, which also lost my data into RAW form when it erased a partition randomly after about a month of use The others work fine though and they are cheap, and the circuit board comes apart easily for replacement

My First Seagate Product

Couldn't be easier. I've used WD external drives till now, and this one is at least as easy to use. Plug and play says it all. I have not installed any of the software, I just use it as a backup drive, and extra storage for video, photos, movies, books, etc. I would buy this again in a heartbeat.

Excellent performance

As a Mac user, this drive was extremely easy to set up and is a lot faster then my USB 2.0 drives. No problems with this drive after a few months use. Seagate has been good to me in the past and expect it to keep performing as usual.
