Windows Ready, MAC requires more work

The product is set up for windows out of the box but with a lot of fiddling you can use it with your MAC. My Seagate portable external drive seems to be doing its job with a compact attractive design.

  • from Toronto, ON

The product looks great and is nice and small. No issues!

dashboard backup s/w not working

The supplied dashboard backup software doesn’t detect drive. Windows does, installed dashboard from drive so I know drive & cable are OK. Certainly not plug & play. Their website support was not at all helpful.

I am quite satisfied with the product

Compact and working good as expected.

Amazing Until It No Longer Works

I purchased my hard disk on January 1, 2015 and it was easy to use. It is small and light so it is easy to carry. The only problem is that yesterday as I was using it, it just stopped working. I've tried another computer, different ports, another cable but in all cases the computers recognized that something had been plugged in but couldn't recognize the hard drive. When I plug it into the computer it make a quiet fast paced beeping sounds for a couple seconds with the white light on. However, nothing loads on my computer. I've reached out to Seagate as I'm still under warranty and they provided a lot of helpful advice but it seems at the end of the day, I will have to send it in.

Not very compatible with Mac

Bought this item last week for my Mac. First, it took about 3 days just to get it working, had to download whole bunch of stuff, and do a lot of updates, and about 20 restart was required. Then my Mac crashed, cause one of the update that was recommended by seagate was corrupted.

great buy...stored all my files with ease. With a Mac though, you need to download the enclosed driver as it is presently in a PC format.

Excelent Product

Installation was easy. Work as expected.

  • from Victoria, BC

Excellent Product

Ordered this on sale and it was better than expected. I was very impressed with the small size and light weight. Perfect for taking my media between rooms. Super easy set up, just drag and drop.

  • from Niagara Falls, ON

Extremely satisfied

Good value for the price. Compact and easy to set up. I am going to purchase a second unit.

  • from Brampton, ON

Good buy from Best buy

Easy installation and Working good as of now. It would be better if some cover provided the HDD.

  • from Welland, ON

Great product!

Well put together, looks sharp and was easy to install. The test of time will tell how this holds up, but so far it's been a lifesaver.

Small, quiet and portable. Very convenient to save files, etc. :)

  • from Dartmouth, NS


Good price and easy to install. My son had no issue with it at all.

  • from Montréal, QC

Just as advertised!

Small, compact and quiet. Works well with no manufacturers software to install. If you want a compact portable HD, this is it.

Backup & Utility Drive

I have several of these drives. Have been using them as backups and general utility drives. The portability, speed, and ease of use make them a joy to work with.

  • from Guelph, ON

Great product to buy for backups

I just bought it couple a weeks ago, and it's works like a charm.
