Small in size but big in storage space

Easy to use, just plug and play for my pc. Works as expected. Good value for a good name brand.

Not Such a Good Purchase After All

Well, I would like to give a better review, but the truth is that I haven't been able to get it to run on my Windows 10 PC as of yet. I plug it into the PC's USB port, and it starts beeping; it doesn't stop beeping until I disconnect. Although I can find the drive listed under Printers and Devices, it doesn't show up as a drive with a letter on the hard drive.... I have been forced to seek help from the IT guy at my place of employment (he's looking into it) because I can't find any support options at all for installing this unit from Seagate.... That lack of support is critical in times like this, and it just isn't there. Too bad, as it looked like an awesome little unit... :-(

Best purchase

Bought it as an internal drive upgrade for my PS4. Inside the casing is a Seagate 7mm 128MB cache Mobile Drive, instead of the Samsung M9T I thought it would have. This is a way better drive with more cache, faster read/write and also void of any beeping problems.

Slim and works well , lIke it very much!

Automatic eject

This hard drive constantly "ejects" itself (error message constantly that it has been ejected improperly when it hasn't). There is apparently a software update but I have downloaded that and it can't "see" the hard drive (despite its being visible in my menu). I have a Macbook Pro. I am very, very disappointed with this external drive.

  • from Toronto, ON

The portable external hard drive is good

  • from Edmonton, AB

Simply Amazing!

Its my first purchase of Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB 2.5" USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive and I like it.

  • from Toronto, ON

Just What I Wanted

It works very well. I have a MacBook Pro which had no trouble recognizing the drive .... easy installation and good price

  • from Ottawa, ON

Nice backup hard drive

just plug it in and you can start use it. Also came with 200G online One Drive.

  • from London, ON


This drive is NOT Mac ready as you are led to believe by the write up. It takes a lot of messing around to make it work on a Mac. Very disappointed by the write up on Bestbuy's site. NOT plug and play for a Mac

  • from Ottawa, ON

Not MAC compatible

looks good but didn't work. i checked and double checked before purchasing. it should have worked. but It needs to be reformated for use with Mac....But you can't reformat it if your Mac can't recognise it. My iMac plus two macbook Pro's were unable to recognise the drive. I tried for about 6 hours utilising apple support, seagate support and good old google. No problem though. Bestbuy did a quick refund.

Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB

Using as main daily backup. So far no issues.

  • from Oshawa, ON

Perfect for my son's Xbox - 5 stars

Got this on sale, and for the price it was worth a shot. I am sure that this will work as advertised, but it also works perfectly with my son's Xbox One. Seamless integration so there are no "locations" to search in order to find the game he wants. As an added bonus, he can bring it to his friends house, login to their Xbox and be able to play his games on that Xbox as well! This is a super HDD that is even more versatile than advertised!

  • from Laval, QC

Love it!

Very small and fits everywhere. Perfect for my vacation pictures.

  • from Pickering, ON

Prety good

  • from Toronto, ON

Great Value

Great Little Unit. The added Cloud based storage from onedrive makes this an even sweeter deal.

  • from Toronto, ON

  • from Brampton, ON

great price/performance sleek USB 3.0 drive

It is the best performance external backup conventional hard drive I have used so far. I have tested the R/W performance of this drive using CrystalDiskMark and it comes very close to the 130MB/sec both R/W, which is quite impressive. It is also very quiet drive and hardly noticeable when it is connected. I also like the design of the case (aluminum top cover and separate USB adapter). I didn't open the drive to check the content though just to keep the warranty in tact. All-in-all I think it is a great value so I bought a second one within a couple of days while the sale was still going on.

  • from Edmonton, AB

Not user-friendly

If you always busy i do not recommend this product. Very complicated have to download software every Computer.

  • from Pictou NS


I was interested in the 4TB but it was a one day sale not everyone checks their email every day. I would like to see the 4TB sale again
