  • Paragon SW Does Not Work With Time Machine
    Reviewed by Charles - December 30, 2019

    This is by no means a show stopper. That info is hidden in plan view if one wants to download & read the Quick Start Guide before purchasing. For me not a problem, I just reformated the 4TB. If you are not tech savy, or don't have access to a person who is, spend a bit of extra money and purchase the version for Mac. This is my second unit, purchased one (Mac version) about 2 years ago, has worked flawlessly, have out grown it's capacity, so added another 4TB for backups. Note Windows version is black & Mac version is white. The hub is handy as I am running out of USB ports for my iPhone & iMac Mini, and other gadgets :-)

  • Great External Hard Drive
    Verified BuyerReviewed by TheElf - February 29, 2020

    This is my 3rd Seagate - Backup Plus. I'm a photographer and I use this drive to save my photos, all my professional jobs and all my personal family photos. Seagate - Backup Plus drives are guaranteed 2 years, so I use it for 2 years, then buy another Seagate - Backup Plus drive to use the next 2 years. I then use the previous Seagate - Backup Plus drive as a backup of the new drive (which is not connected to the computer except to backup the new drive on a regular schedule). I have found these Seagate drives to be very durable and have had Zero problems. Yes, I do recommend these Seagate Seagate - Backup Plus drives.

  • Do not trust this product for Mac!
    Reviewed by Josh - November 3, 2016

    I bought this product three days ago to help with storage of video files to work with on my mac for an upcoming project. The night before the project was due (today), the drive crashed. I contacted Seagate and they advised the drive corrupted. They do offer (for sale even if under warranty) a recovery program for use with pc but it does not work with mac. If you want to pay more fees, you can physically send them in the device to recover data, but that is not covered by warranty even though the device is less than a week old. I trusted this device with important files. Don't make the same mistake I did.
