Customer Reviews of Seagate Backup Plus 1TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive, Black
Great portable drive1/4/2014
It amazes me that a drive with this much storage can be powered via the USB connection. I also obtained a free NTFS driver from the Seagate website for my older Mac so I can back up both plaforms. Nice!
Good produce, and easy to use.12/31/2013
Good produce, and easy to use.
Easy to use. Works straight out of the box. Comes with a usb and I can save stuff from any device on there. Even if i somehow figure out a way to use up all memory on the device it also comes with its own cloud storage which is a easy download from the disc that comes with it.
great price for a great product - what a great value!
works ok for me10/1/2013
This drive is exactly what I wanted. Very portable, very fast, and it works on my Mac, PC, and the USB port for my TV.
Works great for all types of backup and document storage. Thanks!
Good price. I like that you can backup multiple computers with the software. Hoping to try this out in a few weeks on my parents computer too. It's really quiet.

Best price.........Thank you.
Easy to use7/5/2013
I have an an IMac with OS 10.7 Installed. There is no power cord to worry about, just plug into the USB slot. I clicked on the installer for MAC's and just followed the on screen instructions. There is the option to have it be strictly MAC formatted, or being able to go between MAC and Windows, without reformatting. Once installed, it is just a matter of placing the stuff to be backed up on to the drive. I am not sure how well it works on the Windows platform, but it is very easy to use and without problems on the Mac.
Not much to say, it does what it's suppose to do and had no problems getting it hooked up. The backup software directions aren't great but I have used backup programs in the past so I was able to figure out what I needed to do.
I've only had this 1tb drive for a month and I'm very pleased with it. All my data is backed up and it only took one third of the drive. All my drives are Seagate. I'm very satisfied with the quality of these drives. They have the longest warranty in this category. It has its own software for backing up so all you do is follow instructions and sit back and let it do its thing.
Fast and Excellent
so far so good5/2/2013
Good price on a refurbed hard drive, arrived promptly. Haven't plugged it in yet so assuming and hoping for no issues.
Life is full of amazing moments you want to remember forever. The Backup Plus portable drive goes where you go, providing easy, plug-and-play backups. So you know that no matter where “life happens," your memories are always protected. Highly recommended.
I'm compleatly satisafied with the HD. It is easy to use and set up. Only minor complaint is instructions arein video form. I prefer written
Good Portable Hard Drive2/24/2013
I have used this drive for a few weeks. I use it with my Mac so reformatted it to HFS+ file format. Speed is on par with other portable hard drive, not super fast. It is faster when I use it with my Thunderbolt adapter. The very good thing about these Seagate drive is that you can easily plug them into other interface adapters. I use Thunderbolt at home and work and use USB when travel.
I waited long time for that deal!!!1/30/2013
It's excellent hard drive with USB 3.0 and backup option & SATA adapter. Price wasl also lowest on the market.
Seems a little slow (without USB 3.0)1/30/2013
Would probably be faster if I had USB 3.0, but as is, it seems significantly slower than my LaCie external drive.
This external usb harddrive is detected automatically by my Windows computer without need to install any driver or need to reboot my machine. The drive is super fast and does not make a lot of noise. I ran it for over hours and it feel warm but not hot to touch.
This is an awesome usb external hard drive. It is super fast and makes hardly any noise. It was easily detected by my Windows Server and did not even need to reboot my machine. The shipment was fast and hassel free. I will definately purchase more usb hard drives and recomend to all my friends.
Excellent in every way!10/9/2012
Fast delivery. Great price. Good seller. Will do business with this seller again!
