Customer Reviews of Seagate Backup Plus 1TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive, Red
Seagate portable TB hard drive7/15/2014
A nicely small and light Tb disk. I use it for backing up chunks of data when I am at other labs, since it can be inconvenient to directly copy home over the network.
Great external hard drive6/21/2014
Great external hard drive & memory. Light weight and is great for backing up your files (music, photos, movies, files & etc). In addition, it does not require a lot of USB power (I have an older laptop so that can be an issue with some of the other hard drives in the market). I would recommend this product.
Excellent easy external hard drive. Easy back up without the worries of virus taking all your information and never getting it back. 1 TB has alot of space for more storage without the price of buying many devices to get the storage. I would recommend this product for everyone to store or back up all your information.
Great product for backing up files and your computer. Easy to use.
Great One !2/23/2014
Thanks for item. I love it !
The Seagate Backup Plus 1 TB Portable Drive is Perfect for my needs. It has super fast transfer speeds with USB 3.0. It combines sleek good looks with a solid construction and perfect size. The 1 TB capacity is large enough that I formatted it into several partitions so I could use it as a backup drive and several smaller drives. I can not comment on the"Dashboard Software" because I did not use it. The drive performs flawlessly without using the included software.
Seagate's software is user-friendly and the device is tightly built and appears sturdy. Transfers from backup are fast.
So far everything is good about this product. The plug and play makes it easy to backup your files with ease. The price was certainly the factor that caught my attention in the first place. You get a lot of backup storage for a very nice price. Shipping was fast as well. This was an overall good transaction. Thanks.
Easy to use, but slow using USB 2.01/14/2014
I am disappointed in how much time this took to back up my files. Granted, I have an older desktop with Windows XP and USB 2.0, but it took 4 days of running 24 hours a day to back up about 600 GB.
Great backup for pictures1/8/2014
Great backup harddrive for digital pics. Great insurance in case your PC dies. Recommended.
It is a very nice piece of equipment. No problems installing it and putting it into service. Very much Plug 'n Play. At $59.99, I consider it a very nice bargain. I have a large amount of mp3 music and this is ideal for storage. I recently lost some saved information on an old laptop that crashed and I plan to faithfully use this for secure backup of sensitive information. I would recommend this to a friend.
Christmas gift - will follow up on performance12/17/2013
This was purchased as a Christmas gift for someone. I like that it came in different colors and was a good price. I will follow up with the recipient after they have had a chance to use it and amend the review as needed. Overall product looks good. We'll see how it performs.
This was a good price. I have not seen any colored portable hard drives, so this is a nice color and will differentiate my HDD from my husband's.
Seagate products are very reliable
Good delivery and works great.
Seagate 1TB HDD - Love It!12/10/2013
Great product, looks nice and slim, and data read/write is amazing!
This is a GREAT product.
Good support, Use somewhat confusing8/31/2013
I have two of these drives, one I'v e used on a Windows 7 machine for over a year without a hitch. When I bought one for my Windows 8 machine, the computer would lose recognition of the drive, which prompted a call to support. That was a very good experience, with a new download and pointers getting the drive up and running. I still find some confusion over the choices on the menus.
