I have to say that I absolutely COULD NOT live without my new Portable External Hard Drive. For years I've had an external hard drive but it wasn't something that was easily used on other devices. It was not easily portable. After looking at several different models, I decided to purchase the Seagate 1TB Slim Portable External Hard Drive. Not only do I like the smooth sleek look of this hard drive, but also the ease of use between both Mac and Windows computers. Since I use both on a daily basis, I have found that having this hard drive is better than having any flash drive to easily share files between the two. I also feel like my life is on this fabulous little device. It fits perfectly in my purse, or pocket. Making portability a breeze. Set up was a piece of cake. I love the Drag and Drop option. I bought the 2.5-Inch Portable External Hard Drive Hd EVA Shockproof Carrying Travel Case to go along with it. The bottom line, YES I would recommend this to a friend... every day, any day!!! I LOVE IT!

Manuals & Guides
I am a 63 year old man and am legally blind. I have had one of these for over a year with ABSOLUTELY no issues. I wanted another one to store movies that were ISO files. The new one looks just a little bit different but it works the same. I use both of them for my lap top, which uses Windows 8.1 and a desk top that uses Windows 10. Just plugged in and started saving files with no real set up needed. As far as speed, some folks just need to have a little patience. Or, spend more money. I did notice that it did seem to work faster on USB 3 ports as opposed to USB 2 but not that much. I did learn something that I will pass on to folks that I learned from a turtorial about this product. The man warned that you SHOULD NOT tap, hold, move, etc while the device is working. It could disrupt both the device and the compute. Otherwise for the money you can do no better for storage. I can't speak for daily use or running it every day but so far can't ask for any better and if I need more space I will buy another.
Been using Seagate hard drives for years
This is my fifth Seagate external hard drive, meaning I now have 05 Seagate hard drives hooked to my computer. Yes, I am OCD about back-ups. This is my third 1 TB. Back-ups are quick and easy. The only "trick" I had to learn with my first such drive (many years ago) was the limitation of 10 back-ups/separate folders. Keep the older back-ups deleted and I have yet to have any problems whatsoever.
Works very well!
This portable hard drive works very well and as intended! It is very light, and I am using this Seagate Backup Plus Slim 1TB portable hard drive to back up multiple computers. I have had no problems at all using it! I recommend this item highly!
Just use to back up my vids
Does what its supposed to... without breaking the bank!
Bought an external Seagate storage drive for my son's XBox One, this has gave him plenty of extra storage and works great. Highly recommend it.
This external hard drive is so easy to install and use. Just open the box and plug it in. No directions needed!
Great travel drive
Excellent compact portable hard drive
Great Price for a Lot of Storage Space
Needed to upgrade my old backup storage for my (personal) files. Really liked the old Seagate Flex-Go I had, but its getting old and needed an upgrade. Contacted a friend who is an IT pro. He recommended the Seagate Hard Drive he has had for the last two years - with no problems. Looking for the model he had, I believe this Backup Plus 1TB is actually a newer model. When I typed it in the search engine, Walmart came up - who considers this model a Best Choice/Seller AND it was on sale for only $60 !!! Free shipping, shows up in my mailbox, open the box, plug it in and in only a couple minutes I was up and running again. The rest of my life should work out this well...
