When I first bought this (the 4Tb version) I'd have given it a good review - worked at USB3 from the USB port with both my Macbook Pro and a Windows desktop (using NTFS and Fuse for R/W compatibility). I wanted it as a 'one drive' for all my files, media, iTunes library etc when I'm travelling for work, rather than the 2-3 smaller drives I'd used previously.

Unfortunately as others have found a few months in it just stopped working on me. My Mac no longer recognised it. I assumed it was the Apple/USB3 issues in Yosemite and connected it via a USB 2 hub but no joy. Tried swapping cables many times, still no joy.

At this point I managed to get it detected via a USB 2 port on the W7 box (USB3 didn't work), so completely reformatted the disk, low level format, then a low level disk check which came back clean. The drive still would not work from a USB3 port but I started to copy my libraries back to the drive on the same machine. Immediately I get I/O errors again.

Possibly 4Tb on a portable bus powered drive is over ambitious at the moment (notably 2*2Tb of this model is cheaper than 1*4Tb and I can only see one other portable 4Tb on the market still) but I would strongly recommend going for the smaller options and doubling up if necessary. The fact that it worked well for a few months then failed is frustrating (when it worked it was good!) and apparently pushes me out of most warranty options - the worst of all worlds. The delayed fail for this model seems to be the commoner fault both here and on other forums I've tried.

Style Name: 1TBColour Name: Silver Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I've used this HDD on both Windows and Mac computers, it's preformatted to be used on both which is good:
- nice design, plastic body with a metallic appearance
- works with USB 2 and USB 3, the cable is included; the HDD is plug and play
- note that the cable is the same as supplied with WD drives, USB at one end and what looks like SATA at the other (not micro-USB)
- the device is powered by the USB cable therefore no additional power cables needed
- very small and quiet unit, easily transportable and build quality feels good
- there's an LED on top which indicates it's powered, but nothing to show it's being accessed (read/write), which I feel is a major let down
- it's slimmer than other drives (e.g. WD) of the same size
- at it's current price of 56GBP, I think it's a bargain
- it does come with software already installed on the HDD (for backing up, etc.) but you don't need to install it which is a huge benefit in my view.

I use this HDD as a backup drive but it'll work just as well as a portable storage unit. Overall I'm really pleased with it and would definitely recommend it to others.

Style Name: 1TBColour Name: Silver Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have owned a few of these drives and they never fail to impress. They are nearly silent and come with some pretty useful software which will show you in great detail, how to use this drive, making the most of its features. Like the fact that the drive enters a sleep mode after a certain period to conserve electricity, this does not affect performance though as it quickly spins back to life once it is needed. I guess its hard to stand out in the world of hard drive production although this works fantastically well and has not given me a single problem, very highly recommended.

This is a really slim and compact hard drive that has a huge capacity for the price. It's fast and quiet, and great value (although it has to be said that prices for memory are getting lower all the time).

The preinstalled software is easy to install and use, and as well as being compatible with Mac and PC, it works on the Google Chromebook too. It has no independent power supply, but depends on getting it from the computer it is connected to.

1TB is more than sufficient for almost anybody - you could easily put hundreds of HD films on here with no problem at all.

If you use your mobile a lot, I'd consider getting a drive with Wifi functionality, as you'll be able to transfer and watch via your phone, and it makes the process a lot simpler.

Style Name: 2TBColour Name: Silver Verified Purchase
Failed within 6 months, I have lost nearly everything. My mac has a small SSD and I used this to store my family photos and videos, ALL gone, the drive isn't detected. My 8 year old seagate FreeAgent go 500gb works flawlessly, unfortunately this was used only for playing movies via my TV and doesn't have important data, like the photos and videos I had of my little brother who died when he was 15 from Muscular Dystrophy. I have nothing to remember him by.

Th drive was used lightly and always in a case and never left the house, it was working fine then just stopped. All seagate instructions to attempt to rectify it are useless. This is a faulty product by design...

PLEASE READ THE OTHER 1 STAR REVIEWS, DO NOT RELY ON THIS DRIVE AS YOUR ONLY BACKUP!!!

UPDATE: I took this drive apart carefully and took the Samsung branded HDD out, then connected it to my mac and pc using a USB 3.0 TO SATA adapter like this one and voila, it works flawlessly. The cheaply made USB controller in the casing is the part that fails easily. It seems Seagate want us thinking that we have lost our data so we pay for their £450 data recovery service. As soon as you connect via the sata to usb interface it works flawlessly like it did before the planned obsolescence, though you'll need to buy another enclosure, but at least you'll be able to get access to your data.
