Small, neat, silent and 1 TB of storage, I'm really happy
on 18 September 2017
I had to replace my old Seagate hard drive when the cat knocked it onto a stone floor and it started making beeping noises and never recovered (the drive, not the cat!). I'm delighted with this new one. It is really neat and compact, in fact I thought the wrong thing had been delivered when I opened it because it was so small. My old drive was large and heavy and had to be upright on the desk (and therefore easy to knock over for a lively cat). This is small, silent, holds 1 TB and takes its power from the computer and therefore doesn't need a separate supply, another big bonus and one less cable and plug needed on my desk. I plugged it in, the iMac recognised it straight away and started to back up and the whole thing was complete in 10 minutes. Even Clive the cat would find it difficult to knock this one on the floor because it simply lies flat right by the keyboard. I've shown the old on the left and new on the right in the photo.
