Does the job,
This review is from: Seagate STBC3000200 3TB GoFlex Desk for Mac FireWire800/USB 2.0 3.5 inch External Hard Drive (Personal Computers)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is the first external Hard drive I've had so I haven't much to compare it to but it seems to be doing everything I've asked of it so far. I'm using it on a Windows 7 system and formatted it to NTFS, and I've had no problems with it at all.
Backing up does seem to be a bit slower than to my internal hard drive but that's to be expected. However it is surprisingly fast at transferring large files and folders. Transferring a 6GB video file took only about a minute. Folders with lots of small files slowed down the transfer speed considerably but still very fast compared to most USB devices.
Overall I'm happy with this hard drive, transferring to and from it is fast and easy and you'd barely know it was an external hard drive at all most of the time.
