This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus for Mac 2TB USB 3.0 Storage Model STDU2000100
Pros: This is an aesthetically beautiful device. Matches well with all Apple computers. But the beauty isn't just skin deep. The USB 3.0 in this is blazing fast compared to my 6-year-old USB 2.0 Seagate drive that I was using. A full backup (~200 GB) in only a couple hours. Plenty of space and bang for your buck.
Cons: Be wary of possible compatibility issues. The disk has a block size of 4096, which is not compatible with Windows 7. I had partitioned this so I could also back up my Boot Camp info, and Windows 7 refused to work with it. So I had to upgrade to Windows 8, which now works beautifully.
Other Thoughts: Don't be fooled by hard drive labeled "For Mac". Storage space is storage space, it just depends on how it's formatted. This just comes Mac-ready out of the box, so if you don't know how to format disks and don't want to worry about it, go for it. It's the same price and specs as the "For Windows" one.
