Other Thoughts: been using the drive for months now and its fast and snappy. works right out of the box in USB 3.0 how I plugged it in.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great!

Pros: Very quiet, super fast USB3, small size.

Cons: The only con I can give this backup drive is the case. As some other noted, it's a rectangular box with sharp edges. If the case edges were slightly rounded it would be more attractive (if you need an attractive drive), and less annoying to handle.

Other Thoughts: Change the case guys and it would be perfect!

5 out of 5 eggsHow to Fix Mac Settings

Pros: Inexpensive, small, separate power. Works OK with Mac IF you turn off "Put hard disks to sleep when possible"

Cons: Mac & Seagate "idle/sleep" don't get along smoothly in some configurations, resulting in the Mac losing sight of the disk.

Other Thoughts: I adjusted the Mac's Energy Saver settings and haven't had any more trouble with the Seagate vanishing. Backups are happening as expected and I sleep better at night.

3 out of 5 eggsNot so great for Mac / Time Machine

Pros: Inexpensive, small, separately powered

Cons: Mac OSX Time Machine backup software loses sight of the drive occasionally and says "Backup Failed." I've been rebooting when this occurs, but will check whether an unmount / disconnect / reconnect will fix it. Since I use encrypted filesystems, this makes me Very Nervous.

Other Thoughts: The case has very sharp edges -- it looks good, but doesn't have a good tactile feel (I disconnect it and lock it up every night). It also has a glossy finish that is terrible for fingerprints.

However, my main concern is that I have very low tolerance for any strangeness in my backup devices. This Seagate replaced a WD Elements external drive that had gotten full (and the WD replaced another one like it. If I could have gotten another WD, I would have.)

So far, the Seagate seems to be holding data, but it's not giving me the warm fuzzy feeling I'd like.
