Slim Portable Drive for Mac

Seagate 500GB Backup Plus drive is very Mac-like in its form factor, though a little larger than the comparable (but decidedly PC-like) Buffalo Mini-station.

 
Slim Portable Drive for Mac

Here is the adapter disconnected from the drive portion. The drive portion is a bare drive and plastic case. No circuit board. The exposed connector is the drive's interface. The adapter is a handy, stand-alone SATA-to-USB adapter.

2 out of 5 eggsBuyer Beware!!

Pros: Very fast transfer rates, one cable

Cons: Nearly impossible to find a drive for the adapter.

Other Thoughts: I wish I had known Seagate was going to bail on this product line. I would never have bought it! It seems like a great idea, drives that can connect via usb or Thunderbolt, at least it did when there were drives available.

1 out of 5 eggsToo bad, It's going back !!!

Pros: Could not get it to stay connected for more than 3 sec. to see any !!!!

Cons: It does NOT stay connected for more than 3 sec. with thunderbolt connection, it keeps going off-line and I get the "Disk Not Ejected Properly" error on a random basis.

Other Thoughts: Useless drive on the Mac with Thunderbolt connection, it keeps getting ejected randomly every few seconds. I wish I had checked the reviews online before ordering the drive as there are a LOT of complains about this particular drive on the Mac with Thunderbolt and supposedly Seagate has refused the address the issue.
