5 out of 5 eggssteps to Windows

Pros: LOW cost & USB 3.0

Cons: no blinking light when doing disk access - if that's important..... (none)

Other Thoughts: You know day one this is set up for Apple. go to Seagate & get crossplatform ALSO GET seatools for Windows. after crossplatform, use seatools to wipe the drive and convert to MBR. Now crossplatform isn't needed & it will connect to any XP, 7 or 8 machine fine - GL & 73

5 out of 5 eggsSeagate Art Deco Gatsby USB 3.0 Thin and Sleek

Pros: Seagate. 2 Year Warranty. USB 3.0. Elegant. Cool Temps checked by Speed Fan on 440 GB Transfer to check speeds and temp. The Looks. The Move. It is A Song, A Rhapsody. Price is knockout and onsale. First sold to as Mac Time Machine or some other such nonsense name. Where is Michael J Fox when you need him. Download file from from Seagate. Boom 40 seconds later it is Partitioned, Formatted, SMART. Auto Registration. See Cons on this one. Speeds are not accurate as I am running two usb hubds and 14 TB of external drives so it ended up in USB 2.0 but it did range from 70 o 160 mbs in USB 2.0 and like I wrote temps did not go over 38C. It was cooler than my SSD 180 GB Intel. WOW!.

Cons: I installed two 3GB Barracudas external and 2 2.5 inch NewEgg Slims (from the Pulp Fiction Movie) and tried to 1) set them up. One at a time would not automatically go one to one to one to one. I did get the two Slims to auto registration one plugged in and the other unplugged and reboot. Switch plug and unplug. The Barracudas swam to the bottom like Seagate Bottom Feeders but I blame the dual external with fan that does not support SMART or stupid.

Other Thoughts: Great release point at Christmas but I do not see Seagate over selling this model as the Box reads for the Mac and PC users cringe as the old Chirstmas Past ghosts of Apple Talk and other nightmare Mac stories. Whatever makes anyone happy but with my new MS Tablet 2 and the Seagate drive writing personal buy and sell offers the eyes are on technology then the price quote. IT IS A CLOSER!

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Choise for Time Machine

Pros: Small
Quiet
Works with Apple Time Machine INSTANTLY

Cons: Not sure why someone would buy this for a PC BUT
-Requires driver download for PC use
-Requires a reformat for PC use
-Expensive - you can find 1TB portable drives for the same price - but then you would have to format those for your MAC before first use - so...

Other Thoughts: If you read the blurb, this small drive is meant to be used for a mac - and it just works. I wrote the review to stress that this equipment works exactly as advertised, with no hassle and no fuss, compared to two other reviews that seem to be upset because they want to use the device for something it is not configured, and then complain about it.,

3 out of 5 eggsWindows support

Pros: I mostly use on Mac so not the a huge issue but I was interested in this because it could be used with a PC with an HFS driver or so it stated

Cons: Since I couldn't easily find the location of the Windows driver and another review says Windows support is to format...

http://www.seagate.com/support/downloads/item/backup-plus-mac-software-master/

Attach drive, install driver, reboot system. Kind of sloppy, I'm guessing they want to make sure their product is attached before the driver is installed but my plan was for quick copying of things that are a little too large for a flash drive., or at least the 32 GB I carry around with me

Other Thoughts: Will update once I test the driver

3 out of 5 eggsWindows users beware

Pros: Sleek & Fast

Cons: Not Windows Compatible as is

Other Thoughts: If you purchase this and it says for MAC, Windows Cannot read it, you will need to download the Seagate disk wizard and reformat it to NTSF
