5 out of 5 eggs Excellent Choise for Time Machine 11/27/2013

This review is from: Seagate 500GB 2.5" USB 3.0 Slim External Hard Drive Model STCF500801

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.,
