4 out of 5 eggs Needs Firmware Update 10/23/2013

This review is from: Seagate 3TB 3.5 USB 3.0 Desktop Drive Backup Plus for Mac & PC Model STCB3000901

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Needs firmware update

Other Thoughts: I plugged this into my Mac and started Time Machine, but the drive kept disconnecting. I came here to write a scathing review, but I found the review by Acrobat who had the same problem and fixed with the firmware update. Thank you, Acrobat. Still, the drive shipped unusable, so I dinged it one star.

I don't have a USB 3 Mac yet, fortunately it is backward compatible with USB 2. It's slow, but still very usable for backup. My primary backup drive is FW800, so two drives will have to fail before I even notice the speed of this one.
