4 out of 5 eggs Good drive...after an update 10/22/2013

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

Pros: Drive was Mac-formatted out-of-the-box, just plugged it in and it was ready for use. The drive for me is reasonably quiet (certainly quieter than other enclosures I've used). The enclosure finish is actually nice too, a little bit softer plastic than most, and the indicator lights on the front are not so bright as to light up the entire room.

Cons: I got some "drive unmounted" errors during a large file copy to the drive - these errors were mentioned in reviews on other web sites. I went to the Seagate site and downloaded a firmware update for the drive, and that update seems to have resolved the issue.

Other Thoughts: I haven't particularly checked the transfer speeds - I'm using this as a Time Machine backup drive and to store some media files, so quick access isn't super important for me. But for that usage, at least, it seems to be just fine. This is on a 2011 iMac, using USB 2.0 (the drive supports 3.0).
