The drive is great! Tons of storage! Only negative is it makes some noticeable noise while it's being used. I have several external drives that are mostly silent. The drive is hooked up to my tv entertainment PC and is about 7 feet from my couch and the sound of it searching for files is clearly audible. For me though it's not a deal breaker
The Windows backup program that comes with my Windows 7 works better then the Seagate program, and the Seagate support page was useless to me in telling me the exact software they have for me to use with this External Hard Drive.
We've been struggling getting Time Machine to work with our external hard drive and we were advised to replace the external hard drive. This is spacious at 1 TB and comes with both the traditional USB 3.0 cable as well as with the Thunderbolt cable. It's small, good looking, doesn't require an external power source, and works like a dream.
