    • Unfortunately some of the 1 star reviews were true

      I'm giving this drive 1 star because both that i ordered were DOA. When I manage to take them in to BestBuy I'll try exchanging hopefully and if they give me troubles too I will just give up lol. Now, if they had worked. I love the form factor, nice and small, short cable but I that's what you want with a little drive like this not something that's going to get all tangled every time you put it in or out of your pocket, purse, backpack, etc. I hope that I eventually get one to work.


    • Ignore The Other Reviews - Read This for MacBook

      Okay, first of all ... I hate reviews that only give you half the story. Read this review if you want the scoop on this drive: Beware, you have to be a little bit computer savvy if you want to use this drive. It is not plug and play - if you expect to plug it into your MacBook and simply follow the bouncing ball, then you will be disappointed/frustrated. Also, it doesn't come with a set of detailed instructions telling you how to back up your apple computer files. It only comes formatted for anything other than apple. So, what you have to do is google the following: 1. How to format seagate harddrive to macbook; then, 2. How to backup macbook files to seagate drive. Then, follow the bouncing ball when you find answers to these searches. You will know if you are successfully backing up your files if it takes about 17 - 20 minutes. Lastly, when you are done backing up the files, you have to properly eject the seagate drive, otherwise you will get an error message (if you just pull the wire out of your macbook). The procedure is a little involved, but ... hey, you are getting a 2TB drive for 80 bucks.
