Bought this drive to replace my older external drive. Got it for the same amount that an external drive enclosure and drive would have cost me. Seems to work fine. But it came with some Bloaware that tries to install as soon as you plug the drive in. First thing I did was delete and reparation it. Now it works the way it should. The bloatware is some kind of backup and recovery program the compresses your stuff and then locks it with a password that you need to uncompress it.

This particular model boasted that it was compatible with macs AND pc. To me that meant it could be used interchangeably between my work mac and my home pc; otherwise, why bother to include the "AND"? There's a model that does one or the other. But this one does NOT go back and forth. The dashboard installation (which was not that intuitive)allowed only one use. After setting up the .exe on my pc, I tried running the software for the dashboard on my mac (.dmg) and it wouldn't completely install. So, bottom line, it's not as fully functional as it's portrayed to be.

NOT Detected by 3 Mac Computers, DOA

Comments about Seagate Portable Slim 500GB USB 3.0 (Black):

Bought two of these last July as they were on sale, but kept them safely unopened until we needed the extra storage today. Plugged the first one in. It powered up and just started making noises, and didn't appear. Tried it on 2 other Mac computers. Nothing, but the same cycle of the light coming on and flashing and the same beeping whirring noise. Downloaded the Seagate Dashboard software they suggested, but that didn't detect it either. So, I tried connecting the second drive...showed up on the desktop...but we remain skeptical. Tried the USB cable on the dead one, still dead. After reading the reviews, who knows how long that one will last! Debating whether to attempt a complete hard drive backup on it this weekend, as it could be an even greater waste of time and money in the long run. We've always bought Western Digital, and despite having bad experiences with Maxtor, thought we'd try a Seagate. Not great. Really disappointed.

              Bought it for my friend because he already has one that is almost full and he wanted to get another one that was the same as he already has.
