Size: 2TBColor: Black Verified Purchase
Hard to go wrong here. If you are using this as an external drive, this product has 2TB in very small space and is USB powered. The drive itself only takes 0.7-2.3W to operate! On Mac OSX 10.9.2 running the included Paragon NTFS driver, I was able to see write rates in 8-10 MB/sec with USB 2.0. On a Windows 7 Machine I averaged 18 MB/Sec; 14 MB/sec running the latest 8.1 update.

I pulled the drives from two of these units (instructions below - photos to be added soon) for use in my laptop. This product is the only way I know of to obtain the 9.5mm tall, 2.5-in 2T Samsung Spinpoint M9T drive(s). Note: the 2TB version has 1 drive, the 4TB has 2 drives. After installing them in my laptop (has 3 internal HDD bays with SATA connections, 1st bay has OS, apps, etc. on 500GB SSD), I tested data txfr speeds. I moved 1.5 TB of data from one drive to another with average speeds of 194 MB/Sec in Windows 8.1. Laptop now has 4.5 TB of hard drive capacity.

Have also successfully installed one in a PS4! Next project will be to install one in a Macbook Pro. Great way to get a lot of internal storage space for little money (Purchased early April 2014 for $103.99 directly from Amazon with 2-day Prime shipping).

Removal Instructions (WARNING -THIS WILL VOID YOUR WARRANTY - BUYER BEWARE):
1. Obtain small, flat-bladed screw driver and gently insert between the aluminum top and the plastic bottom.
2. Rotate screwdriver slightly to pry the top off. At this point slide the screwdriver around the perimeter and the top will come off.
3. Once the top is off, you will see the top of the internal drive. Carefully remove from the plastic lower without prying or subjecting the drive to significant shock. It is easiest to remove by lifting the side opposite the USB connector.

Size: 500GBColor: Silver
How it looks: The silver version of this drive has a brushed aluminum front with rough etched Seagate logo, rest of the drive case is plastic. It is the same silver as a macbook but since it is brushed instead of powder coated it catches a lot more light. Not unattractive. Thankfully the LED light is white and pulses rather than WD's annoying blue led flicker, the thin white light goes off when not used for awhile.

Sizing: Compared to an iPhone 5 the Seagate Slim USB3 500GB drive is a little bit thicker (~2-3mm), shorter length wise (~1cm) and wider width wise (~2cm).

Speed: This drive uses a standard blue USB 3 cable (included) that is backwards compatible to USB2 meaning that you can plug it into any Mac or PC. Thunderbolt drives are the fastest, but this drive isn't compatible with Seagate's Thunderbolt adapter. USB 3 is fast, but if you connect it to a Mac that doesn't have USB 3 support it will run at the very slow USB 2 speed (ie long file copy times). Unlike PCs which use a blue USB port to indicate USB 3 compatibility a Mac doesn't easily tell you if it is USB 3 or USB 2. You'll have to look up your model specs by going to the Apple icon, choosing about this Mac, more info and then googling your model number for details (surprising this isn't made easier, but any Mac model made earlier than mid 2012 probably doesn't have USB 3 support).

It shows up in the Mac finder as "Seagate Slim Drive" with an Orange USB icon drive. It contains a Mac and Windows installer and 400mb of videos (why they couldn't ship a single higher quality MPEG4 with multiple audio tracks is beyond me). The list of files on the drive are at the bottom of this review.

Drive is formatted NTFS and has no support for SMART drive sensors or hardware encryption.

Size: 500GBColor: Black Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
இ Fuzzy Wuzzy's Summary:
ѾѾѾѾѾ Highly recommended with warm fuzzies!

փ Positives:

փ This hard drive is indeed very slim, with its 9.5mm thickness being comparable to an internal laptop hard drive.
փ The read/write transfer speeds are pretty fast for a 5400-RPM hard drive (but performance will feel slower if you are accustomed to using 7200-RPM drives).
փ By installing a Windows or Mac driver, you can use either the Windows or Mac version of this drive on both Windows and Mac computers, which is great for transferring files in between both platforms.
փ This drive comes in 500-GB, 1-TB, 2-TB, and 4-TB capacities with different color options for the top metal panel.

ჯ Negatives:

ჯ While the Seagate Dashboard software that is pre-loaded on the hard drive includes very useful and flexible backup software, the other two parts of the software to share files to social media sites and save files from social media sites are limited in their usefulness and flexibility.
ჯ If you are relying on the Seagate Dashboard software to backup all of your user files, such as documents and emails, Dashboard will not backup hidden files, so you need to unhide all folders and files in your C:\Users\ folder by unchecking the folders' or files' "Hidden" property attribute.

With a thickness of 9.5mm for the 500-GB drive, this very portable little drive is only slightly thicker than an iPhone or pencil, and its thickness is comparable to many internal laptop/notebook drives. But while 9.5mm-thick internal laptop drives do not have an external case covering them, this drive is housed inside an attractive anodized aluminum metal case, with a plastic bottom base, that gives it a solidly rigid feel to the drive.
