Pros: Cool looking exterior with a blue/white finish.
Cons: -Not able to be detected on both mac and window
-Is unable to stay connected even with different cables and ports
-Drivers are unreliable
Overall Review: I'm not sure if I got a defective hard drive but this was such a huge disappointment. I bought multiple seagate drives before so I'm pretty familiar with setting them up and formatting them. This is the first time where I had a headache because it would not be detected by both my mac or windows computer during the initial setup.
I connected this to my Mac first. Saw no detection. I swapped out the cables and tried multiple ports and still got nothing. Then I tried on another mac following the same process and still nothing.
I then tried on my pc and saw that the hard drive was listed, but it could not stay detected. Then after trying a different port/cables, the drive became totally undetected.
I tried restarting my devices, switching ports and cabling, and even installed Seagate updated drivers to see if MacOS Big Sur isn't compatible. This is such a huge let down because I was relying on this for work. I waited a week and a half with delayed projects just to have it come and blue ball me.
This is my least favorite seagate product ever and I will stay away from One Touch models from now on.
