    I have the 2TB version of that My Passport, it has served me well so far, no issues.

    I also have a 500GB My Passport Ultra, partitioned into two, 250GB for Time Machine, 250GB exFAT partition for my MBA and Windows PC, no problems with that either.

    I can't speak for the Seagate drive but either will be fine, go with whatever you like the most.

    IMO, HDD are commodity items. Buy from an outfit where if you have to return no problem, and more GB per dollar. That's it. USB3 would be the only thing I want.
