    I'm looking for a stable fast external hard drive. This Wester Digital is more than 4 stars. It looks like it's tailored for macs and has the basic features I was looking for. Anyone who has been using external hard drives for a while have any other drives they would recommend more?

    I have that Seagate hard drive but in the USB 3.0 version. Just got it this past week and opened it up today...it's pretty fast. The only difference between the Mac and non-Mac versions is the formatting that it's shipped with....oh and the prices. The Mac versions always seem to be pricier for some reason. Just get a USB 3.0 version and reformat it using disk utility and you'll be good to go.

    I had a Toshiba 3.0 and my 2012 MBP was not powerful enough to power it. I picked up a WD 3.0 and it works fine.

    2 TB Barracuda in a Thermaltake 5X STATA III case.
    Works great.
