Review of the Seagate Backup Plus 3 TB Thunderbolt Desktop External Hard Drive for Mac STCB3000400

Buy it on Amazon (affiliate link) – http://goo.gl/FdpJk

My review of the Seagate Thunderbolt 3 TB hard disk. This is a high end, high capacity, and relatively high speed external hard drive for Macs. The most interesting feature is that the hard disk can be removed and swapped out with other SATA drives, including an SSD!

    I am trying to understand how this differs from the GoFlex Drive from Seagate with Thunderbolt.

    Great stuff for Mac users!  Thanks again.  As Lon said, Mac users cannot really add SATA ports, so Thunderbolt is our saving grace for now.  BTW, they also sell the docks by themselves (STAE129 for the desktop and STAE128 for the portable) in case you don't want the HD & TB cable and save a few bucks.

    The 4TB version is also compatible with MAC OS, because in the official Seagate webpage when I choose the Tunderbolt opcion, the 4TB apears in grey and its not available.
    This external drive can be formatted in ExFAT (compatible with Mac an Windows7/8) and use the Thunderbolt cable without any problem.
    PS: Sorry for my English 🙁
    Thanks for your video..

    Thunderbolt actually isn't a lot like USB, but more like firewire or external SCSI or eSATA. This is because it is basically hostless. In other words the communication between devices does not require a lot of CPU overhead like USB does. Bus communication does not have to be hand-held by a software process all of the time which makes it faster and more efficient. ( also more expensive because you need more hardware to manage it )
