I have found Seagate Backup Plus Ultra Slim 1TB but there are enough users reported about the bad experience. After some weeks it doesnt work anymore.

Max 10 mm cause I want it to use this external HDD with my notebook and transport it together in the same bag.

  • Any USB preference? 2.0,3.0,3.1... what type of connector? Type C? Jan 31 '17 at 17:02
  • @BigElittles Thunderbolt 2 and USB 3. Its MacBook Pro 13, 2015. I would prefer 3.0.

Seagate Backup Plus Slim 1TB Portable External Hard Drive for Mac USB 3.0 Seems to meet your requirements. Its slim, coming in at 9.6mm tall.

I tried finding an SSD solution for you, but nothing would fit in that form factor. If your willing to settle on 512GB, I would recommend the AngleBird SSD2go, it is smaller... and substantially faster than any HDD.

The Seagate drive is a USB 3.0, and the Anglefire is USB 3.1 Gen2 10Gbit/s.
These are my suggestions, I hope they help.

  • I have read a lot of negative reports from the users of Seagate Backup Plus Ultra Slim. Most of users find it good but some 5-10% reports problems like bad sectors or that it cannot be used anymore after only a short time.

  • As for today - the Amazon link you have given has 124 customer reviews and more than 20% of it are negative.

  • Most harddrives are that way, some people buy them for the wrong reason. I'll edit my post with a western digital alternative. I've had great luck with seagate, and their data recovery services sold through amazon ($10) is really easy to use. Jan 31 '17 at 18:24
  • What do you mean with "wrong reasons"?
