Summary: I bought this drive to replace an aging external drive - this replacement is fantastic. Read/Write speeds are very good using USB 2 - I can't comment on USB3 speeds as the device is being used on the mac and older windows PC's (without USB 3).
Summary: This is a nice small portable drive. I like it because it has 1.5GB and is a great size to carry a large quantity of documents. It fits easily in a pocket, and there is no need for a seperate power supply, as it is powered via the USB itself.
Summary: I purchased this product to use with my MacBook Air. It is very sleek and matches my Macbook perfectly, it was very easy to set up and works seamlessly with the time machine on my Mac. I am very pleased with everything and would thoroughly recommend it to others.
Summary: I have got it for Mac time machine back up. I was running low on space with 1tb for 1tb iMac so decided to try 1,5tb back up drive. I love this product. It is connected via USB 2, what's cool about it- no power is required as it is powered from iMac. Very easy, and so far reliable.
Summary: Beautifully made (brushed silver case), compact (12 cm x 8cm x very thin), it looks like it was designed specifically for my iMac, and neither gets in the way nor looks odd connected all the time. Set up was a little confusing (probably me), but now runs perfectly with Time Machine.
Summary: Bought this for my daughter's Mac Air. Works out of the box as expected, lightning quick. Beauty and elegance for those who don't mind spending a few bob extra for something that matches the Apple product line. Small, very very light.
