Summary: Before I bought this external hard drive I did some research and this one was a bit more expensive but it's specifically for Mac, and it looks protected, so I went for it. The problem was not in the product but the 3rd party who actually sells it to you. I got a very speedy estimated arrival date and without any notice it didn't show on that day or for some time..
Summary: When researching an external hard drive for back up purposes for basic media (photos, music, documents, etc), I found some of the information out there to be really confusing for a non-technical person. I needed a back up drive that did not require any configuring or modification so if you have basic computer skills, this is the drive for you. Pros: Super easy to use! You just plug it in to your computer using the USB port and voila, you can start backing up items.
Summary: bought the 1TB Mac edition portable drive from craigslist, guy said it was new but the box was open, anyway the drive is quiet and there is no overheating of any kind; no freezing or errors when transferring files; black finishing is kind of glossy and all fingermarks are visible no complaints about the drive so far keep in mind that any drive can fail at any time though
