  • Summary: I bought this via Costco Online in March 2015. It arrived quickly and was well packed. It is a heavy unit which seems to be well built and durable. Even though it is a big hunk of metal on your desk, I actually like the design on the front of the unit.
  • Pros: heavy duty / well built
  • Cons: heavy (but then again it is heavy duty!)

Excellent First Impressions

TB591, Costco
4 April 2015
  • Summary: I just received my G3 3TB drive. The price was great at Costco and it arrived in just a few days. It seem well constructed and must be this heavy due to the fire protection. So far I have backed-up 2 MacBook Pros and my 64K photo collection to the drive.
  • Pros: delivered quickly great price well constructed holds a lot of data
  • Cons: heavy not very portable
