Summary: This is made by one of those incredible small companies that are dead-focused on making a great product and providing incredible customer service. We had a 1TB drive from them for a number of years, and it was time to upgrade. Didn't even bother looking at other manufacturers due to the experience with ioSafe. Loved the pleasant little upgrades, the way the packaging, setup, and registration is just even better.
Pros: Easy setup, quiet, fast, PC/Mac, comes with proper length cables, great company behind it.
Cons: Only a single mounting hole to bolt it down. If they offered an additional ~$25 mounting kit that came with 2 security bolts, I'd totally buy that.
Summary: The unit arrived in good condition. It seems to be well-built and capable of meeting the manufacturer's claims. The unit powered up, mounted correctly, and was recognized by the computer over the local network. In summation, it seems to be working as advertised. The battleship gray color is unattractive, but most people won't care.
Summary: Just received the drive - super packaging of the drive within the box, gives a very good first impression that these people are serious about data protection. The drive is super heavy and sturdy - again, very reassuring in light of why I bought this drive. Backing up first computer now, a Mac, using TimeMachine. Going very fast so far, impressed!
Summary: I own two of these connected to an iMac and a Mac Mini both running Yosemite 10.10.1. One has been up an running 6 months the other about 6 weeks. When they arrived I had to use Disc Utility to format them for Mac - easy peasy. They seem well made and are very quiet since they do not have fans. The USB 3.0 connector is fast as you would expect. Fortunately, I have not had a fire nor a flood so I cannot testify to the ability to withstand fire and/or water.
Summary: Excellent product I purchased this to replace my sea gate and western digital drives that are always failing. I am impressed with the quality and the outstanding support. I will replace all my drives with this product.
got a great deal. Don't know how fireproof or waterproof it ...

Summary: Bought this on Costco, got a great deal. Don't know how fireproof or waterproof it is (haven't really tested it) but if it is anything it is QUIET. Also HEAVY. It took me awhile to even determine it was on, but once plugged in it does everything you could ask it to (store files). About the size of a toaster but with the mass of a gold brick.
