Summary: So I have had this for exactly 28 months running it on my iMac 24/7 to update a few times a day via Time Machine. Over the course of using it there were periods of time were the iMac couldn't mount it to the computer. No big deal...

Summary: in the right hands! I am struggling getting it to work as a secondary drive for my Mac Book. I plan to take it to the Apple store soon for some help and will come back and up-date this review.
