  • 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...

Mac users and PC users see different folders

My2Cents, Amazon
4 March 2015
  • Summary: Easy to use. Small, fast and easy to store. One complaint is that PC and Mac users seems to end up seeing different folders. We had several incidents where our photographer (on a Mac) placed files in a folder that PC users was unable to see. It didn't seem to be a problem the other way around.

The good news: Now I have a portable drive that ...

  • Summary: I'd used a bunch of LaCie drives years ago as a corporate Mac admin and experienced high failure rates and awful customer service. I began building my own portable Firewire and USB drives using Hitachi Travelstar and Seagate Momentus raw drives and Wiebetech and NexStar enclosures.

Great drive, loose connection to Macbook

  • Excerpt: Overall I like this sturdy external drive with its neat orange design and the Thunderbolt cable can be tucked in. My only complaint is that the Thunderbolt cable can be accidentally pulled out of my Thunderbolt port in my Macbook when I move my Macbook a little.
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Compact, Easy To Set Up, Easy to use, High Capacity, Portable, Quiet

Good drive but not really rugged

Richard L., Newegg
27 September 2014
  • Summary: I gave this drive three eggs because it failed after less than 100 hours of actual usage. The actual age of the drive is three years but it has been handled with care and never subject to any condition that could be remotely considered rugged.
  • Pros: Bright orange rubber guard makes it easy to find. Small and easy to use.
  • Cons: USB cable is not up to par for a rugged device. Reliability is no better than most other drives that I have used. Drive failed when I needed it most causing lost productivity.

Thunderbolt cable nice but weird

Matt Uncapher, Amazon
21 July 2014
  • Summary: I kind of like the fact that it has the built in Thunderbolt cable. The implementation is a little weird. I'm glad they also have USB 3 connection as well.
