Summary: Well, I guess it might go down tomorrow, BUT I have had this in operation since August 09, so about 14 months now. Despite reviews of units dying quickly I purchased it on a computer consultant's personal advice. Couldn't be happier with the product.
Summary: Super drive. 3yrs now... not even a single issue. Kept 'on' all the time (3 yrs) attached to multiple things I used it with SAN router, then used it with with PC then used it with MAC pro never had any issue with what so ever.
