Excerpt: It even got its own power source through USB connection. So a word of advice, you should always eject it properly from your device to avoid damage of both. On the other hand, the 2-year service warranty had me thinking that this might not be that sturdy. I just hope this brand would last more than just 2 years, since it only cost me Php3,500 for a 500GB portable hard drive. However, I really like its color and it so slim and light.
Summary: I had used this product with my windows PC and was very satisfied. When I switched to a MAC computer I found that the windows product did not work with an apple computer. So I purchased another one for MAC only. It works very well like a high capacity flash drive, but it does not come with back up software. Customer service rep of Apple confirmed this deficiency of the drive and advised me to use the Time Machine utitility in my Mac Computer itself for back up.
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Setup, Easy to use, High Capacity, Portable
Summary: I needed this product as I am going away to school abroad and did not want to risk losing my data in a foreign land. It was very easy to install and look forward to a great working relationship ahead!
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Setup, Easy to use, High Capacity, Portable, Quiet
Summary: This product was extremely easy to use with Time Machine to back up my MacBook Pro (OSX 10.6.3). I have not had to restore info to my computer yet, so I cannot vouch for that part of the process. I backed up 80G initially, which took about an hour or less- I can't remember. The drive ships with two USB cables, one short for direct connection to your computer. I assume the longer one is used for connection of the dock (not included) to your computer.
Pros: Attractive Design, Compact, Easy To Setup, Easy to use, High Capacity, Quiet
Summary: When I ordered this drive, there was no mention at all that it was Windows only. There was not so much as one word on any of the printed material or in the PDF manual about setting this drive up for use on a Mac. I had to go into the disk utility and Erase (re-format) the drive to make it usable, which, had it failed, may have made it un-returnable... The format succeeded an the drive has worked fine ever since.
Pros: Attractive Design, Compact, High Capacity, Quiet
