Summary: This external drive worked perfectly out of the box. The Mac Book interface was fine and no worries. Use Fire-wire mostly, since I can have the other USB ports doing different things. The drive, however is very fragile.
Summary: I have been a fan of Seagate portable drives ever since I used one for the first time several years ago. They're fast, stylish, and built well. This one is no exception to those rules. Compared to my other Western Digital external hard drive, it is lightning fast at transferring files.
Summary: I also own the 320Gb version of this drive which is a much better choice. I got PC USB only version and formated it for Mac, that worked well. 500Gb version is also thicker. I sent mine back and will get second 320Gb USB drive instead.
Pros: comes with base and travel case if you need them.
Cons: Runs hot, Fire Wire 800 is only marginally faster than USB connection on this drive. Needs two USB ports to run off of USB. Bulkier than 320Gb version.
