Trouble free installation, nicely made, I recommend it!

Summary: Works as advertised. I was prepared for the usual start up nuisance problems, but this product was pretty much "plug and go" ... I recommend it, and am using it with a late model Macintosh computer to replace a previous back up drive which died after several years of use.
Summary: I Mac crashed after installing Lion. Bummer. $800 later, with a new disc drive I plugged this in, moved my tax files to my new MINI Mac which is running on Yosemite. Several hours later, taxes done; this device allows me to move between the two Macs moving my data and Backing up.
Summary: my very positive experience with other Toshiba products prompted my purchase. The literature said this model and memory was Mac compatible and also USB 2.0 as well as 3.0. We have several Mac OS 10.10 laptops, with a couple having legacy 2.0 portals. This product is not compatible with 2.0 Mac USB.
Summary: I've had this device for almost 3 weeks. Although the hard drive seems to work just fine, one of the reasons I made this purchase was for the 10 free gigs of lifetime cloud storage. That addition is offered through Pogoplug, so you have to deal with them to set up the storage.
