Summary: I used this storage drive for school and it was wonderful. It was able to transfer large files without too much wait time. I liked it's FireWire and usb capabilities. The case is nice, but didn't stay together well, but just wrapping a rubber band around it was an easy fix.
Summary: I bought this drive to replace a LaCie external drive that was causing me no end of problems. I use it with an iMac and OS X Yosemite as an external backup drive. It does what it is supposed to do, and so far I have not had any problems with it.
