Summary: Product came in a timely manner, and is functioning well. Backup takes about 5 minutes, where the Seagate model we had for 2 years was taking about 20-30 minutes! Will probably have this one for a while with the 7-year warrantee.
Summary: If you have an issue with it being partitioned (as I did), this can be solved easily. Verbatim in fact has a utility that is called "Verbatim Mode Change Tool". Just do a search and get this utility which will change the drive into any amount of partitions and/or file system you wish to change to.
Pros: Compact enough to be portable, has on/off switch which is a very nice feature that most do not have. Compatible with any OS.
