Excellent backup or media drive.

Summary: I have several of these and have never had any issues. I use them for "Backup Only" storage and keep them in dry, cool storage. I use one of them for a mini media server (gets used pretty hard) and have had no errors or downtime (of course this drive is backed up to... yes another Edge).
Summary: I use this drive to provide Time Machine backups for the 3 Macs in the house. Two of my Macs have USB2 ports, so these ports dominate the write speeds to the disk. Even though the TM backups took 20 or 30 min each, these were the first time backups which amounted to 60-90GB.
Pros: Silent, low power, reliable (so far). The small form factor and self-powered aspects are pluses as well.

Summary: Works great had a bit of a time figuring out how to use it bcz its not exactly plug and play.. and there's no accurate instructions that come with it, but after visiting a few mac forums i figured it out, and it works as expected
Summary: The most critical feature of any drive is reliability. A drive that isn't reliable is worthless. The drive itself might be OK, but the USB connector is ultra-ultra-cheap & started disconnecting for no reason, even though I haven't touched it since I installed it.
Summary: It was OK, and worked great for a good while, but had to be reformatted after about 9 months. It is nice to be able to carry data with you. However I wanted an emergency boot and backup for Mac. Although it worked well for awhile, downloading everything, reformatting and reloading was a pain.
Pros: I just wanted all to know I purchased three of these, re-formatted from MAC to NTFS and all three are working fine, no failures, odd noises, et cetera. . As I only had these for a week, I can not vouch for long term usage. . It was at a great price, $ 29.99 each. Heavy and seemingly well construc...
Cons: None, except I should have purchased more :-)
