Summary: The fact that it's mac compatible makes it very easy to transfer between mac and windows.
Pros: -This is very durable, even after a couple drops on hard floor, it has surprisingly still functioned great. -The firewire ports makes data transfer very very fast and convenient, great for moving and storing hundreds of GB's at once if that's what you need.
Cons: Price may be costly, but it has been worth it thus far for me..
Summary: I'm very happy with this device which I use to do my Time Machine backups on my MacBook Pro. Just plug it in and walk away, when you come back, your computer is backed up and if you use a computer a lot and you aren't backing up regularly, you're making a mistake.
Summary: I did quite a bit of research here on Amazon and other places before deciding on this particular model as my primary backup to my desktop iMac. I can honestly say, this little unit is amazing.
