Excerpt: I was initially very happy with this drive as a repository for photos and other precious cargo. However, about six months into owning it, it began to remove itself from my drive list without actually dismounting; I should've taken this as a Mayday of impending failure, but I had confidence in this...
Excerpt: I'm using the drive for my Time Machine backup. Set-up took less than 5 minutes. Works like a charm and is very quiet (which I can't say the same for my LaCie drives). Definitely would recommend, especially at the price point.
Pros: Attractive Design, Compact, Easy To Set Up, Easy to use, Portable, Quiet
Excerpt: Back up Mac with time machine. Large capacity for many high res photos. In my experience these external hard drives always work for a few years then some of them just stop working. I have been told data can be retrieved for a high price so I back up to cloud external and disks.
Excerpt: Works perfect, right out of the box. Already formatted for Mac, just plug and play. The 3.0 usb works with my 2.0 MacBook Pro now, but at the 2.0 speed. Works even faster with another 3.0 device.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy to use, High Capacity, Quiet
