Excerpt: Apparently this thing is newer than my previous Startech drive dock, it would only let me format it 800ish GBs. After I got a new StarTech drive dock I was able to format it to the full 3TB. Just an FYI if you are using an external enclosure or dock. The drive itself has performed great so far. Transfers fast and keeps cool.
Excerpt: I like have a large drive like this for backing up large video projects. This drive works great but I was surprised to see it not work properly with my exernal SATA usb reader. The only way I could get it to work properly was to insert it into my Mac Pro tower.
