Summary: Just bought this today to use as dockable storage. I have a 3 TB HDD Toshiba around a 7 months ago when I built the computer & it been reliable. This 2 TB unit is a replacement a 2 TB Seagate that didn't work right from day one. I hope that the Toshiba 2 TB works as well as the 3 TB drive does. I also have a 2 TB Toshiba external HDD that is still working that I bought a year and a half ago. Good performance from both.
Summary: I bought this one to centralize my backups from both my computer (via TimeMachine) and my LaCie scratch disk (2x500GB RAID0). Formatted quickly and effortlessly with Disk Utility. It works flawlessly for now. Limited only by the cable connection (FW800). really quiet too, I had to touch it to know it spun. Great buy!
