Excerpt: I have purchased 2 of these over the last year. I thought that I must have damaged the 1st one as it quit working almost immediately. Recently, I purchased another one only to have it quit the day I brought it home.
Summary: Definite recommend, you can't beat the price
Pros: I love how simplistic this device is, your mac will recognize it instantly and the read and write speeds are good for the price. You really notice no difference in quality in terms of clarity speed when you compare it to more expensive models. Great device.
Cons: Thin casing, device tends to move incrementally due to not enough weight (but who care's about that it works!)
