    Save yourself the trouble

    • Written by from Lakewood

    Before buying this drive I read a ton of reviews. Like most products out there there were some good and some bad, however I did notice that there were either 4 or 5 star reviews (amazon, sweet water, applestore) or 1 star reviews, nothing really in between. I've had this drive plugged in for 24 hours, and I return to my computer after running errands and have a pop up notification on my computer saying that drive wasn't disconnected properly. I look at the drive, its off. Thats weird, try unplugging it and plugging it back in (because there is no power button) and nothing. Waste of money. Really upset.

    Broke after 2 months of light use

    • Written by from Gainesville

    I bought this drive to store some Windows programs to use on bootcamp, and I only used it a few times over the last month. Over the holidays, I used it for a few hours straight and the drive just stopped working. It now makes an audible clicking sound when plugged in, and does nothing else.

    The drive is poorly designed. It does look nice, but if you plan on actually using the drive as anything but an aesthetic paperweight, I would advise against spending your money on this.

    I will be RMA'ing the drive, but I am not sure if I will ever trust my data on this poorly engineered device.

    Terrible Product

    • Written by from GLENSIDE

    I've purchased 3 of these and all have broken in a 1-2 year time frame. And I've not transported them around, either. They've sat on my desk. I would recommend purchasing a LaCie instead.

    Very hot

    • Written by from NEW YORK

    I bought this as a replacement Time Machine drive because my GLYPH drive was too noisy. I've used G-DRIVE mini's before and really liked them. BUT I wish I had paid attention to the reviews that said this drive runs very hot. I don't really feel comfortable having a drive this hot as my Time Machine drive. And it never seems to cool down, not even when sitting there unused. The G-Drive mini's were never this warm. I'm not sure if I'll return it or not but I regret buying it (for Time Machine).
    I bought it because Thunderbolt was more convenient for me (my Macbook Pro has 2 thunderbolt connections but only one USB which I use for other things).

    Better Back it Up!!! NOT GOOD!!!!

    • Written by from Simi Valley

    Bought it in December, in March - IT JUST STOPPED WORKING. Took it apart (could care less about the warranty I wanted my information) and could not get the drive to work with any connection. Had backed it up three months before, but still it is only four months old. My next stop is a profession service taking it apart in a clean room and seeing what they can get. The internal drive was a no-name drive the first tech never heard of. DO NOT BUY THIS JUNK!!!!
