      Mine Has Been Working Flawlessly For Years

      I don't doubt the unfortunate experience of the other reviewer here at all. Just for the record, though, I've had mine for God knows how many years - at least f I don't doubt the unfortunate experience of the other reviewer here at all. Just for the record, though, I've had mine for God knows how many years - at least five; whenever they first hit the market - and it's been working flawlessly all this time.

      Best Time Machine Backup Drive for 2016 MacBook Pro

      This is a really fast and reliable drive. The rugged design is great, but only is protective when the drive is powered off...because of the moving parts inside. This is a really fast and reliable drive. The rugged design is great, but only is protective when the drive is powered off...because of the moving parts inside. My 100gb backup only took 1 hour and further backups seem to be 10 mins. Overall a great drive.

      Great, but eventually fail

      I've had 3 Ruggeds over the last 5 years for backing up my mac with time machine, first the firewire version then the thunderbolt type. They look great and are I've had 3 Ruggeds over the last 5 years for backing up my mac with time machine, first the firewire version then the thunderbolt type. They look great and are nice to have around. They have all three eventually failed after 2-3 years of constant use. I've come to accept that's the end of their working life and after that they are paperweights. I will probably buy again.
