      An excellent external drive

      This drive comes with both USB 3.0 type A and USB type C cables in the box. It has a premium metal finish all around and is very quite. The drive is very fast f This drive comes with both USB 3.0 type A and USB type C cables in the box. It has a premium metal finish all around and is very quite. The drive is very fast for a HDD and very small. Its smaller than my iPhone 6s Plus for excellent portability. It can be powered off USB without any issues. The drive is ready for Macs right out of the box and has an extremely attractive icon that can be displayed on your desktop or inside Finder. This drive is also easily partitioned for use with TimeMachine for easy backups. It's all around an excellent drive and I think you would be very satisfied.

      Not so good

      Had one of these for about 9 months. Been all very good accept for one problem...seems to hang regularly (about once a week on average) when communicating with Had one of these for about 9 months. Been all very good accept for one problem...seems to hang regularly (about once a week on average) when communicating with my big Mac using the USB cable. Only solution is to turn it off and restart. Mac can't even force it to stop. This is the only problem we have encountered otherwise would agree with all the other reviews. But it is very annoying and we are purchasing a Thunderbolt capable drive to replace it and hopefully eliminate this problem.
