    Yes, it's been Time Machine compatible for me. I'm using it to service Time Machine for two different Macs over the network through an Airport Extreme connection. It works flawlessly with a direct connection but I noted in my review that it initially had sleep issues that led to the discovery that it isn't officially supported for use with an Airport. However, it now seems to be working fine through the Airport connection, too. I went through three or four rounds of rebooting it and such over as many weeks; at some point, the right combination of reinstalling it on the Airport and rebooting apparently cured the sleep issue. I might add it's quiet, too.
