      terrible

      It won't unmount. Says some other program is using the drive, but it's just being a pain. I've tried several ways to get it to eject, but it stubbornly won't co It won't unmount. Says some other program is using the drive, but it's just being a pain. I've tried several ways to get it to eject, but it stubbornly won't comply. Other reviews and lists elsewhere indicate others having the same problem. I want to leave the office and go home with my laptop, but can't with this stupid useless brick attached! I'm returning it and getting something more reliable.

      Drive Failed

      Had to reformat when errors notified - lost all data - worked for a while then same again. Now drive not recognised. A (very expensive) waste of money.

      Overall good - but didnt last as long as I expected it would

      Nicely built drive and looks the part and reasonably fast data transfer. Unit kept being unmounted by MacOSX (come on Applefix this!! ) and I think this caused Nicely built drive and looks the part and reasonably fast data transfer. Unit kept being unmounted by MacOSX (come on Applefix this!! ) and I think this caused its eventual demise. It had been playing up for a couple of days and I managed to retrive some data off it, before it went to the silcion valley in the sky! - Lasted about 3 years or so, and was pretty much permanently on.

      Works Perfectly!

      I'm not a tech guy per say but setting this up was very easy and I couldn't be happier. Great looking, great quality, affordable, it just does what it needs to I'm not a tech guy per say but setting this up was very easy and I couldn't be happier. Great looking, great quality, affordable, it just does what it needs to in the background and I have tons of storage space. I have a mid 2010 device, was having problems with the Sierra operating system. Bought this hard drive, backed up, refreshed and, life is wonderful again. Backing up the first time took like 30 hrs so be very patient, that's normal from what I read. The end result is system functionality, tons of memory, regular back-ups, exactly what I was looking for.
