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.

      Great, but eventually fail

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.

      Big Mistake

      I had this product for less than a year. I used it occasionally. I think, it is good luck if your Rugged works for long time. I used it with care, and it failed I had this product for less than a year. I used it occasionally. I think, it is good luck if your Rugged works for long time. I used it with care, and it failed anyways. Seagate Data Recovery service—that is offered for free when you buy this product, took long (more than they had promised) to process my case and could not recover my lost data. It was a big mistake and waste of money, and what is worst, my valuable files got lost forever. I am giving this product one star because there is not option for zero.

I just plugged it in and it was compatible to start backing up my files. I love how there's the orange case around the drive to protect it from bumps and scratches.
