      Best external hard drive ever

      I have owned lots of external hard drives over the years from no names which fail after a year to high WD drives. The ioSafe drives have always been my favorite I have owned lots of external hard drives over the years from no names which fail after a year to high WD drives. The ioSafe drives have always been my favorite as far as reliability goes and I have used their NAS server for my business for years. When the G3 came out, I was excited and instantly bought one for home use. My family and I have our entire DVD collection uploaded to iTunes and stream movies to 3 different Apple TV units in the house. With other drives such as WD, there was always a lag in streaming but the ioSafe G3 is very fast and has dramatically improved the refresh rate for all movies. The drive is so good that I bought a second one to use with Time Machine and now have 6 total TB of storage hooked up to the family iMac. I will not buy another brand of external hard drive.

      AWESOME BACK-UP DRIVE !

      Just received my new ioSafe 3TB Back-up drive. Shipping was fast, well-packaged. Beautiful right out of the box. Easy to set up and get running. Super EASY! Just received my new ioSafe 3TB Back-up drive. Shipping was fast, well-packaged. Beautiful right out of the box. Easy to set up and get running. Super EASY! So happy to know that I will not loose any of my data ever again. Just went through a complete loss of last 6 yrs of my life with a hard-drive crash on my old MAC. This drive should be "Awesome". Sure looks "Cool" sitting next to my new i-Mac 27"! Couldn't believe how fast this new drive backed-up my entire computer, literally done in a few minutes. Can't say enough good stuff about this drive. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!! Thanks, KEVIN. :-)
