3 out of 5 eggsBe Careful

Pros: Worked fine for a year

Cons: No longer works with latest Lion Update, Still works under Windows

Other Thoughts: I bought this drive specifically to work under MAc OS and Windows. It has worked flawlessly via Firewire until recently. Comes with a d driver for Windows and works native with Mac OS out of the box. Currently, it won't mount under MAc OS.. Appears to be an issue with the last Lion Update. No response from Seagate as of yet.
