5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Pros: This drive is huge, works just how you would expect it to. USB hard drive detected automatically by WindowsXP. Recommend for MAC, works fine with Windows, even has windows instructions. Partitioned it to have a Linux OS on there so i can boot from USB, works awesome.

Cons: Power brick is huge, nice reach on the cord however. No real cons.

Pros: Excellent throughput via FW800, and as an owner of the prior Bigger Disk Extreme series drives, I appreciate the USB interface, and smaller footprint.

Cons: I don't like the power brick.
