1 out of 5 eggsRun Away!

Pros: Good case...

Cons: Doesn't like staying around. Will appear on an OS X desktop and work fine, only to disappear 12 hours later. Getting it back requires power-down of all parties involved, and even that doesn't guarantee it's return. In other cases, it will slow the host CPU to a oozing, sluggish, grind.

Other Thoughts: Avoid this drive.

1 out of 5 eggsYikes! No fun.

Pros: It's small for the amount of space inside and Firewire B is zippy. Newegg's service on the return was excellent.

Cons: Plugged it onto a G5 and it worked right away. Started moving data onto it. Next day it became sluggish, then poof, it completely disappeared from the screen and became inaccessible even when tried on other computers. Two days later, hooked it up again and it worked. We quickly retrieved valuable data and boxed it off to for a refund.

Comments: No complaints so far. We have purchased these drives for backup devices and they have worked great! Very heavy duty looking. All metal case.
