4 out of 5 eggsNice drive

Pros: -Fast (80MB+ read and write on USB3.0)
-Seems rugged

Cons: -It disconnected once in a while. I changed the cable and it seems and I have not have any problems since, but I usually don't move it when its connected.

Other Thoughts: -Encryption software is nice although as mentioned in another post it only works under Windows. It would be nice to use it with my MAC or Linux.

5 out of 5 eggsSo far awesome

Pros: Works fast
Mac friendly
Very small and portable
USB powered

Cons: Encryption only in Windows
TurboPC and TurboCopy only for Windows

Other Thoughts: I have only had the MiniStation Plus 1TB for a day. Out of box it works fine. Open on my mac min no prob. The guide took me to my disk utility. Copied all default data that came preinstalled to my mac first then repartition the drive using the OS X disk utility.

After a bit of googling I decided to format as follows:
120Gb - MAC OS X Journaled(extended) safe mac format
420Gb - ExFat (FAT 64) next gen FAT32 OS X 10.6.5 and later can read, write, and create exFAT partitions.
640Gb - FreeSpace

I bought the 1Tb drive to transfer files from a pc to mac and still be able back up with a future pc. My current portable 500Gb backup drive is formated NTFS. WIll reform that one when its finished backing up. Does anyone know what format is best for booting Win 7? When you build, does the installed WIN partition a small NTFS. In the long run is it best to keep data and applications in FAT64?

Will rereview after using it at 3.0 ect. SO far great external drive!
