1 out of 5 eggsDon't Buy This Drive

Pros: none

Cons: Bought the first drive on 6/3/09 it was DOA on arrival
received RMA return from New Egg on 6/16/09 and this unit was DOA, I just want a refund, I spent more in freight than what it was worth.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great for Powerbook G4 15"

Pros: Very lightweight
Silver color matches the aluminum series Apple laptops/desktops
Very, very quiet, even when doing a huge Time Machine backup
Setup right out of the box for immediate Time Machine backup (HFS+ formatted in the factory)
Firewire bus powered or USB 2.0 bus powered

Cons: Plastic, not as trendy looking as the Lacie and Seagate drives that are designed as Mac accessories

Other Thoughts: Purchased mine at the Apple store for much more as I couldn't wait for shipping, at Newegg's price this thing is a steal.
This type of drive is a must for those of you with Powerbook G4's, as the USB 2.0 bus doesn't provide enough power to drive a portable HD that is powered only by USB 2.0 (unless you want a Y connector, not me). This is powered fully by a FW-400 port on my Powerbook 15" Hi-Res model.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: Small, lightweight, fast with the firewire, decent price.

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: I connect this via firewire to my Powerbook G4 and use it with Leopard's time machine plus to hold my music/photo/video files while I travel. Has worked flawlessly since I got it from Newegg at the end of May 2008.

2 out of 5 eggsweird power supply failure

Pros: Easy and Mac formatted, no external power necissary. Worked great, when it worked...

Cons: The first one I got had the power supply short out after I had put some stuff on it and then plugged it into my roommate's Power Mac G5 to back up some of his files. When I plugged it in via Firewire it shut down the computer immediately and crashed the drive, apparently blowing out the internal power supply. After that plugging it in to any computer it just made a high-pitched electric sound and wouldn't spin up or load on the computer.

Sent that back for a replacement figuring a fluke, then the new one did the same thing after functioning fine for about a week. Not sure what it is, but the power supplies on these seems to be pretty shotty.
