Ease of Use

So far. Nice styling sitting next to a MacBook Pro. Doing Firewire transfers of video for archival without any problems. Actually liked the fanless design for quietness.

Works as Advertised -- No Complaints

by Randy on 9/26/2007

This drive is used for video editing on a MacBook Pro, so we reformatted it to the Mac file system to handle the large files. We use the Firewire connections for reliable transfer of video files and to daisy-chain devices. It has worked well so far and gives us a lot more room to keep multiple versions of a project. It's very quiet and compact (smaller than another Fantom drive purchased earlier and holding 200Gb). I wouldn't hesitate to get another one.

Solid Unit

on 9/27/2007

Owned a few of these over the years in different capacities. All solid units. Great for data back-up and photo archiving. Reasonably priced (with rebates, usually). A good buy.
