Companion for Linux

by Leonardvernstein on 9/17/2010

Something finally arrived for Linux. Im only happy that it supports Debian, which was a problem with earlier drives. Based on how this is gonna perform will get a 4 terabyte soon.

From my experience, the real pluses are 1) simplicity and 2) easy organization. Easy upgrade, printer access, pic transfer are other merits that I find in this system. Well worth the buy.
