Who would buy a hard drive without knowing what the rpm's are!!!

-bw quote

This is a good little unit at 3TB, but out of the box it didn't work with all my devices. So I had to completely wipe the drives GPT (GUID Partition Tables) and repartitioned it with an MBR and two separate partitions. Now it works on all my devices without a hitch. I only wish the drive had a power switch as I hate leaving electronics running all the time, regardless of their power saving features.
