This is a slick little item

by rushmo@mac.com on 9/25/2007

After my hard drive crashed, I really wished I had been backing up all my data. When I asked the tec who was trying to retrieve what he could, how this can happen to a 1yr old computer, he said it's a disc that spins at 8000 rpm! It can happen. So take a lesson from my mistake. Back it up. I can't say if this would be as easy with a windows based computer, but with a mac, it's a breeze. No confusing set up, no software to run, just plug it in and go. I use mac's built in backup software, and send it all to my FireLite. It doesn't even need to be plugged in. The computer powers it. How easy is that??

I paid a lot less for this directly from Buy.com

I am surprised to find just two and a half weeks after purchase that the item is no longer shown available from buy.com, but from another vendor at a higher price. I paid $92 for this item plus freight free!! At a higher price, it requires further market reviews! This is a brand and an item that I can recommend as reliable and well made. Why anyone wants a USB 2.0 drive is beyond me... Firewire 400 or 800 is the best way to go. This is a compact and simple device - plug it in and it mounts on the desktop. Designed primarily for Mac use, it is a good value at the price I paid for it - at $120 this is another matter. There is a 120gb version for $118 freight free offered .
