A lot for the money

on 5/17/2008

I purchased this drive after surveying prices and models for weeks. Fast, easy to use, and great price (I think I paid 239 or so). Love the FW 800 using Time Machine under OSX. Formatted 500 GB of it NTFS to backup my home PCs, too. Not too thrilled about the plastic case. Seems cheap.

Gr8 product for a good price

by MK on 10/8/2008

Its really fast in transferring the files. really silent and comes with a compact size. Only thing is tht it gets lil hot which I think can be compensated with the performance. If u gonna use it continously dont go for this bcas of its heat emission but for few breaks this is a fine product. This product is for Mac users but if u have a windows dont worry the installation is no big deal. I have a windows vista and it works fine for me.

Product Overview

Speed is what you need when for video editing, big design projects, or managing photo shoots and that’s what this drive delivers with FireWire 800 and eSATA connectivity. With our automatic backup capability your creative masterpieces will be backed up the minute you save them.

  • Easy to set up, easy to use - Installation is a snap because you don't really install this drive, you just plug it in and it's ready to use. There is no CD to install; the included software loads from the drive the first time you plug it in.
  • Automatic backup - Back up important projects to multiple destinations including files servers, portable drives and My Book. Synchronize project files to keep them current and secure. Set it and forget it; every time you save a change it's automatically backed up.
  • Powerful quad interface - USB 2.0: For convenience and compatibility among multiple computers. FireWire 400 and 800: High-performance interfaces that are perfect for Macintosh® computers. eSATA 3 Gb/s: The ultra-fast eSATA interface gives you speed comparable to a state-of-the-art internal hard drive.
  • Formatted for Macintosh - Set up with HFS+ Journaled formatting for complete Macintosh compatibility. Software included requires Mac® OS X 10.4.8 or later. Can easily be reformatted for Windows 2000/XP/Vista.
  • Fits right in - Takes no more space than a paperback book. Collect two or more and they nest neatly together like volumes on a shelf.
  • Capacity gauge - See at a glance how much space is available on your drive. (Works with the USB and FireWire connection only.)
  • Environmentally friendly - Our environmentally-friendly drive is designed to save power by going into standby mode after 10 minutes of inactivity. When you’re ready to use it, My Book wakes up automatically.
  • SmartPower™ features - This drive turns itself on and off with your computer and Safe Shutdown™ prevents the drive from being powered down until all your data has been written. (Works with the USB and FireWire connections only.)
  • Designed to keep the drive inside cool - The My Book enclosure’s heat dissipating design with Morse Code prevents heat buildup… a notorious data killer. How cool is that?
