5.0 out of 5 stars Value for money 22 Jun 2012
I bought this hard drive to turn my digital SAT receiver into a recorder.
I just pluged the hard drive and it worked perfect.
It is quite and does its job without any complaints.
If you are looking for a hard drive for a similar job, i can recommend this one!

Hey, so I'm a newbie when it comes to hard drives and would've thought that you just plug it in and start using it... wrong.
With the Mac, you must reformat the hard drive so that it's compatible with your laptop - in this case, your Mac.
All you do is open 'Disk Utility' in your apps area, then locate to your hard drive on the left hand side and click on the name of the hard drive, then click 'erase' on the right hand side and click the 'Format' button which you should change to 'Mac OSX (External Journaled)', then click Erase.

TADAA!! Your hard drive will now work.
As for the product itself, I bought this for my dad to transfer some movies and shows over and DAYUMMMM this thing transfer stuff over pretty damn fast.
I love this, I'm going to buy another one very, very soon.
Don't hesitate to get this - it's awesome.

If you're a mac user and this helped you, please thumbs up so that other people can see this (others who are newbies like I was. lol)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great quality USB 3 portable drive at a good price!
I was looking for a well made, self powered USB 3 hard drive. Only been using it for a few hours today to store music files, but it feels like I made a good choice here. The drive is silent in operation. It has a useful blue LED drive activity light at the cable end of the unit. The supplied cable is well made and around 40cms in length.

3.0 out of 5 stars Only for experts? 10 Dec 2012
By gaudete

As others have commented,you just plug this in,press a button, and it performs a back up function-simple. However there is no information on what happens after this-do you keep it plugged in all the time? The first time I tried to retrieve some photos I got a message esaying I wasn`t authorized to view! After pressing the continue button, which said it would `sort this out`,nothing happened. Having copied previously onto disc,and viewed the information without any trouble,these sort of external hard drives appear to need just a bit more knowledge than `Joe Bloggs`has.

its okay, connector to the drive a bit loose does not always connect properly have wiggle it sometimes

States Hitachi in the ad but its a touro drive made by Western digital, which is a hgst company that is apparently Hitachi ??? who know very confusing.

It does the job okay other than the connector issue. the connector is not a standard USB. I would not like to lose this connector as the drive would then be unusable as it cannot be easily replaced
