seems to do the job,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Toshiba PA4239E-1HJ0 1TB Stor.E ALU2S USB 3.0 2.5 Inch PORTABLE STORAGE - Silver (Personal Computers)
Ok, so I ordered this after reading a review that said it worked really well on a Mac. I needed a backup drive for my new iMac and the size and design of this one look perfect especially taking advantage of the usb powering. After it arrived the box just gave PC system requirements I looked again at the reviews and could not find the favourable one just the one by p.zdrahal saying that it didn't work on a Mac. PANIC!
However I plugged it in switched on and hey presto the machine recognised the new drive lunched Time Machine I confirmed that I wanted to use it for Time Machine backups, and in less than a minute it had reformatted the drive and was taking a first backup. Perfect. I guess I need to test a restore, but as I'm a complete Mac novice I don't know how to do that yet. As a result can't give it five stars but would do otherwise.

Simple answer is yes. Done a couple of important restores from it now too. The Time Machine backup app on the mac is the business, and this drive has worked just fine with it for me
