Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is one serious bit of kit! I've just changed from a Tower PC with 3 internal drives to a MacBook Pro and needed somewhere to put the drives. The device was housed in stout packaging, which Amazon seem to think needed to put inside another box about 4 times the size along with some paper filler, but that's all for the good.

Delivery was on time, I'd asked for next day delivery and received an email from the shippers to say that it would be delivered between 8 and 9 the following morning and they were spot on.

Installation was a piece of cake and took about 10 minutes to install all three. Apart from the fact that it just works it's very well constructed looks really good and it's pleasantly quiet as well.

If you search Amazon you will find many other multi-drive enclosures, but most set them up in some form of raid configuration, which I didn't want. All three show as separate drives on my desktop; one has been set for Apples Timeline backup system.

Wasn't sure when I placed the order but I'm very glad I did now. Well done everyone; highly recommended.

Mr. I. Simms says:
Is this product actually as large as the dimensions given by Amazon? The smallest dimension given is 21.4 cm which is pretty enormous, wider than my current Mac Pro in fact! I know it's round, but is it actually as huge as the dimensions suggest?

Actual dimensions of the unit are Height: 180mm Width (diameter): 170mm Depth: 190mm. I guess the dimensions quoted are for the box it comes in.

Hope this helps.

Hi, It specifically states Not suitable for Apple computers in the Amazon spec (final sentence). Technically, I can't see for the life of me why that should be and you appear to be using it exclusively with Apple.. Care to comment? Cheers David

Hi David,
Absolutely no reason why it won't work with Apple computers. I've used mine with both my Macbook Pro and now my iMac. I've got two 1TB drives and a 640GB installed in the unit all formatted HFS+. The two 1TB drives are used for backup; 1 for Time Machine and the other for Carbon Copy Cloner.
Very pleased with my set up and would recommend it to any Mac user.

Kind regards,
John

Hi John,
As I thought. Thank you for that. Doubtless Amazon covering their back... I have only known one external device that was less than compatible and that was an early NAS device.. Happy New Year when it arrives!

Kind regards

David
