Worth the money, well designed and averages at 95mbs on a Mac
on 5 August 2015
Ok, I'm a disgruntled hard drive man at the moment since one of my drives has just failed (one from my 8TB WD Mybook Duo Thunderbolt). I ordered this before it had though which was lucky!
Anyway, I'm a mac user. That means all the software on the disk which it comes with can be erased and the whole thing should be formatted in Mac OS Extended if thats your thing.
First thing I noticed was the design is pretty cool, and its concave on the edge giving it a nice grip.
USB 3 so it is powered by the USB cable which is nice too!
After formatting I did a Black Magic Speed Test, then copied over 30GB of photos. The transfer rates are pretty good at 120MB/s (pics attached), but as I'm writing its dropped to 95 MB/s.
My advice to any HDD user is ALWAYS eject the drive through software, drives can fail if you dont. So dont just unplug that cord when you're done with it.
On the surface it's a pretty cool piece of kit and worth the money.
