Big and quiet!,
I am very pleased with this purchase. It reformatted to a Mac-compatible file system following the instructions that came with the drive in seconds. It now serves as a Time Machine back-up drive.
There is no power button, instead it does not turn on until both the power and the USB are connected and turns itself to sleep after a few minutes' inactivity. The drive still appears on your computer when in this power-saving mode, and only takes a second or two to come back to life when you try to access it.
The drive is very quiet - much more so than the Iomega drive it replaced.
Regarding speed, it took a few hours to back up my entire hard drive, but that is to be expected.
In conclusion a good drive, well made with simplistic but satisfactory instructions and an intelligent power-saving feature
