I bought this drive from another retailer, but I assure you I own it. I've owned it for less than a week and in that time it has corrupted and become unreadable twice. I am using Linux Ubuntu 13.10 and I got this drive to store my ever increasing media library. The only real use this hard drive got was from my downloads going onto the drive. One minute it was working, the next, completely unreadable. I have been trying to recover the files I have lost but unfortunately it looks like I may have to reformat the drive completely, losing out on some valuable photos and files. I do not recommend this at all. No hard drive should corrupt after a day or two of light torrent usage. Avoid this one.
