Rating: 5/5 You can save money but get similar speed by.... January 11, 2019 1) buying a usb 3.0 or 3.1 4tb drive for say $60-$120 2) buying the thunderbolt to usb dongle for $50 3) buying a thunderbolt cable for $40 Total cost=$150 to $210 and then any tax....as no hard disk can yet fully maximize the thunderbolt's capacity (think of a little water flowing thru a super thick pipe). Ie. The thunderbolt is "too thick" for the flow from the hard drive inside.

But this drive has a "high reliability" reputation and also a "cool-look" factor, which probably makes up the difference. Most cheap drives will have cases made of plastic.

Rating: 5/5 Excellent plug & Play Drive for Mac OS October 31, 2017 I've not had the drive for long, but SO FAR SO GOOD! The drive seems to run a bit warm but doesn't seem to present any issues.

Transferring my 1.5TB worth of files was fast and painless. There was no need to format anything and everything works as expected.

What most impressed me about the drive was the SERVICE associated with the transaction. I placed the order on a Thursday and fully expected to have it by Tuesday of the following week; but in fact it arrived the very next day! That was a big help for me as it provided me the weekend to backup my data. Thanks, MacSales!
