Rating: 5/5 Great Drive July 24, 2016 I'm a bit late reviewing this drive, which I've now been using for 5 years. I bought it for a clone backup, and I've got a few other drives like this one (all less than 1 TB, though). Never a failure, just a great little backup drive and I'm 100% satisfied with this line. It fits perfectly in my bank safe deposit box, also can be carried with me when necessary. Very small footprint. My favorite backup drive.

Rating: 5/5 TimeMachine Drive Replacement July 23, 2016 I bought this drive to replace the 2TB external drive (not an OWC product) TimeMachine drive that Drive Genius told me was failing after only 5 months! I like that the new drive has an on/off switch since I am backing up a MBP that isn't always connected to the TimeMachine drive. As an aside, no drive lasts forever so I'm happy to have another quality drive case for when the inevitable happens.

Spare yourself poor quality and frequent failures and shop OWC.

Rating: 4/5 Good product but cable too short June 13, 2016 This portable hard drive works well, efficiently , and quietly as part of my backup strategy. I trust OWC products from long experience with them.

Unfortunately there is one disappointment. The FireWire connection cable that came with the hard drive is much too short to be truly useful. It is difficult to use it with my iMac and reach the drive sitting on my desk near the computer. OWC should provide a longer cable for this product.

Other than that. it's a fine product.

Rating: 4/5 Silent and easy setup. May 30, 2016 A small. silent and cool running unit. Using it as a redundant backup drive for my OWC Elite Pro Dual 6Tb which houses all the work files freed from my 1Tb 2010 iMac. Lots of open space left on all the hard drives now. It lacks a Thunderbolt port so it cannot connect directly to the Elite Pro Dual and has to be routed by my iMac via USB2 for slower than desired backups. As a photographer, I leave it always connected for frequent backups of work in progress.The OWC tech person said that should not be a concern. The resiliency of the clear plastic housing is a concern. The large bright LED is annoying.

Rating: 5/5 So surprised at the speed! May 15, 2016 I knew what to expect with the body, the weight and the sturdiness of this drive, but I had no idea of how good the speed would be. With previous 500 OWC Mercury On-The-Go USB drives, I always had dependability in making a clone of my internal hard drive, but the process usually took an hour, at least. The first few times I used this new drive, I was convinced that something was wrong...the entire process takes less than 10 minutes! It's wonderful! Totally worth the extra cost and I am totally happy and satisfied with the performance of the device.

So this was a good move. Like all the products I've purchased from OWC so far, no glitches, no issues, the OWC Mercury On-The-Go Portable 2.5" FW800/USB3.0 went straight to work.

Rating: 5/5 Simply Awesome! April 3, 2016 Rather than wipe and destroy a SATA hard drive that I replaced with a solid-state drive that I purchased from OWC, I saw this as an option to continue using the SATA hard drive. The assembly process was simple, thanks to the comprehensive tutorial. Everything is included here, even the USB cables. As an added benefit, the drive is powered by the USB cable, so no separate power cable is needed. I now have a bootable drive that I can use when I travel. The padded carrying case protects the drive and holds the cable.
