Good little drive but no encryption for Macs
Reviewed by Anonymous Review Posted 25/04/2012
Very attractive little hard drive with good capacity but it is shame that the encryption does not work with Macs. If you are a Mac owner and need hardware encryption then try the Western Digital range instead which works very nicely.
