Very impressed with this drive.

There were two minor problems 'out of the box'.

1. Disc was unreadable on my iMac
2. Unit kept on disconnecting after a minute or so.

No 1 wasn't a problem as I was going to reformat it to Mac Extended format anyway. I'm a little puzzled why it was unreadable as I assume it was in FAT32 format by default and Macs can read FAT formatted discs.

No 2 turned out to be an iffy USB cable supplied with the unit. I swapped the cable and it connected immediately and stayed connected.

I'm using one 750Gb partition as a Time Machine partition and the other as a belt-and-braces backup of my pics and videos.

The unit is quiet (a lot quieter than the WD 500Gb unit it is replacing) and seems a good deal quicker than the WD unit.

At the price it is unbeatable. Delivery was very quick - ordered in Xmas Day evening and it arrived on 30/12/2010, superb, given that 3 of the 5 intervening days were non-working days!
