    I’ve been wanting one of these for a few years. Was using a WD MyBook for external drive but didn’t liked the build quality, noise or speed. Never really trusted it, though it never let me down. Just didn’t give me that warm fuzzy feeling. Well after my 10 yr old Dell died it was time for a new desktop. I bought this 4TB drive a week later for photo storage and system backups. So far I’ve been very pleased. It’s faster, sounds better ( more professional if that makes sense or means anything ) and looks better to me. At first the light on the front was a little annoying at night but it’s easy enough to cover. Hopefully I’ll feel the same way about it in a few years. Time will tell. All I know is the warm fuzzy feeling is back and I’m diggin it.

    I am very tech savy, this model is mac compatible, 3.0 and the drive comes with its own power source and fan. This is huge as it does not drain my own battery, fast transfer of data, and I don't have to worry about the driver getting too hot. I constantly transfer around 8G.B of data at a time and it takes a couple of minutes max. I make and edit videos and this external drive is awesome. I didn't get the thunderbolt model because that's pointless because everyone has usb, and not everyone has a thunderbolt slot. Great so far, and haven't had a problem, it has a power button feature as well that I like and very mac friendly, no software needed to use, plug and play as i would call it.

    Working Great So Far

    I bought this drive to replace a faulty Western Digital 3TB My Book, which I just didn't like. I am using it to store about 50,000 photos and 750 videos which my 500MB internal drive could not handle. Since I bought it, I have been rebuilding my entire Lightroom catalog, so it has been working very hard. The drive is practically silent; if it weren't for the blinking blue "G", I wouldn't be able to tell it's working. That is a good thing. Only time will tell, if it holds up.

    So I own a MacBook Air Mid 2012 model running MacOS and had two different hard drives that were relatively low in space, and so far I've tried various drives from WD, LaCie, and a G-Drive, and so far I've had no issues with the drive and it has far exceeded my expectation with the USB 3.0 cable settings.

    I purchased this drive because I wanted something that worked well with the new USB-C connections on the 2017 Macbook Pro. Very impressed. One very pleasant surprise - the hard drive powers the computer. So, you don't have to use up one of those precious ports for the drive by itself. Speed seems fast and setup took no effort at all. I use it for backups.

    We are shooting a short for a film festival and are using this drive to transfer our 4k footage. Unfortunately are shooting all exteriors in the sweltering Sacramento triple digit heat. This drive performed superbly and we transferred all our footage back and forth between our editor and the set with no hiccups. This is an amazing drive and excellent price.

    Looks great and matches my 5K iMac. Easy to set up literally just plug and play. Can't comment on the long term quality yet but so far everything about this drive is awesome. Speeds aren't the fastest within it's class but I'm using it strictly for my backups and the speeds are more than adequate.

    The drive did what I needed and did it quickly. The transfer speeds exceeded my requirements but the cost was higher than a comparable USB3 drive by a factor of 2 with half the capacity. But I am happy with the performance and that is what counts.
