    Finally I don't have to worry about running out of backup space for a while. It's great to be able to consolidate backups from various drives onto one device.

    This is a good backup device, however it could be better by allowing transaction by transaction backups and the ability to back up multiple machines wirelessly.

    This drive is a great option for external backups and for general storage. The transfer speeds with USB 3 meet all my needs for backing up gigs of photos.

    I have several of these units and rotate them for backups on our virtual data center. This is not the primary backup but it is nice to have secondary off-line backups in the event of a malware attack.

    The drive works fine for backing up files. I don't know if I would use it as a drive to work off of because it's fairly noisy.
