  • Perfect for use with Apple Time Machine
    Verified Purchase

    We've been struggling getting Time Machine to work with our external hard drive and we were advised to replace the external hard drive. This is spacious at 1 TB and comes with both the traditional USB 3.0 cable as well as with the Thunderbolt cable. It's small, good looking, doesn't require an external power source, and works like a dream.
