The drive is great! Tons of storage! Only negative is it makes some noticeable noise while it's being used. I have several external drives that are mostly silent. The drive is hooked up to my tv entertainment PC and is about 7 feet from my couch and the sound of it searching for files is clearly audible. For me though it's not a deal breaker
Considering the deal I acquired through Overstock this product is surprisingly excellent! I have downloaded Grateful Dead concerts using the Optical Drive and the clarity and the space saving mechanisms are terrific! When you are in the market for an external disk drive this is the ticket!
I use this drive on my Macbook Pro to run VMware virtual machines. No issues at all, and there are no noticeable performance differences between this drive and the internal drive when running virtual machines.
