Looks great, it maintains the A Bought this to store all my school stuff and any other additional stuff that I don't want to lose. Looks great, it maintains the Apple aesthetic of the silver and black. Speed is a little slow, but it is great if you want it for something simple, and won't be using it every day.

The second drive had all of the exact same problems as the first and even failed permanently after 9 months. I've never had one of these hard drives last longer than 9 months and I STRONGLY DISCOURAGE anyone from considering this product. …
