I have since found it does NOT work with the Airport Extreme and Time Machine. Hard drives connected to the Airport Extreme must have their own power source. The Apple tech suggested that a powered USB hub might offer enough power to the drive, but he couldn't be certain. *sigh*

    The price and storage is great. Quality, not so much.

    This is a great hard drive currently at a decent comparative price (only $10 more than another similar drives). The drive itself, This is a great hard drive currently at a decent comparative price (only $10 more than another similar drives). The drive itself, though only a 5400 rpm hard drive is still very fast and will no doubt satisfy the average user. I transferred about 70gb of content in less than 15 minutes the first time I used it - not Thunderbolt 2 speeds but still excellent! I now regularly use the drive to back up content via time machine. I have been told that G-Tech is a very reliable company, and that is certainly reflected in this product! Moreover, the design is great, sleek - I personally like the fact that it is available in black, others are not - and metal which is pleasantly cool to the touch (like my MacBook Pro). The only minor downsides are the fact that the usb cable is detachable - this is good if you want to use your own longer cable but in my instance I worry about losing it when travelling etc. - and, as a drive with moving components it certainly requires a lot of power: my usual power usage when plugged into mains is about 5 to 10 W with my rMBP, with the hard drive plugged in and backing up it is 20 to 30 W. These minor issues are not, however, unique to this product and I would strongly recommend it!
