Having switched my NAS (raid 5) box to archiving I needed a new TimeMachine and this little drive fits the purpose. USB3, so fast on my MBA (not quite so fast on my USB2 only iMac) it comes out of the safe to get hooked up to each computer about once a fortnight or so. Should my Time Capsule fail, I now have a second copy that should never be too old - and almost all my working and oft-updated files and emails are synced between my iMac and MBA via the cloud anyway, so a few weeks or a month old is not a major problem.
I've noticed the USB adapter can be replaced with a Thunderbolt connector if necessary (although the connector isn't exactly cheap) - would be a consideration if I end up with several of these drives.
I also have the 500GB drive (to carry around as a supplementary drive with my MBA) but that's USB3 only (shame) but I'm not complaining.
So far, these drives have been good value. …
