I have a 500mb version of this drive which works perfectly as a time machine when connected to my Airport Extreme. When I got this 1TB my MacBook Pro would no longer see the AE and the drive made an odd squeaking noise when connected. Apple promptly sent me a replacement but the same happened again. When it's plugged in to the MBP via Firewire or USB it works silently and quickly. Plug it in to the AE and it doesn't work. I can't knock the product or Apple's service but I'm disappointed with the compatibility issue.
