I would recommend it to anyone looking for more drive space.
JOHN W KELLEY
Their on-line help is nearly nonexistent, submission of an email was answered but the reply was basically useless and non-eventful.

My MAC recognized it right away, just plugged it in and it worked.

Lets start with why I purchased this...well after running out of space on my internal 1TB SATA III Hitachi hard drive, I had to make a decision to either buy a second larger internal 2TB hard drive or go external to use for additional data storage. I weighed the benefits of getting an internal one...fast theoretical native SATA III 6Gbps interface speed, no desktop clutter/wires etc vs the disadvantages...fixed not removable/portable so cannot be connected to a router or laptop computer etc.

I ultimately decided to go external because I definitely prefer the option of being able to disconnect the hard drive and connecting it to another computer or device such as a router for streaming/sharing. I'm aware that I also could share an internal hard drive over the network with other devices but that means 1) My computer needs to be on 2) My computer will slow down if another device is streaming content from it...been there done that. With an external hard drive I could just connect it to my router which has USB ports and it will automatically be accessible from other network devices without affecting my computer in any way. Not only that but when using USB 3.0 (5Gbps) and directly connected to a computer the theoretical transfer rate is not much slower than SATA III (6Gbps). Regardless the bottle neck will be the mechanical transfer speed of the hard drive which is around 125MB/s (1Gbps) anyway. Also even though the drive inside the Buffalo unit is a SATA II (3Gbps) model the mechanical transfer rate is still well below that interface's theoretical speed. Only when using Wi-Fi on my new

First use of external drive, connected via 3.0 USB to my computer. Was slow at first. Did some research and found (for Windows 7 users) that when installed into Windows 7 it is set up to be "quickly" detached. If your external hard drive stays "permanently" connected to your external hard drive, use device manager and change the drives "policies" to optimize for speed. After changing the setting I am now getting full speed.

Bought the 2TB for external storage with Wii U. Setting it up was a snap, just plug it in, follow a couple on screen prompts, and you're all set. No issues, no crashes, plays full retail games downloaded from the eShop without so much as a hiccup. If you are planning to go all digital with Wii U, I cannot recommend this enough. Perfect little companion. I've got it hiding in the entertainment center and you'd never even know it's there. Thanks mostly to the fanless design, I never hear it in operation. I can't comment on how well it works as PC storage, as I didn't buy it for purpose... But as a storage option for Wii U, I can not think of a single complaint.

Color Name: BLACKSize Name: 1 TB Verified Purchase
UPDATE: One day I noticed no activity on the back up and checked and the drive was dead - less than a year after purchasing it. Amazon is outstanding though and took care of me. This is the 2nd brand drive to just die.

It's a lot harder to find a good back-up drive than it should be. I bought a Transcend portable drive a week ago and it was a big disappointment. It required 2 USB ports to work, had lots of errors on every back up - basically failed on each one. Errors said the files were in use. Yup! - I do have to leave the computer on in order for the back up to occur at 3:00 a.m. and I'm not going to shut every program down every night. I did not have that problem with the other back-up units. And on the search goes for a simple to use, doesn't die, decent software interface, non-USB powered back-up unit. Who knew what a pain it would be.

I did a lot of research to find a good back up product since my last one died without warning (Western Digital). This one had good reviews and it works seamlessly. The only thing I don't like is the back-up software - seems like a DOS based product shoved into a windows interface. Crude and clumsy softare but once I figured it out, it works great. P.S. I'm of the opinion if I have to read the manual, your product is not that great. I still didn't read the manual and figured it out so not that hard, I guess.

Shipped later than expected but it came sooner than expected through Amazon & Smartpost. The Buffalo is not modular but it does have the capacity to put a fan in the unit if you feel it is necessary to cool the components. Buffalo also gives you a 3 year warranty on the Velocity products so they have faith in their units. Because it shipped later than expected I attempted to cancel the order and just get it locally. The next day the price went down $20.00. Amazon graciously credited my account. I am very pleased with Amazon and the Buffalo Velocity. I also have a Seagate Goflex. The Goflex is modular in that the power and USB connection can be changed to Firewire if that is what you want(cost extra). That is a good thing so if the power/USB module fails you do not have to send your data to Seagate for an RMA(mine did fail). My motherboard only has USB2.0 ports and the unit works as expected, I have ordered a USB 3.0 adapter. When I get that I will be able to see how it transfers files using USB3.0 speeds between the 2 external 3TB drives that I have. It seems to be a solid unit. The case is barely warm to the touch. I am considering getting a fan for the unit just because I can.
