Top reviews from the United States
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I was looking for a MAC time machine backup drive and noticed the external drives labeled as MAC were $10 - $15 more. I then read the Q&A on this drive and someone gave the most perfect instructions:
"right out of the box it's not Mac ready, but the solution is real easy. You go to Utilities and open up Disk Utility. With the drive plugged in, select it and go to the Erase tab and there should be a drop down menu with Format. Select Mac OS and click erase and after that's done, the drive should be formatted for Mac and you can save to your heart's content."
I might only add where to find Disk Utility in case you didn't know ... in finder go to the applications folder and in that folder is utilities and in that folder is disk utility.
I did just as the person in Q&A said and the second it was done reformatting a box came up asking if I wanted to use this drive as a time machine backup drive. I said yes, and within 107 seconds I was done. Color me impressed!
We got the 1tb drive because we have a 1tb 21.5" iMac from Nov 2013.
I hope this helps someone. I will update this review later as to longevity of the drive.
UPDATE: May 6, 2018
7 months later and this little backup drive does what it should do. We have never needed to utilize the files it stores, but it is nice to know the files are there. I periodically check to make sure my Mac is recording on this drive and it functions perfectly as a time machine drive.

El único "problema" fue en el empaque en el que llegó, era una caja sin ningún tipo de protección más que el proporcionado por Toshiba.
