    Great product at a very reasonable price, Considering all Hard Drives have taken a drastic price hike due to Flooding in Asia Destroying Hard Drive motor manufacturing plants. You will find it hard to find a bare 2Tb drive for that price.

    I bought this drive on sale because it has a great manufacturer's warranty, is USB 3.0 (which my ThinkPad supports), and the capacity/cost ratio was excellent.

    I quickly learned this drive has a Samsung HD204UI drive inside (some reports say newer units may have Seagate drives as Samsung was acquired by them).

    The HD204UI is infamous for having been released with a firmware defect that can cause data loss as a result of certain combinations of SATA commands (this was fixed on drives produced after a certain date, but it is impossible to determine the date of manufacture for the drive inside the enclosure). In theory, the USB enclosure is not able to transfer or initiate those commands, so in theory the firmware defect does not apply to drives in USB enclosures...but nonetheless, after 8 or so hours of nonstop surface testing and occasionally asking the drive to re-identify, after safely removing the drive and reconnecting it, the partition table was wiped.

    For the non-techy:
    "SOME" of these drives "MAY" be susceptible to a design defect that can cause data loss which can't be recovered by non-techy people.

    If there was a way to verify the build date of the drive inside I would have exchanged for another, but it's too big a risk...I returned it. Price-wise, I regret returning it since the sale price made it a great deal, but I need reliability.

    Good so far

    Comments about Verbatim 2TB Store 'n' Save USB 3.0 Desktop Hard Drive:

    I bought this one as a replacement for a 1 TB Verbatim drive that I have had for 5 years. The prior one still works fine but I wanted the faster transfer speed and larger size for my iMAC Time Machine backups. I found the older one could be slowing down my MAC. SO far, this unit is fine. I am not sure the transfer speed are as fast as advertised since I have not done any testing to be sure. However, it did back up about 450 mgs of data in about 3-4 hours. I am unsure of the actual time since I left it to run overnight. Installation was plug and play, hit a few keys and off it goes. (But that is also a nice function of iMACs- you do not have to do much work to get them to run properly. Sorry, you Windows users! ;-) I had no problems with the older one so I am guessing this one will be the same. I have only had a few days but I am happy so far.

          I set this drive for the Mac and it connected very well, does the back ups with no problems,
          I have had it for a short period of time, beyond that We shall see, you cannot hear it run-very quiet.
