Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job very well. After having a house fire and having my solitary caddy-mounted internal 3.5" backup hard drive thankfully retrieved by the fire brigade while my house was burning down (thanks boys!), and NOT losing every family photo taken over 20 years, I was somewhat more paranoid about redundancy since! A quick trip to Maplin and purchase of two of these bad boys later, one stays at home and one stays at work, and once a week I backup the desktop to the home drive and then swap that with the one at work, so desktop and both backup drives are NEVER in the same building at the same time. They are perfect, fast drives, have a cable retainer built into the side and having been in the military, I have faith in the Mil-Spec construction standards. They have both been dropped and still work fine, I have no doubt they could take much more punishment than they have. Having spoken to the forensic investigator the insurance company hired, I have no doubt these would have survived the heat/smoke/asbestos/water that would have killed the previous drive.

Hi. Is this product compatible with the iPhone 5 and MacBook Pro? Thank you.

Asked by: Poleplant
Once re-formatted for Mac OS this should be fine for use with the MacBook. We cannot guarantee compatibility with the iPhone as external drives are usually not supported by iOS.

Does this device work well with usb2? thanks

Asked by: pete
USB 3.0 (SuperSpeed) connections can transfer up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 The drive will operate on a USB 2 system, however the maximum data transfer rates are greatly reduced. The USB 2.0 standard offers a theoretical maximum signalling rate of 480 megabits per second, while USB 3.0 defines a maximum rate of 5 gigabits per second. In other words, USB 3.0 is theoretically more than ten times faster than USB 2.0.

Can it be password protected?

Asked by: Evelyn
Yes and no.  The drive itself has no password protection, but there's freeware available to download (both Mac and PC) that you can use to password-protect a folder, and you can limit file permissions from your OS.
