I have owned it for 2 days, connected to my Macbook Pro. It disconnects during use, very erratic in restarting the drive. Also, there is no "on/off" light so it is harder to figure out the status. Customer support is 3 phone numbers away from the phone number provided, and is a toll call. After 10 minutes on hold the recording advises you will be called back, but I haven't been after an 8- hour wait.
