          It took a very long time to backup my data (which is typical) on the Canvio Slim II 1TB External HD using Time Machine, but now that it done Time Machine works great on it and the drive is quick and quite. Good deal for under $.

            The best bang for your buck. No need to reformat or download any software. Just plug and play. Transfer file times are fast. Looks great with the rest of the mac products. Only but, is that it takes 3 min to stop spinning once you eject the drive. Still, highly recommended.

              Comments about Toshiba Canvio Slim II 1TB Portable External Hard Drive for Mac (Silver):

              I've had the drive for more than a week now, and it seems to work well. Though the product description does not specify whether this hard drive would work with OSX Mavericks, it actually does. I did not install any software that came with the drive. I just opened Time Machine, and let the backup run on its own. The USB 3.0 made this process very fast. My backups have been hassle-free and efficient. The drive itself is really quiet, and with its brushed aluminum, it looks good alongside my Macbook Pro. I'll update this review in about six months' time to see how well this drive lasts. The shipping from B&H wasn't relatively fast, and was free!! For [$]this hard drive is a steal.
