                As a filmmaker I have a lot of Raw video footage, and edits that I need to store for my costumers. I've recently decided to invest in the VoyagerQ Drive reader, and have purchased this 1 TB drive to use as a back up drive. The Price is right and so far everything works great.

                        This was installed on an iMac G5 to replace an 80GB hard drive that was still running but probably past its useful life. It's great to have so much room on the hard drive! So far, it's running just fine.
