Is this able to work with a windows 8 PC?

Yes, but you will have to format it before use (instructions included).

Hi, I need to replace a dead hard drive in my mid-2011 iMac but would prefer not cracking it open. Can I use the firewire connectivity with this external SSD to boot up and use for storage? Or should I consider a thunderbolt connection using something like the Akitio Thunder SATA Dock with an external SSD? Thank you for your advice!
Asked by: John K.
Both interfaces are bootable, but Thunderbolt is much faster than Firewire.

Asked by: Eugen
The drives are easily swapped out. The only tool needed is a Phillips screwdriver.
