    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and silent Had to clone my hard drive to an empty external HD in order to install new OS. The OWC HD performed flawlessly. It now also performs my Time Machine backup. It's simple, unobtrusive, works in the background, and is reliable.
    Date published: 2016-04-13
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good looking, not the smallest. A littel too big compared to other brands. The accesories like the firewire cable are very well made. A little pricey but worth the investiment.
