  GREAT But s-l-o-w------,  2011-10-09
By Tony Cardinale

When my current 500GB drive was failing to save Time Machine backups, I scouted drives online in an anxious hurry to replace it. The FD GreenDrive’s memory-per-dollar ratio was exactly what I was looking for! When I received it, set up was a no-brainer, however, I did have to reformat for Mac - which, I might add, was a bit puzzling. It was bit tricky at first (no fault of GreenDrive), but became fairly easy once I searched Apple’s Support page to learn how to perform a reformat. Once executed, it didn’t take too long (about 25 min.) and I was off and running to eagerly set it up with Time Machine.
Well, fast forward 2 days later, and it backed up the full 155 GB of my hard drive. Yep - it took 2 days. Anyway, that being said, it is operating as advertised, and it’s a pretty solid performer. I use it in a recording studio environment, and it’s very quiet. No more Time Machine "Failure to backup" alerts.
If you’re NOT looking for a speed demon, but rather, a slow and rock-steady drive for a really low price, this is the drive for you.
