    I bought the exact same model in the 1TB version back in November and paid $69.99 on Amazon so this seems like a very good prices.

    I use it for precisely what is mentioned here – TimeMachine. Works great!

    Just got a 3TB, I am going to partition it for Time Machine and media. Score!

  3. I’ve had nothing but trouble from each WD disk I’ve ever purchased. Luckily they failed out of the box when I was attempting to format them so I just took them right back to Fry’s. A friend ignored my thumbs down and bought one. 2 months later it just failed to show up in Disk Utility. WD sent him a replacement that was clearly remanufactured but he’d gotten a Seagate already. When the 3rd drive failed after a month, he used it to test the local gravitation constant from atop the physics building.

    I don’t recommand WD,
    I don’t recommand USB on Mac (FireWire is better)
    So this disk is not for me, and I don’t recommend it :/

    I used a WD external for a while as a Time Machine. However, the extra noise every time a backup ensued started driving me crazy. I bought a USB-powered drive which is practically noiseless. My backups probably take a little longer, but since I don’t hear it, I don’t care.

    For the 2TB it looks like 89.99 to me. :(
