I use these for my photography anytime I'm not at home or in my studio. Though they can be a bit pricey, they're super durable and haven't failed me to date - even when an assistant drops or bumps it while running.  If you use drives for work or have highly valuable data that you travel with - I'd highly recommend these workhorses for your arsenal

I have this in the 4TB option. It's perfect and gives you a peace of mind knowing you won't lose files if your hard drive gets dropped or damaged. It's a lot sturdier than a lot of other hard drives. If that's something you're looking for then this is perfect for you!

I am in love with this drive. It works BEAUTIFULLY with my macbook pro 13in with retina. I stupidly bought the Macbook without the hard drive before I started design school. I didn't know anything about file sizes and flash memory. So I bought this drive because my flash kept filling up, making me unable to use any of my software. I love that this drive works with my time machine app and will auto back up my computer. I bought the 1TB with the thunderbolt cable. If you spend the money on this product, you will NOT be sorry!

As an editor, I love when my company gets these for when we go out on the road. They are durable and have a cable built into it, which is really REALLY helpful. It's pretty fast and I've never had any issues with them (and I have like 10 of theses). Would definitely recommend.

I am a graphic designer for a local university and I purchased this hard drive to back up my files. I'm constantly on the go and worried that my drive might get damaged! This drive is holding up well and works very quickly. I have it adjusted to work with my Mac and my PC. I highly recommend this product for anyone who abuses their gear.

Not as fast as I thought it would be, but you can't beat the size, weight & durability. I purchased it for my music files/protools sessions and photos, and it's perfect for that.

I am a film major so I use this on a daily basis. I keep all my film projects on it. Ive had mine for a year and I love it to death. It has so much storage on it. Very helpful if you have a lot to store on it.

Solid drive with durable construction, though the speeds are not as fast as advertised (even following directions and using a new high-spec computer). The rain resistance is a plus!
