Nice Hard Drive

Just purchased this, I'm happy for now. reformated it for Mac as I believe it should be. I'm not using the Drive Utility, just Time Machine for smoother results. I think it's safer to have two drive in case of trouble.

Good product, but terrible support!

While this is a good product, my rating is specific to the quality of technical support that I've experienced from the manufacturer. I purchased two of these drives for use with an iMac and quickly found out that technical support from Western Digital (WD) is virtually non-existent. While the drive works great with a Mac, the bundled 'Drive Utility' software for controlling RAID state setup crashes repeatedly and my emails to WD have produced little in the way of useful information. In one response the tech support person didn't appear to know what the Drive Utility software was given they suggested I use Time Machine to control backups. I'm still waiting for a more informative response from WD. I've also tried downloading updated Drive Utility software from the WD website and it too crashes on each and every attempt to start the program. WD has a long page about issues related to iOS releases and how to reformat the drive for use with a Mac.I would suggest that WD is more focused on the PC market for this 8T drive and less towards Mac users. Bottom line -- if you're a technically aware Mac user and familiar with troubleshooting software issues buy this drive. If you expect to rely on WD for help, find an alternative drive to meet your needs.
