Does everything it should

Over the years I have had many desktop drives. This is the best so far. I have it configured to provide continuous backup using MacOS Time Machine. It is quiet, simple to set up and does exactly what I want it to. It sits on my desk and does its thing. I only know it is there when I sometimes notice the white lights on the front marching up and down.
