I bought this so that TimeMachine on my iMac could back up to it. I just took it out of the box, plugged it in, and it worked. Well, I think TimeMachine popped up a box and I clicked that I wanted to use it. That was it. It's got 3 TB of storage, which is quite a bit. I've had it for a couple of weeks now, it it has gotten 170GB on it. The 3 TB should last a long time. Yes it might have been a bit more pricy than had I gotten a hard drive and an enclosure and a USB cable, reformatted for the Mac, etc. But it just worked. It is USB 3.0, so if you have a new Mac with USB 3 it will go even faster. (My Mac is just USB 2.)
