5 Star Review:
I bought an almost identical unit from Officeworks about 6 months ago - an ID6AP3 500 - and it has so far performed flawlessly. In fact I am going to buy another today to back up a new machine.

1 Star Review
Found that the drive repeatedly disconnects and immediately reconnects interrupting data transfer, triggering USB detection during continuous writing. Desktop drive connected to same USB 3.0 port performing the same operation has no problem. Maybe the problem is the cable or I am just unlucky and got a bad unit but I do not want to diagnose further so I returned it 10 days after purchase with original packaging and receipt to a different Officewors store who accepted it without much trouble. Thanks.
