This is great. I especially like the back-up button which I haven't been able to find with other external drives for Mac. As a videographer, having external drives are essential. I too like the smallness of the mini, but adding an external drive under the MacMini is not too bad for me.

BTW, is their a U.S. distributor for these drives?

ADS Tech has one for 59.95 that has a back-up button. You will need to supply the drive with this model.

It's USB. Who the heck cares what it has if it's not firewire?

Ah, it's updated. So that switch on the back switches between "auto" and "1394".

Yep! The only negative I see with the M9 is that it's made out of plastic.

Well, we won't know until someone has one whether the thing runs cool enough to use under the mini.

You are correct. We need to see how the M9 performs in living color. I was merely talking about the M9's specs.

Okay, I need to follow this thread. Is there a way I can get an email notice for updates.

I'm looking to purchase another external HD for my video work, and so I'm interested in the M9. Anyone purchased it yet? Feedback?

If you look way down in the left hand corner of the page you will see "Watch this topic for replies" click on that and you are all set.

I am also interested in this M9 but it has not shipped yet. Supposedly it will be available next month but there is a rumor that this is Vaporware and will never make it to market! I hope that that isn't true because I really think this is the ticket for me. So I will be watching, waiting and hoping for it to show up on my door step!!!
