STAY AWAY!!!

Anonymous, Newegg
27 December 2013
  • Pros: Looks Cool. LOves how the USB cable wraps around the rubber casing.
  • Cons: Drive gave trouble out of the box. Very picky on which PCs to perform in USB 3 mode. Few PCs wouldn't even see the drive or it would connect6 and dosconnect all the time. Works fine on these PCs in USB 2 mode though, pointless. Cable connection is VERY LOOSE as mentioned by many reviewers. I have to like not even touch it once a connection is made, lest it loses the connection with the PC and me having to battle all over to get it working. This does NOT happen with my...

*flush*

Daniel S., Newegg
19 January 2013
  • Summary: I am going to backup my things on it once then toss it in a drawer somewhere, as it is patently unfit for use as a portable hard drive.
  • Pros: It's cute.
  • Cons: Totally unreliable connection. This drive frequently dismounts without warning, much to the dismay of TrueCrypt. The problem occurs when the drive is laid flat on a stable surface, making it almost useless when traveling with a laptop. Trying to reposition the cable can cause the drive to mount and dismount several times in succession before it finally hooks up.

Gets the job done

Wade H., Newegg
28 December 2012
  • Pros: Have used this daily for 6 months now. The drive itself isn't fast however I am transferring through USB 2.0. I don't expect this drive to be blazing fast but it has not let me down yet.
  • Cons: Like other posts, the usb port on the drive seems to be flimsy but I am assuming this is done to prevent damaging the internal connection. If you are aware of this, it is as simple as being careful when plugging/unplugging the drive. I have not encountered a situation where I would like a longer cord.

  • Pros: The drive transfers at a decent speed, holds many files, very durable.
  • Cons: The way the cable attaches to the drive itself is absolutely horrible. It comes out on its own and I find myself having to keep reconnecting it.
