Summary: Nice looking disk, really fast transferring rate as one would expect for USB 3.0, the wrap around cable system is great for carrying the disk around but it would be great if it also came with a much longer 3.0 USB cable since some desktop computers do not have 3.0 USB port in the front. In general one of the best data storage options that meets with price, looks and portability specifications.
Summary: This thing worked flawlessly for me on a recent trip to very dusty Africa where I used it nightly for backing up mass quantities of photos. The on-board stowage of the chord is GREAT. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is because I also had along a similar spec hard drive made by Lacie (the orange and silver one), which I'd say just felt more reliable: the casing on the Lacie feels rock solid, whereas this one feels like it is just snapped onto the outside of an...
Summary: I used this for movie and tv shows overseas. I was able to put over 700 Movies, over 15 season seasons of TV shows, as well as music and other games and files. Downloads fast with the 3.0 usb.
Summary: Durable, compact, and with the assurance that if I ever do find myself in 'battle zone' conditions, at least my data will be safe... Only complaint, is that there's no optional external power, meaning tablet users may need to accessorize appropriately.
Summary: Good size. The rubber coating is nice. May help save the hard drive from random spin failure. The rubber casing also holds the cord so it stays in one nice piece. Con: The functioning light is not bright enough. Hard to tell when the hard drive is working in medium to bright light.
Summary: Product arrived on time, in good condition to my porch. It is as advertised and the colors are very nicely done. The black in the picture is actually more of a carbon fiber look. My only concern/complaint is, as others have stated, the USB cord included with the product. The cord is very stiff which makes it difficults to position the HD and I wonder how long the built in holder will last.
Summary: I use this drive mostly for virtual machines. Everything I've used it for has been flawless. The USB 3.0 speeds are a huge bonus here and the cons I mentioned above are not a deal breaker for the price you pay.
Pros: Speedy when running with USB 3.0 -- Durable -- Good Price -- Standard external HDD with usb 3 that gets the job done.
Cons: Only a couple. The cord that it comes with is a kind of short. The port that the cord connects to is kind of odd. Almost like it doesn't connect all the way. I had to cut off the rubber flap that covers the port hole because the flap would nudge the cord enough to almost push it out of the port.
