Gets the job done

Anonymous, Newegg
28 February 2013
  • Summary: 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.
  • 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.

Great Hard Drive

Hunter H., Newegg
10 January 2013
  • Pros: It has a slot that the connection cable fits firmly into. And the rubber exterior keeps it from sliding around
  • Cons: The connection of the cable to the hard drive is a little odd. But it still works great. Don't let that keep you from getting it!

Good buy

Timothy A., Newegg

  • Pros: USB 3.0 is fast. Have dropped a few times and still works fine. USB powered is a big plus, never have to carry a power cable with you.
  • Cons: None that I can think of

seems to do the job

Ms. V. Maria, Amazon
13 December 2013
  • Summary: robust HD which seems to do the job setting it up with my mac was not so easy (hens 4 stars) I followed the instruction but still had problems so I had to have technical help from a friend who dis something different from the instructions - this may be a apple difference so maybe its easier to set up for PC ? Having said all that I went ahead and got a second one as I do like it once it was all set up to work.

Seem's to be just as required!

Mr. R. Morris, Amazon
16 October 2013
  • Summary: I cannot say for certain, but this external seems to be as described. Obviously I cannot test it by repeatedly dropping it over and over, or submerging it in liquid as I am not that rich!! All that I can say is that it feels like it's got more protection than a regular external hard drive, thus you have a little more peace of mind.

Good but a couple of downers!

James, Amazon
16 May 2013
  • Summary: I have only given four stars for the following reasons: 1 - As others have said, the rubber cover is not fully attached around USB port 2 - For me USB cable is on the short side, I use this for backing up data files on my PC, with the hard drive on the top of the (desktop) PC the cable just about reaches the back USB port with the hard drive at an angle, not laying flat! If Im honest these are niggle little points, over all it is good value for money!
