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: 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.
Summary: The drive is fast, it's USB 3 and is considerably faster than the USB 2.0 drives I've used. It's a little more expensive than other 1TB drives but if it truly is military grade durability it will be well worth it if dropped. I have not dropped it... yet. The only fault I have so far with it, is it comes with a USB cable that is held in a grove wrapped around the drive. So far so good. This cable is very rigid and stiff.
Summary: I don't buy portable drives for blazing speed and I don't have a USB 3.0 interface to really test performance. But my 500G Western Digital was making awful knocking sounds after spending the last 2 years at the bottom of my Laptop case. If these drives can stand up to the pounding they'll be worth their weight.
Pros: Rugged, reasonably fast
Cons: Windows 7 constantly wants to scan for errors. Manufacturer not all that forthcoming with specs.
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.
