Simple and fast back up

Summary: This Data unit is my first external hard drive. Although it does require plugging into an electrical outlet, I found the unit to be fast and easy to use the first time. Everything came preloaded and set up was about a minute. 15 minutes after opening the box, I had backed up all the photos (2000+) and videos (50+) in addition to my personal documents. Great buy!
Summary: This is the second 3.0 USB portable hard drive I have purchased. Like everything I shop for, price is always a consideration. And the price on this one is right. Amazing how fast these 3.0 USB drives are. I do event videography and with the demand for HD video, I am now working with huge files. Larger than I ever thought possible just a couple years ago. If you have LOTS of information that meeds to be backed up to or stored on a seperate drive 3.0 USB is a must.
Summary: Backs up my files quickly and is super easy to use. HOWEVER, when a person thinks PORTABLE the image is that they can take it anywhere that they take a laptop. This harddrive needs to be plugged into an electrical outlet in order for it to be used. My husband purchased this for use in Iraq yes he has an outlet but his power is "sketchy" and can't support more than a couple electrical items.
Summary: I bought 2 of these units 1 year ago and used it about 2 times to back up my laptop. I tried to turn it on today and and both are dead. One was stored in a fire proof safe and the other by my laptop. The only time I used them was when I needed to backup my laptop. They were not kept "ON" 24/7 so I don't understand how they could be dead. I'm avoiding this brand from now on. I actually like ADATA and used their memory cards and blank DVDs before. But now I'm avoiding it.
Summary: After much research I decided to buy this hard drive about a year ago. It is super fast, even on the USB 2.0, USB 3.0 speeds are ridiculous! I have had no problems what-so-ever running on Windows Vista, Windows 7, Mac, and even Ubuntu. I had never heard of Adata previous to this purchase, I will definitely buy another one once this one is filled up.
Summary: I have one of these, I have had one for the last year, 1 whole year and well what can I say. First off it is classed as portable, which it is, yes really it is, but you have to lug a power supply about along with a USB3 cable, so portability is a little iffy. Size wise, it is about the size of a thick paperback (think Stephen King, 'The Stand' thickness), so it in't the smallest drive on the market.
