Great value and easy to use

  • Summary: So far so good. I'm using this to store data for my dissertation. I have a Mac, but set-up was very easy. I feel that my data is very secure with this external drive. It is also small enough that it is portable.

Not Truly Bootable!!

Steven Bee "sbrown", Amazon

  • Summary: It's super fast, and probably a great drive for a general-purpose user, but contrary to the advertised features, the device is not useful as a boot device for installing an operating system.

No help from customer service

  • Summary: I purchased two of these. I followed the setup directions exactly and could not get either to work. Called customer service and they were unwilling to help over the phone. I was told to reset the drives. They would not help with that either.

Excellent choice for securing data and meeting compliance concerns

  • Summary: I am an IT contractor who services clients in the healthcare sector. With the advent of HIPAA, my clients had to come up to present day standards in most areas and surpass them in others. Backups had to be encrypted if they were taken off-site.

Good hardware encryption for the money

Mikey "mikasaurus", Amazon
15 March 2015
  • Summary: Very easy to set up and very secure using encryption hardware. Has the option to disable itself on a brute force attack by at first, making it more trouble than it's worth, then in the end, locks the drive and deletes the contents. Easy to set up admin and up to 4 users.

Great for Linux!

symbolic, Amazon
28 February 2015
  • Summary: This is a fantastic product -- just what I was looking for. Specifically, not only does it run on Linux but it can be partitioned into at least 4 partitions and those can be any filesystem you want that is supported on Linux.

Great while it lasted

dave s., Newegg
16 February 2015
  • Pros: Great transfer rate, solid compact design. Well documented.
  • Cons: Would convert files to directories and would not open. ex: Document.doc is a file, the hard drive would only recognize it as a directory, thus it would not open it. This happened to quite a few files over the course of a year. Less than a year later, it is dying.
