Summary: I have owned a series of external drives over the years. (As my data amount increases, I need more storage.) Among all of the drives I've owned, I've never had one die on me. This drive lasted less than two years and then died, taking my precious data with it. (Thank the maker for Time Machine.
Summary: Installation was as simple as plugging in the drive and hooking up a USB cable. After about 30 seconds my drive was ready to use. After I installed the included TruboBooster software, transferring files was blazingly fast. I transfered 32gb in a matter of minutes.

9 January 2015
Summary: i write very few reviews, but this item requires a warning. This Buffalo external hard drive failed fatally at 13 months. it has been problematic for the past 2 to 3 months only connecting intermittently. now it spins up, but won't connect to my laptop, EVER. BELIEVE THOSE NEGATIVE REPORTS, PEOPLE.
Summary: Purchased two units new in August 2013. One unit failed in the first few months of operation and the other unit failed several months after the first. Both were replaced by the factory in an easy process. Then the two replacement units eventually failed in almost the same timeline as the first two.
