Summary: About two years ago, I purchased two of these units at the same time. They have been used primarily for periodic backup storage and were never used for any kind of day-to-day work.

Summary: transferring 2.8 tb in 6 hours and thirty minutes is a step up from my other external drive.

Excerpt: This unit is twice as small as my Lacie 1TB that I purchased 2 years ago and a million times faster. Very quiet. I can barely hear it compared to my Lacie's. So far it is a good unit especially for the price. Can't really beat it.
Pros: Attractive Design, Compact, Easy To Set Up, Easy to use, Fast, High Capacity, Quiet
