Summary: This didn't work at all! I bought it because my computer crashed and needed to be backed up before everything got erased off of it. It backed up but seemed iffy. I went and got my computer fixed and everything got erased off of it so I needed to put all my files back onto it from my external hard drive.
Summary: The drive is fine and works fast until it starts falling apart. I had the drive for 6 months until it started giving error messages and i could not access it. Then it wanted me to reformat it. Took it too the local computer store and it was diagnosed as a bad drive( bad sectors etc. Lost important data on the drive we will see if Buffalo stands by it.
Summary: I've had this hard drive for about 6 months now. I haven't had any problems with it so far. The speed on file transfers is pretty fast, which surprised me considering the price. I just wanted something portable so that when I go on vacations or work trips, I could have access to my music and movies without having to worry about which laptop I'm bringing. It's very small, very thin, and very light. I bought an AmazonBasics hard case for this and it fits perfectly inside.
