Summary: I brought with great hope because i know baffalo products but after using felt that seagate or toshiba is best in portable HDD this initially run good but later one seen automatically shuting down and moreover OEM says it may be a faulty product. So overall i am null on this product
Summary: I got the 1TB and it made weird sounds when i first plugged it in and only partially recognized. I retried and it seemed to work, but it makes loud tapping sound and transfers choppy and has froze while transferring.
