Very convenient and durable ext. HD

Summary: I have to say the USB feature that clips right onto the HD is incredibly convenient. I can easily and quickly transfer data onto and off of it through the ext. HD. Not to mention, I've been using mine for 5 years now and it still works like a charm! Durable and must have.
Summary: First off, I fell in love with the design. It's very easy on the eyes and being a girl who loves pretty things, its a big plus! I store all my pictures & videos on it and it leaves my computer's memory free. I don't have to worry about losing any of my pictures or documents if my computer does crash unexpectedly (happened to me once already). This device does not take up much space, its only about 6 inches wide.
Summary: The built-in backup software and user interface cannot be uninstalled or disabled on a Windows system and prevent the drive from functioning as a standard USB hard drive. Tends to keep my computer from booting successfully if it's connected - it somehow manages to keep setting itself higher in the boot priority list, to where the computer tries to boot from it instead of the internal hard drive.
Summary: It simply works. I'm a designer who uses large files and back up regularly. This is my 5th hard drive and files transfer fine. Though it would have been nice to have Firewire for speed, but for the price I paid it was on par with other USB 2.0 drives. I got it on sale somewhere else. The size of the drive is smaller than the ones I've seen, looks quite nice and the small drive attached to the front was pretty cool.
Summary: I love this hard drive it was easy to use with my MAC and PC systems. I have no complaints and it offers me the abundant space I was looking for since I work in digital media and I am always saving large file formats and raw file formats. It has plenty of space for my personal media files such as photos, music, and work documents; I still have plenty of space to back up all my computers and art files. Coolest hard drive I have purchased as of yet.
Summary: I am very happy with this purchase. With the prices of Hard drive going up with the flooding I wanted to get a hard drive before things got worst. This was a great price for a 2TB and it works floor less. I did not use the included software because I really need it for raw data storage but I do like the 4gb flash drive that comes with it as an added bonus.
Great storage solution, just wish it was more than just USB 2.

Summary: I got one of these months ago and was thrilled by it. Great capacity (2TBs), nice looking, awesome features (4GB flash drive included which syncs to HDD via included pre-installed LifeStudio software that I never use LOL), and the only thing I thought could be better was that it was limited to USB2. Hell, it was USB A to mini USB. Now, normally that wouldn't be a big deal, ie day to day transfer.
