Great and reliable drive
3 April 2013
Summary: I have been using this for 3 years now. It never failed and never gave me any errors. I was not using it extensively, but it had it's portion of load. I've carried this drive with me in a lot of trips and used it with a variety of OS's and it was and is always working.
Summary: I got this drive as a tote around for Video and Photos. I'm both a Mac and PC user so my insight is unique on this product. First thing I noted after opening the package is the small size and weight of this drive. With the curved lightweight body you could easily slip this into a hip pocket.
Summary: Bought this to back up 13 years of business files and all my music and pictures. No set-up....just plug and play. Back up speed was incredibly fast. Got it at Costco for $39....can't beat the value.
Summary: I have a 1tb external that is not easily moved around because you need a power for the computer and then probably something else and it is inconvenient to plus it in. I ended up with a bunch of these and I decided to keep one, it works well.
