Not as Rock Solid as I expected it to be: failed in 9 months
Paul Croteau, Amazon

Summary: Drive failed after 9 months after moderate use. Fortunately, I was able to recover most (but not all) of my data. I typically use this to back up my work, but was actually using it to move files from one device to another when I got a new desktop.
Summary: It works great on my Windows 8/8.1 laptop without any problems. USB 3.0 speeds are fast, well above 60 MBps, sometimes 70 something. The blue LED indicator is a nice little feature to tell you it's connected.
Summary: Just ordered it then cancelled. I've seen these advertised as having 7200rpm drives, and that's what I searched for on Amazon. But when I'd ordered it I realized it said nothing about it. In fact, one of the reviewers said it had the 5400rpm drive.
Summary: It's a small external drive for simple backup jobs. It's quiet. It has a short usb cord though. You don't need to plug it in as the dual usb cord acts as the power source through the computer.
Summary: These drives are pretty good. I have both the 1TB and the 500GB versions. It uses a single USB plug with an odd looking connector on the drive side. The drive is USB 3.0 but can be used in a USB 2.0 connection. Its really fast when connected to USB 3.0. Pretty mundane when connected to USB 2.0.
Summary: I received this unit today after reading good things about it. The box says there is a Quick Start guide enclosed but there was not. I went to the support website listed for the unit and it was less than helpful. So I tried just playing with the drive.
