"Expensive, Fast hard drive with MAJOR COOLING PROBLEM"

Candyman87, CNET
27 November 2009
  • Pros: It works well - it does what it should: Stores lots of stuff Thre connection options: either USB 2.0, FireWire (400 or 800) or eSata Seems to be resistant against bumps although it doesn't look like it and seems to get scratched easily.
  • Cons: Expensive Device gets really hot. Seems to have some cooling issue. That worries me... Connection ports (when not used) have no protection against dust or liquid.

Some Tech Info

Timothy, Amazon

  • Summary: September 18, 2009 Other reviews you can read about how pretty the drive is, I just want to let people know that it is a solid performer. Drive was purchased from a retail outlet and formatted to NTFS for Windows through Disk management in XP (takes a few hours) in this time, the max operating temperature of 61 degrees Celsius was reached (141.8 Fahrenheit) which is completely normal, and not as hot as other's.

"Not good for daisy chaining"

ttrtilley--2008, CNET
25 June 2009
  • Pros: There is no useless power cord that needs to be discarded. It looks thinner than OWC drives which are fat and hot.
  • Cons: It should have 2 firewire 800 ports and zero firewire 400 ports. Firewire 800 ports are downward compatible with firewire 400.
