"Expensive, Fast hard drive with MAJOR COOLING PROBLEM"
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.
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.
