30 August 2011
  • Pros: 1 T space. Nice styling. Rubber band floor bouncer might work, I guess.
  • Cons: USB 3.O eGo 1T Drive is (currently) compatible with OSX 10.4-10.6 only. Also, currently no means to reformat "built in" PC partition for encryption software. Will load the partition as a (CD) drive everytime connected. Irritating. Should be friendlier fo

Great Hard Drive with One Question

str82666, J&R
13 December 2010
  • Summary: This is a great hard drive for backup purposes or music storage. My only question is why does it have both USB 2.0 and 3.0 connections if USB 3.0 is reverse compatible. The 2.0 connection just gets in the way. Other than that I have no complaints about the eGo.
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Compact, Easy To Setup, Easy to use, High Capacity, Quiet

More space in small space

Maori, J&R
18 September 2010
  • Summary: Couldn't really ask for more, when I needed extra space for my laptop this proved to be more than enough. I've now gone for a basic 320 GB to 820 GB thanks to this extra drive. In many ways, it's faster than the laptop and hold everything I could need or want for use anywhere I end up traveling. A good choice if you want just a back-up (clone) or extra space.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast Connectivity, Quiet, Reliable, Versatile

Great external hard drive!

ATP, J&R
26 August 2010
  • Summary: Sometimes it takes a moment for my laptops to realize they are disconnected and that I may eject the external hard drive, but I am almost positive this is an issue with my older laptops, not with this product. I just want to mention this here in case others have experienced this too.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast Connectivity, Quiet, Reliable, Versatile
