Summary: I have multiple backup drives to protect over 30 years of photos, and usually take one with me if I'm gone for a few days, just in case of a fire at home. Sometimes I forget to take one. With this fireproof, waterproof hard drive, I feel like I have a last line of defense in case of disaster. Operates quietly, was easily recognized on my WinXP. After 3 months, so far so good. I'd purchase another.
Summary: I bought this to back up all of company's data. This storage device is on the lowest floor so I wanted some protection from damage in the event of a disaster. It has worked seamlessly in the background backing up all of my files. I love the protection it gives. I had a couple of questions regarding warranty length and the CEO himself replied. I like that kind of customer service.
Summary: Received this drive and it was very well packaged as it is quite heavy. Easy enough to hookup. Just connect the USB cable and the power cable. Turn unit on and the PC automatically discovered it. I was copying back file to it in no time. Only downside that I could find is that the power cable can become unplugged very easily from the back of the unit if you have to move it around. This happened to me as I was situating the drive in my rack.
Pros: very well built good looking drive easy connection
Cons: wish it didn't have an external power adapter
Summary: This external hard drive back-up is phenomenal - plug-and-play simplicity, no software or drivers to download and mess around with, very easy to use, and it's great peace of mind. We have a network external hard-drive as our primary back-up, but having a disaster proof back-up for everything is nice. It's pretty fast, it looks great (although it is a bit heavier than I expected), and most importantly, it holds a ton of data.
Pros: fast write speeds disaster proof very easy to set up and use immediately
Summary: I use this storage drive for my onsite backup. This not so little guy is solidly built. It is also not intended to be mobile (although it can be) as it can be secured. If you need an extra level (or two) of security from some type of disaster- you will want to consider this bad puppy!
Pros: easy setup-plug and play secure casing mountable
