Summary: I would probably give this a higher rating, but I have only had this for a few weeks. Still, I was very happy with the ease of set-up. I am using this as additional storage for my DishNetwork receiver DVR and so far everything is working fine. The drive was easy to set-up, and after a short reformat by the Dish receiver I was able to back-up several movies and tv shows.
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Setup, Easy to use, Quiet
Summary: Well I needed an affordable backup for all my important files and this fits the bill perfectly. Plugs right in and was recognized instantly. Has a nice power switch so I can always leave it plugged in but I can turn it on only when I need to use it. Cant pass up the nice design either. It looks cool and has a nice under light to show when its on. Does pick up fingerprints with the shiny finish, but really who cares.
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Setup, High Capacity, Portable, Quiet
