Summary: Loud beyond comprehension. For some unexplained reason, many manufacturers pay seemingly no attention to how noisy their devices are. I really wanted to like this drive. It just leads me to believe that they don't actually use or really test their own devices in real world situations. For a hard drive that's meant to sit on your desk, this thing is ridiculous.
Neat looking device, but one hard disk failure (with data loss) so far doesn't bode well

Summary: This drive is well made. It looks great, although to the touch, it's a little disappointing/plasticky with sharp edges. Nevertheless does have a little pouch that you can keep it in; if that floats your boat. People have mentioned on here about "fingerprints", but in all honesty I couldn't care less about marks. What I do care about, though, isn't cosmetics, it's more the security of my data.
