Excerpt: don't even bother with any other mobile drive -they mostly have plastic covers and are not well made-this one is a propper-real mckoy well made,with a metal casing(A RARITY)-buY this and you won't regret it-and support a good manufacturer too! i now have several,and now i don't ever buy powered drives any more- a+++++++++++++ from me!
Pros: Durable, Fast Connectivity, Quiet, Reliable, Versatile
Summary: The main reason I paid premium for this product because it is virtually noiseless. I also have identical model drive with 1TB capacity that is 3 months old. So far, both drives work well. And these are very good-looking drives. You can buy other brands that would be just as reliable and would cost 50-60% less, but you would not get a noiseless drive and nice looks.
