  • Summary: I did not use this drive for any heavy back work at all. The last time I had it out it was making a clicking noise.I should have done a full backup at that point. Today I turned it on and you could feel the disc platters screeching to a halt. Dead.

Caution! do not use this product

Robert Crawford, Amazon

  • Summary: Due to the incredibly poor construction quality, it is not only possible, it is easy, to insert the fire-wire cable in upside down. Properly constructed devices that conform to standards do not present this risk. This device can destroy other computer equipment.
