Perfect Backup HDD

Summary: Have personal and business stuff on mine and still has PLENTY of room for more. Really love the light weight feel of it and I have abused mine over the years and thing is still like brand new.
Pros: Great transfer speeds, lightweight, nice aesthetics, great amount of storage space, and can take a beating.
Pros: I've dropped this more than once from my desk to the wood floor and it still has no bad sectors. I also appreciate the reusable USB 3.0 to HD SATA adapter. I use this to interface with my other drives when I need to do service work.
Summary: Bought two as external backups for family photos. Lesson 1-Hard drives fail Lesson 2-Back up your data onto multiple drives At least the data is safe on the computer and a spare external drive
Summary: Well, first off, this device only has 465GB on it, not 500GB. So I've been cheated out of 35GB. Also I have an Acer laptop with Windows 8, and even though it connects with no problem, I have trouble whenever I right click on it or in it for options. The window just stops responding then closes.
