  • Pros: Great transfer speeds, lightweight, nice aesthetics, great amount of storage space, and can take a beating.
  • Cons: None

You wouldn't know it's even there.

  • Summary: Perfect. Compact almost like a pack of cigarettes, running silently behind my computer. One word of caution. Do not run it though a dub, even 3.0. Connect it directly to a USB on computer.

Very Resilient!

  • 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.
  • Cons: None.

It doesn't work well with my Acer, Windows 8.

Kyonna, Amazon
4 November 2014
  • 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.
