Summary: The drive works well so far, the only issue I have is with the cable. Sometimes if I just move a little bit the cable while it is plugged in, the HDD will disconnect itself from the OS, while still being physically connected.
Pros: Was cheap on sale, Usb 3.0/2.0
Cons: Either the usb cable or the plug seems loose
Cons: Case looks good but made of cheap plastic. drive is already having problems being recognized by windows 7at start. I have to unplug it then plug it back in. I have an identical drive with 750gbs that does the same thing. it was fine for the first few days. I have reservations about putting anything important on them. I just use them for steam games. Hope they last.
Advertised as 500GB, but you really only get 465 GB

Summary: The product functions fine, and although I'm sure there's some technical reason for this difference between the advertisement (labeled on Amazon and the product box) and the actual space available... but it's just wrong in my opinion to advertise 500 GBs when you can only actually use 465 GB, plain and simple. Disappointed.
