Pros: Looks as solid as described in the product description.
Cons: Set up the device as a backup for my system. Each night at 3am, selected directories are backed up automatically. The drive falls asleep/locks up during the backup process. Much corruption is occurring. When I disconnect the drive and re-connect, I have to run a check disk on the drive to repair ...
Summary: Only time will tell if this product is as rugged as advertised. I do not want to find out if it is water proof or water resistant but it is definitely small, well designed and has great capacity (2 TB) for the size and price.? It also houses a convenient short USB 3.0 cable. Great product.

Summary: Very sleek and well designed with the integrated cable, yet robust in its protection. Well worth the cost. It's my first time using a Silicon Power product and I will now recommend this over all the other portable HDs on the market.
Really a military grade hard drive, in the best possible way

Summary: Hands down the best external hard drive I've ever used. They stand up to anything, have never failed on me, are super fast, quiet, cool, and you'll never have to worry about some child-size USB cable that won't stand up to years of use. I will never buy a hard drive from another company again.
Summary: I bought this hard drive after I had an unfortunate accident with another model that cost me hundreds of dollars. Well, I have to say that this hard drive met all my expectations. It is fast, easy to use, and (more importantly) it can take a lot of physical abuse.
Summary: I just purchased mine. So, I have very little to comment on it. I am extremely excited for it though: military specs at this price range affords me a lot of piece of mind that my data will be well protected. It did come with FAT32 File system, which surprised me. But, is not really a negative.

Summary: Good drive. It had this annoying preinstalled program that would launch on its own and kept causing trouble when I would try to unmount the drive. This cleared up once I reformatted the drive. I am glad I figured this out before I put any sensitive information on the drive.
Durable, I've already banged it up a bunch of times and it still works.

Summary: Works well. As others have noted I reformatted mine for larger file transfers and quicker transfer speeds. I like the mini USB cable that fits in the side of the drive. It also has a larger USB cable that comes with it.
Summary: I love this drive, in fact, I have a few of them. They are rugged, fast, and easy to travel with. They fire right up on a PC or a MAC, they are not full of bloatware and junk, and they are well supported. There is no reason to buy any other drive. Ever.
