Summary: So far so good. I reformatted from Fat to NTFS 4K it took close to 4 hours on USB2. I was disappointed by the look and feel of the advertised solid aluminum, I was expecting much better material.
Summary: The drive arrived promply and as advertised. It seems to be a fairly standard 2.5 drive + enclosure. It was perfectly plug and play. The one "issue" for me was the drive was formatted as fat32; in order to use it as a windows backup drive it needed to be re-formatted as an NTFS drive.
