Summary: I got the 750 GB one, and thats alot of space. Came in great condition, no problems so far and arrived fast. The case it comes with is also great, but the only problem is there isnt room for the cord to fit in there as well. But thats not something that bothers me, i just leave it plugged into the hard drive and wrap the cord around it.
Summary: This hard drive worked fine for USB 2.0, but does not work for USB 3.0. I am running Win7 SP1. The USB 3.0 port works fine for two other drives, so I am assuming the USB 3.0 port is fine and it is a problem with either the drive or the connecting cable.
Summary: My husband purchased this external hard drive for me so I can store my Creative Memories Memory Manager and Storybook software and digital photos all in ne place without clogging up my laptop memory. Bonus-it's purple!
Summary: I have an older computer with Windows XP but with Service Pack 3 installed. I also have a Toshiba Netbook with Windows XP SP3. I wasn't sure if my computers could handle a terabyte portable hard drive or that my netbook would be powerful enough to handle a portable drive that only connected to one USB port. I have an older portable drive, but it requires being plugged in to two USB ports to run on my laptop. This one runs well on both using only one of my USB ports.
Summary: I got this for my girlfriend to use on her macbook air. I loaded it up with some media and the transfer rate was great on my USB2 computer (better on her USB3 ports). Its only been a few weeks, but I'll be sure to update if it ever fails. The color is amazing and it feels durable. The little case is great since she will keep it in a bag and it will protect it a bit, but there is no spot to hook the USB cable to the case.
Summary: I could not get this hard drive to work. It was a birthday present from my husband, he even paid more for a Saturday delivery so it would be here for my birthday. We ended up returning this and I bought a different brand from Wal-Mart because he didn't want to re-order and wait for shipping so close to a holiday.
Summary: I purchased to backup and transfer files between my systems. This does not install properly on mw XP system. I can get it installed on my Windows 7 systems OK but it does not answer the needs I had for data transfer and backup.
Summary: Very nice. Love the color and the quietness. Please note the cord is only about 23" and in my case would not reach from my tower under the desk to the desktop, so I had to buy a new cord. As stated in other reviews, the case is ok, but needs a cord pocket. Over all I am very pleased. I bought one size up from what I thought I needed, I can recommend that, you won't be sorry.
