Summary: The Stream S20 by Silicon Power is a stylish portable hard drive with impressive speeds. In this review, I will highlight the design, speed, and portability of the drive. DESIGN: The drive is very thoughtfully designed. It is purple, and has a small artistic feature on the front which makes it unique. The lines on the drive are great, and really give it a very streamlined look. It definitely has a feminine feel to it in my opinion, so it might not appeal to everyone.
Summary: This external hard drive is light weight, rubberized (so has a nice grip to it), quiet, and best of all, it doesn't require any extra power cords. Just plug it into the USB port and it's powered. I really didn't like the other external hard drives that needed extra power to run since it gets cumbersome with all the wires. This one has a short USB cord that is solid, and it's perfect to just set the hard drive next to the laptop.
Summary: Compact, and perfect for storage! Easy to use and transport and universal. I use it it for storage and document transport between macs and PCs and it is very compatible with various operating systems. It also has a great deal of storage for the price!
Summary: So far has been VERY dependable, works VERY well, and LOOKS AMAZING!! I got this with a hard-shell zip-up PURPLE case that fits this like a GLOVE, and they look like some fancy futuristic fashion statement! I wish ALL portable drives looked this good! Note: About the complaints, there IS a slightly noticeable high-pitched whining noise after about 20 minutes, but if you have music, TV, or a fan nearby, it's not detectable. It's not a deal-breaker either.
