Summary: unfortunately it doesn't work with my video game counsel :(. but however i work very good for storage thus far and it will be a great and easy way of transferring my personal files when i upgrade my pc, Thank you :)
Summary: I Bought it by mistake, also it bring a external AC Input cable, not recommended as a portable device. Also I had this hard drive only for 3 month because in my house we had a electrical issue, so the disk was shocked trough the AC Input cable. From that moment I decided never to buy a Hard drive with AC Input cable.
Summary: A complete waste of money. This is trash do not buy or you will regret. I bought one then noticed that it would not allow me to put files on it, giving me a time estimate of 3 hours to transfer a word document. I returned, same proble . I tried to format but it would not let me. One of the worst products I have ever bought. Do not let the price fool you, it is garbage and a complete waste of money. I will never buy hitachi again.
Summary: Dont use this drive if you plan to put files on it. I put my video collection on it and would watch movies and used fairly often. It lasted about 1 year then died. Save your time, sanity, and money and get a better one.

Summary: Although Hitachi makes this hard drive, it's really chintzy. First off, there is no power switch. If you want it off, you've got to just pull the plug out of the back, which isn't great. Second, there are two different finishes offered on this. The first one I got had a nice rubberized finish, that appeared to be non-skid. I say 'appeared' because it skidded its way off of a glass desk and fell to the ground and broke.
