"2 GB version fails to mount when only a few months old."
10 May 2013
Pros: There are no PROS. This is the worst tech product I have every purchased or been given. I suggest a new name: SimplyALemon.
Cons: This is the ultimate kleenex drive, use it briefly and throw it away before you get really mad. It there is not a class action against this product, it would be only because there is no backing. In today's tech industry there is no excuse.
"Lost THOUSANDS of pictures and music. DON'T BUY!!"
8 July 2011
Pros: Worked well for the first few months I had it, then connecting to computer began to get iffy. Eventually it just never connected again -- status light comes on, but otherwise the drive is dead.
Cons: EVERYTHING. What a piece of utter junk. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT, I guarantee it's not worth it. Simpletech doesn't even have a website!!!! Help is nonexistent. I lost thousands of priceless pictures, and hundreds of dollars worth of music. Utterly dissapp
Summary: I've had my little hard drive for just over a year and it suddenly stopped working. Nothing really extreme in my lifestyle either - it was just sitting in my top desk drawer and decided to surprise me one day by never working again. I would never even consider taking one of these even if I were paid to, because you'll only lose all of your valuable information with it.
Summary: I bought this just a little over a year ago. Installation is simple, use is very simple, but 14 months into it, only being used 4 times and it doesn't operate anymore. All my data is trapped inside this hard drive I can no longer access. Comments online have said similar things. I wish I would have seen that sooner. A device that is stored safely in a cupboard and used 4 times in 14 months shouldn't just stop working. Avoid.
Summary: I've had this drive for a year and a half. It was easy to hook up and use. However, I noticed that from time to time my computer wouldn't detect it. I would do a restart and it would start working again. Over the past couple of weeks I noticed backup failures but I blamed it on the computer, my bad, I know now it was the drive. Yesterday I went to check files on it and the computer didn't show the drive.
Summary: The nice thing about an additional hard drive, especially one with such a large capacity, is that all the extra documents, photos, videos, and music files on your computer have a place call home with easy access. Immediately, I began using my SimpleDrive to do just that. Fast, easy, and efficient to use, I was a happy individual, clearing up space and organizing a decade of digital creating, collecting, and memories.
