Mine broke less than 2 days from purchase!

T. Haller "REM fan!", Amazon
31 January 2011
  • Summary: I bought the hard drive because it was on sale. I backed up my home movies the first night and then the second night hooked it up to back up some more files. The USB port on the machine snapped off completely dislocating it from the machine. I didn't even have it for 2 days! I contacted the company who wrote back "We are baffled by this occurance....Please bring it back to the store you bought it from to retrieve the files." Wow! What great customer support!

"Dosn't work"

scottyxlr8, CNET
12 August 2010
  • Pros: Swirling lights
  • Cons: When it goes to sleep, it won't wake up. Sometimes it comes 'back to life' after leaving it uplugged for a few days. Also, tech support is difficult to obtain and finger-pointing.

Short life expectancy

S. Kalso, Amazon
10 May 2010
  • 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.

  • Pros: Worked ok for some time. Acceptable transfer speeds
