Not very sturdy for portable

B. Babb "kites0852", Amazon
10 March 2008
  • Summary: I had two of these and they worked well. At the time I was travelling internationally and needed files that I could carry reliably. However, the problem began when I was at my own office. The drive fell approximately 18 inches to the carpeted floor while connected. After that it ceased working.

Mac G4 laptop doesn't provide enough power thru USB

Michael "macmike", Amazon

  • Summary: I've used a 40G Smart disk with Firewire for several years and it works great. I needed a larger drive for my music collection and since I only have one FW port on my Mac G4 laptop I got this USB model. It just spins and chirps because it doesn't have enough power through the USB port.

Be Careful but will work well if you are

  • Summary: I have a 40 gig and an 80 gig of this particular device. Both are USB models. I would like Firewire, but my laptop does not have Firewire access so I need something that will work between the two without extra equipment. See my review of the problems with the 40 gig.

SmartDisk FWFL80 80GB Firelite 2.5" Firewire External Hard Drive

Clive Cheung, Amazon
24 March 2005
  • Summary: Nice drive. Problem when daisy chain two drive together. XP will lose connection with the two drives. I guess it draw too much power and the firewire can't handle it. As a result, the drives shut themselves down.
