Limited space...slow speed...rugged...long-lasting life.

Summary: I've used this drive for backups of critical files and as a temporary drive for creating ISOs prior to making bootable USB recovery tools (ex: SARDU etc) when doing remote tech work. Sometimes creating ISOs to a separate drive is more reliable than doing so on same drive as the source files reside.
Summary: This is a great portable hard drive. I love that it has powered ports, so you can carry it with you when you move from computer to computer and not have to worry about carrying a power cord. I use this every day as my flash drive.
Summary: User friendly and easy to maneuver. Seems to be a great deal financially for the amount of storage it offers. Not sure about the life span or reliability of this product but you take your chances on any external storage device.
Summary: I own a few Smartdisk HD's. I bought this drive expecting it to have a firwire port like all firewire HD's. It doesn't. Other than that it is a great HD with only a USB 2 port and a great deal that is hard to beat.
Good external HDD, but the price is high, and the power adapter is needed for laptops

Summary: I've got the drive for about 10 days but at the first day I realized that I have to spend more $$ on the power adapter since my laptop only has 1 4-pin 1394 port. You don't need the power adapter if you have 6-pin 1394 port.
Summary: If you buy a fine extern hard drive disk for backups, and this is the most frequent way to use a extern hard disk, you expect the hardware were accompanied with friendly software. Well this is not the case of the Fire Lite 2.0 USBFLB40.
Summary: I've had the FireLite just over a month now and so far it's been great...The FireLite is super small (less than 1/2" thick, ~5" long, and ~3" wide), making it great for travelling. Setup of the device was simple--just plug and play. ..
Summary: Its small form factor makes this USB-powered 2.5 inch hard drive an excellent travel companion. If your laptop provides (sufficiently) powered USB ports, you will not need an optional separate power supply for the drive.
