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

Andre L. Bell "Consultant & Copywriter", Amazon
11 November 2014
  • 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.

Great for School or Work

Amanda "College Student", Amazon

  • 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.

SmartDisk FireLite Hard Drive

Overstock
27 December 2007
  • 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.

Firelite with no Firewire!

Albert Reingewirtz "Albert Reingewirtz", Amazon
4 October 2007
  • 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

Peter Coptor "Peter", Amazon
12 May 2007
  • 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.

Does the Job

McMonkey's Squirrel, Amazon
17 April 2007
  • Summary: I got this HD as a hand-me-down from my husband and I have never had problems with it. It's a bit bulky compared to today's portables, and the casing shows some significant scratching.

Need better software for backups

Amazon
24 February 2006
  • 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.

Quality Product

Amesy, Amazon
20 August 2005
  • 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. ..

Nice little backup unit

Roland Grefer, Amazon
24 March 2005
  • 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.
