Summary: I have used this drive for about 4 weeks now and it is a cool little drive...I have the 500gb. The USB power is excellent and its portability are fantastic. My only gripe about this drive comes in the form of reliability.
Nice External drive, works great. Not crazy about the backup sofware

Summary: This external drive is nicely styled and shaped. Generally around the same dimensions of other portable external drives available. It doesn't come with any cover or carrying case, so you will need to purchase that separately.
Summary: The only two cons that I have are that the backup program that came with the product did not work and I can't get the hard drive to stop running so that I can safely unplug it. I uninstalled the backup program that came with it.
Pros: Small, large capacity, quiet, blue
Cons: It won't stop so that I can unplug it. Backup program.
I could not get customer service to email or call me

Summary: I had an issue with backing up "files and folders" and needed tech support. I went to the web site and it is a joke. I went around in circles trying to get information to help me. I emailed them and expected at least a verification email that they had received my request. Nothing, nada.
Very good, except for the unnecessary stuff inside...

Summary: I'm not quite sure whether I want the automatic backup program to be there at all, but I feel too uncertain to just go ahead and delete all the little files and programs that come inside this storage device.
Summary: I installed this using the built-in software which comes on the drive. After trying it for several days, I decided to stop using the software and using either Windows 7 built-in backup tool or Microsoft Sync Toy 2.0 (for XP machines). But the drive itself is slick and fast. Definitely recommended.
Summary: My only concern is with the way the unit stores the data. I had hoped for more of a click and drag type interface. I use my for music as well as for backup and there is no way I can find, to move songs individually. That is why I purchased the device so I am somewhat disappointed :(
Summary: This is a great drive for the price. Don't expect stunning performance, but rather outstanding portability and 500GB of storage for media and backups. The performance while copying files was actually piss poor, but I didn't expect much. Loses one star for two reasons: 1.
