Works OK for local backups

Happy_in_AZ, Staples

  • Excerpt: I connected this product to the USB port on my router to use as a backup device for my connected computers. I then loaded the backup program from the device to one of the computers but the program apparently only works if the device is directly connected to the computer you want to back up. The paid version of the program allows you to use it the way I wanted. So, I used a different backup program which worked OK.Otherwise, the product performed as advertised.

User Review

TheBigLibrarian, Walmart

  • Summary: I'm still trying to make up my mind about this drive. It seems to work well but there are so many regular updates that it seems to have slowed my computer down. I mean, how many upgrades does the device need to operate correctly. It took nearly 7 hours to backup the files on my computer the other day, which I felt was a bit on the extreme side time-wise.

Nice Portable Hard Drive

Tom C., Staples
23 January 2015
  • Excerpt: This is my 2nd one, because I liked the 1st one so much. The first was shipped to store (well packed). This one was shipped to home (shipping box was 8 times bigger than product and NO protection. Product was rattling around in the box.) Not a good way to ship a hard drive. The drive seems to be OK though. I took 1 star off for shipping.

  • Excerpt: We were asked to get this as a Christmas gift. The gift receiver was happy with our purchase. As I don't know much about computers, this item was not something I would have gotten as a gift, however in talking with family member it appears to be adequate for their needs in clearing their computer of unwanted or lesser used items.I'm sure that if for some reason this item does not do the job it is designed to do that we will surely hear about it in the near future.I can't...
