Summary: This drive worked well for the first 6 months then began to dysfunction. No computer will recognize it when it gets into this weird mode and I had to wait and keep trying again and again, shutting down and signing off, etc., and then it finally worked again. Also, it CORRUPTED many files, both text and images, when I opened them months later. Their "customer service" is now non-existent and you can't reach anyone if you have any problems or questions.
Summary: Bought this drive for my wife's mac to transfer back and forth from work to the home computer. Was looking for something rugged as she travels via bus and bike to work. The drive lasted about a month of use before it gave the telltale click click click of a failed drive, no longer recognized. Going through the RMA process now, which was fairly easy through their website.
Summary: I purchased this to store all of my pictures from my old PC (wanted to get rid of it) and on my Mac. It didn't come with any directions at all and I still haven't figured it all out but still trying. Just frustrating since it said it was an easy plug in for both computers and it really isn't. Maybe I'm doing something wrong but I honestly don't think I am.
Summary: Trying to use these as Timemachine drives for Apple computers. Sometimes they are recognized and sometime not. Pretty random. This happens on two Apple machines. Very disappointing. Emailed Transcend, waiting for reply. Don't buy for Apple.
Summary: Honestly, I was terrified when I was two separate USB cables coming out of the box. I prefer minimalism, and I was okay with one USB cable with two heads (in earlier versions), rather than two separate ones. What if I loose one of them? Also, I work in an environment where I have to constantly plug and unplug the drive, and I am a bit confused which of the cable I have to unplug first, so that the drive would spin down correctly. I'm hearing "power failure" sounds.
Summary: Good I feel transfer is normal floats between 10 ~ 21 mbps
If your copying a large file assume 4.7gb or some thing even though you have space it says source file is large enough to fit destination. Unplug and re plug copy works.
Need to format to NTFS first time. Speed was low before format .
