Summary: I was very optimistic about this drive when I bought it. I had plans to transfer videos to the drive to unclutter my computer, but I can hardly watch anything before it starts giving me several errors.
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.
Summary: Mine failed within less than a year. I contacted tech support and they were willing to replace the drive and even recover what they could from it for free; however, that process required sending it to Taiwan and back which can take up to 3 months.
Summary: I've had this drive for a little over a year and has recently stopped backing up. My computer recognizes the drive, but cannot back up to it, and automatically disconnects after a while, giving me the "please properly eject.
Summary: Greatly disappointed with part of this product. The drive itself appears to be what Transcend claims. The reason for the below average rating is the lack of the USB "Y" cable for USB 2.0 use as describe in the manual and indicated on the box.

Summary: I use it to back up my data and hence I very frequently use it. Yet every time I try to retrieve some document I will have bad sector or bad read errors. Basically bad sector or whatever it is is plaguing the drive even though it is kept in a safe and cold environment of my office desk.
