Summary: I decided to purchase a pair of these devices to make my backup media more convenient to access. One is for my finances and the other is for entertainment. What I have learned, so far, is that the connection allows for a faster transfer of information.
Great little HDD for backups. USB powered is a plus!

Summary: I bought 2 and love these. I store photos on them as backups to my online backups. 2TB drives for the price, hard to beat. Love the fact that they're USB powered. Small and compact, worked right out of the box. Came with a bit of software that I didn't want, just removed that.

Summary: This storage piece works fine as long as you want to move items one at a time to it. It does not work for backing up my entire iMac, which is what I ordered it for. I'm keeping it as an alternate backup mechanism, but it really has no advantages for me over a flash drive.
Summary: I purchased this drive back in April 2014. I use it to back up very large folders of photos. I also back up the raw video files I shoot, as well as video projects in progress. Those back-ups can be from 1 gb to 30 gb or more. It has performed flawlessly.
