Summary: I have 2 other externals by Transcend (all purchased on Amazon). I work in graphics & project folders can get deep. My 1st Transcend (orange) is my fav & still works flawlessly. I got the green 1 as a backup & it has a different plug to connect to the HD. This wasn't good bc I had to make sure I keep up with both cords in transport (as though I don't have enough stuff in my "designer's bag'). Anyway, this drive has the same connector as the green one.
Summary: I use this mainly to hold TV Recordings, and a few documents so that I can replay them all on my laptop when out and about, or on holiday. It comes with a suite of software, all of which means nothing to me as all I need is the storage space. One terabyte of storage is an awful lot of data storage packet into such a small space.
