Dear Transcend: What happened? You used to be cool.

Summary: Not recommended. The build quality is very cheap. The cable connection is not snug or solid. I have to position the drive perfectly to keep the cable plugged in. Any deviation and it slips out.
Summary: Took 12 hours, but it let me copy about 400 GB of data. On the second time I've connected it, it spins, but won't mount. I'd used Trascend flash media in the past, but I guess I'll go back to known brands for hard drives.
Excerpt: The drives are too new say if they will last but there I got a lot of error messages when I tried transferring data. Tech support stinks. it takes days for them to respond to your email and if you have anther question in relation to their reply, that takes day as well.
Transcend provides the worst customer service I have experienced

Summary: Transcend provides the worst customer service I have experienced.Don't waste your money on such a product. When I opened external cover , I saw that they are selling SEAGATE harddisk with just a name of transcend. its better to go for SEAGATE directly
Summary: Slowest bundled backup software in the western hemisphere, spends forever "calculating" progress bar doesn't update, breezes through a folder on internal SSD, external USB drive port to port? forget it.
Summary: I sent this drive back - straight out of the box, it connects, disconnects, connects, works for ten minutes, then disconnects. The drive itself seems rugged, the problem seems to be with their design of connector, which seems shallow at the drive end.
Summary: Less than 3 month after I bought it, it disconnects from my PC frequently, very annoying. I bought quite a lot Transcend CF cards and portable hard drives before, this is the first one so disappointing.
