Summary: I like my first one so much I bought a second one. They work great, no problems, take travel with ease. I would buy even more, one in each color IF they didn't jack the price up by 20 or more just for a different color, come on guys that's a lousy way to treat a good customer.If this bothers me, stops me from buying them, then there are many others doing the same, not buying more, so think about the millions you are missing out on.
Summary: This is a great little external hard drive. I like that it is military tested, luckily I haven't had to test that but it's nice to know in case of an accident, the drive will have a bit more protection. The software it comes with for backup isn't the great, but that seems to be the case for most software that comes with these external drives.
Summary: I bought this drive to hold my service information systems which were stored on multiple DVDs. Since the drive is used with a laptop mounted in a truck it is subject to vibration, heat and cold. After almost 2 years of daily use it is still working just fine.
Summary: I thought this external hard drive would be easy to use to back up important files I don't want to lose. I'm a "technically challenged" person, not an IT expert, so I wanted a user manual or user guide that told me everything I needed to know about using it and explained it in simple layman's terms.
Summary: I am the worlds worst when it comes to going through external hard drives (I go through them every 3 - 6 months) part of it is my fault, I am a little hard on them because I don't always think about them being delicate when I put them in my bag to go to class (and I need a decent size one for all my stuff for college) I bought this as a last ditch effort figuring that if it lives up to the Drop standards it claims then it wont be a loss and if I do successfully kill this...
Excellent hard drive. Seems fast and no problems installing

Summary: I'm not a tech person, so I can only couch my review in non-tech terms. This small hard drive was easy to attach to my computer. I have used it to back up my files and it seems to go pretty quickly, considering all the recipe documents, etc. I have saved. Problem free so far.
Summary: This always worked very well for me until I dropped it maybe 2 ft. off the couch by accident and it went dead!!!!!! After sending it off and spending more money trying to obtain the images off of it I had no success. Amazon was very good to me after I sent an email explaining what happen they refunded me most of the money. I would not buy this again. I lost alot of pictures all because I trusted this so call "military drop standards" garbage.
Summary: I saw the good reviews and bought it...however, in a few months, it stopped working. Ie, when I plug it in, it isnt recognized by the computer. I then kept is aside for a few weeks (an expensive paperweight), and then, all of a sudden, it works! But, only for a few weeks, and then, back to the same situation. The light on it does come on, so the cable is working, and I can feel the mild humming when I hold it. But the computer does not recognize it at all.
