Summary: Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program ( What's this? ) This portable hardrive is one of the best !! Here are the details- short usb cable makes it perfect to fit in your pocket, very unobtrusive buzz powered so you do not need to carry power cord ultra soft but durable cushioned rubberized case seems shock resistant as i have dropped it at least twice from about 6" I also accidentally spilled dogs bowl of water on it when I stupidly left on kitchen counter...
Summary: Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program ( What's this? ) Most of the portable drives in the market today are nothing but a shell over laptop hardrives. Ofcourse you can do it yourself - buy a 2.5" laptop hardrive and a enclosure and you are all set. But dont do that, I've been there and done that. Maybe the right thing to do about 6-7 years back, but no longer.
Summary: Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program ( What's this? ) I actually didn't realize from the picture how little this was and was shocked when I saw the box. I held it up next to my iPhone & it was smaller. Small enough to fit into any pocket or travel easily. We just replaced one of our work computers with a laptop that goes from work to home and travels with us as well. With a work computer out and about, an external hard drive needs to also travel easily.
easy to use, super intuitive and effortless for Mac users!

Summary: Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program ( What's this? ) First of all, I'm using this product on a MacBook Pro, so my review will address that particular experience. I found this hard drive incredibly easy to use, from unpacking it (no clamshell packaging- hallelujah!!) to set up, to use, and even to store after I was done with my backup. The drive measures 4x3" (a little bigger than a playing card or an iPhone) and is very thin.
Summary: Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program ( What's this? ) See picture. This portable drive is impressively small and light. The rubber casing is about 2mm thick all the way around. There is a slit on the opposite end of where you plug the USB in that can give you access to the drive itself. It is lightly glued shut but, it can easily be opened and re-adhered. What surprised me is that under the casing it really is just the drive with the parts and all.
Summary: Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program ( What's this? ) You get 320GB of storage in something roughly the size of a trifold wallet (actually, my wallet is thicker). Comes in a rubber cover that feels quite durable -- but I didn't test by dropping it ... :-) Copy-in speed from my laptop was about 18MB/sec; copy-out speed was about 26MB/sec. I find both quite satisfactory. Also comes with some software, which I don't care about, and did not use.
Summary: Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program ( What's this? ) I have to say that I am happy with the 320GB version of this drive. Windows 7 detected the drive with no troubles at all and the drive was up and ready to go in seconds. The included software is nice as well in case you don't have any backup software. Included is a copy of Nero for backing up plus a copy of Norton Online Backup if you are interested.
Summary: Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program ( What's this? ) I received this tiny 320gb ecternal hard drive yesterday to use as an additional sotrage device for backing up my videos, pictures and music. I was shocked as to how small and light this unit is so I can definitley see myself taking it wth me on business trips as it is very portable. The overal unit is simple to use. It has one input on it which is a USB input.
Summary: Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program ( What's this? ) I've only had one other hard drive in my life and it was pretty big. And heavy. I immediately liked the size of this one - very small and portable. The small size was very nice! I plugged it in and started copying all my stuff over. 43GB of stuff took me about 45 mins. to transfer. About the same time as my old hard drive. I opted not to install Nero or Turbo USB as it's really not needed.
No frills and no problems, make this a great drive

Summary: Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program ( What's this? ) Recently I have been looking at purchasing an external hard drive to lighten the load on my laptop. When I was given the opportunity to try out the Verbatim Titan XS 320 GB USB 2.0 Portable External Hard Drive with Rugged Rubber Casing I was happy to do so. My need for a external drive came from all the home videos and pictures stored on my laptop.
