Summary: easy to set up and use, sits comfortably on top of my home desk top pc and I can take it with me and plug into another pc at work without any hassle, if you need a large capacity external hard drive this is ideal.
Summary: My second purchase works for me ...last in stock ...thanks...delivery very quick...Notice a lot of people not happy with on off switch position ...but for me its fine for my 1000s of photographs ..
Summary: I've been using this now for nearly a year and it sits in the corner and does what it's told! It's fairly quiet and does the job. Apparently the light on the front will go red when a hard drive has failed, which is handy because otherwise you'd never know. No hard drive failures to date, very pleased with it. There's a switch on the back to pick a raid/non-raid setting, and you don't need any software to run it.
Summary: Received the product today. Plugged it into my laptop using it's default BIG setting - all ok. Followed the instructions to convert to RAID1 - drive is not recognised by my laptop, nor does it appear as "unknown device" as described in the manual (similar experience to another reviewer here). Footered for ages. Got nowhere. Ejected the device, powered it off, reset it back to the BIG setting and plugged back into laptop - drive is not recognised by my laptop.
Summary: A great piece of kit, ideal for backing up system files, movies etc. Very easy to use and comes complete with back up software and a suspend mode. This mode is very important as my pc, running Win 7 Ultimate, can take for ever to read the hd. I think it's better to only turn the drive on when you need to use it and not leave it running in the background. Other than that a 1st class piece of hardware.
Summary: Lacking info on what to do after you change RAID settings. Details as taken from Help and Support: 1. Click to open Computer Management. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation. 2. In the left pane, under Storage, click Disk Management. 3. Right-click an unallocated region on your hard disk, and then click New Simple Volume. 4. In the New Simple Volume Wizard, click Next. 5.
