Summary: I have been using this unit for almost two years now. Very fast, solidly reliable so far. This unit is very quiet, whether accessing files or not. Installing it into XP was simple no-hassle plug and play.
Summary: This thing is so much fun. I've used it to create an enormous multimedia library that I use every single day as it continues to grow. Although, I have had it a while now and I see that they have become much cheaper than what I paid for it, so that sucks for me, but is awesome for you.
Summary: I had originally bought the 250 GB version of this same external hardive a few years back. It never failed me so I decided to get the 1 TB version when I ran out of space. It's actually better than the one I had previously. I come with some programs to back your files which I haven't used yet.
