Works as advertised

Steven D., Amazon
27 April 2015
  • Summary: According to DISH Network, I needed a 2 TB hard drive with USB 2.0 to connect to the Hopper to expand my recording capability... plenty of space now for recording new movies and sports events. Device is quiet and blends with décor behind the TV.

Solid, reliable external hard drive

Linda Daniels "nature artist", Amazon
14 August 2014
  • Summary: I had researched external hard drives and some of them dropped old data when new data was entered. This one is so easy to install, use and you could line them up like books because of the way they can stand on edge (also can lay flat).

But 1 star if you expect plug and play

Grateful Diver, Amazon
23 August 2013
  • Summary: First the bad: The automatic backup function is seriously flawed. The default setting is to save files by "Category". After the first backup, the software would no longer save new files. For 3 weeks, the software would tell me that all my files were backed up, 100%, all good.

Replacement for broken drive.

James Dickey Jr, Amazon
8 May 2013
  • Summary: I had bought one of these from Wal mart. When it fell in the floor and the USB port on it broke loose I had to find a replacement to put my original drive in due to the encryption the adapter card puts on it. My wife insisted I get this and I'm glad she did.
