Long Term...better have a backup plan!
Jeremy B., Newegg
28 January 2016
Summary: According to Newegg, I bought this back in late 2008. It's been a rarely used as a backup drive since then, backing up my personal files and whatnot every once in a blue moon. Realistically, the drive has 50 or so hours on it, even though it is almost 8 years old.
Pros: Works well when it works
Cons: Substandard AC-DC Power supply. Nonstandard DC pinout
Summary: The USB connection is very flimsy, after a while the connection is loose and I no longer can connect it properly to my computer. Now I have my data on several external hard drive that I can no longer access. Very disappointed.
