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
