Summary: This case is not only beautiful with its bright colors, but also does what it is supposed to: I've already dropped my Toshiba Canvio from a 1 meter (3.25 feet) height, with no harm whatsoever. Neoprene bubbles inside not only look cool but they really work. Only downside I've found so far: the side sleeve has small velcro squares to keep it closed, but they are already falling apart, since day one actually. They are not properly sewn or bonded to the case.
Summary: It's USB 2, so not all that quick, and the internal drive is almost certainly 5400rpm, so not all that quick. Perfect for overnight backups. Lots of storage space for regular users (digital photographers will run out pretty quickly), but this is a decent backup drive. I like Western Digital and have bought their drives for years.
Summary: This drive performs great, very quiet, easy to use. It did not want to show up when I connected it to my computer, tried different computers, same thing. Finally tried a different cable I bought from best buy and worked perfectly.
Summary: Cable works fine and the order arrived well inside the projected shipping window. No complaints and these cables are simply too cheap - and difficult to replace locally - not to have several spares on-hand.
Summary: A little noisy-the only time I notice it is when I go to bed, I can hear the HD reading/writing, but that is only because it is on a hard wood surface, which magnifies the sound. But performance is good, and the price is right. Great deal overall.
