  • Excerpt: This compact external drive works really well. It does not need to be plugged in as it uses a USB port for power as well as communication. I use Linux which was not listed in the OS's the drive supports. No problem. I just used Gparted to format it as ext4 and it works perfectly.
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Compact, Easy To Set Up, Easy to use, High Capacity, Portable, Quiet
  • Cons: No Power Switch

Beautiful and useful

  • 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.

  • Summary: I find great use for this when I need to dump important (but large) files into storage for record keeping purposes. I personally have never had a bad experience with a WD product...so I could be a bit bias.
  • Pros: -Lots of storage -Dependable Name -Looks nice?
  • Cons: -Slow with large transfers (but this is with 2.0)
