22 July 2013
  • Pros: Worked great when it worked...
  • Cons: RMA first one after ~1 month due to loud clicking hard drive noise. Second one worked for 2+ years before the connector started to flake out, wish it would last longer.

  • Pros: Small, light weight & no power adapter needed.
  • Cons: The micro usb connector goes bad and disconnects the drive at the slightest movement. Eventually it disconnect without any movement.

Good drive for the price

Chris B., Newegg
8 January 2013
  • Summary: Wish this was USB 3.0 like my other drivers, but it's an older drive, so no complaints. Would buy again in USB 3.0 flavor.
  • Pros: Great portable drive. No power cable required, so perfect for laptops. Great size. I get about 20-30 MB/s transfer between my computer and it.
  • Cons: Had some issues with it within the first year. Complete reformat and change of cable and I've had no issues since. I've since replaced it with a Seagate GoFlex drive, but I keep this one as a backup.
