Excerpt: I bought two more of these passports during their last sale. The HD itself works quite well with about 100+MB/s average read/write speeds. I now own 3 2tb passports one of which is already 2 years old and still performing the same as when I purchased it. With this purchase I received one dead passport that would not show up in device manager. This is bound to happen eventually when purchasing any electronics, so I see no reason to fault anyone for that.
Pros: Easy To Install, Fast, Highly Compatible, Quiet, Reliable
Excerpt: I use this hard drive to back up files and it works very efficiently. It's easy to set up and it's small size makes it easy to transport as well as not taking up much space on my table. It's well built, not flimsy and transports easily. There is nothing about this product that I would consider a drawback and would highly recommend it.
Summary: Would not copy all of my PDFs. 7 files out of 100 did not get saved. Customer service could not solve the mystery and developed an attitude. Deleted all of the memory and returned it to the store. What good is an external hard drive if you have to monitor it to be sure it is saving everything? I'm now trying a Seagate product. Wish me luck.
Excerpt: I finally solved a problem that had been haunting me for the last year. When I switched to a MacBook Air with 500GB of SSD storage from my trusty 17" MacBoo Pro with a 1TB SSD, I had a problem. My 425GB iPhoto Library was too big to have with me on the MB Air. I know it is freakish, but I love having ALL my photos available to me (especially when using iPhoto Faces).
Pros: Easy To Install, Fast, Great Looking, Highly Compatible, Quiet, Reliable
