Summary: This portable hdd is great. I have Ubuntu in one partition, all my files backed up in the other. Feels just as fast as the hard drive in my computer when running Ubuntu. At one point I had WIndows 8.1 To Go on a partition, again ran just like normal.
Cons: I reported earlier that the rubber anti- slip feet came off too easily. Well the drive slipped off the table and it failed the 3 foot drop test. Landed flat and has no external damage, and it spins up but windows can't find it. Lost a lot of data so I think I will NOT replace it with a WD drive.
Excerpt: I purchased this drive to use as storage for images which are used and processed in Lightroom and Photoshop CC. I had read the reviews which were above average. But I have owned this drive for about a month now, and I have found it to be just OK. Yes, it's quiet and hopefully reliable.
Worked beautifully for a month then hard drive started to fail.

Summary: I've been using a computer for 20 years but have to admit I know almost nothing about hardware issues but am probably above average on software issues. I've got an Asus laptop with less than half a TB (it runs Windows 7) so my hard drives were getting about 2/3s full & wanted an reliable fast...
Summary: I've generally been happy with this drive. It's quick, sturdy and has been trouble free for the past few months. One caveat to be aware of is the password protection. When you enter your password please pay attention to the length of your password.
