Summary: This is a fast HD and so lightweight, portable and holds more data than my previous 500gb. I like it that I don't have to plug a power cord for it to work. I store it in my black Amazon Basics Hard Carrying Case which fits perfect.
Summary: 1. the disk is not read by computers 2. the LED blinks and goes on and computer freezes.. I have to reboot again and again... 3. I lost all my data.... 4. Most useless piece of storage that I have bought in last 20 years 5. I swear for every word above!!
Pros: I don't find any thing good with this unit
Cons: Any PC/ laptop would hand trying to read the drive. Total crap. I repent for buying this item
Summary: My next home built computer and all future storage purchases will all be USB 3, the increase in speed is not always huge but it is always great to get the fastest transfers you can if you are a busy computer user like me! Keep in mind when using USB 3 that the write speed is always much lower than the read speed - kinda like your cable internet speeds, which will show a much faster speed that web pages download to your computer, but if you are uploading your speed is...
Summary: I like the new model with the stronger cable connection at the hard drive. I had the older model and the micro USB did not hold up on a mobile device like this. With the new connector it feels more robust and does not loose connection when bumped. The size and weight and spot on and the fact that its powered by USB alone makes it a great all around mobile storage unit.
