Excerpt: I bought the 500GB My Passport Ultra to back up two PCs. I don't have any video files, raw digital photos or other types of files that consume a lot of disk space, so 500GB is way more than adequate for me. My needs exceeded the capacity of smaller thumb drives (8GB, 16GB), so I figured it was time to go for an extrnal HDD, especially since they're now so small and relatively inexpensive.
Pros: Attractive Design, Compact, Easy To Set Up, Easy to use, High Capacity, Portable, Quiet
Summary: This is the quietest drive I have ever dealt with. I actually checked to see if it might be a SSD drive rather than a conventional platter drive. It hooked up easily and delivered the performance promised. Slightly more expensive than another brand, but it will work with USB 2.0 ports.
Summary: People tend to keep to many photos and music tracks on there PC's. It is better for your PC and safer to keep them on a portable with the usb. You can save as many as you want and get instant access to them by simply plugging it in.
Terrible product. It is not at all user friendly, it does not come with an operators manual or quick start guide, and when you call help, its India

Summary: This product was proposed to me by the Best Buy Associate and it was suppose to be "plug and play," technology, it is anything but P&P. It did not come with any user manual, when you start up nothing prompts you to move to the next screen or start up task, you have no way of knowing that your files were backed up. I am so angry I bought this product. When I called the help line I dealt with a rude person from India who could not speak very good english.
