Pros: Small yet holds tons of data. Use it to keep backups of my wife, sons, and my computer - I never have to worry about losing data. And a big plus is it keeps most of my data offline - away from the prying eyes of the NSA.
Pros: Small, low power usage, 2TB, usb 3.0/good transfer rate.
Cons: Hard Drive has usb/power plug on the same board as the hard drive controller which means you cannot just remove the hard drive and plug it into a regualr sata port. this is not really a con but i thought i would let people know.
Summary: Unable to use as it does not have a separate power supply as advertised. This is needed for my application...using it with Dish Network to have a DVR service. I am sure this unit is fine for other applications, but it needed a power adapter to use it.
Pros: This drive doesn't come with any bloatware, which was the number one thing I was looking for. There is a trial for Western Digital's back-up software on it, that you can promptly delete and never see again. Just plug this into your computer, and start saving whatever you want on it, just like a thumb-drive. It's quite thin and light, and while I haven't been abusive to it, it seems it can handle traveling.
Cons: Once you plug it into a computer, it will start spinning, and it won't stop spinning until you unplug it, even if Windows has safely removed it. If you're using a laptop like I am, this will suck battery power from it for no reason if you leave it in after dismounting it, so just be careful and unplug it when you're done with it.
