Summary: I'm very happy with this purchase. This hard drive has held up for over a few years with a lot of streaming to my TV. I'm happy with the read/write ability and have never had any issues. This metal case is pretty sturdy. It makes me very nervous that it's intended to stand up.
Summary: I recently purchased a 2 TB external USB 2 drive. This was about 2 weeks ago and so far not one single problem. I did find the software a bit annoying at first, but have since ignored it mainly because I didn't buy it as a backup, I just wanted the storage.
