  • Summary: Hmm...shoulda looked at more of the reviews before I made my purchase. Silly me for not paying a little more for the "enterprise" version of this drive. In short, these units shipped 11/26/2008 and the drive I affectionately named Bastion died 12/26/2008.

  • Summary: I bought this drive as a secondary drive, just for backups from the main drive. Easily installed, quiet and quite fast in operation, but after just under 4 months of use, it's decided not to play any more. It gave up completely.
