Faster, yet less reliable. Look for different brand.
10 December 2012
Summary: Well. I am a veteran of sorts when it comes to computer hardware, and what I can tell you is that I usually don't have a preference with my hardware brands, but I usually lean towards Western Digital or Intel solid-states.
Pros: Inexpensive, small-size, looks good, usually functions, faster than 2.0
Cons: USB connection to enclosure, short cable, heat output, Seagate brand, drive failure
Cons: Used it less than a dozen times before the drive completely failed. Extremely disappointing product. Also, the device is way bigger in size than the photo would suggest. Spend the extra money and get a WD drive.
