Summary: Easy to use and has a lot of storage space. I used this for a back up for my dying computer, and it fit everything with lots of room to spare. I now have all our movies uploaded to it so that when we travel, I can still watch our favorite movies on our laptop.
Summary: I should have listened to all the other people on this site when they said that this drive was not dependable. I've had the drive for about 5 months and during that time it gave me nothing but problems. It was slow/sluggish. un-responsive and worked only about half the time.
Summary: I picked up 2 of the 3TB USB3.0 drives when they were on sale for $109.99. The drives showed up and immediately I started filling them as they were to be used as backups for my existing storage drives. Immediately, I noticed an issue with heat.
