5 out of 5 eggsWorth the Price

Pros: Small, light and durable. Runs quitely and doesn't get hot. Is powered by the usb ports. Looks good and works flawlessly.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: The advantages are worth the high price per gig.

5 out of 5 eggsCavalry 120 GB External Hard Drive

Pros: Works well as designed. 120 GB is plenty for my backups. No requirement to plug it into the electrical outlet. I bought two already and am getting ready to buy a third one so I can rotate two of them into offsite storage and one with my computer.

Cons: It has a USB cable with double USB connectors on one end. I had to use both of those to get enough power from my laptop to power the drive. On my desktop, I needed only one. The instructions failed to tell me to use the two connectors if one connection failed to power the drive.

Other Thoughts: I haven't tried to use the bundled backup software yet.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat piece of gear

Pros: Small physical size, large capacity, robust. Don't know what I'm going to do with all the space.

Cons: Backup SW that comes with it has a rather invasive install, so I use different backup SW instead. Sometimes XP won't "let go" of the drive when I want to "Safely Remove" - not without a reboot - no idea why. NTFS is a necessary evil I guess since FAT32 can't do 120 GB filesystems, but this means you can't mount and write from Linux, which limits usefulness.

Other Thoughts: Sounds like a lot of negatives, but in truth, I love this thing. Bought one for my brother; going to buy another to use in a thin media server.

5 out of 5 eggsYES: 8 MB cache, and fast NTFS filing

Pros: NTFS filing system, compared to WesternDidital and others (means faster writing of many small files).
8 MB cache, which WD does not give.
Metal casing (WD gives plastic).
Nicer looks (yep, counts too).

Cons: Price per GB still high.
Looking for $ 60 breakthru.

Other Thoughts: Love the peachy gold color. Have 3 WD 120 GB 2.5" drives, so I can see and experience the difference. Still love WD though.
