4 out of 5 eggsYes and No

Pros: Fast. Rather 'spacious' (when I bought it). Good looks. Quiet. Ease of connectivity.

Cons: Doesn't come with software for XP x64. I found some 3rd party software that lets me do what I want for free, but it took a while to find some that I was happy with.

Other Thoughts: This is a good buy if you are using the regular 32-bit version of windows. If you are using x64, they don't have software available for you nor will they send you any even if they did... trust me, I tried!

5 out of 5 eggsGood buy

Pros: Very quiet drive. Formatted it as soon as I got it and everything works great. Like another review stated, only 232GB is available but that is more than enough space than I need. I didn't get any backup software with my drive, but the generic backup feature in WinXP Pro is good enough for me.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This is a great hard drive. I bought it because I only have a 20GB on my laptop and I needed a place to put all my photos and music. It is nearly silent and looks very nice. Stays cool even when it's on for 12+ hours. Nice glow behind the buttons.

Cons: I had a bit of trouble getting the feet on the first time (reading the instructions helped). Taking the feet off even with reading the instructions proved difficult.

Other Thoughts: It's not very portable but it is great if you just need some more storage and you have desk space.

4 out of 5 eggsWorth the money!

Pros: In my case this is around the exact storage space I need in order to back up my files now and in the future so this is what I went with in order to not overspend.

Cons: The hard drive is not the best for portability but is better off sitting on its stand. My one other complaint is that the harddrive is noisier than my laptop which inclines me to leave it off.

Other Thoughts: 232gb is the actual storage space of this, comes with retrospect as it's backup software.

4 out of 5 eggsso far so good

Pros: Good drive size for the price. All my hard drives are western digital. Proceeded to format it with NTFS size I'll need to backup files larger than what FAT32 can handle.

Cons: none so far, altough for some reason when I did the conventional format (instead of the qucik format) the machine hanged. I did a quick format after my windows XP rebooted and so far so good.

Other Thoughts: I'll be using this hard drive primarily to backup my boot drive and my itunes library drive. I have heard conflicting stories regarding the included backup software, but since I have Norton Ghost 10, that is what I'm planning on using.
