3 out of 5 eggsHitachi Bloatstudio

Pros: Works, doesn't drop off or go missing

Cons: Life Studio bundled bloatware becomes a drive path you have to live with forever. Wants to install a ton of nonsense apps, facebook connectors and flickr and so much garbage. I have never installed the Life Studio app but it still gloms a drive letter and I see a fake "CD ROM" in my Win explorer tree.

Other Thoughts: I can't believe the state of megalomania in today's world. Even when I pay good money for a tool, NOT FREE, I get inundated with a ton of stuff I don't care about or want. When did forcing stuff down our throats become the norm. I woke up one day and suddenly I have to "opt-out" of the theft of my civil rights on every front. And some stuff like this Life Studio doesn't even have an opt-out. I never installed the software, so there's no application control panel to turn it off, as Hitachi wrote in a response to another of their drives here on NewEgg.
