1 out of 5 eggsBad

Pros: when it works great

Cons: Crashed within 60 days of owning it, got a replacement form manufacturer timely but it started making a clanking noise after 60 days again.

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't recommend this drive to anyone, it's better to spend a little more and get something that might last more then 60 days

2 out of 5 eggsWorked great for a few months

Pros: Fast (AT FIRST). Great (AT FIRST).

Cons: USB cord started acting up shortly after I bought it. I had to position it in a sorts of ridiculous ways in order for the connection to stay solid and not have the drive disappear in the middle of a task.
Then, a few month later it stopped working all together, shows no signs of life whatsoever. It is not the cord, it's the cheap piece of rubbish enclosure/ sata connection.
I now have to spend MORE MONEY to but another enclosure and transfer it so I don't lose all my files.
DO NOT BUY. You will be pleased with your purchase for about 7-8 months....maybe. Then, you'll be sorry.

Other Thoughts: Wish I had paid more attention to the 1 and 2 star reviews when I bought it. But I didn't because the 5 star ones were so glowing.
Good luck to you folks who are about to make the same mistake!

1 out of 5 eggsWell... it workED

Pros: It was fast as can be.... AT FIRST

Cons: Ok well while this drive was fast and worked fine for a little while, it just stopped working entirely after already giving me some read issues. At first I just reformatted it and that did the trick for a couple of days. NOW however my computer will not read the drive at all. I can't get any of my data off of it, thankfully it was nothing too important for me to lose, just really annoying.

II know that all drive eventually fail, but to 100% fail in less than 2 years and with HARDLY ANY use at all. It mostly sat in a drawer because I didn't need to transfer that much to it until just recently.

Other Thoughts: I don't suggest this drive at all. I liked it at first but with little to no real warning signs that it was failing, and it seems that random total failure is common with this drive (I wish I had known that before).

5 out of 5 eggsAs good as you're gonna get

Pros: USB3.0 & SATA3 makes this drives one of the fastest platter-based drives I've ever used; internal or external. > 95MB/s Write, and >105 MB/s Read to and from an SSD.

It is powered by a *single* USB port; it doesn't require one of those pigtail dongles that take up two USB ports.

The connection between the cable and the drive is extremely secure. I actually have a difficult time separating the two so I generally don't bother. The last thing you want is your drive becoming disconnected while you're doing a transfer.

The size of this drive is only slightly larger than a standard 2.5" laptop drive; about 1/8 inch thicker, 1/4 inch wider and 1/2 longer. Slips in your coat or pants pocket and you hardly know it's there.

The case has a fairly rugged feel to it. It's shiny plastic so it WILL scratch easily but ruggedness and scratch proof are two entirely different things.

Cons: None, In the past 9 months it has provided me with reliable service. It has not once dropped the connection, failed a transfer, or had any read errors occur. It's been re-formatted between HFS and NTFS quite a few times and has been filled and emptied more times than I can count. No issues.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this HDD to anyone that needs additional space. While not as fast as an SSD it is as good as you're going to possibly get at this price point.

1 out of 5 eggsFailed within a month! Poor investment

Pros: Large capacity, good price, small

Cons: The drive failed within a month. The USB cable connecting to the hard drive was a lose connection that seemed to be a problem, but it worked nonetheless. However, the drive completely failed within 30 days. The drive itself is dead, nothing else. The drive was carefully removed from the outer casing and was tested and no longer worked. I had very important files that I will never be able to recover. VERY DISAPPOINTED!

Other Thoughts: Do not purchase this drive, go for a specific Western Digital brand rather than this to try and save some money, I wish I did...

1 out of 5 eggsDead

Pros: it worked at first...

Cons: This drive worked fine for a few days. I sat it aside for a month and picked it up to back up my files and it stopped working. I cannot get to connect to any of my pcs

Other Thoughts: I am not sure its passed when I can return this item but it would be awesome to have a working product.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent product 1 year in

Pros: Fast, light, works consistently, even looks decent. I share it regularly between my work laptop and home desktop, and transfer files between my machines and my kids'. It simply works!

Cons: None really. Wouldn't mind having rubberized edges or something but I've had no problems at all with this drive in the 14 months I've had it.

2 out of 5 eggsVery Inconsistent

Pros: Looks nice, Portable, and fast when it works..

Cons: The cable like many have already mentioned is pretty dang short for my taste but I just sit it on top of the chassis and it works for me.

The biggest issue I have, however, is the inconsistent transfer speeds. I mainly bought this drive because I back up and transfer large files between multiple machines and it still takes over 5 minutes to transfer 10gb files! For the first gig of transfer it will have speeds of up to 150-160mb a second and then after that it drops down to 32mb/s or below... Definitely not what I was expecting.

I was trying to find online if anyone else was having a similar problem and haven't been able to recover much information on it. Maybe its just my drive.

Other Thoughts: Its a nice looking drive aesthetically but for my first usb3.0 drive, I am greatly disappointed.

5 out of 5 eggsFast external drive

Pros: This is a 7200rpm drive - unusual for external portable drives - and faster. Nice looks.

Cons: Silver surround looks like metal, but is plastic.
