5 out of 5 eggsReliable, hardy, great value.

Pros: I own three of these. After well over a year, all three are still going strong. They are as fast as any other mechanical drives that I have ever owned.
I find them to be very reliable.

Cons: Even with the USB 3.0 cord in a USB 3.0 jack, I do not get the advertised higher transfer rate. This could be my laptops, though. Right now one is transferring at 11.9 MB/second.

Other Thoughts: Newegg always takes great care of its customers! I recommend Newegg and these external HDDs.

2 out of 5 eggsEnclosure and Drive both failed

Pros: Excellent performance when functional! Was a good price at the time as well.

Cons: Enclosure failed within the first half year of use. HDD also failed in an alternate enclosure before reaching a full year of use.

Other Thoughts: Purchased the 2TB model of this exact enclosure (same drive model/revision as well, aside from capacity)

5 out of 5 eggsFast and quiet

Pros: Does exactly what it needs to. If you use a USB3.0, I was getting up to 70-80 Mbps transfers, and USB2.0 20-30Mbps.

It is very quiet, can't hear it at all.

Good price for an external.

Cons: None

3 out of 5 eggsFaster, yet less reliable. Look for different brand.

Pros: Inexpensive, small-size, looks good, usually functions, faster than 2.0

Cons: USB connection to enclosure, short cable, heat output, Seagate brand, drive failure

Other Thoughts: Well. I am a veteran of sorts when it comes to computer hardware, and what I can tell you is that I usually don't have a preference with my hardware brands, but I usually lean towards Western Digital or Intel solid-states. This drive was needed as one of my other backups was failing, but the drive seems to fail to run on USB 3 and 2!! Only an issue with one PC, but it is my main rig and a new one, so shouldn't be a driver issue. There has been some intermitent cutting in and out, but when I manually run backups it seems to run alright. The USB connection to the drive enclosure tends to get loose, which is very scary. Bought to travel with my laptop when I need to backup on the road with customers, but this seems like it may be too risky. Back to the cloud!

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It's a 1 TB drive and it doesn't require an external power supply. It is very small and portable. I've had it for a little over a month and it still running great.

Cons: None that I can think of. Could be bigger?

5 out of 5 eggsWorks for me

1 out of 5 eggsPiece of Junk

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Used it less than a dozen times before the drive completely failed. Extremely disappointing product.

Also, the device is way bigger in size than the photo would suggest.

Spend the extra money and get a WD drive.
