4 out of 5 eggsFair value in this product.

Pros: Affordable. Got two for $99.99. Needed a few portable data solutions, and they have thus far done the trick. Use one for work and the other for home use. Not the ultimate storage solution, but 500gb is more than plenty to do quick backups, hold/swap large program files, and to store large media archives. Very happy with transfer rates considering USB 2.0 technology.

Incredibly quiet. I enjoy the fact that it does not require an external power source to function. Stays incredibly cool. Nice white LED light blinks when its working for my visual satisfaction/reinforcement.

Cons: Grey rubber ring around sides of the Device is actually just hard plastic, and is more aesthetically than anything. External face has no interior support for the center of the face. You can essentially pinch the hard drive face until it bends enough to hits the interior components. Does not affect function/performance.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect for saving data incase of crash.

Pros: Great price. Fast shipping. Easy to install and save all of the important data on all 4 of my pc's. Fast shipping...of course...Its newegg.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: My video editing computer crashed...took it to Best Buy...luckily had everything that was important on a partition but had not copied to my external drive incase of the crash. This took care of that once Best Buy saved my data...slicked my C drive and reinstalled....
