With an elegant, glossy front combined with a luxurious, faux leather-like back, Samsung's new S2 external hard drive complements your style. A sophisticated front pattern is the essence of sleek, modern design.

By incorporating a USB controller within the conventional hard drive, the S2 has a smaller case footprint vs. competing external hard drives The USB on-board technology also reduces the weight and the power consumption of the drives. In addition, a power savings intelligence program monitors the drive's use and places the drive into a low power "sleep mode" whenever the drive has not been used for 5 minutes.

Added features enhance the usability of Samsung's S2 external hard drive. A Samsung Auto backup function allows the user to program the default backup in real time or as scheduled. A SecretZone protects important files and data in the form of software-based AES-128bit or AES-256bit encryption. The external drive owner's data is also locked with a password-protecting SafetyKey which ensures data security. You can also easily check available space in the S2 through the capacity gauge icon located on the taskbar of Microsoft Windows operating systems.

4 out of 5 eggsReliable Travel Gear

Pros: Fast, portable, convenient

Cons: Bright Blue LED

Other Thoughts: I've had this for 3 years and it is still going strong. It is reliable and it can take the wear and tear that comes along with all the travelling I do.

2 out of 5 eggsOK...

Pros: Small, light, decent speed.

Cons: Not reliable. As others have stated in reviews mine has failed now with the chirping/clicking and disconnecting. Samsungs site isn't working so well So called their number for an RMA. Which was ok waiting on hold for 30 minutes only to be given another number I need to call on Monday when they were open for an RMA. Waste of an hour on the phone.

Other Thoughts: I won't be buying another samsung drive thats for sure.

1 out of 5 eggsNice looks - Low reliability

Pros: Looks good, thats about all.

Cons: First one purchased from failed about 2 weeks after arrival, just began clicking and randomly disconnecting, until fully dieing, causing me to loose everything that was on it, fortunately I still had it all on my main drive. Newegg replaced it with a new one no questions asked. Replacement unit lasted about 3 months and failed in the same manner as the previous. So now its on the way to Samsung service center to be replaced with a new one.

Other Thoughts: If you want reliability stay away. I found out the hard way :(

4 out of 5 eggsNot a Bootable External USB Device

Pros: Incredibly compact and quiet USB-powered drive with high capacity and no bloatware.

Cons: Unfortunately, this is not a bootable external device. I'm not sure if it's a restriction of using a USB-powered device, or if it's the architecture of the internal USB interface instead of SATA, but it is not possible to boot from this device.

Other Thoughts: This is an otherwise very nice external hard drive, it just did not meet my needs.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat backup

Pros: this thing is great. I tried the corsair version and got the clicking of death then tried the WD and it crashed after a few weeks. I have had the samsung for 4 months now and it still works. the best part of this, the backup software actually WORKS.

Cons: when turning the dim knob down, if you dont watch yourself you can turn it off. but you will only make that mistake once.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat pocket drive

Pros: Really small and light; I had a 250gb LaCie drive that must weigh 3 or four times this one.

Cons: The leather case is a little hard to get the drive out of. Seriously, that's all I can think of.

5 out of 5 eggsBest buy

Pros: Quiet (like other SAMSUNG internal HDDs)

Cons: Included software

Other Thoughts: Made in Korea "SAMSUNG" Quality
I have used similiar WD HDDs since first on market so I can compare those, 60G, 120G, 160G, 400G.
As the size bigger, reliability became the issue.
