5 out of 5 eggsWorks with FCPX

Pros: I can edit video projects in FCPX straight off the drive. Plugged into a USB3.0 port on my Mac Mini with two (internal) Seagate Momentus XTs and 16GB of RAM, I can edit straight from the drive without any problems.

Cons: It's only 500GB

5 out of 5 eggsUSB 3.0 is the Bomb!

Pros: It works - fast.

Cons: Cable could be a little longer (it is 18") but that is not enough to knock off an egg.

Connector into HDD unit is nonstandard USB - I'm not sure how common that is with 3.0.

Other Thoughts: If you need lots of external storage this is a good buy at a buck per GB.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect for my application

Pros: Small, light, quiet. Worked instantly with no installation needed. It has installation apps on the drive but they're not needed. Powers through the USB cable on the desktop and the laptop.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: To the guy that thought the cable is too short, get a USB extenstion cable. To the guy that couldn't find a longer cable: it's a USB 3.0 to Micro B cable and they can be had for less than 5 bucks for a 10 footer.

4 out of 5 eggsDoes the job!

Pros: Nice little drive. I needed it to back up my video files and free up some hard drive space; this does the trick. It's nice, light weight, portable, and it's powered by USB. Previous external hard drives I've owned had to be plugged in the wall, and were a nuisance to move from computer to computer. This, however, is nice and easy.

Cons: I'm knocking off 1 egg, because the cable is SUPER short and it's proprietary. If anything were to happen to the cable, I'd have to special order one from the manufacturer, and manufacturer cables are often way too pricey. I really wish companies would manufacture devices with standard USB cables and ports, it would make life so much easier.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent drive

Pros: Typical Samsung Quality. Nice looking and appears to be be very well made. Compared to a similar Samsung USB 2.0 drive, this thing is FAST! Highly recommended.

Cons: The supplied USB cable is too short. I've been trying to find a longer cable, but am having one heckuva time trying to find one that fits the female port on the drive. I now have quite a collection of cables with micro ends advertised as being 3.0, but they don't fit. Aggrevating, but not enough to remove a star.
