1 out of 5 eggsCauses system to hang up after a few hours use

Pros: Large storage capacity, fast transfer speeds and seemed quiet enough compared to my other externals.

Cons: Stability seems to be an issue, the drive causes hang ups during file transfers and video file playback. Came with a ghost folder that reappears with every boot despite a reformat. Also came in FAT32 format which needed to be changed to NTFS to accomodate > 4GB files.

Other Thoughts: Functionality is at 65% I'd say. Not quite DoA but still unusable, unless one has use for an external drive that hangs up every few hours. Esata works, but again having the hang up issue is a big downer with what could have been an excellent product.

4 out of 5 eggsGood fast drive for price, little loud

Pros: Large hard drive, fast data transfer, good for price.

Cons: Disk spins very loudly, almost like having a small fan spinning on the desk.

Other Thoughts: Very happy with the item, good product, haven't had any problems yet, I use it primarily as a storage and backup drive, but even with prolonged use, the drive stays moderately cool.

4 out of 5 eggsgood back-up solution

Pros: I have one of these attached via FireWire to an iMac, and I use it for the Mac's TimeMachine automatic back-up system. It works well and is substantially faster and quieter than the old 250GB external drive it replaced.

Cons: External drives aren't terribly fast as a rule, but this one certainly does the job.
