Pros: A ridiculous amount of storage for the price!
Cons: Plastic case feels slightly flimsy if dropped.
Other Thoughts: I run windows 7 64 bit and haven't had any problems at all with this drive. Computer recognized the drive right away and I started transferring files immediately! Great drive for the price!

Your average OK external drive
Pros: Works great with Windows Backup, which is not the case with the 3TB WD drive I bought previously. On a Win7 machine with a USB3.0 port sustains about 60 megabytes/second when copying large files, but can be quite a bit slower on lots of small files.
Cons: Came formatted FAT32, but it took only about a minute to Quick Format it to NTFS in the disk management dialogue. Disks intended for backup use on Win7 must be NTFS.

Ugh, hate to do this.
Pros: The price tag
Cons: On initial setup I couldn't just use it like most USB equipped items (Windows loads the driver, BAM go!). The only way it starts is if it's plugged in while computer is first turned on - Windows XP recognizes it as an Internal HD.
Other Thoughts: Honestly, I don't know if the problem is with the drive, my motherboard's USB 3.0 configuration or even if it's Windows 7 itself.
