5 out of 5 eggsAs promised

Pros: Small, quiet, unobtrusive.

Cons: The cable is very short, making it very unpleasant to connect to a rear port on my box which is wedged in amongst other stuff. I park it on my printer or just let it dangle. My first portable drive, so not sure if cable length is all that different from other similar drives.

Other Thoughts: Well, it still works, unlike the drive which prompted me to purchase this. Easy setup, nice and small, no issues.

5 out of 5 eggsAnother great Buffalo product

Pros: Fast, quiet, small, and reliable.

Cons: None, unless you don't like the way the blue activity light works.

Other Thoughts: A nice case that fits this HDD is the "Drive Logic DL-53 Portable Soft Pouch".
