5 out of 5 eggsPowerful Little Drive

Pros: - Small
- Powers off of computer
- SSD

Cons: - None
- They discontinued it

Other Thoughts: - I would have bought more because it was a smoking deal and is ideal for a portable drive. I hope they bring it back but I went with another make and model. Hunt the 5 egg stuff, it.s usually well worth it.

4 out of 5 eggsVery poor shipping packing!

Pros: Fast drive, has the best reviews so far, 1 less egg for very poor shipping packing!

Cons: Reviews are starting to drop and that's a concern since most drives have a hard time to get past the warranty period. I maybe one of the lucky ones being it's been over 12 months without one of my 2 drives failing. I to received my drives lose in a box with only a couple of plastic air pillows, this is a big concern being that it dose shorten the life of a drive to slide all over in a box during shipping.

Other Thoughts: I to received my drives lose in a box with only a couple of plastic air pillows, this is a big concern being that it dose shorten the life of a drive to slide all over in a box during shipping. I like doing business with Newegg, I hope they take care of this packing problem with Atlanta Network Technologies, or get a company that takes a little more care packing hard drives.

5 out of 5 eggsQuick and Reliable

Pros: Great price for sufficient storage. I have owned many external hard drives and of all, this is my favorite.

Cons: Had some problems transferring data from an old hard drive to this one however it was resolved quickly and I didn't lose anything.

Other Thoughts: I would definitely recommend this for anyone needing to store tons of music or movies for either personal or professional use.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent External HDD

Pros: - No Power Outlet Power Source Required
- USB Connection
- Small
- Fast
- Quite

Cons: - Short Connection Cable

Other Thoughts: This is an excellent external HDD. I use this drive for backing up my family computer. From day one, this drive has worked well and I have no complaints with it.
The drive is small and does not require an outlet power source. The drive is recognized almost instantly while working fast and quietly. The USB connection cable is a little short, probably about 1ft, but that isn't really a problem.
I recommend this drive 100% .

1 out of 5 eggsWon't Ever Buy Seagate

Pros: They are the most affordable but it's a big gamble because you can't replace your data once it's lost!.

Cons: I have five 2 TB Seagate HD's that are only good for paper wieghts. However; in a paperless world, they are not even good for that.

I've lost thousands of gigabytes of data because of these Seagate HD's. Don't waste your money, spend a little more and get a WD or any other brand but Seagate!!!!!!!!!

4 out of 5 eggsQuite a Jellybean

Pros: Bought a few of these for our users. Work great with true USB 3.0 ports -- I suspect most will plug into a laptop. Recognized quickly, formatted in NTFS. Spun right up. Comes with usb 3.0 cable. Speed is great, transferring between 80-100 MBps, roughly the same as plugging in a sata spinning drive directly

Cons: Might be sensitive to power, as didn't spin up well on one desktop, although that port may have been in use by other devices as well. If you choose to keep this thing plugged in long term, you might not appreciate the short cable. When traveling, you will not want to keep the cable plugged into the drive, as it might snap off when you put in a bag.

Other Thoughts: For me, the ideal use for this device is to back up all my laptops and leave this in my desk drawer.

3 out of 5 eggsMessed up once, Am trying again

Pros: Fast, no setup required, and portable. USB 2.0 Compatible as well as 3.0. Overall a very good little drive

Cons: Mine died with barely any use after a month and a half (was unable to copy to the drive, tried to the reformat when everything stopped working completely). I have tried everything, but the drive will not work with the USB interface. I disassembled and tried with multiple SATA to USB type connectors and only attained limited intermittent functionality with them. However the drive itself works flawlessly as a normal SATA drive so I don't know what the issue could be.

Other Thoughts: I only realized the issue after my RMA period had run out, and I had no time for trying to get it fixed or replaced under warranty from the manufacture. I have purchased another and am waiting for delivery and will update my review once it arrives.
