4 out of 5 eggsGo big or go home addendum

Pros: Still works, cheap easy

Cons: It's not very portable, fragile

Other Thoughts: I opened the thing up and found the hard drive was disconnect with the enclosure, I toyed with it and it started working again.

I retract my previous review.

2 out of 5 eggsGo big or go home

Pros: Lots of space, quiet, easy, cheap

Cons: Lasted about a year and a half with no issues, but now I guess the motor is starting to quit, when I plug it in it makes a very quiet high pitched sound rather than the hum of a functioning hard drive and the computer won't recognize it at all. Just moments ago it kicked on and worked for about 20 minutes, and the computer suddenly stopped recognizing it, but it sounds like the hard drive is operating.. No clue.

Other Thoughts: I'll try replacing the USB cord, but I am very pessimistic.

No on/off switch?

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Hard drive for the price

Pros: Price and memory. 1tb for under $70. Works great so far. First external hard drive I've bought. Works great for what I use it for.

Cons: A little bulky. The light letting you know it's on is in the back. Power cord and usb cord a little sort. But for the price, who cares?

Other Thoughts: I was originally going to get one of the 640gb portable usb powered harddrives mostly for saving music. I saw this one and decided to get it. 1tb for under $70, can't go wrong. Great price for the memory. I've saved music and pics on it so far. Great buy so far.

1 out of 5 eggsJust looks like a HD

Pros: It looks nice

Cons: The device was never recognized by my computer. Tried every usb drive available but nothing. I'm running on Vista with all updated drives and still the hard drive refuses to be recognized even though the LED is perfectly functioning.

Other Thoughts: It's weird. Normally there is a warning that something's not gonna work. Either something is rattling or maybe there's a scratch, but no. This drive came out of the box looking like it will work perfectly, but alas it just wasn't meant to be. It raises some questions on quality assurance where a product that should run doesn't at all.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't bother

Pros: Case comes apart easily and the drive is easily removable *insert SarcMark*

Cons: When I first opened the package the HDD was rattling inside the case. I removed the plastic back to see a large gash on the front of the case (no big deal, it's gonna sit behind the monitor, right?). One of the clips that is supposed to hold the case together is broken and the plastic holes (for where the HDD is supposed to screw to the case to keep it in place) are all broken, leaving the HDD to flop around inside the case.

Plugged the case in (waste of time) nothing happens, realize that the board inside doesn't use cables but a straight plug (like is in a laptop) so I have to open the case, remove the screws, and then re attach the HDD to the board and plug everything in hoping that it still works after the HDD appears to have been dropped quite a few times during the manufacturing process.

Now all it does it make a buzzing/beeping sound around every 3 seconds.

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't have minded the damage, all the drive was going to do was sit behind the monitor for extra storage, but if it doesn't work, I can't exactly use it, now can I?

4 out of 5 eggs$/Gig decent

Pros: Price per unit storage is very good.

Cons: Power supply makes buzzing noise and could potentially occupy multiple slots.

Other Thoughts: No on/off switch, runs all the time.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great price for such a large storage capacity. Can't hear any noise from it, doesn't can any warmer than 40c. I've owned this for 3months now and it has helped me saved data from several computers through several reinstallments of windows and one scratch PC build. no problems as of yet. allows me to keep my faster but smaller capacity internal HDD free of clutter. very convenient for taking large amounts of data with me whereever i go

Cons: Its now $10 cheaper than when i bought it :P
also, the power adapter could have been designed better, it takes up several slots :(

Other Thoughts: looking back in retrospect it might have been a good idea to get a model with usb AND sata, but at the time i bought this my pc didn't have sata, either way, i like this drive and have no reason or intention to replace it with an upgrade
