4 out of 5 eggsOn the noisy side but does the job

Pros: Speedy response time, does the job of providing external storage & is reliable.

Cons: Gets a slightly heated up & a little bit on the noisy side.

Other Thoughts: This drive is relatively small & not very heavy, its not tiny or a pocket sized drive, no way. However its not huge either. It runs a little hot in my opinion & is a slightly noisy. Other than that its not given any problems (I've had it for about 10 months) & given good response times. Mind it you do not get 120GB (you'll never get what the 'actual' capacity is supposed to be), in this I got 111GB which is well, decent. Overall if your not picky on the noise this drive given you get a good price is a very good option.

4 out of 5 eggsSmall but Noisy

Pros: Small Form Factor. Cool design

Cons: Noisy. The plastic stand it comes with transfers a lot of vibration to my desk setting up a noisy hum. I placed it on one of the foam packing things it comes with and it's much quieter.

Other Thoughts: Comes formatted Fat32. If you want any kind of security, you'll need to format it and it takes a while. Bout an hour.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat little drive

Pros: Great little disk drive, sits right on top of my machine. Bright LED access light, small, easy to setup (remove from box, plug in, turn on). Can be vertical or horizontal.

Cons: A tad noisy during access no included backup software (that would have been nice)

Other Thoughts: I like it...it gets the job done!

5 out of 5 eggsNo Issues

Pros: Simplicity, ease of use.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: You unpack it, plug it in, turn it on, and there it is. You gotta love it.
The only thing that would be better is if it didn't require an external power source (outlet), but that's a little thing.

4 out of 5 eggsGood product!

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Almost didn't buy after the bad reviews for the larger drives of this brand.
