5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Basically running 24-7 and I've never had an issue with it. My sister bent the power connector at one point, but it still works fine. Fast, reliable, and best of all, great price/space ratio.

Cons: It's a bit noisy, but not terribly so.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Discreet Design, Connects quickly to computer. Very inexpensive compared to other 250gb hdd's out there on the market.

Cons: Couldn't get the stand to work so i wound up breaking the stand bit off and a screw got jammed in slot.

Other Thoughts: Other than the stand not working it's a good HDD. I've dropped it from about 2-3 feet onto hard floor a few times and it still works great just like new.
4 out of 5 eggs. 5 out of 5 if the stand worked.

5 out of 5 eggsMy first external HDD, and a darn good choice

Pros: Holds everything I need it to, transfers everything nicely, and formatted quickly for me. Used it within 10 minutes of opening the box and have not had any problems thus far. got it uber fast from Newegg.

Cons: None. But if I really, really wanted to get picky, its that.. well, no. Even if i was picky there is nothing wrong with this product. So buy it.

Other Thoughts: Buy it.

Pros: Great price, unbelievable shipping... This is a fast drive, and is perfect. I use it to put music on and it will plug and play with my xbox 360!

Cons: Not a true 250 gb drive, it really comes in at about 232 gb.

2 out of 5 eggsNoisy, but effective

Pros: It works

Cons: it's noisy as hell spinning up and spinning down. The first time I heard the drive spin down I was sure the drive had crashed. The noise can be heard clearly from the next room.

2 out of 5 eggsCheap enclosure

Pros: Cheap, decent drive inside (Maxxtor)

Cons: For some reason the enclosure crashed on me, I'm happy it was just that and not the drive though.

2 out of 5 eggsDead =(

Pros: Fast and Cheap

Cons: I had this HD for 13 months and it worked great. Today it finally died and it is no longer under warranty. Worked alright while I had it, got pretty hot at times just sitting idle.

Other Thoughts: Really sucks having this die considering it had pictures, videos, games, etc all on it.

I wont be going with this brand again.

1 out of 5 eggsWorthless Heavy Box

Pros: Fast Transfer, Cheap for amount of memory.

Cons: Died 2 days after receiving it and lost all the data I backed up on it. All it does it turn on its blue light and makes the slight humming sound.
