5 out of 5 eggsDied after 6 years

Pros: Was using this on my Mac(s) as my Time Machine backup. Worked like a charm. Survived for almost 6 years.

I'll even admit I had some "unsafe" unplugs so maybe I contributed to it's demise. But 6 years is a good run in my book.

Cons: I cannot speak to it's stability in terms of shock absorbing. It's not marketed as a portable drive and I never moved it much.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: Had this for over 5 years now, and it's been perfect. Never had any problems whatsoever. Works with USB or ESata, both of which work great for me. The case is strong and protects the drive well. Currently being used as a backup drive.

Cons: The disk activity light is a bit bright but can be covered.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat drive as a PVR

Pros: Lots of storage, quiet, fast enough for my use.

Cons: Generates moderate heat.

Other Thoughts: Bought this in 2009 to use as a PVR (Bell HD box with USB unlocked) and it has been running solid with no problems ever since.

2 out of 5 eggsFantom Drive DEAD!!!

Pros: Great for large storage, backup, etc. Easy to hook up. Love the eSata Option.

Cons: Died after very little use. I used this as a backup drive for my important files once every 6 months or so. Good thing it was only used as a redundant backup.

Other Thoughts: I connect this thing to the computer about once every 6 months or so; that means it has only been used about 6 or 7 times and now it's dead. I had only used up about 500 GB of the full 1 TB capacity.
