5 out of 5 eggsFirst day looks good

Pros: Works with my Linux machine...
I decided to call Verbatim before buying to make sure it would work. There was no wait and no menus to wade through I called and then I was talking to an Indian tech.

Cons: It doesn't say it works with Linux in the specification tab.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Drive

Pros: Good USB drive, quiet, plenty of space for your backup also comes with firewire

Cons: Not really a con but because it is a 2.0 USB takes quite a while to backup your system but thats to be expected with a USB.

Other Thoughts: This unit comes with USB & firewire but the firewire is actually slower than USB not a major problem. Nice to have both if you need it.

4 out of 5 eggsIt gets the job done

Pros: It is a decent hard drive that does exactly what I need it to do. I'v been able to back up both my desktop and my laptop on this hard drive. I found it to suprisingly quiet and easy to use, it works just like an extra hard drive for your desktop or laptop. Works extremely well with all versions of Vista so don't be scared to try it.

Cons: I dont have have to many complaints about the hard drive other than it is bigger than most. Its about as big as a decent sized bible or something. Like I was saying before if the size is not a big issue to you then this is the way to go.
