5 out of 5 eggsA great addition to my bag-o-tricks

Pros: Neat appearance, integrated cable, solid feel. 80GB capacity, it just works.

Cons: Shoulda gotten the 320GB

Other Thoughts: I use this as a storage drive for my on site techs. It's just what the doctor ordered.

1 out of 5 eggsPoorly Designed

Pros: Looks nice on the outside.

Cons: Poor function due to poor design; it pulls so much power that some computers (like my laptop, for example) cannot power it from the USB ports and it causes a power surge.

The user's manual written in what must be some Chinese dialect of English will leave you scratching your head.

Other Thoughts: Skip this product and choose one that is less about looks and more about function.

4 out of 5 eggsNice looks, no problems yet

Pros: A nice looking portable drive. It comes preformatted for NTFS and is very easy to use. The cord is very short but it does with an extension for it, you have to sacrifice something for the small size and looks I guess.

Cons: none

4 out of 5 eggsworks well enough

Pros: It worked as expected. It does come with a hard drive if anyone still has any doubts. Small, doesn't way to much.

Cons: none thus far

Other Thoughts: The packaging was in rough shape, the device itself was bouncing around in the rapping, but it still works so all is good i guess.

5 out of 5 eggsDON'T WORRY; BE HAPPY!

Pros: Pretty much plug and play. Don't worry- the drive is included in this package. So just ignore section 2: Setting Up because the Hard Drive is already installed.
I did do a backup already, and clicked on the "safely remove hardware" icon, then removed the device. Then I plugged it in again, and Voila! All my files that I had backed up were there on the backup. Yea!

Cons: So far, none.

Other Thoughts: I think when reading the User Manual it helps to know ahead that the SATA hardrive is already installed in the external storage unit.

5 out of 5 eggsEagle Tech 80 gig review

Pros: Can't beat the price. Case is better quality than I thought it would be. Right out of the box plug it in and your good to go.
Case is sleek looking.

Cons: none that I can think of.

5 out of 5 eggsA Great Deal

Pros: Does what its supposed to. Open the box, plug it in, how hard is that? Stylish design, small, light, very affordable.

Cons: You can't easily close the flap when the USB cable is out, not a biggie, just would have liked to be able to easily snap it shut while in use. Considering the price, not really a big deal, just though i would mention it.

Other Thoughts: This IS an external HDD not just an enclosure, trust me, i own one and use it. I didn't think it was very heavy at all, maybe if you're comparing it to a thumb drive.

5 out of 5 eggsYes. Hard Drive IS Included

Pros: Open box, take it out and, plug it in and use it. Stellar design for an external hard drive. USB extension cable included for use with pc. Heavy duty, yet sophisticated looking case. Compact and well thought out design. Great value for price.

If you wanted to upgrade the storage capacity but you want to keep the case, you can purchase a separate SATA drive with more storage and easily install it yourself.

Cons: If weight is an issue for you - its got some substance to it. You can find something else that's lighter. I actually like the heftiness. Makes me feel like I'm not hauling around some cheap junk that's going to break if I knock it over.

Other Thoughts: Because of the first reviewer's comments I checked it out on Eagle Tech's website before purchasing. Hard drive IS included.

So, where does the confusion come in? The first step in the instructions that are included tell you to take 2 screws out of the case, open it up and insert a hard drive. Then, it walks you through getting it formatted, etc. The instructions seem to indicate that the product you just bought was only the case. Eagle Tech's customers might benefit from instructions that are a little more tailored to each product in the package.

Check out Eagle Tech USA's website for yourself. There are plenty of reviews of the product on their website as well.
