Dependable but large
Pros: Love that it has USB 3.0 and have not had any issues or speed disruptions moving quantity of files
Cons: Its a bit large compared to any other drive ive seen. Also the photo provides a perspective of what really is a long rectangular drive that stands pretty tall. With a drive this large, 30TB should fit inside!
Other Thoughts: With a box taking up this much space, I really would rather be 5 or 6 TB drive. I hope to see this one available again sometime soon at this affordability

Pros: I found this at one of the big box stores and did some research, so got it expressly to protect the photos and records of my wife's fledgling photography business. Not my only backup, but if a disaster happens, it is likely to survive more than my MyBooks external drives or NAS. It is a solid, weighty device that stays put. It installed painlessly, simple USB 3 hookup. Drive is fast. I'm using it exclusively for backup (using Acronis Home 2012). President of company emailed me after registration, pointed me to videos showing the product being in fire and then water and drive being safe. Yes, an offsite solution is likely needed for 100% safety and when you must keep things safe, but this is a solid 1st line for backups that has more survivability than anything reasonably priced I could find.
Cons: None really.
Other Thoughts: I'd be interested in a gigabyte NAS that had same safety features.
