5 out of 5 eggsThis is a good one

Pros: Simply plug and play. My machine installed it immediately and backed my system up automatically, doesn't get easier than that.

Cons: None at this point. Cable could have been a few inches longer

5 out of 5 eggsSmooth operator

Pros: This is a very well made external HD package that performs as you'd expect. I use it on a very fast notebook and the data just screams (both have USB 3 connections). I'm thinking about buying another - `nuf said?

Cons: None so far and I have been using it in the "history" application on Win8.1 for about 6 months.

Other Thoughts: I had never heard of this brand before but will now put it up on the top of my list.

5 out of 5 eggsNifty, affordable external HD

Pros: Very fast USB 3.0 interface, doesn't require external power source, backwards compatible with older USB 2 or 1.

Cons: USB cable that comes with it is slightly small.

Other Thoughts: This is a superb 1TB external storage solution that is very affordable. I would certainly buy again, several months of ownership and its working great every day.

5 out of 5 eggsI'm Satisfied

Pros: Seemingly well built. Quiet. No problems so far. Decent price for 1TB. USB powered uses only one USB port.

Cons: USB 3.0 cord is short. Only about 8 inches.
But, maybe this will keep you from snagging the cord while you're using it?

Other Thoughts: I use this as a backup drive. I use FreeFileSync to make quick incremental 1 to 1 backups.

4 out of 5 eggsMatsunichi 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable External Hard Drive DM256-BK-1TB Black

Pros: Highly portable in that it draws power from the USB port rather than one of those "wall warts" standard external drives require (have a few).

Cons: Other than that the first one I received could not be recognized and had to go through the whole RMA process (and PAY FOR RETURNING DEFECTIVE GOODS!!! - lost an egg for that).

Other Thoughts: Some (many?) in the comments have said the cord is too short. For laptop use that is usually a good thing to keep clutter to a minimum (remember you won't have an external power supply to deal with). I found a USB extension cable works with the included cable, so "shortness" shouldn't be too much of a problem.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Small, compact.

Edges are smooth and rounded.

Case is glossy, cleans easily.

Transfer speeds for me started at nearly 100 MB/s, then went down to a constant 70 MB/s after about.

No additional power plug required, gets power off of USB connection.

Works out of the box, with no additional firmware/software required to get running.

Comes packaged in foam protective packaging, that can be reused (it's flat and in the shape of the HD + cable).

Cons: Does not work with Wii USB loaders for backup wbfs files.

Bright blue LED near USB 3.0 connector that flashes during activity.

Other Thoughts: Cable:
-The length of the cable is 9 inchs (23cm) long, from endpoint to endpoint of metal.
-It is a USB 3.0 connection at the computer end, and a USB 3.0 micro-B connection on the Hard Drive end.
-Cable is blue in colour (for both Black and Blue colours of the HD).

The USB 3.0 micro-B connection on HD will accept older 2.0 and 1.1 micro-B cables (but not mini-B).
