2 out of 5 eggsvery fast while it worked

Pros: The drive had very high throughput, was a good drive to use for backups

Cons: As some other reviewers mentioned the short cable tended to disconnect. The drive stopped working after 9 months, Windows would see the drive plugged in but couldn't establish a connection. When Newegg sent me to the vendor tech support, they denied the company makes it, so no support. Newegg got involved, but the techs got rid of the shipping material, so no RMA.

Other Thoughts: As was suggested in another review, you might want to consider another better known drive that is supported

2 out of 5 eggsNot a dependable Drive

Pros: Cheap 1 TB drive

Cons: unplugs itself while being used (have to unplug and plug back in to get it to appear again. Have tried 2 different usb 3.0 cables on it and both do the same thing) If you are going to stream a movie off it or install a program off it, copy it to your desktop first. My installs and movies always get interrupted due to it "unplugging itself"

Other Thoughts: Cheap for the price but I am probably just going to sell it and get a name brand one that actually works. Every time i even try to copy a big file it unplugs itself and will not appear again unless you unplug it and plug it back in.

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.
