1 out of 5 eggsDon't bother

Pros: I'm the admin asst for a company that only supports these drives. I have about 15 people that use this drive, so I'm pretty familiar with them.

Pros: The back-up software is relatively easy to use, especially for people who aren't particularly savvy.

Cons: Cons:The drive is very fragile and back-up fails often.
Back-up process is slow compared to other drives.
The drives die far too frequently.
Abysmal customer service and shipping practices. Really, I can't tell you how much time I've spent trying to get help/answers from CMS, and they don't seem interested retaining my business, despite the face that I pay a 25% premium to order directly from them.

Other Thoughts: I don't care what my IT department says, I've started ordering a different drive.

2 out of 5 eggsInconvient

Pros: The speed of transfer was fairly fast, and it offers more than just a USB transfer. That's the only thing that's good.

Has an On/Off switch.

Cons: Takes about 10 seconds on average to get it in sync with the computer.

It died on me after 6 months, and happened to several other people I know.

Very Fragile, if i touched it it would lose connection to the computer. And i also the power cord eventual can't stay in the hard drive, I had to position the cord just perfectly.

Other Thoughts: I would not trust CMS again. I haven't heard anything good about this product. At the first it worked fine, but it went downhill after 2 months.
