- USB 2.0
This review is from: INOi 1TB USB 2.0 3.5" External Media Hard Drive MH720-00999
I don't personally own the 1TB model but I do own the 320GB model which I purchased in March 2007. This thing is pretty solid. Nice, big heavy build that is pretty hard to tip over. The remote is very small, sometimes too small and can get hidden sometimes, but this thing is WAYY better than trying to lug 100's of DVDs around. It plays the most popular file extensions like AVI, MPG and WMV, but it doesn't play any MP4 extensions so Mac lover be aware. I used this hard drvie for everything before I bought a MyBook 500 for all of my data to dedicate this drive to just movies, television shows and music.
Well, after awhile, things like to die. Don't get me wrong, the drive still works. I can still watch videos and listen to movies and view files on my computer. But I used to leave this thing on all night long when I went to bed, so things started going out the longer I used it. Right now I'm listening to a broken fan that's running on the back. It's not excessivly loud, but it can be annoying at times. Additonally, the blue HDD light on the front gave out about a month ago. Again, not a huge deal, but can be annoying. Slightly a convience for me because that light is BRIGHT and being in a dark room got the light to be very annoying.
I went out and bought myself an eletrical timer for my hard drive to turn the hard drive off at about 3am so it wouldn't be running for an additonal 8 hours. It'll prolong the life of your hard drive casing. This is the best hard drive I've ever own. Loads more features than any other.. Its just decided to be human like me and slowly die away.. The case that is anyways.
