5 out of 5 eggs Took a second, but it's working 06/05/2009

This review is from: Xigmatek 1TB USB 2.0 / eSATA 3.5" External Hard Drive HDU-USD0110 Black

Pros:

Its a great concept, just plug in any hard drive you want and it'll boot up. It supports both 3.5" & 2.5", so that's always a plus. Main reason I got was to help out my boss and help him recover some of his files he's lost on his old computer. I've been meaning to get a new external hard drive anyways, so I just went ahead and got this. It's nice! the LEDs on the front don't burn your eyes out like the Western Digital ones do, and the drive itself doesn't get too hot when doing alot of day-to-day tasks. The drive supports up to 1TB hard drives, other than that I have no idea..

Cons:

Well, the drives themselves don't slip in and out as easily as they should. Took me a few minutes how to get the little bigger into the actual slots.

The power button is on the back, which, is kind of annoying because it's right in between the USB cable and the power cable. Very inconvenient; I would have prefered if it was more in the front so you could perhaps, just touch the circle in the front, instead of having to squeeze my fat fingers inbetween two cables.

Other Thoughts:

If your like me and was scratching their heads when they finally booted it on and nothing showed up under My computer, its because you have to FORMAT the hard drive. (Don't forget, this hard drive is new and has no bloatware on it)

Go to Control Panel > Classic View > Administrative Tools > Computer Management > Highlight "Disk Management"

Then find the bugger that has 931GB on it. Just right click on the little graph and select the Volume thingy and follow the promts. Hope that helped you!
