5 out of 5 eggs Very, very good drive 10/07/2011

This review is from: HGST Touro Mobile Pro 500GB USB 3.0 2.5" External Hard Drive 0S03105 Black

Pros:

Beautiful design and exterior,
7200 rpm drive, very good writing performance over the other brands such as Seagate*, Western Digital & Toshiba which use 5400 rpm drives for the most part,
USB 3.0,
Transfer cable is thick and durable.
Dead silent!
Nice blue activity light,
Light weight.

Cons:

Wish there was a 1TB version of this drive from Hitachi, the highest available is a 750GB version which is not available at Newegg as yet.

Other Thoughts:

* - This Seagate drive; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148751 is the only 7200 rpm drive in 2.5 inch class that is a competitor to the Hitachi Touro Mobile Pro. No other drive comes close to this gem from Hitachi. I knew that Hitachi made good stuff but never experienced a hard drive from them before... now, I must say that I am truly impressed with their product and its quality. For me, I will continue sticking to their hard drives especially after reading of all the horror stories from persons who invested in the other brands. I am so pleased with my purchase... I want to get the 750GB version or hopefully, Hitachi will soon manufacture a 1TB version :-)
