Very, very good drive 10/07/2011
This review is from: HGST 500GB Touro Mobile Pro External Hard Drive USB 3.0 Model 0S03105 Black
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,
Transfer cable is thick and durable.
Nice blue activity light,
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.
* - 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 :-)
