Died before it got to the 8 month mark. 12/03/2013
It had a lot of storage?
Died after very little use.
I was only using this a back up drive of a 250GB ssd and a 500GB regular drive. At the time it died it only had 300Gs on it. I had only back up to it 3 times. Then one day I go to look for a file I had deleted and the entire drive was corrupt. Now my comp can't even recognize that it is a drive.
Really looks like I am not the only one having this issue.
