Pros: Clean exterior; keyboard had all the keys; powered on quickly once I pressed the power button; fits under my desk.
Cons: Pirated copy of Windows! Immediately was notified of non-genuine version running. I have never had a problem with Newegg before, so I don't put blame on them. And, honestly, I expected more from HP. Buyer beware.
Other Thoughts: I'm sure not *all* of the OSs are non-genuine, but be prepared that this system may end up costing you an extra $50-100 (unless you want to use Linux).READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: WD 1TB Elements Portable External Hard Drive - USB 3.0 - WDBUZG0010BBK-NESN
Pros: Inexpensive (compared to similar products on market at time of purchase). Extremely simple plug-n-play... just plug and go (needs reformatting for Mac OS X). Single USB port required (no ext power needed). Very small (just larger than my palm).
Cons: Runs warm. Plastic case insulates heat a bit too well (wish it was aluminum). However, it does have four tiny feet to keep it from lying flush against a surface. Included *custom* USB cable is only about 18 inches (45 cm). If this cable is broken, you're out an ext HDD! A bit slow compared to a similar competing product.
Other Thoughts: -1 egg for plastic case and custom cabling.
Just received it in mail (2 days after purchase). Make sure your virtual machine doesn't grab the drive away from the host. I spent ½ hour tracking down why I couldn't access it. USB speeds are slow, but that's what you're buying.
Comes with 30-day trial of WD backup s/w.
