Pros: Fits the screen, surprisingly easier to install than some other protectors I have used for other devices.
Cons: Too much glare!! I'm very tempted to remove it, just waiting until I purchase another brand.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: got it for 25 bucks on cyber monday. not bad for this kind of product.
Cons: making it work is BIG hassle. See below.
Other Thoughts: 1-It does not play nice with WPA-TKIP/WPA2, it drops connection and tries to connect again every two seconds or so according to the logs of my router. It works ok with WEP though. I was able to make it work with WPA/WPA2 before for a while, but not anymore, even after hard resets.
2-The software and the user guide is below average. They don't even mention the reset button!
3-When it says "unable to complete" at the end of setup, chances are it actually completed it just FINE, there might be some bug in the software that doesn't get ACK from the device or something.
4-Every time I hit the rescan, it shows a completely different signal strength for the other networks.
5-Doing the same thing twice (such as setup) does not produce the same result?! The software sometimes finds the device, sometimes it doesn't. Same thing with setup.
Conclusion: if you are fine with WEP, and FOLLOW the obvious route of setup without getting too fancy, it MAY work. OK for 25 bucks I guess.
This review is from: Western Digital My Passport Essential SE 1TB Portable Hard Drive (Silver)
Pros: It looks great and works great. Small, fits easily everywhere. Nice looking.
Cons: It is slow IF you transfer few small files at a time.
Other Thoughts: I got it from a store. I think this is one of those green drives that takes a while to wake up before transfer starts, and sleeps right away after the transfer to conserve energy. If you are not going to use it constantly, it is a good drive. Otherwise it'll feel slow every time you transfer only a few small files at a time. I use it for backup and transfer, I also used it to watch movies from and it worked pretty good, not slow at all. I guess the key to make large transfers so the wakeup time doesn't bother you. I never thought I'd care about the looks but this thing looks great. Very nice, compact design like an Apple product.READ FULL REVIEW
