Tough little cookie...and dependable too

Pros: Very portable, easy to install and use. Has a somewhat rugged design which and coupled with its size makes it ideal for travel. Though 100 GB now does not seem like much, it has just enough for the important stuff. Works well with Vista too, however I don't use the bundled software.

Cons: None to this date, and I have owned it for over a year now. It should be understood that this is not a performance harddrive.

Other Thoughts: To reiterate, it's very good for travelling purposes. I have been on many trips out of and around the country with it in checked luggage sometimes, and it stands up to the test. No problems so far...knock on wood

One or two gripes, but a great buy!

Pros: Small, lightweight, easy setup (WinXP), no need for a power adapter execpt for special circumstances, LED light is very bright for bright light conditions

Cons: LED light on front is very bright for low light conditions (can be distracting), USB cable a little awkward, setup on Vista a bit complex unless updates are downloaded before installing.

Other Thoughts: Other than the odd USB cable (I wish it was only one cable with two ends), this HDD is great. The software does not like Vista, but this is easily fixed with an update from Maxtor themselves. The LED light is extremely bright, so this drive isn't fantastic in dark rooms. Great product, all in all, and those gripes are minor.

great for the average user

Pros: very lightweight and reliable

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: i've heard of some negative feedback on this hd because of the encryption software, though i've never used it. without encrypting the hd, it works great.

Very Good Portable Storage

Pros: Lots of storage. Extremely light weight (about 7 ounces) and small. Fast data transfers. Works right out of the box. Just plug and play. This drive allows me to leave my heavy laptop at the office, and that is a big deal when you commute on a motorcycle.

Cons: Despite so many positive media reports of its sync software, I found it very lacking for my purposes. It missed lots of files on XP and was not compatible with Server 2003. I ended up buying a 3rd party program (an additional $x) for synchronizing my files between the drive and PCs. Also, I recently discovered that I cannot use this drive on any computer other than the 2 I have been sharing data with. I'm not sure why, but my theory is that once you encrypt the drive (with included software) the software must be preinstalled on any computers you use with it. For example, it didn't work on my dad's computer (XP sees the drive but doesn't assign a drive letter for it). He recently purchased the same drive and it works (but he hasn't encrypted it). If I'm right, be sure to carry around a seperate CD of the software when you encrypt the drive. Also, you will have to make a CD as the software comes on the drive (and is not accessable on additional PCs once the drive is encrypted).

Other Thoughts: I convinced my dad to get this and he is getting a lot of use out of it. He's a typical PC user, not an IT guy, and he has no problems whatsoever with the drive.

Quiet & Reliable

Pros: It is extremely quiet, generates very little heat, and is as fast as you would expect any USB2.0 HD to be (even with the encryption enabled). Software setup and encryption / password setup were simple.

Cons: Does not come with software installation CD. No big deal, except...

Other Thoughts: ... if you've encrypted the drive on Laptop A and want to use it on PC B, you can't install the encryption software because it's ENCRYPTED. I recommend that you burn yourself a CD with the installation files from the HD so that you can install the drivers / software seperately from the drive itself.

Absolutely Quiet...

Pros: 1)Absolutely Quiet-Can't even tell it's Running.
2)Very light and Portable.
3)Very Fast-Backed up 2500 photo's and movies in no time flat.
4)Can Set up password for Secure access.

Cons: 1)Wish it came with a Carring case.
2)usb Cable that comes with it is very short.
3)comes with Pre-loaded operating software on the drive instead of discs which of course shorts you by 6.87 gig.
