nice drive

LaCie Design by F.A. Porsche 250GB USB 2.0 3.5" External Hard Drive 300728U

Pros: I've had this drive for several months, and it works very well. I had some trouble at first with drivers and having it be recognized on an XP computer (bought it to back up computers using Win98, XP, and 2000) and I had some difficulty getting one computer using XP to recognize it was there. However, other computers using XP had no problem seeing it. This drive has been very quiet and reliable. After updating USB2.0 drivers the problem went away.

Cons: Seems to run a little on the warm side, but not hot- just warm to the touch.

Overall Review: Overall, for the price I recommend it highly.

Most Critical Review

Big storage, but not so sturdy

Pros: Very small, large storage capacity, attaches to a keychain. So far it works well!

Cons: I've had this unit for 2 months, and the plastic is breaking on the keychain part. The top pink part is already cracked off. I have had it on my keychain, but it hasn't taken any out of the ordinary abuse. I'm not holding out much hope that it will last for all that long since it is already cracking. Also, the small size is great, but will probably make it easier to lose...hence the reason for putting it on my keychain.

Works ok, but makes lots of accidental calls

Pros: Sound quality is good, convenient to not be using wired device. Pretty comfortable

Cons: No separate off switch. Multifunction button turns device on and calls people accidentally!

Overall Review: I like the convenience of this device- but you should get the same functions with any bluetooth headset. I have not noticed the low volume issues other users have mentioned. Initial pairing went smoothly. It is pretty comfortable to wear, even for a long while, although it will fall off if you shake your head or tilt your head back. The worst thing about this device is that the multi-function button is used as on/off switch and also as the call button. It can turn itself on when stored in a briefcase or purse and then when the multifuntion button is pressed again, it will activate the voice dialing on my Motorola Razr, wasting cell minutes and annoying whoever you last called or the person it thinks you're trying to call with voice dial. This accidental calling happens even if you have locked the phone keypad.
