Most Favorable Review

Small, but requires Y cable

SAMSUNG 500GB USB 2.0 2.5" External Hard Drive HXMU050DA/M22 Piano Black

Pros: This drive is absolutely tiny, a little bigger than a blackberry device. It comes with a leather case that covers it well and looks pretty slick.

Cons: Requires a Y cable? The drive came with a Y cable, but when hooked up to my laptop, it will start up with a regular mini usb cable. When attached to my desktop, it would only start up with the Y cable. Strange stuff.

Overall Review: If it continues to work with a regular usb cable, this is a 5 star drive, if not, it remains a 4. Copied 2.7 GB in just under 3 minutes, not blazing, but gets the job done well enough for me.

Good cable

Pros: Works well, didnt give me any trouble installing. The color is nothing exciting but it's better than black?

Cons: Flimsy cable clip came off one end right away, but they're really not necessary anyway.
