Reliable Fast Portable 1/10/2020 1:44:38 PM

Pros: Nice compact form factor. easy to carry with you for plenty of added storage. Easily recognized plug and play on laptops and router. Quiet as there are no moving parts. Backing up files, photos, music is quick and smooth.

Cons: Nothing in particular to complain about. The transfer cable is a bit short.

Overall Review: I am very happy with this drive for the price in particular and may purchase a second one for archiving additional large files.. Reliability has been very good, as also speed. I have been running this for 2 years as a portable extension/backup drive and no issues. My use has mostly been to transport large presentation files with video and images. Secondarily as laptop drive backup.

Expanded storage for game console 1/7/2020 10:41:40 AM

Pros: Works like a charm after the game console formatted it to suit its need. Better deal than buying a console specific external drive with only half the capacity at the same price.

Overall Review: I recommend this product for basic computer needs or for game console expansion.

Only problem so far -- inept instructions for a Mac user 12/31/2019 11:36:33 PM

Pros: Low price, small size, simple. I just recently got two of them, so I can't comment on reliability

Cons: The instructions to format the drive for a Mac are inept. They are written for OS 10.6, which was a 2009 version of the operating system. Even I run a newer OS than that. So the things you see on the screen don't match up with the instructions.
And then. . . it gave a failure indication. I didn't believe the drive was broken already, so I just kept pushing buttons. . . and I somehow got the drive to format.

Overall Review: Low price, small size, simple. I just recently got two of them, so I can't comment on reliability

Easy to setup, use, and compact 12/31/2019 2:59:37 PM

Pros: Good size and quality.
Dependable and reliable.

Cons: These can get a bit pricey at times. So it is best when gotten on sale.

Overall Review: Good size and quality for a gaming system (PS4/XBO/etc.) external drive.
If you do a lot of digital game purchases, a larger drive may be needed.
Overall, I would recommend.
