Great External! 9/24/2015 5:17:15 AM

Pros: Reliable, I dont know what the bad reviews are about but Ive had it for over a year and its working better than my Western Digital that died after 3 months. USB 3.0. I dont really care about speeds as much as reliability. I want to unplug it, shelf it and come back to it knowing my files are intact.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Will get a 2TB when it becomes affordable

Great drive 12/2/2014 12:06:11 PM

Pros: High capacity for a portable drive. USB 3.0 is much faster than USB 2.0. Nice minimalistic design. Fast and quiet.

Cons: Connector feels a little flimsy. Only 5400 rpm.

Overall Review: I own 5 of these and have purchased/use another 4 or 5 for other people. I really like these drives over other brands. However, the USB 3.0 connector on the case feels a little flimsy. I just had one of my drives "die", the computer wouldn't recognize it, although it would spin up and didn't make any clicking or other bad noises. I took the drive out of the case and connected it directly to a SATA port on my computer and it works fine so it was the USB controller/connector, not the drive that went bad. As others have said, the drive is 15mm high, not the standard 9.7mm, so don't expect to take it out of the case and put it in your laptop.

Very Fast!! 6/30/2014 8:38:20 AM

Pros: Very fast! I recently bought a 512 external SSD and the transfer speeds on this are twice as fast and more consistent. It's small and solid with a good size cord that doesn't feel cheap.

Cons: None.
