Very nice hard drive
Bought this to use with my Shaw Pace DC758D and it worked like a charm and I have a dual tuner PVR now. Would have been nice if it had come with an eSATA cable, but other than that nothing to complain about. If there are others looking to turn their HD box into a PVR, this is the external hard drive to get!

Experience: 6 Months


Speed, Red-Blue light, eSata port
doesn't come with eSata cable
I bought this Hard drive for an every day use for a good price. The eSata port is very useful and makes it faster to transfer files (although the cable is not included). The USB port is just practical in any cases (obviously). The blue-red light flashing when the hard drive is reading/writing is very helpful and cool. overall, its a very good hard drive for its price, i recommend it.

Experience: 3 Years

This drive has been great for me. I use it with eSATA and it has great transfer rates. Acom could not have done a better job with this drive!

Experience: 2 Months


Price, Build Quality
Poor HHD inside, No e-sata Cable in the package...
Its a good external hdd for the price ... But the hdd inside can be a poor one or a decent one.. Its like a lottery :D
But good product for the price cant complain!

Experience: 5 Months


Quiet, fast transfer rate, on off switch, esata port and usb
not a great pvr extender, often has errors when recording
I bought two of these units, one for my pc and one for my pvr. I wouldn't recommend it as a pvr extender but it's great for my pc. I still haven received the mail in rebates though. I don't have high hopes of getting them so I guess I paid full price...

Experience: 2 Days


Fast and quiet
Inside of this enclosure is Samsung HD502HJ. It has unbeatable performance and running super quiet. The average reading speed is as fast as 115MB/S. It became standard ESATA Hard drive for our IT program in BCIT.

Experience: 3 Weeks


Low price, runs cool, relatively fast, looks stylish
Glitches sometimes on my gaming computer, no eSata cable included
Bought this when it was on surprise sale for $79.99 with a further $20 mail-in rebate. That would bring the total to $59.99, which is a great deal for 500GB of SATAII storage. I upgraded from a ATA 160GB Maxtor that I've had for 4 years.

Runs relatively fast in USB2.0 mode. Certainly fast enough to transfer ISO and such with ease. It would be great if it had included a eSata cable, but I guess they need to cut the costs.

The only gripe is that when connected to my EP35-DS3L motherboard and if I proceed to give Windows a restart command, the drive somehow prevents my computer from restarting with the overclocked setting and instead resets the BIOS to default then restarts the computer normally. At the same time, the drive shows a red light, meaning it was not detected correctly. The problem goes away if I unplug the drive before rebooting.

Experience: 1 Years


Excellent transfer speed on eSATA
Good quality case
Good quality power switch
None found yet
I love this drive with it's 500gb capacity. I do tons of HD video editing and I store all of my raw HD footage on this drive. Over eSATA I get an average write speed of 30/MB per second and an average read of 50/MB per second. I would recommend this drive to anyone looking for an external hard drive with excellent build quality and blazing transfer rates. I give this drive 5/5

Experience: 10 Days

Good price, speed, Esata 2.0 and USB

Attractive stand
As usual, no esata cable included

The light bar flashes fairly bright when harddrive is active - I use this next to a tv attached to a mediaplayer and this light is a bit distracting so I pointed it into the corner
Rock solid, the Esata at this price is a plus. The flashing light is a bit much if its in your view. I believe the actual HDD is a hitachi.
