Inexpensive storage, when on sale
No ethernet connection
WIll be using this drive in a network environment, using the usb connector of a Linksys router. Works as designed. Not too expensive, if bought on sale.

Experience: 7 Days

- Got it for a great deal ($79.99).
- Incredibly fast.
- Super quiet.
- None so far.
What can I say? It's a simple external hard drive that works perfectly fine. I've been using this drive to transfer some high-capacity movie files and it does so in mere moments - less than a minute for several gigabytes (one file). It's also a very quiet drive. It's hard to tell that it's turned on.

Experience: 2 Days

Great price
Good portability
Needs an outlet
So far so good. Needed some extra storage, and decided it would be a good idea to have it portable. Chose this over the 2TB, simply due to the price. If I had a few extra bucks, I would have gone for the extra space, but overall, pretty happy.

Other users showed concerns about the on/off feature, but you can install a driver to have it always on from what I can tell.

Experience: 4 Months

Looks good. very quiet. Quick write & read
Horrible back-up software. Not nearly flexible enough.
Would highly recommend it for single user, but not over a small home network.
