First one lasted 5 minutes9/4/2013
The first one I received only lasted long enough to install the software before the power supply went out. The second one only connects at 3.0 speed after reinstalling the software every time. The unit itself works fine but when you have to reinstall the software then you are backing up your computer for the first time every time which takes a long time.
