Nice drive

by Steven on 11/19/2013

I was looking for a reliable ruggedized external drive that would standup to normal everyday usage. I did not expect the drive to withstand extreme abuse or misuse, just the normal wear and tear of daily use and transport. I had previously purchased a "Passport" that failed after a slight bump, it was not abused, just bumped. Needless to say I lost data that was difficult to recreate/replace. I read the available reviews and settled on a Buffalo Extreme drive. I have not been disappointed. I was so pleased with my original purchase (over a year ago) that I have purchase several more and recommended them to friends and family, a recommendation that I do not give lightly.
