Good so far
I needed some more storage and this was on a pretty good sale at the time ($50). I had no trouble connecting the drive to my computer. It comes with some backup software, though I am not using it. The end that connects to the drive is a USB micro-B connector that I had not seen before and is different from other USB connectors.
What I wound up doing was opening the case and getting the Toshiba MK5059GSXP HDD2J53 hard drive out. It is only 9.4mm thick, so it fits in my old Dell Vostro 1400 notebook computer. After copying the old hard drive contents over to the new drive, I was able to to put the old 250 GB hard drive in the Buffalo case and I'm using the Toshiba drive in my notebook. Most 1 TB drives are too thick, so I'm not sure I could have upgraded to more than 500GB. The drive seems quick on USB 2.0, but I couldn't try out USB 3.0. I know not everyone will do something like this, but at least it is a possibility.
