Expected very good, and got very good!1/6/2009
As a developer of SCSI, SAS, SATA, and FC boot code, I have had a need for a really portable, sturdy and AFFORDABLE hard drive for quite some time. (I began to think it would never be big enough and affordable at the same time.) WOW, I can carry my aux brain in my pocket. The drive is still being 'customized' as I write this, but I can tell you that it is set up for dual boot (most of my debug is in DOS for INT13 drivers) and I'm using a version of LiveXP for development/documentation/email/everything else. Instead of packing a laptop, I can usually get by, very well, with just the drive in my pocket.
