I finally got my rebate. So, no problems with either of the two same drives. I let Win 7 do all the backups automatically.
Very E-Z Drive8/20/2010
This drive is a fast and easy way to backup an internal hard drive; especially with Win 7. It came with Shadow 4 software, which I did not use. It formats way too much of the drive and even though there is a formatting screen, it doesn't care. So, I simply let Win 7 do the backup it automatically is programmed for and use this drive as the backup unit. This is also the 2nd of the same drive I own. The price was right and the item works as advertised perfectly. It has been over 2 months and I have also not received the rebate.
Don't count on the rebate10/21/2009
The drive is good and works well. It has been over 3 months and I have yet to hear anything about the rebate. (I wrote an earlier review, but it has dissapeared)
I only use this to backup all my movies. Plan on purchasing another for standard digital storage. I dig the bright blue led. I use it as a night light whenever I get up in the middle of the night. It's the brightest, bluest light I have every seen. Pre-formatted in NTFS.
