I owned a similar product from this manufacturer. It did not come with any backup software, so you basically have to drag everything into it. After just over a year of owning the product and barely ever using it, the drive failed. All the pictures and files on there were inaccessible and I was left with an expensive aluminum box that makes clicking sounds. My advice: if you care about what you have on your computer, buy a device from one of the more well-known brands like Western Digital and subscribe to an inexpensive service like Carbonite that backs up your data automatically and off-site so even if you have a house fire you still don't lose your stuff.

This External HDD Rocks

by A customer on 8/30/2010

Bought this drive about 2 weeks ago and I must say I am very please so far. Transfer speeds are about 80 - 85 MB/S in RAID 1 format using the supplied esata cable. The drive is shipped formatted as NTFS - JBOB. Drive comes with two (2) 2 terabyte HDD's, but in my setup, I "see" only 2 terabytes because of the RAID 1 setup for redundancy. The unit runs cool to the touch, but make sure the exhaust fan on the rear is not being blocked while the unit is running. Overall, I really like this drive. Read More
