This was my first external hard drive. I have got to say this one blows all of those out of the water! this drive is quiet and with USB 3.0 all my data transfers fast, i can play movies off of it and onto my computer flawlessly and that's just with USB 2.0. I haven't experienced any over heating at all and i use this drive constantly, because i play my movies that i keep back up copies of. It's very stylish and the brushed metal looks great. this hard drive doesn't turn off randomly like I've seen with other drives. When the drive is on there is only one small blue light that blinks on the front of it and it's not too bright or annoying at all, it just makes the appeal look that much better.
