Bought this drive from Buy.com It's small and easy to use, just plug and play. Comes per-formatted in FAT32 which will work for windows & mac. Drive has no fans so it doesn't make any noise when it's on, but it will make a "clicking" sound when it's being used (nothing major). I use it as a media server, copy movies to it and then hook up the usb on the xbox360 or PS3. The only thing I wished was that it came with an esata cable as well (comes with usb cable).

All the positive reviews on this one are true - quiet, cool, fast .. etc. Overall, satisfied with the product itself. Watch out for the rebate, promoprocess.com makes you jump thru hoops just to have the RIGHT to print out the form to fill out. If you are successful in printing out the form, then you can fill out and send in. Then all bets are off whether/when you will get $ back. I have tried for several days now, and cannot print out the form. The site gives me a link to print (after I registered my drive serial number) except the link doesn't work - it cannot find the form file and gives an error message.. Two emails were sent with no replies. The link to contact support directly at website does not work either. There are no phone #s. On top of that, I only have 2 more weeks to fill it out (i.e. 1 month after invoice date). If i don't get my $30 rebate - can you blame me for saying this is a scam? You should go to their site and check it out before buying. For the same qualifying purchase, you may get different amounts of $ back (assuming you get any) - depending on which rebate form you want to fill out.

The best valued Hard Drive available.

by Eric on 12/23/2008

Ok, I bought this hard drive for sub- $100 and lemme just say it is probably the best hard drive on the market right now for the money. It uses a 7200rpm Western Digital Hard drive which keeps me worry free on relability, it doesnt have any fan in it so its dead silent, it has opennings in the front that allow the air to flow out of it, and the case is all aluminum so even after a 20min transfer (via eSATA which would take hours with USB2.0) and the hard drive being on all day, the case isnt even warm the slightest bit, it spins down after about 5 minutes of not being used and there is always a on/off switch for the power in the back if needed. There is only ONE thing that I don't like, but it is not the hard drives fault, when connected through esata, my computer takes an extra 5 secs to boot while it scans for sata hdds because the fantom drive needs to spin back up.
