I won't recommend it7/27/2013
I used this external hard drive for 2 months. When I used it to back up relatively small sets of data from both a Vista and an XP machine, it seemed to work fine. However, when I decided to copy to it a set of ~700 files, total size 6 G (one year of family pictures) it was giving messages like I/O Error 0x8007045D. At this point, if I pressed my ear to it, I could hear a rhythmic clicking pattern from the drive. That's on a vista machine. On a Windows XP machine, when I tried the same, it just froze the Explorer, no error messages, with the same rhythmic clicking sound. A lot of files did get copied though, and I can open them OK. I am only guessing that I was unlucky enough to get a drive with some hidden defect, such as for copying small files it works fine, but for large jobs likely to freeze.
