I got this babe a lil less cheaper than now about a month ago and it works like charm. Solid performer for the buck!
Fantastic Little Device!10/14/2010
I scoured the internet for a portable HD device like this and didn't find anything that compared. This is my first one, and I'm so glad I got it. The ease of use is effortless. Simply plug in and it's working. The software however that came with it, is just very basic and really not need. You can simply drag and drop into the device, which saves time. Also, this little dynamo doesn't heat up at all. I have it on almost every day and when I put my hand on it, it's not even warm..it's cool to the touch. The performance and transfer rate is relatively fast compared to other models of the same price range. Really there's nothing out there better than this little device for the price. I'm going to look for a 1TB in this brand. I've had it for about a month, and so far it's awesome. Seriously, you can not go wrong having one of these for all your back up needs.
Just What I Wanted10/6/2010
I bought the drive as a backup for my computer's hard drive, and was pleasantly surprised to find that this one came with backup software. Even better, the backup software doesn't create a compressed file that can only be read by that software, it simply copied the selected folders onto the new drive. I haven't tested the performance, but as a backup system that can run while I'm not there, I don't really need anything more than adequate transfer rates.
