Great except for heat
Easy installation. The reason I purchased this product was portability -- its ability to handle USB2 (high-speed) and Firewire connections. Its perfect for Norton GHOST with the appropriate USB or Firewire DOS driver loaded (included with GHOST). Downside? HEAT. I'm using a WD1200AB (Western Digital, 120GB, UDMA100, 2M buffer, 5400 RPM) drive. I figured 5400 RPM was cooler than 7200 RPM. Everything worked great in XP with some extensive file copying. Left it on (and idle) for about 10 hours and XP disabled it. Powered it off and noticed the heat after opening the case. It sat powered off for awhile and after powering it back on and it was ok. Recommend for what it was intended for copying/backing up files and not for continuous powered-on use.
