I bought this drive nearly a month ago and have been thoroughly impressed with all of its features. Straight out of the box I plugged it in and it was good to go. No setup no install just ready. I then put all my music and video files on it from my home computer and was able to take them with me to work so that I could listen to them all day. Then I put all my work files on it and was able to use them from home! I no longer have to carry 5 cd-rws with me back and forth just to work on my home computer. And the buffer keeps the music from stuttering when large files are being transferred at the same time. Its pretty resilient. I hate to admit it but I've physically abused this enclosure/drive combo and it still doesn't even show signs of it. The system has been dropped over 6 feet onto concrete and it survived, so I believe it could pretty much take anything a regular user could dish out. The 250gb model has ample space for almost anyone. And once plugged in by USB or Firewire acts just like the drive was part of the original system. My virusscan software even adapted to scan the drive every time it runs! I have to admit that I am completely sold on this drive. So much so that I am going to be giving one to my parents for Christmas so that they can use it to store our family home videos.
