This is a great usb hard drive. It is super fast and very quiet. The shipment was fast as well. The price is very resonable as they have dropped over the years. I use it to backup all my data in case my hard drive crashes. Definately will buy a couple more.

Despite the product description, the drive cannot be reformatted to operate on a PC. Spent two hours trying to reformat. The instructions were not accurate (or helpful). It's probably fine on Macs, so this rating only applies to PC users. I would not have rated it so low if the description had stated it was incompatible with PCs.
