If the transfer speed of your old portable drive is killing you then it is time you pick Iomega Prestige Portable 35192 500 GB external hard drive. It gives true value for your money. I choose the 500 GB one as it is sufficient to save my word documents, presentations and spreadsheet. Sometime I store some internet downloads onto the disk and the file transfer takes place within no time. You have to experience the USB 3.0 speed to enjoy it. Never mind if you have a USB 2.0 port the drive is backward compatible and works fine with USB 2.0 as well. If you want a bigger capacity drive, there is also a 1 TB version available in Iomega.
Dosen't work with WD TV7/4/2011
Works fine with my Windows XP computer but my WD TV media player wouldn't recognize it. Never had a problem using portable drives from Hitachi, Western Digital, Seagate and Verbatim. They all sync and play files from the player flawlessly.
