This USB drive has it all - speed, reliability, and maximum capacity. At it's original price tag months ago, I wasn't even interested, but as soon as the price dropped , I started looking at it again. Sure, it comes with the one-button backup feature, but I hardly ever use it, and neither will you. What you will do, however, is have plenty of room for your computer, no matter what type you use, Mac or PC. The extra 300GB is a dreamboat of space, I can finally do what I want to do on this laptop and store all the extra luggage in my (might I add small and very quiet) external drive. With the luggage case, transport is a breeze - I don't have one, though, so I just wrap it up properly, pad it and protect it from the elements, it's traveled over 1000+ miles with me and no problems. I trust this harddrive, and if the price is low enough, you should too.

Very fast no-nonsense external hard drive that reads quick and is highly reliable. Have maxed out the storage with multimedia and it is super-fast in transfer. Can be stacked for additional storage and it will be more reliable than other larger but slower storage that is entering the marked today.
