I am new to hard drives other than the ones that come with the computer itself, but i'm so impressed with this one. It's fast, & has a ton of space. I love the plug n' play action, i was saving pictures, movies and music to my new hard drive within a matter of minutes. GREAT BUY!!
very easy to use, cables were included so all you need is plug it in and it's ready to use. I had it transfer files for nearly 7 hours straight and it worked just fine. I think the transferring speed is pretty good, but I don't know how fast is "fast".
The outer case kept it cool though it gets warmer when you use it too long which is normal in any external harddrive.
Overall I like it!
