SimpleTech Good, but not Great
I purchased the SimpleTech external drive as a quick and easy backup device. First of all, it seems to do everything it says it would do, so for that, I'm pleased. Second, it is a USB 2.0 drive, but I've found it's REALLY slow on USB 1.1 ports. For example, a backup that normally take 1 hour on my computer (USB 2.0) takes 6-8 hours on my wife's computer (USB 1.1). Third, I've found the software has a few little glitches in it, such as directory trees that duplicate lines sometimes. It doesn't appear to affect the functionality, but I hope there's an update soon that corrects these items. Overall, it's a good unit for casual backups and a good price point.
