Works fine on Vista

by Ben on 4/11/2007

Drive arrived as expected, even with the slower "free shipping" option. I plugged it into a new Vista machine, which recognized the device, automatically installed the needed drives and the device has worked just fine.

So Far So good

on 11/30/2007

Connects quickly, plays my movies perfectly. But I bought this for when I travel, which I haven't done so since. I use a media-bay battery on my laptop so I have better battery time, which is the reason for this purchase. I will post another review after I travel with it a few times to see how well it holds up.
