Ease of Use

bought the USB 2.0 laCie 250GB & a Western Digital firewire/USB2.0 250GB HD (I already have 3 of these)> ran a test with both drives empty & the G5 2.5 Dual doing nothing but writing to the HD, one at a time- Western Digital (on firewire) copied a 14GB file in 13.5 minutes; the LaCie in 37 minutes; I'm sticking with the WD's; also, you can daisy-chain the WD's, not the LaCie USB 2.0; I like these drives, they stack well, run cool, no noise, & pretty fast

I now have 3 of these (200, 250, 250 gb) stacked on my desktop. Very good pricing, very quiet, pretty fast in my book. Highly recommend! www.cheflifeonline.com

Great Product

by R on 11/7/2006

Not much to say except it's been working just fine. I also didn't install the backup software since others seemed to think it was lacking, but I may do it later. I just plugged it in and let Windows XP find it, and I was off an running. Relatively quiet and problem free. I'm glad I bought it.

Great Product!

by spirnie@comcast.net on 11/7/2006

I have been extremely happy with the Great Western 250GB external disk drive. It was very easy to set up, it does automatic daily backups of my hard drive, and it provides a lot of peace-of-mind to know I have reliable backups of my system.
