Ease of Use

So far so good

by JPatrick on 1/6/2012

Appears to be a nice drive for the money. It's very pretty - shiny black. It worked out of the box with no problems; a genuine plug and play with Win7. No complicated set up like (ah-hem) some other drives out there. Now we'll just have to wait and see if it lives a long happy life or dies within a few short months.
