Superbly compact and efficient

I was shocked by the size of this little dynamo which fits easily into a shirt pocket or purse pocket. I'd previously purchased a 1 TB drive in the past and it's about 10x the size and requires an outlet. This drive works solely on USB (2.0 and 3.0). The size really blows me away. Very portable. Anyway, the device isn't heavy but it has "weight" to it and is sturdy with a hard glossy exterior (downside is the surface scratches easily but that really has no effect on performance so it's a minor issue). I'm not a techy so this review comes from the point of view of an average person trying to backup files. With this, you have the option of installing software and using the backup functionality or simply using it as a storage device which is how I used it - specifically for media, which I have a lot of. I didn't have any issues transferring my entire music and video library as well as an extensive photo library. It took time to transfer the files but it was flawless otherwise and easy to access after the fact. I've been using it for about a month now and I can't think of anything to complain about. I would recommend this to anyone without reservation.

FIVE STARS!!!!!! This is a great USB Hard Drive. The installation was quiet easy even for newbie like myself. Windows picked up the Drive immediately and installed all the stuff it needed. It has worked great so I have no complaints. The shipment was also on time and I appreciate that.
