Great back-up

I keep one for music only. And it's perfect. No problems no issues ever. Worth twice the price, happy it was cheap enough. Everyone should have an external Drive.

Very Useful HD

I purchased this external HD so I could create a system image of my computer's hard drive in case of failure. There is no installation since all you have to do is unpack, plug into usb port and you're done. I would definitely recommend this product for price and usefulness.

Ease of Use

I purchased this external HD so I would have a place to keep a mirror image of my computer's hard drive in case of failure. I am not using the software that comes with the drive to create backups automatically etc since that was not my intent. I really like the transfer speed achieved through a usb 3.0 portal, really cuts image transfer time. Installation really can't be called that since all you have to do is unbox, plug into usb port and you're done. I would definitely recommend this product for price and usefulness.

Very Satisfied

I use this unit for playing my iTunes Music Playlists, playing music video files and viewing my total pictures collection from my computer, all on my Blu-Ray player - and it works very flawlessly It is also very convenient, in that it is small (wallet size), transfers files very quickly and is powered via its USB cable. Highly recommended.
