Large capacity! sleek! vented! great!

Very useful with its large capacity! It's sleek and the vents running along the top and back give a reassuring feeling that the harddisk inside won't burn up with longtime use. It has a usb 3.0 port and the cable that comes with it is usb 3.0 to usb 2.0, so it isn't an issue using it with older laptops and PCs. I use it both with a windows and a mac system and it works great. It can either stand upright and take up very little room on your desk or lie on its side. There is a power button on the back which doesn't really seem to do much since it starts working as soon as you plug in the power adaptor and the usb into any system, and stops when you eject it. its a slight con, but not really because it doesn't get in the way.

Satisfied with the price and the product

Happy with the deal. Looking to purchase more. Copying speed is quite good just like others. Average Speed on USB 2.0 port: 28 MB/s (Write) Average speed on USB 2.0 port: 46 MB/s (Read) I don't have an USB 3.0 port to check the speed. Hope it to perform good on 3.0 port also.
