I've been using this external Hard drive for just under a month now and have to say that it stands up to it's claim of being Tough and shock resistant!!
Using this device is super easy - it has an integrated USB cable that tucks in securely into the case and that you can plug into your lap top or desk top. While compatible with USB 2.0 ports, it works optimally with USB 3.0. The data transfer speed is significantly faster with 3.0. It takes a few seconds for the computer to recognize it and then it functions perfectly as an external hard drive. I have not had any hiccups where this is concerned.
The drive does come with Nero BackitUp & Burn software included (for Windows). The software to use the drive does work with Mac and PC. The box that it comes in only includes a small Quick Start Guide (as most hardware does nowadays) and then the manuals and primers are on the drive itself. you are supposed to save these files to another drive but, frankly, unless you are doing something more complicated, I didn't really need to refer to anything. It was literally plug and save.
Another plus is the Warranty - two years with unlimited help desk support.
While I used this hard drive for a while, I think it really proved itself when I handed it to a teenager and asked him to use it during his school day to save everything he worked on. It was used at least a few times daily for a couple of weeks, dropped regularly and still works as perfectly as it did on day one.
So, a drive that stands up to it's name of being Tough. Recommended.
