I always store a lot of things on my PC, but on my recent upgrade to an Ultrabook, I knew I must buy an external hard drive for all my documents, music, media, games, applications, and standard backups. I saw many, looked around for reviews, but saw this for an incredible price and decided to buy.
One of the first things I noticed when I opened the packaging was how small and light it was, especially for a hard drive. I plugged it in to my USB 3.0 Jack, and my PC automatically started to format it. When the format is complete, I saw something that shocked me. Most external hard drives, SD Cards and Pen Drives have less space than they claim, but not by ridiculous amounts. They CLAIMED it was 1TB (or 1024GB) but it turns out it is only 913GB. Don't get me wrong, it is still way more than enough, but I was disappointed with the chunk they removed.
This drive is very fast. I transferred 200GB of data, in just under 20 minutes, which I didn't believe was possible. It doesn't overheat, and you know it is plugged in with the small light it shows. It is very light and compact, perfect for travelling. Recommended!
