"Excellent external hard drive for desktop"4.0 starson by jmassard
Pros: -Easy installation
-LOTS of space for a good price
Cons: -It doesn't ship with accessories, so if you don't use USB 2.0 you will have to pay extra for the other adapters. However the different adapters attach easily.
-Easily knocked over. Doesn't take much to send it from vertical to horizontal.
Summary: Overall this is an awesome external hard drive. I purchased the 1TB for $99, which is around the same price a lot of competitors are selling 500GB or 750GB. You get a lot of space for an average price for hard drives. Right out of the box, the hard drive was easy to assemble (take off the plastic, plug in USB cable, plug in power adapter). It installed the software within seconds on my laptop and I was able to begin backing up my information in no time.
The only down side I can think of is that the unit does fall if given enough effort. However, it's a sturdy casing so it'll be fine as long as it doesn't fall out of a two-story window.
I am an average user, so the USB 3.0 and other accessories don't matter to me. Still, if that does matter to you, then you will have to pay extra to buy those accessories.
I'm loving this hard drive and currently in the process of figuring out what to do with all this space.
