"Great storage capacity for the size and cost"5.0 starson by jw appleby
Pros: small size, range of connections, lightweight.
This drive is fairly quick using the Firewire 800 on a MacBook Pro (quad core).
Cons: I would have liked a faster drive and a little more cache memory
USB 2 is a little slow (that's the nature of the beast)
Summary: I use it for storage of photographs in the field so I have 'instant' backup of the data on my laptop hard drive. I carry the drive in one of the lens compartments of my camera case and have had no problems with the abuse that it takes there. The drive spins up and is ready when I need it, I have had no software problems and use it on Linux, Mac OS and Windows (Vista and 7). Overall, I have used this drive for about 3 months and am completely happy with the cost to performance of the product.
