Pros Works great. Fast transfer speeds. Solid Construction.
Cons Useless on my Dell laptop - Doh, should've bought another Mac!
Summary This is an excellent piece of equipment. It is very sturdy and a solid performer. I have used many USB models and none of them have felt as sturdy as this one...though I must say I haven't tried any USB models from Kanguru. Because the Mac platform uses 6-pin FireWire ports, this drive works GREAT on my Mac. It is every bit as easy to use as a USB drive. Unfortunately, it is not so easy to use on my PC laptop. The need for the USB power adapter was a disappointment and because my PC desktop at work does not even have a 4-pin FireWire port, it is useless on that machine. BUT if you have a mac, you will not be disappointed. It will work WELL on desktops and laptops alike.
