Pros usb powered, ultra sleek size & lite weight
Cons basic backup software
Summary After a couple of crashes, I decided to add a backup system the Maxtor one touch (60gb) handles all of my needs after adding True Image 10.0. software included is only basic in results, or I would have rated it a 10. there is no need for a power supply as it powers off the usb connection. A great value as compared to time spent rebuilding my laptop software.
"Best portable HD"on by vgfreak
Pros Durable, sleek, fast and portable
Cons Lousy software
Summary The best in portable storage, although I'm still looking for a better back-up app because the bundled one is crap.
Pros small, fast
Cons not a strong external case and usb ports
Summary it works fine for 6 months later, the usb port is damaged and the cable is not recognized by the hard drive. i am looking to replace external case if available
Pros Small size and quiet
Summary Mine crashed after 53 weeks causing me to lose my data. Also the backup software caused my computer to lock up. No more Maxtor products for me!
Pros small enough to fit into my dickies shirt pocket
Cons i had some small software problems but my computer was to blame
Summary i love this hardrive i replaced it with my flash drive on my key chain
