I bought this hard drive because I didn't want to take up room on my laptop with music and movies. It was a great buy it stores most of my media and doesn't take up much room on my desk.
Hard drive arrived about 4 weeks ago after a slow start due to a bad sector at the beginning of the drive the drive has worked great. The size of the drive is just right but may need to be larger as time goes on.
I bought this product for personal files at work. It has been very reliable for more than 2 years.
Good price (bought it at Costco)
Proprietary encryption software
The issue came when I upgraded from XP to Win 7. Basically the Encryption Folder completely disappeared. Online help was no help. I logged a case to get the special software with encryption. Within 24 hours they sent me a link. That didn't fix the problem. I had to call Tech Support and it was a simple case of showing hidden files from the Win 7 Folder Options. This so easily could have been in their Knowledge Base. The rep even heard of this before, so it wasn't like I was the only one.
All in all problem solved, but it would have been nice to have done this all in 5 minutes on the web.
This unit is not only atracktive but proform beautifully. It is very easy to hook up, just power and usb. Using this has freed up my main hard drive and my system is working like it was when I got it. The download speed is great, the price was right. It is really easy to use. Thanks
