I think it is the greatest.I just purchased one and just plugged it in.I was quickly able to transfer all my videos over from my PC.This unit saved me from using up all the space on my computer.A friend told me about it.I also love the easy and fast data transfer.I highly recommend this unit!
This is a great little drive -- literally plug it in to any available 2.0 or 3.0 USB port and start copying files to it. Take note - this drive ,as advertised, is for extra storage, it comes with no back up software - if that's what you are looking for then by Seagates back up drive. You can use Windows backup with it. But this drive is intended for super easy plug and play storage. I have it plugged into a Netgear router USB share port. It showed up instantly on my network ,win8 OS on both machines,. File transfer at USB 2.0, I copied 28 GB of files to it and it took roughly 1 hour.
In summary I would recommend this drive to anyone using a laptop -or- as a super easy alternative to opening your desktop to install another drive for more storage space.
