This external hard disk drive has never disappointed me. It works fast and silent.
As soon as I can use it with a new notebook which supports USB 3.0 it will imagine me incredible speed.
If you have an unvarnished wooden work desk not a gloss painted desk the very sharp-edged casing makes no visible scratches.
Otherwise you can use e. g. an old book or mouse pad as bottom layer to protect your desk against scratches.
The smart and nice way is using felt pads as I show it on the page Field Test.
With these facts in mind you have a very trustworthy device with a very cool design.
If you don´t like this device (design, sharp edges, capacity, weight) please have a look on the next page for alternative devices.
