I needed a new backup drive urgently after my old Maxtor PS went up in a puff of smoke. I have worked with (but never owned) FSC equipment before and have never been disappointed, saw this drive at the absolute bargain price it is for a 1TB drive - by far the best value per byte I could find from a decent brand, and bought it.
Of all the other (4) external drives I own, this one is BY FAR the fastest - a factor of 300% in some cases. When you're moving around large volumes of data it makes a big difference. I don't use the backup software, but for those who want a one button backup solution, you can't go wrong with the Nero solution that comes with the package. I love the on/off button too - all my previous drives, I've had to pull the power or USB directly out of the drive. This drive also powers down when not in use - nice.
One thing I don't like is the enormous, blue drive activity light on the front face - when it flashes, the whole room changes colour - and it can be more than a little distracting if the drive is facing you - at least you are in no doubt when there is disk activity! Facing the drive away solves the minor problem tho. The second point I think worth mentioning is that there is a Western Digital drive inside - WD has picked up some negative reviews on its product stability and customer support - so hopefully, there won't be any hardware problems, obviously FSC will pick up any customer support issues on this product.
So far I'm very happy with this puppy.
