This drive will leave you asking questions like

Should hard drives really be powered directly from USB ?
Should hard drives have an on/off switch
Can a harddisk head really park itself after it's removed from the USB ?

Seagate make hdd's. Toshiba make hdd's. Western digital make hdd's. Sonnics don't. Sonnics take named hard disks, and assemble them into it's own packaging. Or, an OEM assembles the drive, and Sonnics prints it's name on the case. Or maybe sonnics do make their own drives, and manufacture the case. But they are grade c disks, and a shoddy manufacturing process.

Either way, this drive would be the best way to lose faith in portable hard drives. Having used this, I'm not entirely sure if I trust any usb powered portables. I might try a completely different model.

8/10 times on connection, the drive did not spin up properly. There was a faint click-click-click, I re plugged in slowly. Eventually it span up smoothly. For a few seconds. I've tried a few error check scandisks, and it doesn't get through that. It starts clicking.

I gave up, and threw the thing in the bin. £40 - learned. It was a backup disk.

I would never trust this drive with any important data. Not even as backup. I won't be touching the brand or design with a bargepole. Build quality looks reasonable, but that means sod all if it doesn't store data reliably. Sonnics - grade c stock, I assume they just print a logo on OEM assembled disks.

Just arrived this morning. Plugged it into MacBook Pro and worked straight away. Really quiet. Little light just to tell you it is on. Transferred loads of pics very quickly (USB 2.0 works with USB 3.0 port). Comes with a slightly shabby carry case, but it does the job of protecting it in a bag or a drawer or pocket and at least it comes with one. Also includes a nice short USB lead to connect. Slight worry I might put my coffee cup on it since it is so thin, quiet and coaster-like.
Only complaint, as yet I can't change the icon on the desktop - so it isn't totally Mac friendly. Got rather used to just drag and drop a new item to change icons and I like a visual reference to match the gizmo. I still give it five stars, because I'm buying another straight away.

Great product, plug in and go. I used it for backup on my mac (time machine). Feels and looks like a well made product, no worries about it falling to pieces and it doesn't make a sound, which is great for me. The LED at the back lights up red when powered on. Very happy and highly recommend for any mac users looking for a small lightweight hard drive. It has a little less than 500GB, its around 475GB so if you have anything above this, I recommend a higher storage.

Great product - I was looking for a back-up for ps3 so as this is formatted for FAT32 it's ideal. Neat - great colour - fast transfer time. Delivery & packaging first rate. Cost wise - great value.

my daughter needed an hard drive to store her university work has a student teacher so I brought her one hard drive that wouldn't respond to both her mac book and my pc, it was either one or the other so I returned it and brought a Sonnics 500GB 2.5 ice blue pocket size external, its been absolutely brilliant it does exactly what the description said it would do, and the best thing is it works on both her mac book and my pc so she can now transfer her work at any time any place to or from both product and there is no formatting to worry about, this product is well worth the price top marks just plug in and away you go.

I bought this to record programmes and movies on my satellite receiver, it just plugs into the back and it's in the FAT32 format required by my receiver. Loads of capacity for HD movies!
