If you are looking for a good quality, fast and reliable portable hard drive look no further! I bought the transcend a few weeks ago to move work from university to home and to store videos and music that just weren't fitting on my laptop anymore and I'm glad I did!. It's easy to use drag and drop and the transfer speeds are very good (I transferred about 15gb worth of videos etc in about 5 minutes). Unlike other complaints I've heard about with some portable hard drives the cable on this model works very well it doesn't like to unplug itself at will. I haven't personally tested the military drop standards boasted but transcend but I have thrown it down at university in my bag a couple of times (forgetting it was there) and I haven't had any problems with it. In all if you are looking for a reasonably priced hard drive that you can depend on this is the one you want.

This is the 4th Transcend Storejet Mobile hard drive I have bought and had no problems with any of them so far (1st 18 months ago). I find them ideal for creating a near-line backup solution for my DSLR digital photographes and solid state HD video clips, especially when I am away from my base and in locations where the availability of mains power supply is unpredicable (like in Nepal).
Overall a big capacity mobile hard driove in a well build and fair robust case at an affordable price.
RECOMMENDED.

After having a couple incidents of data loss from other external hard disk, after falling down etc, the shockproof feature of this hard disk was a definite must! Apart from this, it has a pleasant look and functions firmly and with the speed specified! I will definitely buy one more if i need one.

It is working nicely and quiet, well worth to have it, and if you lose your things because they blend with other items, this being red is visible.
Totally recommended.

This drive is compact enough to stuff into your laptop case without any issue and a great color to remind you not to forget it when you're out and about with it. I purchased it for my 17 year old son and he has found the second usb connection a bit of a issue, particularly when he forgets the original cable (I've already ordered a second cable in case it happens again). Quiet, fast and worth investing in.

great looking and dead easy to set up. This will keep me going for a good long time. Excellent service as well, ordered 3pm one day and was with me the next day. It would have taken me longer to think about going to a store then park up to buy it

I bought this for my son who has had 2 before this and he is very impressed. The last two fell apart but this one is much sturdier and looks much nicer. Great product to buy

I read reviews of this unit prior to purchasing and although most were excellent, I read one or two that said it wasn't suitable for use with a Mac. Well I use a MacBook Pro and it most certainly is suitable. When first plugged in, Time Machine states that the format is incorrect and asks if you wish to reformat, which of course you do. This is done automatically for you and takes about 30 seconds. It then commences a full system backup which took about 45 minutes on my machine, but this can be run in the background whilst you carry on using the computer. Subsequent backups are completed within 30 to 60 seconds as it only saves files that have actually changed since the previous backup.

The unit is near enough silent in use, a flashing blue light being the only indication it is running, and it seems quite robust although I haven't tested it's drop-test capabilities (and don't intend to). It really is simplicity itself to use, having just one button, which I have never even used as it automatically backs up when connected to the computer via it's two USBs. I am delighted with this unit - I think it represents good value for money and would recommend it to anyone.
