Preliminary Note: This is a serious and honest review. So, if you are one of those individuals who do not acknowledge the Holocaust, please don't bother and stop reading here.

Intenso 6031511 3TB USB 3.0 3.5 inch Memory Center&hellip by Intenso
I bought this HD about an year ago for storing data sporadically and it must have been in use for about 10 times, let's say 25 hours. A few days ago it simply died out. I tried everything, opened the box and connected it directly to the pc. Nothing. The HD inside the box was a Seagate Barracuda 3T.

Stay away from INTENSO Hard Disks if you care for your data.

At your disposal you will also find superb easy to follow colored maps showing how the battle developed. Roman and Carthaginian societies and especially their military machinery are also considered in this great book.
