1.0 out of 5 stars Faulty drive, 1 May 2013
Bought this drive October 12 based on seemingly good value and reviews and that it is Samsung with Seagate drive, both reputable companies. From early on the drive would just disconnect from a MacBook Pro retina in the middle of file transfers or watching a movie from the drive.

I first heard "Denim scarecrow" on the radio in autumn 2004 and thought: I have to have this. I could not find it anywhere but managed to get a cd sent from Little Kiss Records in Albuquerque, New Mexico. As always when buying a cd based on one song, I wasn't sure what to expect. But this collection of folk/americana/roots rock songs is a true gem. Nels Andrew's lyrics are not exactly uplifting as song after song portrays the vulnerable underbelly of southern states' society. Cheap whiskey, dust, vagabonds, whores, lost love, broken hearts, dreams and longing - all poignantly described through Nels' haunting voice. All this melancholy could be too much if it wasn't for the beautiful music… Read more
