One MAJOR flaw.
on 25 May 2013
After a heartbreaking loss of my last hard drive and it's entire contents I was determined not to let it happen again. I shopped around a lot and decided this was the best hard drive, in my price range, for what I wanted.
I had read in reviews that the cable and connection for this hard drive was temperamental and decided to buy it anyway.
Had I known just how bad it would be I probably would have reconsidered. The connection to the main hard drive itself is feather sensitive. If you breath on this thing it'll disconnect. The SLIGHTEST movement (as in, bumping your knee lightly on your desk as you pull in your chair, or dropping a lighter on your desk) can, and usually will, cause this thing to disconnect meaning interrupted downloads, lost work, playback failure etc.
Unless this this will be connected to your home desktop and left on concrete permanent residence, I would maybe consider something else. VERY much far from portable.
Aside from that, everything else about the hard drive is fine.
