Warning to 64-bit OS users
on 30 November 2011
This product is very small, light, a good price, and perfectly functional. On 32-bit Operating Systems!
If you are buying this and are planning to use it with a 64-bit OS, navigate away from here immediately as the driver software will not be able to install, thus resulting in you winding up with a useless piece of black plastic.
I have personally made this mistake but luckily I also have a PC running a 32-bit OS so I was able to verify that the HDD was not malfunctional. But still, I am very angry I wasted my money to find that this drive is not compatible with what I intended to use it for.
Once again, if you're looking for a very well priced and very well built External HDD to use with a 32-bit Operating System, by all means go for this product.
However if you're planning to use an External HDD with a 64-bit Operating System, avoid this product!
The only things keeping it from 1 star in my review are the facts that it was delivered to me 24 hours early, and it works flawlessly with my 32-bit OS computer.
