Transcend 640GB StoreJet 2.5 inch - died after 14 mths,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Transcend 640GB StoreJet Mobile 2.5 inch USB 2.0 Portable Hard Disk Drive (Personal Computers)
Disappointed with this drive. Worked fine for 14 mths....then simply died, no warnings/indications that there was any problem. The unit was never moved, sat on a desk next to the computer it backed up, had plenty of ventilation, so no physical reason for the fail. The drive was used for backing up the entire PC drive, so with lots of private details such as banking etc, returning was not an option (even if Amazon had offered - and there's no reason for them to offer as the drive was outside its 12 month warrantee anyway). Fortunately, I had a spare ITB drive, so backed up my PC to the new drive immediately. Had this been a backup of a drive no longer in use, ALL data would have been lost, so I consider myself lucky on this occasion that I only lost the cost of the drive.
So in conclusion, assuming that the drive died on a 'drives do occasionally fail' basis, I can only recommend this drive as a backup for a PC in use (where the chances of both drives failing are fairly remote), but strongly recommend not buying this for backup of drives/files that will no longer be also stored on additional drives (working or archive).
