Rated 1 out of 5 by techTex Failed after 3 months
This drive failed after 3 months. Dell wouldn't replace and the cost to repair was as much as a new drive. I'm a computer tech and won't be using Dell products again. Back to LaCie or Seagate.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Telset Usb 3.0 speed review
Pros: On average I was getting about 80MB per second transferring my steam folder for backup it was 93GB took 20 minutes instead of over an hour with usb2. Oddly the sequential read/write is the same at 103.8 MB per second, the 512k read/write is 37.44/44.55MB per second, the 4k read/write is 0.45/0.92MB per second. The usb 3.0 cable is 18 inches long which is good for me
Cons: None yet as I just got it today.
Other thoughts: The drive inside is ST500LM012 HN-M500MBB Which is a Seagate Momentus drive
Rated 5 out of 5 by cindy13 nice ext. hard drive
simple to use. compact, almost flat , approx. the size of a pack of cigarettes so it is easy for transportation. great product for the money.. I am very happy with mine.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stacymomof3 So far, so good! I purchased this drive to automatically back up my files. Couldn't be easier to use, plug in the USB cord and follow simple instructions. More than enough room to backup and protect family photos and files, this is a no brainier!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Wknight40 Only half of what I expected
Not 100% compatible with Mac out of the box. Granted no where in the specs does it say that it is Mac/Apple compatible. The Mac will read it but cannot write to it at the moment. It could be because of the format. Read speeds are fast on the Mac though. Works well on a Inspirion Duo.
