A new hobby, machine embroidery, has been a load of fun but was eating up space on my hard drive to store the pattern files. Researched around and came up with the solution of an external drive. As my mom and I are both doing this, it allowed us to have a common storage spot for all of our files and freed up our computers. I placed the order on a Sunday night and by Thursday our package had arrived and we were in business. Installation was very straightforward. Has a lot of additional software in the installation that really isn't needed but that is really the only negative thing I have to say. The entire experience was great and we are still amazed that something not much bigger than my cell phone can hold so much.

I've had several portable drives (mostly custom by putting together a 2.5" hard drive and 3rd party case). The capacity is near the top end and the feedback color of green for USB 2.0 and blue for USB 3.0 is great feature. Note that Buffalo has a later edition of this drive that gets a lot of complaints about finicky connections. Not so, with this earlier model. It's also smaller than I expected.

Excellent product. USB 3.0 provides a very speedy response when transferring files to and from my laptop. No issues thus far with transferring files of any kind, movies, music, documents..etc. Smaller form factor compared to other external drives is a plus. Not needing a power adapter helps when you have to transport the drive and have one less cord to worry with.
