I thought there was a pricing error at first, I mean come on now, $27 for a 500G external hard drive is an incredible deal. I had to snatch up 4 of these pronto. Super easy to install and blazing fast transfer speeds. I love this store!

Backed up entire system in 10 minutes with usb 2.0 . !! Comes with back up software pre loaded on drive. This takes up space you might need. USB cable is way too short. I'll bet the longer ones are expensive.

Gave this as a holiday gift and it was well received. The device seems very intuitive, easy to guide through and begin storing all your stuff. It's plug and play. Really can't go wrong with this and is pretty competive in a crowded market! Buy this - don't sleep on it!

Saved me! I had an internal hard drive failing and got this to use as a start up disk. Reformatted EASILY for a mac and reinstalled all new startup software etc. Also, (thankfully on a MAC), migration of all data went smooth. Took quite awhile since this is a USB drive, (not like if it were a firewire), but it all worked and works just fine. Certainly a lot less expensive than having to take it to the shop right away.
