USB 2.0 2 TB external drive works great right out of the box. It's formated for NTFS with no bloated software. Just the drive and ready to go! I'm currently using it to back up my desktop along with incremental back up's. No problems with the drive so far and it work's great! The price is reasonable for 2 TB with out the frills. I recommend it to anyone considering a back up drive or just to store files with out having to worry about running out of space.

Just took this out of the box and it is working great, took 10 seconds to detect and show up in computer panel, Barely Room Temp to the touch. I should mention that with the filing system it will only have 1.81 tb for your use but it is all worth it. It has a very decent weight to it, will make a good paper weight in 5-10 years when it burns out. I plan on using this to backup all of my itunes videos and music. Also my 20,000 home movies and pictures. Overall a great product I should Mention that the usb cable is extremely short i had to re-arrange my entire workstation just to make the cable reach. My advice is to upgrade to a longer cable. Also the transfer rate is on average 2.8 mb/s which is kinda bad but hey, you get what you pay for

I bought this to use on my MacBook Pro for the Time Machine. It works flawlessly. You cannot beat the amount of storage space for the price. I am extremely happy with this product.

This is a fantastic hard drive for someone who just wants more space (and lots of it) and doesn't need any frills or programs. I have a backup program that I use and only needed more space, and this more than provided it. I have no idea how I'm going to fill all of it up, but I am able to keep everything backed up easily and completely without ever worrying about running out of space, and that's fantastic. Highly recommended.

I don't know very much.. I am looking for external hard drive for a desktop with 200GB or more.

  • A. 1TB is 1000, 2TB is 2000GB, but when you plug in the HD it reserves a portion to disk which all drives do, for this 2TB HD it reserves about 200GB for itself!, i have three which have out performed my expectations, and i love the no included software for instant backups cause them programs can slow a pc down to the point of crashing!

  • A. 1TB=1000GB. Thus, 2TB=2000GB. If you are looking for "A hard drive with 200GB or more," I would suggest getting a different hard drive- something like 500GB should do the trick.

  • A. If you have a USB plug on your laptop, you can use this external hard drive. "Desktop" merely indicates the size of the hard drive inside - a 3.5" hard drive usually used in desktop computers. Laptops use 2.5" drives which, when put in external enclosures are called "portable" external hard drives.

  • A. Yes it can,however, it is powered by AC & not the USB port. Since the back-up is manual & not automatic, I don't think that's a deal breaker. I have a laptop & this is the unit I intend to buy from Wal-mart. GoodLuck.

  • A. Well, it will work on a laptop through the USB 2.0, which is what the newer computers have or USB 1.0 but at a slower rate. As far as portability goes, it's a bit bulky and not really meant to be too portable. I use this drive with my desktop since it can be placed on it's side or flat on top of the computer. If you looking for portability and easy to place in a pocket, this might be too large to carry around. Other than that, it should work great with a laptop.

  • A. The 'desktop' reference in the title just indicates that this HD is meant to sit on a desktop - e.g. it's designed to be stationary, not moved around / portable like laptop. it's heavier and larger than drives intended for carrying around with a laptop.
