Exactly what I wanted: cheap, no hassle add-on storage. This was my first order from Walmart and I was actually very impressed with the whole process. My shipping was only $.97 and I had the package in my hand in 3 days, which is amazing in my book. UPS handed it off to my local post office which is a cool system, and there was no damage to the package or anything like that. The drive itself is very simple, basically just a black box with a USB port. The cable is, of course, included. Just plug it in and go. Two features I really appreciate are the activity indicator light and the little rubber feet on the bottom of the drive. Without feet drives like this tend to move around a bit when the disk spins, which can lead to an accidental fall. I did forget to format the drive my first time out and had to backtrack a little bit, so just remember: format it before you use it! (Your computer will likely prompt you if you don't, mine just didn't do it until I was a half hour in!) Also note that while the product is called a 500GB drive the actual formatted space is 465GB. All drives are like this, I just want to point it out for those that don't know so you aren't unpleasantly surprised. The speed is nice, build quality is good... Overall a great product, especially for how low the price is.
