Within a few weeks of normal use, plugging in, and unplugging HD from my laptop, I discovered that the drive no longer could be recognized by any computer. The USB connection/cord had failed after a few weeks of use. I had babied this one since my 1TB contained EVERYTHING of mine, and is no longer. My old Western Digital drive I have had for years, and I've abused, dropped, and nearly punted across the room before, and it still performs like a champ.
Don't buy this. The solder connections are worthless, and WILL fail on you, taking all your precious data along with it.
