I've bought it in sold, need more space to store film. A very HDD, high speed in USB3 and very hard to broke (my cat push it out of the desk)I recommand it for everone that need more space.
Bought it planning on using it as easy expansion (all my SATA spots were full). I used it for about a week via USB and it worked fine but I got annoyed with it sitting on my desk. So I pulled it apart and stuck the drive in the HTPC, and that went fine if anybody was wondering (no weird encryption or anything).
First five days I had this hard drive were fine and dandy ... I was moving data onto this bad boy at USB 3.0 speeds. Then one day I plugged the drive in and BEEEEP, hard drive failed. I lost 1.5 TB of movies and tons of photos :m
I pretty much covered everything in the pros and cons. Regarding the software, it was pretty good. However, the backup function looked like it only backed up entire folders such as your Music, Pictures, Videos etc. It didn't let me choose the subfolders so I ended up just copy/pasting what I wanted to backup. It worked like a charm. All in all I was very impressed with what I got for 150$.
I actually got the 4TB version elsewhere so I'm essentially reviewing that one. All I did was transfer large 4GB+ media files to it until it was about 95% full and then installed XBMC in portable mode to create an epic media drive that can be used on any computer. Used USB 3.0 with Teracopy and saw and average of about 130MB/s, sometimes jumping to 170MB/s and down to about 100MB/s. No need to mess around in Windows Disk Manager before hand (Windows 7), it just worked out of the box. No comments on the software that it comes with as I had no use for it.
