I was impressed for the price I actually paid! Can put some music on it or make quick backup without having to plug two wire since the power goes through the usb... mine came with a toshiba harddrive in it so it is good quality!
I got this hard drive because it was on weekend deal for $45. Terrific price for 500GB. Once I plug it to my computer, it didn't work. The problem? the drive itself was not attached to the controller inside! I believe it is not that hard to connect the hard drive to the controller when you put it in the enclosure. Any way, it works like a charm after fixing that problem.
Don't understand the point of USB 3 on this. It is a consumer grade hard drive, not a solid state. Seems like a marketing gimmick by slapping USB 3.0 on this. It won't make it any faster if you think USB 3.0 is AMAZING.
This is my first time getting an external and I must say, it was worth the money. It's very small and compact making it very portable. The USB 3.0 on this thing is just amazing! I recommend this any first-time external buyers!
Looking at the drive inside. it is a Toshiba MQ01ABD050. It is excellent value. consider, it is very hard to get Toshiba 2.5 drive and it is very fast.
I've got two. both of them are Toshiba drive manufactured on Jul2012 from Philippine. NOT from China. You know nearly all Seagate hard drive or any hard drive from China have questionable quality.
