Very powerful for it's size!
from Queens, NY
This hard drive is great! USB 3.0 speeds are so awesome. On my Dell XPS 12, which has an SSD, I get up to 110 MB/s read and up to 92 MB/s write. On my Gateway DX4300, which has a 7200 RPM hard drive, I get about 90 MB/s read and up to 75 MB/s write. The size of this drive is very small for all the features it has! Normal external HDs are quite a bit bigger, but this one is 2TB, USB-powered, and very fast for such a little device!My only concern is the random light clicking noises this thing makes. They're more frequent during heavier tasks, like copying a lot of files or running a virtual machine from the drive. I've been told that clicking noises mean the drive is starting to fail and will die soon, although I have also been told that it is normal for some drives. So far this thing is working fine and the 5-6 hour sector checking test passed without any issues, so I assume the clicking noises are normal. The included 1FT cable is fine for laptops and tablets because they are on a table, but is too short for a desktop. My desktop is kept under a table. I had to buy a 3FT cable to place the drive on my table. Also, keep in mind that the actual formatted capacity is 1.84 TB.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
