When I originally ordered this external hard drive I was expecting it to be alot bigger than what it was when it arrived at my doorstep.
The HDD is typically speaking, the same size as a Parker pen and holds an incredible amount of data upto 500GB, although with every HDD you don't ALWAYS get the complete amount, so in this case it's 486GB not 500GB but who cares, it's still alot of space available for movies, music and more.
The speed of this HDD is consistant and with it being SATA instead of IDE it takes less time to transfer data to and from the hard drive and absolutely perfect for people on the move who dont want to take their desktop PC with them you can just take your entire PC on a small modern sleek HDD like this.
It's incredibly easy to assemble and 'pop' into your computer using a spare USB 2.0 slot, just plug the USB wire into the HDD and then into your USB port and that's it - all ready to go!
Packaging was moderate but no REAL protection from possible bumps and falls in the back of the wagon on its journey to me, packed using a medium-sized post 'bag' and the product could of been easily damaged due to this.
Apart from that, it's a perfect little hard drive for those that don't want to spend more on an internal hard drive or for those that like their data portable and not fixed into a desktop PC/laptop.
Worth the buy.
