The Dualie works well and as advertised. The base station is a powered USB hub that includes two USB ports as well as mini USB to connect the hard drive and a dock connector to plug in an iPod or iPhone or iPod Touch. While the hard drive is installed in the Dualie, it will only operate using USB. Separately, the hard drive can also be connected using Firewire 400 or 800 and the cables are included. I am using the dock as a hub for another external hard drive (plugged into on of the USB ports) and to charge my iPod shuffle (using the second USB port) and then to charge my iPod in the dock when needed. This is really two products, a specialized USB hub that is the dock and a functional standalone 500GB hard drive.

Hard Drive Looks Great. the back of the hard drive has a nice silver/aluminum? Still feels very durable keep in mind. the front(black part) is hard yet it feels almost like felt, most likely some type of rubber that gives it the texture. There is a nice blue glow that flashes whenever the HD is in use. The two seperate USB ports deffinately come in handy since it does take up one of your USB ports. Having a netbook, this deffinately makes a difference. I have just recieved this item and just posted the poor image qualities; if any changes I shall be back to report. Being as I have a "refurb" device, No scratches that I've noticed and all the parts seem to be intact like new and not missing any cables. Great Refurbished Product so far.

I am not super computer savy but I was able to open this up, plug it into my computer and configure it to windows with no problems. I was also able to move all of my music and photo files to it by just clicking and dragging. If you aren't looking for something with a lot of bells and whistles then this is a great hard drive. the dock is also very convenient, makes it nice to be able to plug in my iPod touch and not have to use a second USB slot on my laptop.
