Good functionality with minor problems
on December 6, 2004
As an external hard drive it works fine, espically for the price; I paid one hundred fifty at a local store. No noise or anything so far :) It just sits there, and shows up as another drive, no big deal.
I have two complaints though: the manual is totally worthless. This normally wouldn't bother me too much, but this is actually the worst manual I've seen. Not helpful at all. You have to use thier web support (which is actually pretty good, and free), as the manual doesn't explain anything.
Also, the power button is located in the back of the unit, rather than on front or up top, where it would be easier to get to.
Other than that, it's a good drive, particularly at less than a dollar a gigabyte. Great portable storage to have, great for backups, etc. and the bundled Norton Ghost is great. It's got the functionality of an external hard drive for a very good price.
