Color Name: BlackSize Name: 1 TB
At the time of writing this review this hard drive was $74 for the 1 TB model that is a decent price for a USB powered (meaning you don't need to plug it into the wall to run this hard drive) external hard drive.

If you're a Mac user setting this hard drive up with your computer is super easy follow these steps.

1. Plug in the hard drive
2. Open up disk utility found in your applications folder inside the utilities folder
3. Next select the newly plugged in a hard drive and on the right-hand side you should see partition click on that.
4. Then inside that screen on the partition layout drop-down choose how many partitions you'd like to set up. I generally go with one partition and just use folders to organize my files.
5. Then on the right-hand side you can name the partitions and select the format. If you want your hard drive to work with your Mac for doing Time Machine backups (which I highly recommend) choose NTFS format. Sometimes it's good to make two partitions and one using "MS-DOS fat" if you might be transferring files to and from a Windows machine (I do this with my friends as many of them run Windows so I have a little partition for giving them video files and the like). The reason is Windows machines and Macs can read and write to the "MS-DOS fat" format but your files will need to be under 4 GB each as that's the maximum file size it can hold.
6. Then click apply and your Mac will create all the partitions you wanted and you're good to go.

My wife likes to watch her tv shows on the go. She is VERY rough on her electronics and broke my last 3tb drive bringing it back and forth with her. When I saw the deal of the day on this drive I snatched up two. One for her to use transporting her tv shows and e-books around and one for me to use to move files between laptops. I have to say I am very pleased with the purchase.

The drive is small, about the size of a Note 2 phone, but slightly thicker. It is light and compact enough to throw in your pocket. It is also durable. I have watched the wifey drop it on a few occasions and it has gone on to work without a hiccup. That shows that the protection inside is doing its job.

Speed is another plus for this unit. I was able to move a 100 GB folder containing a large number of pictures within minutes.

The final plus in my opinion is the fact that it is USB powered. My larger drives (2TB-3TB) all require power supplies and are not very portable. This one slips in the pocket and plugs into any machine you have that is USB compatible.

Overall, a great product if you are looking to backup or move items or, more importantly, if you need to transport data often and want it to be protected from drops or getting banged around.

Color Name: BlackSize Name: 1 TB Verified Purchase
I would give 5 stars but the best I can live with is 4 seeing as I have only had the drive a few months and use it occasionally. I use it to backup Work and Personal data from the DELL PC at my home office; it is the second drive I do this with, since I did have a passport style drive conk out on me a couple years back, just when I needed it most. So, I have my data backed up nowadays on two separate USB drives, including this one, and periodically swap them out.

The price point is competitive for what else was on offer during purchase. It's the first time I have used the Transcend range, so if anything changes in the coming months, I'll be sure to post an update for you. I do recommend the product based on short-term use and reliability. BTW: I'm using the drive in short bursts only. The drive does not make any noticeable noise and sits quietly next to the PC, minding its own business, until the backup software kicks-in 3 times a week (I use Cobian, its free and very reliable). I'm also backing up only file or folder ("differential") changes, so after the initial backup when I got the Transcend, the data and run time is probably a GB or so and about 5 minutes on average. Please don't use this as a measurement of read/write performance; this will be determined by your own PC, USB interface (2.0 or 3.0) and OS, Processor, and RAM on your machine. Best to do separate research for detailed read/write stats. Hope that helps!

UPDATE March 2014: So far, no real issues, although one thing came to light which I had overlooked. When you use the drive for the first time, ask yourself what format you want the drive to be. For example, if like me you are running 64-bit Windows 8.

Love this drive! Plug and play! No setup, no formatting, just plug it in and my computer recognized it within a few seconds and I was using it. It is powered by the computer USB connection so no extra power cable needed. There is also software on their website you can down load so you can automate backing up your data onto the drive. How much easier can it be?

My plan is to back up my desktop data onto this drive. Then when I want/need to I can use it with my laptop. Also, it's quite small, about the size of a larger cell phone. So the next time I visit my folks I can easily take this with me and show off pictures of my house, etc.--something I've not been able to do. I have pictures going back for over 10 years that they haven't seen, I am so excited by this!
