Yea its a knockoff but it works as it should not out of the box tho the disk i got was blank. So in order to get the right drivers for the device u have to google how to do it I followed the instructions given by a fellow reviewer here on this page.
This amazing IOSafe 1TB drive is perfect I simply plugged the device into my laptop and it works flawlessly! Like others I also received an email from the CEO of IOSafe asking me to review the device! pretty cool if you ask me. This thing is also built like a tank! I've tried two WD drives an they both were crap out of the box neither worked at all. if you need a great drive then go with IOSafe everytime!!!!
