Top Customer Reviews
Not much to say - Does what it's supposed to do. Setup was easy and went exactly as described on the half-page quick start guide. Have only had it for a few days, but working perfectly so far. It's a bit slow writing big batches of files. Manufacturer spec is 'up to' 90 Mb/sec., but I am not getting near that in practice. The speed is not a complaint for me, however, it's an acceptable trade-off. The unit works on my 2008 Acer laptop without the Y cable. The cable appears to be of high quality. It was good of them to include it, and not sell it separately.
The unit comes with a stretchy sleeve that will protect it from dust, and maybe the most minor bumps and scratches. If you are going to buy a better case, remember that the unit has squared-off edges, so will need a somewhat roomy case. Good GPS cases can be had for under $20.
The complete manual is on the disk. Print this out first thing. There is info in there you could possibly need, and you don't want it encrypted if the drive eventually gives you trouble.
Overall a good product. No surprises.
When I first got this drive I was looking for the software disk to install to make it work. Guess what, there is no software needed and no disk. So then I tried it with my system first (Win XP) and worked great. I went to my daughters Mac entered my pin number and worked great as well.
