SimpleTech 320GB USB2.0 7200 RPM External Hard Drive
Thanks to the sleek, low-profile styling by famed Italian car designer Pininfarina, the SimpleDrive Desktop USB 2.0 External Hard Drive isn't just another external hard drive. The recipient of the same magic design touch and attention to fine details that helped turn Ferrari and Maserati into icons of the automotive world, the SimpleDrive Desktop will help turn your work space into a virtual art display while offering you up to 320 GB of backup storage for your computer files.
Get used to the staring when your colleagues visit your desk. This compact and elegant sapphire blue drive is as much a piece of fine art as a piece of robust hardware. But don't let the looks fool you. Beneath its cool and sleek exterior is a robust, high-capacity, single-drive solution that gives you the ability to store and backup tons of music, videos, photos and documents in a small footprint.
Featuring plug and play simplicity, and Mac and PC compatibility, the SimpleDrive Desktop features a hi-speed USB 2.0 interface for fast transfer of data at up to a 480 Mb/sec data transfer rate. Whether you want to increase the capacity of your desktop, or back up your valuable files quickly and securely, the SimpleDrive Desktop will perform for you with style. A built-in Kensington security lock lets you lock down your drive while you're away, and a built-in capacity meter keeps you abreast of your storage situation at all times.
Powerful Local and Online Backup Options
The SimpleDrive Desktop includes two backup options that will keep your mind at ease about your important data. With the included OneClick backup software, you have the option of either backing up and protecting all your files and folders, or selected ones, with a single click, or automatically. Either way, you'll have the peace of mind knowing your digital world is safe and protected.
But for the ultimate in protection, the SimpleDrive Desktop also offers the Fabrik Ultimate Backup solution that uploads your files to a secure, online server that will protect your data from real-world mishaps and offer near-real time protection without bogging down your computer. Fabrik's Ultimate Backup allows you to store up to 2 GB for free on one of its 448-bit encrypted servers, and for just a few dollars a month, you get unlimited capacity to securely store all of your important files and media collections offsite. Acting just like the drive's local backup software, you simply set Fabrik Ultimate Backup once, and it automatically and regularly backs up your content behind the scenes.
To keep your content private and confidential, all files are encrypted with 128-bit SSL encryption while in transit, with an option for a private encryption key. Fabrik's offsite 448-bit Blowfish encrypted servers are housed by a Fortune 500 company, ensuring file protection, security and peace of mind. So no matter what happens to your drive--a curious toddler, a spilled drink or natural disaster--your irreplaceable photos, music, videos and files will be safe and secure both offsite and online.
The SimpleDrive Desktop measures a scant 1.50 x 8.25 x 5.0 (WxLxD), is backed by a 1-year warranty, and comes with free, unlimited technical support.

Top customer reviews
These drives are fast and reliable. I have never run into any problems using them. The first 2 I bought were 500 GB, and the last 2 are 1 TB drives. I think they are a good bargain for the price. The 500 gig drives sell thru Amazon for about $90 and the 1 TB version goes for about $160, which I think is quite a deal. If you need a lot of hard drive storage space the 1 TB is the better deal (they hold about twice as much as the 500 gig drive). Based on my experience, I definitely recommend this drive.
It was easy to connect, set up, and begin using. It was very fast in backing up pictures and video, which was how I primarily used it. It would back up approximately 75-100 MB per second. One day, out of the blue, I received an error message stating that the drive was inaccessible. Today, the error said that the drive had a corrupted file and could not be accessed. I called Customer Service, waded through the voice menu, waited 20 minutes for a technician, only to be told that "nothing could be done, and that ANYTHING from a power failure to not clicking the Safely Remove Hardware icon in the system tray could have caused the drive to stop working".
Customer Service directed me to their website, told me to fill out their online RMA form. I followed all the directions and filled out every line. I received a confirmation page stating that SimpleTech would contact me within 24 hours to resolve the issue and replace the drive. I NEVER HEARD FROM THEM AGAIN.
MORAL AND LESSON LEARNED: DO NOT PURCHASE THIS PRODUCT. IF YOU DO, BE PREPARED TO LOSE YOUR DATA.
Do not trust any one device for your backup and storage. Use multiple sources and do not purchase products such as these with an increasingly poor history. I learned a valuable, time-consuming, and somewhat expensive lesson.
* Fairly small, good looking case
* Very quite
* Fairly inexpensive
* Has power switch
* Is fairly fast
We bought this drive to replace a defective WD MyBook (not recommended).
