I bought this usb drive to use with my digital photos. I work on a laptop and, because I take raw digital images, I wanted someplace to store my photos off of my machine. The logical solution was, of course, an external usb drive but, since my cat loves to jump on my lap or on the sofa when I am working, I worried about the possible damage to the drive from sudden movements. This was my solution to that problem. After reading some of the reviews I assumed that I would need two cables, one for data and one for power, and that there would be two usb connections on the drive. So, first off, let me be clear about what is and what is not needed to use this drive.

This drive itself has only a single usb 3.0 connection. The cable that comes with the drive is a Y cable with two connectors for the usb connections on the computer, but only one connection on the drive itself. As I said, the Y cable has two computer connections, but the wires are not the same. The thicker one is for data and the thinner one for power. So, to check the drive, I connected the usb connection on the drive and then first connected the data cable to the computer. To my surprise the drive spun up and my laptop identified it as a Transcend usb drive even though I had not, at this point, connected the power cable. Since I was surprised I did some checking and found out that the drive worked properly without the power connection to the computer being plugged in at all. I then checked the drive with the Y cable with both connections and the drive worked properly. I then tried the drive with a spare usb 3.0 cable I had for some other usb drives and the drive also worked properly.

Be sure to check the different prices on different sizes. At the time of writing the 1TB drive was only $10 more than the 500GB drive so worth the upgrade.

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 Mac OS Extended. 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.

I purchased this drive to replace an aging 320GB Western Digital portable hard drive, as it was too small, slow, and becoming unreliable. This Transcend drive was a great value on the deal of the day price, and it performs well in my use so far. The USB 3.0 speeds are great for large file transfers, easily topping 100 MB/s. I posted a CrystalDiskMark benchmark of this drive in the pictures section to give an idea of transfer speeds. As expected, the sequential reads/writes are great, but you won't notice much difference when copying lots of smaller files compared to a USB 2.0 drive. Most of my use so far is creating disk image backups of my computers, as well as normal file backup and transfer operations.

There are a couple of quirks with this hard drive. First, the drop protection does result in a noticeably larger and heavier device than a typical 2.5" hard drive. Also, the included cable has an extra USB connector in case your computer cannot supply necessary power through one port. In use with a USB 2 laptop and a USB 3 desktop, the single connection works just fine. Finally, it does come formatted as FAT32, which will need to be reformatted as NTFS if you will be transferring large files.

Overall, I bought this primarily for the price and USB 3 speeds, although the drop-proofing may come in handy one day. I generally prefer Western Digital drives, but my other Transcend products all work well so far.

Died after 14 months... It was never dropped or improperly handled. I've now bought two non-military-grade (because why pay more?) drives and have multiple backups.

Size: 1 TBColor: Black Verified Purchase
Massively disappointed.

This drive crashed the first time I tried a back up. It kept saying I had ejected the disk improperly when I wasn't anywhere near the computer and drive at all.

It was the technical support that really was annoying. The technical support literally said:
it could be hardware, software or the cable or my computer. I sent them the crash logs and the disk utility results.
They requested a step by step accounting of what I did and to try another cable. I sent the step by step info to them.
I tried another cable. (Which is a big deal since it is a special cable that utilizes two USB ports simultaneously-not something people have laying around) I have mutliple other hard drives and computers-i just liked that idea that this was tough since I carry them around. I haven't had this problem before. I asked how could I tell if it was a software or hardware problem. I asked if this was a problem they had heard of happening with Macs.

They didn't answer that question. Instead, they suggested that I send them a step by step accounting of what I did. Uh, did that already and it apparently was irrelevant. And I was just following the quick start directions so that was what I did.

It might be that I got a bad drive and I don't want to judge the product by one bad drive but the technical service?
Abysmal.

Dear J. Graham,

Sorry to hear about the external HDD problem, and the inconvenience caused to you.

To provide a better service, please provide the following information:
1. We would like to know if you try to plug the external HDD to another Mac computer, and if you get the same error?
2. Do the USB ports from your Mac computer work with other USB devices?
3. If you don't have any problem with USB ports and you try to plug the drive in other computers, so we can replace the drive since the external HDD is under warranty. Please call us to this number 714-279-1863, so we can assist you with the return.

Best regards
Captain Transcend.
