However, this is not a perfect hard drive, there is one error that I could not figure out why. Whenever I tried to move a large (2-4 GB) compressed and video file. An error message would pop up and stating that the hard drive is full. But the hard drive still had 500 GB space. No issues with small files. Other than that this is a great hard drive to have.
One point I must say is that the lone green light in the front DOES blink to indicate HD activity. Not sure if this is a new 'feature', but it goes against one of the most common criticisms I've seen in these reviews.
I have mine formatted to WBFS and am backing up my games right now. I liked the speed and external power options compared to the smaller, portable USB drives out there.
Formats to 1.81TB NTFS although it comes pre-formatted with FAT32. USB 2.0 transfer rates are typical 30MB/s. Comes with Nero BackItUp 4 Essentials software although I did not need it.
USB cable is very short, about 24-inches in length. AC adapter is small and power cable is thin and long, about 60-inches in length.
Update 8/11/2011: I have purchased 3 of these total. All of them have Samsung hard drives internally. They all still work without a problem. Eventually they won't be using Samsung drives anymore as Samsung sold their hard drive division to Seagate. So I will probably buy a few more just to have the Samsung drives before they switch out to a different brand for the OEM.
Still highly recommend!
