  • decent for price.

    Cheap, probably not legit WD but thats fine. works just as good as any other. Slim, functioning, what else do you need? Case has good texture.
    assuming you want the cheapest HD for these specs, this HD will do. Approx half the price of those in stores.
    Overall nice product for price. No issues so far.
  • Excelent cost-benefit!!!

    - Price. I got this 2.5" 500GB SATA HD plus an enclosure for less than half the price I would pay only on the hard drive (no enclosure) here in Brazil.- Finishing. The damn thing is beautiful. Chrome on back and black piano on front. Not that it matters this much on a hardware piece, but it sure looks fine and matches the equipment I bought this for (a DVD player with USB ports) perfectly.- Dual USB cable (one for power) necessary on USB 1.1 connections (no power), but works just fine with only one plug on USB 2.0 systems- Pre-formatted on NTFS- Comes with pouch for scratch protection when transporting
    I bought this to plug on my LG DV4S2H "Black Eye" DVD player. My intention is to load this thing with XviD movies and TV shows to watch on TV. The DVD Player has only one USB port, I was afraid that it wouldn't work because of power issues, but the DVD player's USB port is 2.0, so I didn't needed an extra power adapter. on my PC I needed to plug both USBs.To use on my DVD Player, I needed to reformat this to FAT32, there's a Hewlett-Packard free utility that does this (WinXP, WinVista and Win7 do not offer the option to format such a large drive on FAT32, only exFAt or NTFS which are not compatible with other electronic appliances). You can find that utility on the web.
    Man, I plan to buy two more of these. One of them I will take apart just to get the hard drive for my netbook. Other will be used as a backup drive. This was really a pleasant surprise.

    Simple to use. No need the power supplier extra. Easy to carry (your bag or pocket). Good price and short time to arrive here in Brazil. I am using since march of 2012. No problems. I recommend.
    I recommend that you use the cable connected in two usb of your computer. This action gives more current (Amper) for your disc, mainly if you have a old computer. Some olds USB ports deliver less energy for your device.It is a good practice format your HD in NTFS, because if you have files with size more than 4G Bytes only is possible to save in your HD if the format is NTFS. See the pic in "Sistema de Arquivos: NTFS" ( translating = FILE SYSTEM: NTFS). Is very easy to do this: - Click with right botton in your HD, select the option "FORMAT" , select FILE SYSTEM NTFS and acceptance the operation. Wait some seconds, and after that you can use your HD normally.
    Ok!
  • Small, fast, durable

    Great hardrive for anything. Genuine Hitachi, pretty fast (limited by USB 2.0 speed).What about enclosure? .. I thought its bigger and less durable and sturdy.. I was really impress whn I opened it - extremely small, sleek, durable enclosure with hdd.
    Really impressed by the enclosure, as a part-time computer service company worker and hardware ethusiast, I haven't seen better enclosure thatn this. Will buy some more (everyone wants one :D)
    If you need decent external hardrive or other people admiring your hdd, buy one or more :DGood buy for money, best buy on the planet for quality and design.
