      I bought this product because there was a discount on it and I needed extra portable storage. I pretty satisfied with it, appart the usb connector/cable on the disk side. It tends to detach itself. The speed is good in average accounting you're using a USB 3.0 port.

        Ultra Portable, fast throughput. Can't say much on it's build, a bit flimsy but 5 stars nontheless. Like the summary says, fast read/write rate. Recommended.

                                I bought this product because there was a discount on it and I needed extra portable storage. I pretty satisfied with it, appart the usb connector/cable on the disk side. It tends to detach itself. The speed is good in average accounting you're using a USB 3.0 port.

                                    Fits the need for small size big capacity storage extremely well. Easy to use. For me it was "plug and play" perfect.
