      I already enjoyed an "old" 320 Go StoreJet but I missed capacity.
      This one is THE pocket storage I was waiting for.
      With 1 To of storage, fast Usb 3 connectivity and full external protection while staying slim, I can carry "all" my computer with me. I mean I made a 750 Go partition only for MyPictures and have plenty of space for the MyDocuments partition !
      Great for traveling as well as a home backup.
      Only flaw, the Storejet Usb 3 connector. You need to carry (and not to forget it) the supplied special Usb cable.

      Worked fine until this month when it starting dismounting on its own. Now it refuses to mount at all, I can feel the drive spinning, but never mounts. Tried on 3 computers just in case it was a dead port issue, but same result.

      Guess it is time to contact the manufacturer for a return/replacement.

          This external storage drive is a handy dimension. The case construction is solid, though weighty. Have been able to use the drive for continuous backup without fail. Now if only it could record telepathically.

            Very good product. I dropped a previous external drive of another brand which failed to run after the drop. Then decided to buy this one. Already dropped couple of times, no problems so far. I have owned Transcend before. Very good. Highly recommended.

                PROS: Works right out of the box, a set-and-forget type of device. It's firmware reminds you to use the faster USB 3.0 connection.
                The rugged casing looks steady enought to protect the drive in short falls but I wouldn't test it.

                CONS: A 7200rpm drive would have been blazingly fast with the USB 3.0 connection.
                1TB fills up faster than you'd think especially with incremental backups.

                    I plugged the USBs into the back of my Mac Mini almost as soon as it arrived. The drive was spotted by the Mac Mini immediately and transferred nearly 300 GB of files in less than one hour with a simple drag and drop.

                    The color is a very lovely purple and I was pleased with the grippy feel of the case; it will stay put on the desk and not slide around. The case also feels like it would protect the drive in case of a short drop, but I don't think I'll deliberately test that part.

                    The only time the second USB cable is necessary is if your computer doesn't have enough power through the single plug. I plugged them both in anyway and had no issues whatsoever.

                    The drive was very quiet. The light blinked during the transfers and then remained solid in a sedentary state. I would recommend this drive with the caveat that I have not used it for more than a day so its longevity cannot be calculated yet.

                      I needed to store the contents of an old laptop on this hard drive in order to transfer it to a newer macbook. Taking full advantage of the USB 3.0 speeds, I was able to transfer over 100 gigs of media in around an hour. It is super quiet, and didn't heat up enough to worry me. The optional downloadable software was easy to understand and helped facilitate selective backups. It seems to be very durable, and is the perfect size to take with me. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a good amount of storage in a small durable package.

                          The product makes an excellent back-up medium. The speed is very good while the Transcend products, from my own use over the last 2-3 years, have proven to be exceptional. Coupled with BHPhotoVideo's impeccable service, this is a winner.

                              Worked fine until this month when it starting dismounting on its own. Now it refuses to mount at all, I can feel the drive spinning, but never mounts. Tried on 3 computers just in case it was a dead port issue, but same result.

                              Guess it is time to contact the manufacturer for a return/replacement.

                                I have 500GB Transend HD,which I find perfect. However, I store hundreds of thousands of photos and I needed more space. It took 5 hours to download 480GB of information from the old disc to the new one. It connects immediately, copying large files of photos (8GB) happens very quickly - about 3 min.
                                I have the disk with me all the time, so it is crucial that it is well protected. It is reliable, easy to use and fast. It doesn't get warm even when I use it actively for over an hour.

                                I already enjoyed an "old" 320 Go StoreJet but I missed capacity.
                                This one is THE pocket storage I was waiting for.
                                With 1 To of storage, fast Usb 3 connectivity and full external protection while staying slim, I can carry "all" my computer with me. I mean I made a 750 Go partition only for MyPictures and have plenty of space for the MyDocuments partition !
                                Great for traveling as well as a home backup.
                                Only flaw, the Storejet Usb 3 connector. You need to carry (and not to forget it) the supplied special Usb cable.
