      I bought several of this drive to serve as immediate and backup storage of music and movies. The transfer speed of the 3.0 USB capability meets expectations and the speed of the 2.0 compatability exceeds them. The USB hub also serves as the power source, which cuts down on the tangly wire mess. On top of the performance and streamlining benefits, the drive is built to military grade shock specifications, and has thus far proved itself by surviving several bumps and bangs on the subway, not to mention a two-foot drop that rendered a less stalwart drive corrupt. In short, the drive rocks and acts like one too.

      First, I apologize for any rambling here. You will see that I am not too happy about this product, or my ability to understand how to correctly use it.Here is my review without screen prints.Storejet 25M TS1TSJ25M 1 TB external hard drive.My opinion: I do not recommend the product due to #3, #4 below, otherwise it is acceptable and can use some improvements.1. Some issues which should be explained in the documentation.a. How to handle "file in use" error message which prevents successful backup.b. Explain what happens when you choose "delete temporary files."c. How do you avoid getting the "Close Outlook" message when Outlook is not open.d. What the backup file will be named and what directory name will be used. Seems that the Backup task name is the folder name he builds with a subdirectory named the date/time of the backup. How does that relate to restore? Who knows. If I did I might understand why the restore failed.d. How to restore and resolve restore problems. Just contacting the user forum is really not a good enough answer. 2. Backup software improvements:a. Error message trouble shooting explanations.b. Provide the ability to also choose and exclude individual files.c. Provide full screen expansion to more easily choose folders & files to backup.3. The "file in use" issue is a product killer. 4. Restore failure is a product killer.Note: the product model and serial number are not on the rubber housing. Is it on the actual drive under the rubber covering? Remove the covering? How easy is it to get that back on? If it is on the actual drive, then it should also be on covering as well.Note: Just found the user manual at their web site, . If it can be obtained without registration or buying the product then I suggest reading you read it before buying the product! Be sure a single USB 3.0 port will handle the external drive.What I have done. 1. Copied all Storejet folders and files to my C: drive.2. Executed the Storejet formatter from the C: drive to make the Storejet an NTFS drive.3. Create a Storejet backup task to backup c:\users\myname\**4. Ran the backup task. It failed due to "file in use." From the event log the backup failed Since I am backing up the "myname" folder and NTUSER.DAT does not exist in that folder, it seems like this is not a user created problem.1. QQQ: If the backup failed on actual user files how can they be excluded? The product does not allow for select or deselect of individual files.Despite having an incomplete backup, I tried to restore it, or at least bein that process. The restore failed saying he couldn't find the file.

              I had bought the 5ooGB version with USB 2.0 connection. That one works fairly well, but this one works even better. It's noticeably faster. Occasionally their is some lag, but I think that is more from my chromebook than the StoreJet. I often watch movies from it, and they play fine. I'm currently in Africa, so it has to contend with temperatures above 100 degrees Fahrenheit, tons of dust, and greater-than-average moisture. It makes no sound, and it seems sturdy, so I'm not too worried about breaking it. I've had no problems after about 8 months of use, though a friend has one (also in Africa), and his has started to have difficulties showing up on his computer, but I don't know how long he's had it or how well he takes care of it.

                          These days, 1TB is about the minimum most people would need for any sort of backup, and it's an absolute minimum for people in the digital AV industry.Well, this one works fine, looks nice, and is about $ less than most portable 1TB devices. It seems to be a quality device, meets mil-spec drop standards - I think it's pretty much everything anyone could want in a portable hard drive.I don't use the included software, so I can't comment on that. Overall I'd definitely buy it again, especially at this price!

                            We have had the StoreJet for a short period of time but so far we are impressed. We are using it as a backup on a PC. It is lightweight and fast and we love that it has the non-skid surface and seems quite durable.

                                      Used for portable photo library. Compact, fast, quiet. If it is durable as advertised I will be very pleased.

                                        This external hard drive works great on my MacBook Pro. It is very small and easy to transport. I don't have anything bad to say about this product. It does everything I need it for and it's well worth the price.

                                              So far so good. This is my first external harddrive. While some of the reviews mentioned the drive as being overweight, who cares? It's not a cell phone or something you go jogging with. Sure it's a little heavier than other devices, but feels much more sturdy. Hope it keeps.

                                                I've used this brand and model before and no problems ever occurred. The matte finish helps from sliding off surfaces and the military grade drop proof status is comforting, considering I've lost my last hard drive to a short fall from my desk. It's light and durable. I've used it for 3+ years and stored 10000s of photos or video with lots of space left today.

                                                    This hard drive is optimal for frequent travelers who need to reliably access their data while they are away from home. The drive is robust and stable, and can withstand a certain level of stress when put in a laptop bag/backpack that's squeezed or ungently handled. I had other portable drives break all the time, but not this one. Also, although it supports USB3.0, it does not need an additional AC adapter but instead comes with a cable that has two USB plugs for the laptop. Therefore, you won't need to carry an additional AC adapter around at all times.
                                                    Although the drive is slightly bigger than some other harddrives of the same capacity (because it has a protective casing) it is not really heavier. The far superior robustness of this drive justifies the slightly increased dimensions.

                                                    Great investment, A+

                                                      Used for secondary back-up of pictures. Easy to use and great for the money. Haven't dropped it or banged it yet but with the failure of our WD 1TB drive, I wanted something more rugged as I don't know why the other drive stopped working. So far so good. I'm at 1 month in. I like how it comes with two cables USB 2 and 3 as I won't have to worry about the near future of not having a usb2 port/cable.

                                                            Small compact and justy nifty looking. Not sure about having to take up two USB ports though little combersome, but if you don't mind your laptop looking like it's being eaten alive by a cyborg octopus then NP. ;-) whew now I have a shot at 1,000 bucks.

                                                              I put my stuff on the hard drive, and it's still there. Transferred pretty fast, but I only have USB 2.0 ports on my computer. Good drive, as long as it doesn't break. Seems solid though
