        Comments about Sony 500 GB Portable USB 3.0 External Hard Disk Drive:

        I am a serious amateur photographer who shoots only in RAW mode and treasure my conversions to DNG with Photoshop... I have found out throughout a long time of using Sony products that they are precise, reliable and long lasting... This external hard drive is not exception and I use it to back up all my photo collections.
