      When debating to upgrade my 500 MB Passport I knew I was looking at at least 2 TB of storage and a USB 3.0 powered portable external hard drive.Like my other Passport, this is a solid build and will be connected to my laptop unless I need to take it somewhere. Very unobtrusive. Love the color. Not sure if for the extra money it's worth the cloud storage, but it is slick.If you're looking for benchmarks, here they are:-----------------------------------------------------------------------CrystalDiskMark 3.0.2 x64 (C) 2007-2013 hiyohiyo Crystal Dew World : MB/s = 1,000,000 byte/s [SATA/300 = 300,000,000 byte/s] Sequential Read : 111.920 MB/s Sequential Write : 107.535 MB/s Random Read 512KB : 40.201 MB/s Random Write 512KB : 55.535 MB/s Random Read 4KB (QD=1) : 0.534 MB/s [ 130.4 IOPS] Random Write 4KB (QD=1) : 1.324 MB/s [ 323.2 IOPS] Random Read 4KB (QD=32) : 0.582 MB/s [ 142.0 IOPS] Random Write 4KB (QD=32) : 1.358 MB/s [ 331.4 IOPS] Test : 1000 MB [G: 0.0% (0.4/1863.0 GB)] (x5) Date : 2013/08/25 21:39:14 OS : Windows 7 Home Premium Edition SP1 [6.1 Build 7601] (x64)I love having an external hard drive power through the USB port. The Essentials line was a little cumbersome trying to plug things in with all the other devices out there.Look forward to backing up my system, my 18,000 songs,am still having close to a terabyte left for years to come.

      As for the products performance, it works just fine. I was a little disappointed though when the product was bigger than i expected when it arrived. In the picture they are actually showing the 1TB model, the 2TB is actually twice the height. So, beware, if you are looking for a tiny drive, you will prob. be in for a shock when it arrives. Also, from the picture, it appears to be made with a metal outer shell, but it's just plastic colored to look metal. The name "titanium" was misleading. I'm sure this is a great product functionally, but i was really hoping for a super small heavy duty drive, and it turned out to not be what i had hoped for.

            Small, fast, reliable, USB powered, large capacity mobile hard drive. Plenty of room for all your digital stuff. Doesn't overheat, virtually silent and fast due to USB-3 connection. Like it a lot! :)

                                              Great drive for quick back-ups. I keep it in my bag to always have it on-hand. Upon arrival, I reformatted to ExFAT (on my Mac)so it will read/write on a Mac and PC. The only limitation is the PC has a 2GB file limit.

                                                As a photographer either doing commercial work or my fine art; it is always important to back up all your work. This hard drive is great and holds all my raw photos that I take off my Mac.

                                                          PROS - USB powered and 2 TB worth of data storage - what else could you want? does not take up a lot of desk space. CONS - wish the included cables were longer!
