  • Q: Is the housing metal or plastic, and does it get hot during extended use or during transfers?  (1 Answer)

    • AIt is a plastic inner drive housing inserted into a metal outer case housing. I transferred over 500 gigabytes of images in one setting and it was a little warm but not at all hot. The drive is the type that slides forward ( push-up) from the outer housing. The first time it was very tight and I thought it may be defective but I just forced it in and out several times until it worked smoothly. I suspect the plastic housing on the drive was designed purposely to be a tight fit into the metal outer case housing. Overall the drive works great and I am very satisfied. Hope this helps.

  • Q: Will this item ever be available?  (1 Answer)

    • AI was foolish enough to buy 1 of these and then a year later another 1. Both were horrible. The data transfer rates in a Read operation were relatively slow for a USB 3 drive but weren't that bad. However, the Write rate is abysmal. It was supposed to do 70 MB/s or higher but my experience was less than 1 MB/s on average, slower than any of my old USB 2 thumb drives. the only good thing about these drives is 1/2 terrabyte but I don't think I have enough time in my life to wait for it to be filled up with files.
