This is a very solid external drive. I've copied my entire photo library very fast on USB 3.0. The USB 3.0 does really make a huge difference. Apart from the speed, the drive is just superb. It's plug and play, so was up and running immediately. The design is awesome. And as a nice bonus you also get 10GB free online wuala storage. I would highly recommend.
I would recommend this to a friend

Excellent external hard drive
The drive is pretty compact, and has an excellent design. It's dead silent, I don't even notice it's there. I had to touch it to check that it was running, when I first turned it on. The build quality is great. The drive seems to be very solid. The aluminum enclosure is perfect for heat dissipation. And I wouldn't say it's very heavy. After I did the first setup, which was a breeze, I copied 500GB of data right away. The transfer speed is good with USB 2.0. Will try USB 3.0 when I upgrade my computer. I'd recommend this drive without hesitation.
