    "good !...Love it...I was in need of a backup support, because my pic crash and I lost information, so I research and seen this sea gate backup plus had a high ratings and I also compare others and this one was a good selection, it is portable compact convent for traveling, just missing a good case to protect it other than that it works so far....I used it to upgrade my PS4 hard drive(500g) and got it for a great price.The ordering process was smooth and uneventful.The drive itself was exactly what I was looking for and to swap out the drives was very easy.I'm a happy camper!"

    "A gem...I love...I've a decent degree and certificates in applied sciences but I don't like memorization of flow charts so I can sort my PC and external drives out but I hate it ALL I want to do is plug, play and forget about it and this unit does that for me and more.I would give it 5 stars but I've had drives fail and lost TB's of data so I'm keeping my fingers crossed so far I've 4 older WD Externals all still working 4 yrs later....I have the 4tb and 1tb HDD pluged into a #4 Port Sabrent USB 3.0 Powered Hub and I replaced both their stock Type A to Micro B cables with premium gold plated UGreen Micro B cables, but overall im very happy with this buy and for $79.99 im not complaining ecspecially since I almost bought the green Seagate Game Drive 4tb for $120."
