    "good !...I like....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!"
