    "Good HD...Nice HD...Reasonably fast portable hard drive, I got it for the encryption capability which was not available on the Easy Store....4TB is plenty of space for me so far and having a drive that runs off of just a USB cable means that I can access it at work or home without dragging around a power supply."

    "not bad...Good HD...Speed is very good for a 5400RPM drive, and the hardware encryption is a nice handy feature in case you're storing personal files on it and it gets lost/stolen....I've installed a free version on a USB connected hard drive for years, and since the external hard drives are not turned on and off very often they seem to last much longer just running constantly."
