    "Go with the best...No issues at all...I am pleased with this drive as it has served me well so far, BUT I regret not spending the extra $ on the GOLD enterprise class drives as they are substantially less likely to lose all of your data due to a minor earthquake or someone bumping your PC... I will be purchasing a few GOLD drives as my primary means of backups as I do not trust these after hearing how many people have lost their data...So far so good, as I transition to having my files on a RAID on the network for easier access, I may buy a larger 10 TB drive later for a backup drive of the NAS data"
