    "Great HD...Great drive...But it was one of the few I found that has an ON/OFF SWITCH - a very important feature to me, since switching on the drive only when I want to back up saves greatly on wear on the drive, as opposed to other drives which are left running full time....Transfer took quite a long time but it was solid with absolutely no errors plus I didn't even feel that this drive was heated at all."
