Consumer Ratings & Reviews
Got it for 6yrs now. Not used much but still works fine. Just did the fw update

This drive does the job nicely. It works fine under Windows 7. The 3 users (2 of whom claim to be 'experts') that gave poor reviews simply have not updated the firmware on their drive. It takes a coup...

‘‘No issues. Nothing exciting, just works.’’
Been using this drive for a few years. 3 os changes and not a single issue/problem. Currently Win7 64bit.
