    16GB storage space is awesome, it's just what I need to store all my work documents and carry project files home and back. With US 16GB storage space is awesome, it's just what I need to store all my work documents and carry project files home and back. With USB 3.0 connection there is no hang time, so transferring files is really speedy. The drive is plug and play, with some options for automatic backup, encryption and cloud storage. No complaints from me. I've had it for almost a year now.

    It was only after my drive stopped working within two weeks of purchase that I read the reviews. The one-star reviews accurately It was only after my drive stopped working within two weeks of purchase that I read the reviews. The one-star reviews accurately reflect my experience. I had written data on the rugged drive. I then deleted the source. Walked over to the computer that I was going to copy it to, and then the drive was never recognized again. I tried about 3 different computers. It really did stop working.

    If the drive actually works, only use it as a shuttle drive to immediately copy the data to another location. Don't delete the source data until you are sure that the data has been copied to another location.

    The drive really is fast when it works.

    I was able to exchange the drive for a similar model at the Apple store. I'm going to see how many weeks of usage I can get out of this one.
