    This drive was great -- -- for the 18 months or so that it worked. Then I plugged it in for an update and heard the dreaded grinding and clicking.

    I was able to pull the photos off before it totally failed, so that's a plus. But a portable drive that wasn't ever tossed into a laptop bag should have lasted a lot longer than 18 months.
