1.5 TB storage
USB 3.0, and USB powered
16MB data buffer
For PC and MAC
I got this as my birthday present. Parents gave the perfect gift, a gift card to a tech store. I was in need of an external drive because I have no backups. I wanted something that was USB powered so I would not have to bring another power adapter when I travel, had at least 1 TB of storage, used USB 3.0, and was less than 150$.
I got everything I wanted out of it, except the price which was a little
above 150, but I still think its a great deal at 150-170$ This is the first device I've had that works on USB 3.0, which is faster and can carry more current then 2.0. Its been awhile since I've had to move a ton of data but overall it went faster then expected. I was able to move about 300GBs in about an hour.
One thing that annoyed me when looking up specs about this device is that I could not find a picture or specs on exactly what ports they used. I saw a lot of hard drives that had a "USB 3.0 adapter" or did not explicitly say if it was USB powered or not. So here's a picture of exactly what this device uses.
