Drive arrived quickly with no issues. We hooked it up to a new XBOX and it saw the drive right away. With the USB3.0 access on the External drive when playing games on the xbox you cant tell the difference between installing games on the external drive or installing them on the internal drive.
I've had this for quite a while now. It fell of my desk 1 time and now it works sometimes. I have to keep repositioning it until it comes on and not move it until the transfer is complete, or it will shut off again. Just don't drop it! I'll try a newer drive.
I use this mostly for photo and video backups, but I've recently been adding some old applications that I have as ISOs and stick them in an "apps" folder. Never had a problem and it reads and writes fast with USB 3.0. I've shot thousands of RAW and DNG photos as well as plenty of 4k video and I've only used about 1/3 of the space so far,
It could have been better having a 7800 or 10k RPM drive instead of a 5400 RPM drive given the USB3 connectivity. Works great hooked up to an **** router as a media storage device using the **** server to share media around the house to various device.
