2TB green drive is ok

2011-10-16
By DC

made some noises that had me worried when i first got it, formatted the drive and its been ok since. I use the ESATA and for me it averages about a 45MB/s transfer rate which is not too bad. I thought I would get less performance since it is a green HD, I had a regular version of the same hard drive a year ago and see no real difference between the two. A decent buy for $100

not bait and switch but price didn’t work out

2010-08-04
By Michael Elliott

I bought the drive based on the price after rebates. I received the box and plugged in the drive to see if it worked ok and it did. I had several things going on in my life at the time and by the time I printed out the rebate info the window had already passed to get them. Not entirely the fault of the store but I can’t believe the 20 day limit to qualify.

Bad Lifespan - Not Worth the Cost

2013-12-15
By sbjt

Used with Macbook, then Macbook Pro. I have had this product for about two-and-a-half years. It's worked fine for a while, but a couple of months ago I accidentally tapped the computer end (i.e. the 'A' part) of the USB cable which moved, but did not disconnect the cable, caused the drive to eject improperly. Since then, almost every time it ejects improperly in the middle of a file transfer! I have to try many times to repair it with Disk Utility for it to work. The drive is stored at room temperature and has only been 'transported' a few times. However, the hard drive is now sounding like it may be broken. Also the external hard drive's USB port is not tight enough so the USB 'B' end can jiggle around.

I cannot recommend this hard drive even for this price since one small cable movement, without a full disconnect, can render this HD virtually useless since it keeps ejecting itself.
