I have used this product for:6-12 months
Expertise:intermediate
# of SAMSUNG products I own:3-5
Pros: Inexpensive, Lightweight
Cons: Poor quality, Did not meet expectations
I have had two of these fail in less than one year. The first would tell me to check disk every time I plugged it in, and every time I tried to move files. Everything was visible until you clicked on something then it needed scanned and formatted again. I sent it back for replacement and the next just was blank after a reboot, and needed formated. Good thing I only had 150G of information on it.

Cons: Poor quality, Did not meet expectations
1. First day, bought new and use less than 2 hours to backup my data. The harddisk is dead. Disconnect and reconnect back to PC and my pc ask for reformat. Die after reformat.
2. Second day, exchange another ext drive (same model) from the dealer. Plug in to the pc can detect and driver loaded automatically . Open the windows explorer to look for the drive. No drive can see after the driver loaded. I have to wait for a minute then I can see it. Go to portable to open the harddisk folder, my PC is hang up and the folder cannot open at all. Try to other pc (company pc) also same. Try to use other brand (Seagate, WD) ext harddrive work fine.
3. The quality of this drive is very bad. Not recommaded to use it as backup. I would like to ask to the refund and return it back.
