    Simplicity in true form.

    The drive arrived and was unpacked from its box. I connected the drive to its cable and then plugged the cable into the USB port on my laptop and, Poof!, I had a new 1TB drive of storage space. That’s it. That’s all I had to do.

    The drive comes with pre-installed backup software — full then incremental — which you DO NOT have to download and install onto your computer, it’s all self contained. If all you want is to drag and drop files then you can do that, too.

    I was able to back up about 7.5 GB of data in half an hour which isn’t bad for an external USB drive using USB 2.0 since I don’t have USB 3.0 available at this time.

    The unit itself measures 4.5″ X 3″ X 0.75″ and comes with a 17″ cable. Power for the drive comes from the USB port. My machine is a Toshiba Satellite A105 using Windows 7 Pro.

    The drive is simple, compact, and does exactly what it’s supposed to do without any complaints.

    It.Just.Works!

    I hope this review will be helpful for those wondering if the drive is Mac-compatible, since that isn’t mentioned anywhere in the product description.

    This drive was absolutely painless to set up… it’s formatted for Windows, but reformatting for Mac is very simple. Plug it in, it pops up on your desktop. Go to Disk Utilities (utilities folder in Applications), choose the drive, then Mac from the drop-down format menu. It reformats the drive quickly and easily.

    File transfer is very fast on my MacBook Pro, and it works seamlessly with Time Machine for backups (just choose it as your backup disk when you open the application). The fact that the drive is “future-ready” for USB 3.0 is also a big plus.

    This review is from: Hewlett Packard HP Portable 1 TB USB 3.0/2.0 External Hard Drive (Personal Computers)
    Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program (What’s this?)

    This is a light, sleek, extremely affordable portable hard-drive, perfect for the on-the-go business traveler or even as a desktop storage solution. It’s hard to believe that 1 TB of storage can come in such a slim package for such a low price. The drive fits in my breast pocket.

    By comparison, this week I bought a Seagate FreeAgent Go-Flex 1TB external hard-drive that’s priced the same (at least at the discount wholesalers where I shop). However, it’s much bigger, bulkier, and is powered by an adapter rather than getting it’s power from USB port, the way the HP does. On top of that, the Seagate constantly ejects itself, runs hot, and doesn’t power off when the computer shuts down. It has been a pain-in-the-butt from the get-go.

    But the HP has been a pleasure from the instant I opened it from the box and plugged it in. It’s fast, slim, easy-to-use, and gentle on the credit card. And since I’m not a tech-head, those are exactly the qualities I am looking for in a storage solution. It’s USB 3.0-ready and it comes with a 2-year, limited warranty. What more do you need to know? I love it and I’m sure you will, too.
