Pretty speedy for an HDD drive! Those things used to never go past 55MBS so times are a changing!

Still working after a year?

Danny Rice says:

It’s a great thing to have, but I cannot justify £122. The one TB to me is at a more appealing price range. Great high quality video, keep it up!

If the USB controller is dead, Can we remove it and attach it to a caddy? I am afraid the new toshiba external harddrive do not have SATA controler anymore. Just USB like WD.

Luis Santos says:

So much space in such a small size, but it doesn’t have an independent power source, could this be a problem?

Does ‘premium’ indicate anything special with regard to build quality? I want a drive that can be used for long-term storage with the least likelihood of mechanical failure. Thanks.
