Last Friday(1st July 2011) i got my 1TB Transcend StoreJet external hard drive which was ordered from LetsBuy.com. After one week of its use i am writing this review.
Style and Design
Checking out its style, it got a pretty neat and stylish purple look. It is built with a triple-layer protection to ensure that the data is safe even if the drive is accidentally dropped. This 2.5- inch length external hard disk incorporated with a brilliant purple anti-slip rubber enclosure, it includes a reinforced hard casing that evenly distributes the force of an impact, and an internal hard drive suspension damper. The drive is powered by USB and there is no need of external power. It is also equipped with an extremely convenient OneTouch auto-backup button, which lets you instantly backup and synchronize data with your computer.
- Super speed USB 3.0. (yes, it is backward compatible with USB 2.0)
- Bandwidth up to 5 Gbits/s. (in USB 3.0)
- Shockproof/ anti-slip design.
- Meets U.S military drop test standards.
- Plug and play(No driver needed).
- 256-bit AES file and folder encryption.
- Power saving sleep mode.
As i started using this, it is likely similar to the previous Transcend hard drive i had. The first thing is to register the product via online for the 3 year warranty. As for now i had only USB 2.0 in my laptop, the transfer speed while transferring a file is 24MB/s using Tera copy, which is good! It also comes with a Elite software(Windows) which lets you to manage synchronization. The MRP of this external hard drive is 9K, but i got it online for 4K( that is very cheap for an awesome drive like this) So as to conclude, this is one stylish, secure and portable hard drive with a good reasonable price. For anyone who is looking for a high capacity portable hard drive, i would totally recommend this.
