They got it to me Tuesday...... anyways.. it's really nice! The wife can use it... she cannot use anything without making a big deal out of technology...
I am very happy with being able to back up docs, photos, videos.... and having good space for it....
Though they have other sizes, 4TB is good. I am not backing whole systems... though it sure could.
having bought the extra long cable extra (10ft), about $3.00 was well worth it too.... the little 2 foot cable that came with it was just too short.
the drive is a little larger than a pack of smokes. only uses power from the usb cable. comes in 4 different colors.
