(UPGRADED)

The entire purpose of this drive is an environmental safety. I backup my data to it once a month, then it is stored in a fireproof, waterproof lock box.

It runs a bit slow, but I expected as much from an archive drive. I would recommend this to anyone that has a similar need. It would not be quite so reliable as a primary storage drive, and likely much worse as a system drive.

Huge capacity but slow, but good enough for storage movies, music for my HTPC needs.
