  • Pros:
    price quality ratio is great
  • Pros:
    metallic surface looks sleek
  • Pros:
    small and super portable
  • Con:
    disconnects from mac if not plugged directly
  • Con:
    need to reformat for mac

im quite happy with it. looks great and works like a charm from the beginning. my only beef with it is that if it is not directly plugged into the computer, it keeps on disconnecting. for a mac user this can be a pain, since apple in all its wisdom decided that the less usb ports the better, meaning i have to give up either my keyboard or my mouse in order to connect it.
