By unboxing this beautyful device I am noticing the very sharp-edged case and this reminds me of my felt pads bulk pack from the hardware store. This bulk pad contents this felt pads in several sizes, also in a small format properly for my hard disk Drive.
So I take a few of them and paste it under the casing to protect my little white gloss painted desk against scratches.
You get scratches already by slide this casing on the desk. Have a look on my image with the modified bottom of the cases on the right side.
My Sony VAIO notebook unfortunately has no USB 3.0 ports, but three USB 2.0 ports. The possible speed of the hard disk drive I cannot use with it, but I am planning to buy a new notebook in the maybe next year.
But anyway saving and loading files or running portable apps e. g. Firefox Portable or Notepad++ is comfortable fast and silent.
After the startup procedure first of all I have copied all data from the older hard disk drives to this new one as a backup. Although this procedure has needed hours cause of my notebook has no faster USB 3.0 but much slower USB 2.0 ports only, it became warm to the touch only. That´s surely by curtesy of the three millimeter thick aluminium casing!
All advantages of this external hard disk drive you will find on the next page ...
