Just got one of these. Not as compact as I expected, but good value for money. Cheapest 500GB (unformatted size) I could find.
Recommend it for backing up etc. Its got a Samsung HM500LI inside, SATA type.
Below is the description from the website. At this price, its cheaper that buying just the drive it self!
Labelled as NoTouch (TM)
Comes with Software on the drive itself, which I have not used yet...
Hope this is of some use.
