Backwards compatible with USB 2.0; External (Plug Powered) Hard Drive.

Here's a review from an Amazon customer:


4.0 out of 5 stars Useful capacity now matched with a useful speed, 9 Dec 2010
By Dr. D. M. Hunt - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)
This review is from: Verbatim 47659 USB 3.0 External 3.5 Inch 2TB HDD (Personal Computers)
I have a multitude of external USB2 and a few eSATA drives, on the lookout for a couple more drives, I thought I'd give this new fangled USB3 a go.

The drive is fast, I compared it to a USB2 drive, the data rate starts at around 130Mbyte/s and declines to around 80Mbyte/s at the end of the disc.

A Western Digital MyBook on USB2 started at 22Mbyte/s and ended at 22Mbyte/s.

This drive takes about five hours to format, vs. nearly two days for a USB2 drive of the same capacity.

Another interesting point, the CPU utilisation for the USB2 was around 10% and it was 0% for the USB3.

My only gripe with this product is that the cable is very short, a one metre cable should be standard, but it comes with what looks to be a 50cm cable, so it gets four stars.

That was a pleasant comment! I was merely pointing out that the price had dropped, this post above was an old post that I posted that by chance only just went hot today after 2 weeks and I redirected people to the fact it was cheaper. I don't need any glory thanks, just letting people know about a decent deal. Both posts were by me, this post here has been expired and the more recent one is active.

Merry Xmas

Do you really need to put not 2.0? as to me it came across it isnt backwards compatable, surly putting 3.0 should be enough.
