It had been working fine, but then suddenly my laptop has stopped recognising it and I have been unable to get any of my data off it since. I have looked into this issue and found that it is a very common problem with these hard drives and no one seems to be offering any help or advice on how to sort this.

      Works well, Beautiful product, Would look into others before purchasing.

      Pros: - Faster than normal Hard drives. - Beautiful Design - Solid construction Cons: - Should have just gotten Solid State Drive (faster). - I get they Pros: - Faster than normal Hard drives. - Beautiful Design - Solid construction Cons: - Should have just gotten Solid State Drive (faster). - I get they were going for a sharp design, but edges should be dulled in my opinion. Too sharp. - Comes with stylish rubber feet that come off immediately, stupid decision on whoever proceeded with this design.

      Terrible

It consistently unplugs itself, if I move it even a tiny bit then no chance, quite often even when it's stationary, I'll come back and find an unexpectedly ejected message. Portable? It's not even good enough to stay still let alone move. Useless, very very disappointed.

      juxtaposed product - looks strong but it's flimsy

      Really stylish looking product with an exterior that looks like it could take on an apocalypse but in reality, it's super flimsy - a slight movement and the dis Really stylish looking product with an exterior that looks like it could take on an apocalypse but in reality, it's super flimsy - a slight movement and the disk ejects itself, rather annoying. Really had hoped design could mix well with hardware. Sadly this may very well be my first and last Porsche tech product. Besides that, it does what its suppose to do.
