Ordered one 4 days ago and it arrived today, cracked open the case and all the tabs snapped instantly off (I guess I lack finesse lol). Pulled the drive out, cloned my netbook's hard drive and it is now running in my laptop just fine. On initial boot and for a few minutes after initial boot there was a lot of noise coming from the hard drive but once I reset all the HDD optimizations in windows the noise stopped. Overall, happy with the cost given it is a 1TB drive in 2.5" form factor that actually fit inside my netbook. Space is nice when carting around a movie and video collection for children =)

How did you open it? I am having a hard time trying to figure that out.

If you look at the case itself you will see a plastic piece that seems to wrap around it. closely look at the seam where it meets the other plastic. On one of the sides you should be able to spot a portion of a tab or at least the plastic trimmings of a tab just barely, I then took a screw driver and wedged it next to the tab area and started prying it apart, I got the enclosure to just start to come off without ruining the first tab when I suddenly heard a snap - at that point I knew I had cracked a tab elsewhere and just promptly went to ripping it open.

As far as pulling the drive out - gently pull up on one of the corners with rubber inside and once it is slightly up you can gently pull it off and away from the sata connector and usb board.

You should be fairly safe while wedging the screwdriver in. If the screwdriver doesnt wedge itself you probably need to flip it over as other than the initial push in there wasn't much difficulty. I would go with a smaller sized screwdriver if you can find one too btw.

I picked up one of these Touro drives but it was a 2gb for $69 at Office Depot a couple f weeks ago. No problems with it so far. I use it to stream DVD files via USB to my Blu-Ray player
Are they portable?

Got mine today. Glad its small and easy to hide. Slightly larger than my Galaxy S2 so thats good. Mostly gonna store movies and what not and my "special" stuff. Big Grin

I noticed if I used my USB 3.0 extension cable it made a beeping noise and wasn't being properly detected. Same with my USB 2.0 cable. Guess I have to always directly connect it to the port.
