First up this is a 2.5" laptop size HDD in a case, it supports USB 3.0 and is backwards compatible with USB 2.0.
It is bus powered so no need for a plug socket/power supply (which is a bonus!) and is very compact in size.
Slightly bigger than a box of 20 cigarettes.
Out of the box it is NTFS formatted with bloatware and trial software on the root, great if that's your thing but I formatted it straightaway in to two partitions (924GB & 886GB =1810GB ) which is the default size you gain from a 2TB drive (bits versus bytes etc).

As for speeds, I am currently copying over 300GB+ of video files for back-up and copying them from a Seagate SATA III HDD, I am getting 58MB/s write speeds which is not lightning fast, but compared to USB 2.0 it is more than acceptable, it's taking around 7 minutes per 32GB.

I have not tested the read speeds, but they are insignificant in my opinion and they will almost certainly be higher than 58MB/s.

Overall a lovely little compact drive you can take anywhere and just plug & play.

I certainly recommend it, and as always, top notch service from OCUK :)
