from Roseburg, OR

Using this as an external backup drive in a Plugable USB 3.0 SATA Hard Drive Lay-Flat Docking Station; this combo is hot swappable, and works for my needs. Keep 1 drive in a fire-safe storage box. So far, the drive meets my expectations. (5-Stars would require that the drive have my coffee waiting for me in the morning, or something similarly awesome.) :)
