My company's CIO hauls one of these things around with him, in a smaller capacity, for whatever reason. I never really thought of an external hard drive as a portable solution because, well, it's a freaking HARD DRIVE. I came of age in the 1980s, when you were paying two hundred bucks a meg and if you even looked at the thing sideways, you ended up with scratched plates and a lot of green down the tubes. (If you're old enough to remember when there was a "park" command you could issue to a hard drive to make it SLIGHTLY safer to transport...!) I figured, okay, Amazon, you're going to give me half a terabyte free? I'll do something I'd never have the guts to do with a hard drive I bought... treat it like my CIO treats his. So whenever the laptop comes home with me (and then goes back to work), I toss this guy in the laptop bag with no special treatment. I should mention my car's shocks suck, as well. And so far... not a blip. Granted, I'm still keeping copies of everything on here in another place just in case, but this guy has taken all the abuse I've thrown at it and kept on ticking. And to be able to have my entire music collection with me at work? Fantastic! As long as this thing doesn't have a catastrophic failure, I can recommend it without hesitation...and even if it does, well, you're probably not abusing it the way I am. Unless you're my company's CIO.
Have tried 7" tablets before; well worth the extra price; have the samsung galaxy phone so learning curve very fast given my age (68)...just wish it had a facetime app or equivalent. text+ app makes it a great phone
This shoe is much more comfortable than I expected - It's hard to tell I'm wearing bike shoes when off the bike. I do not hear the cleat scraping the ground like I've read in other reviews. After tinkering a bit with cleat position I find these to clip in and release with ease and haven't had any mishaps leading to a fall yet - they stay locked in during various street and trail use. They are well designed, built with quality, priced appropriately, comfortable, nicely ventilated and are highly functional on and off road. I use them with the Shimano PD-M545, which came with the SH-51 cleats. These are my first clip in shoes and pedals and I couldn't be happier as a beginner. I was so worried I'd have a few embarrassing falls my first time out, but so far I haven't had a single incident.
