No noise, better than 1 TB in speed compare

Rarely do we find gadgets performing true to their claims. This is an honest one! I run it on a Windows Vista and good to note that it makes no whining noises. The Plug and play mode is easy play. I always wanted preformatted drive. Some of my friends recommended that i should go for a 1TB capacity or even lesser because a 1.5 might be slow to load. But i don't mind it as long as it is assured of a reasonable speed for my home needs. Not just that, compared with a friend's 1 TB drive the speed of loading was almost the same. Instead of manually unplugging when i don't need it, a simple power switch could have been nevertheless better.
