The software included with the drive is simple, yet impressive. The AutoBackup software works great. It runs in the background and is there for anything I may need to recover. The Internet Drive enticed me but I cannot justify paying for that little amount of storage when I am already backing up to an expensive hard drive. The hardware was nothing that I would lose sleep over. The eSata despite getting low scores in HD Tune rose above the rest in the real world file transfer. The USB came in second and then the FireWire crawling in with the slowest transfer speeds. I was in love with the blazing fast transfer of the eSata almost matching the speed of the internal hard drive. The modules are a nice touch allowing for future expansion. This drive really shines thru for the large amount of storage space and the fast transfers making those long backups not so agonizing.
One thing of note is the On/Off Button has a sensor to control the power of the unit. It took me several tries holding my finger there for up to 20 seconds each time before it would turn on or off. It would have been better to just place a switch on the unit instead, as this is to finicky to be used on a regular basis.
