Simple robust looking and fast too

I bought this some time back not from flipkart. It's simple ext HDD without any fancy design elements almost managing to look like a blackberry phone kept backside up.

There are lot of factors affecting read-write speeds of a HDD, so don't entirely blame it. In fact, very simple example is not to connect your HDD through ext...

BUYERS BEWARE: Write speed of only 17.5 mB/s!

This HD has write speed of only 17.5 mB/s at max. Really disappointed. The whole point of having large storage is to copy vast amount of data. But with such speed in writing it takes huge amount of time to copy your data.

The read speed is about 35-40 like the other reviewer mentioned.

Should have gone with usb3.0 :(
