First of all...I am deeply disappointed with my Buffalo MiniStation external HD. It's just 1 year old plus and it died once in June this year and nao it died again for the second time and for the last time yesterday. Don't even try to ask me about the warranty coz I don't even know how long is the warranty since I've already throw the box away ever since I was to leave M'sia for Indonesia few months back. (Too much luggage so little hand...)
What's worst was the fact that even my old Seagate is still alive after many many many years while the "young" Buffalo MiniStation just poof liddat. And twice on the same year at that...Shall never ever buy Buffalo brand again. Maybe there's that possibilities that I happen to get the defect one among so many others produced...But meh...once is enough of trying when it comes to hardisk. *sobs*
Therefore yesterday I went to research for new external HD. It comes down to either Seagate Backup Plus or Western Digital My Passport. Although there's not much diff in between these two and that these two brand are also famous for their HD, but in the end I opt for Seagate coz I read from somewhere that it's more future proof. It has USB 3.0, Firewire and also Thunderbolt whereas WD My Passport only comes with the USB 3.0. Hmm...although I'm not using either Firewire or Thunderbolt for nao, I still think that there's no harm in getting it since I'm planning to buy new laptop soon. So in case you don't bother about a HD that is future-proof, you can go for WD My Passport HD. Price wise these both doesn't differ much. At least here in Jakarta the difference is only about 20-30. So yeah...see which interest you more.
I'm loving the box material so so much. I love the matte feel to it though I don't know what's the use since it'll just sit forever in one of my drawer...LOL. But still I can't help but to compliment on the box material...hohoho.
Loving the design as well as the texture on the HD. It looks so elegant and much more beautiful compared to my old Seagate HD. Currently am very satisfied with it...Hopefully this feeling will last. Hehe...and oh...it has the ability to backup your Facebook pictures too...But since I'm not interested to store my Facebook pictures onto my HD, so guess I'll skip on the apps for that...
Bye for now...gonna format the HD before using...Good night!
