Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Cable

Cable:
"The system to attach the cable is hard to use, I just gave up on keeping trying :("
_
"There is either a faulty cable or hard drive."
_
"I love it, the only problem I have with it is that the cord is a bit too small, so I end up buying an extension."
_
"I chose this tough-looking product because I love the way it holds its own cord, and my expensive Seagate drive became useless because the darn socket for the plug gradually failed from fatigue."
_
"This is my 2nd Silicon Power drive (my 1st was a 1TB drive I bought in 2012) - I like this one even better - it got the dog test almost immediately (My terrier grabbed the USB cable and pulled it to the floor, Grrrrrrr) and suffered no damage."
_
"It doesnt use the new weird flat USB 3.0 cable but a regular USB type A connector on both ends."
_
"Great, easy to use, comes with its own cord that is USB, and it stows right on the unit."
_
"Could use a longer cord but that is easily fixable."
_
"Performs well, but I don't like the fact it comes with it's own cable which has a USB on BOTH sides."
_
"no complaints other than the relatively short length of the cord but that is very minor."
_
"Love the cable management and the rugged feel!"
