*feeler for now because need to get the replacement drive and transfer the files first. Will keep on hold and only accept payment after files are transferred and this drive is ready to go.

I have one of these as well: it's a pretty decent drive.
If you're not too bothered by the warranty, you can crack it open and use it as an internal drive.

Yeah on hold for this carbie

@Pyro considering warranty is still 1.5 years+ i'd rather not open it. Organizing an internal drive already.
