Beware everyone I have serious problems with the Verbatim 1.5 Tb external hardrive The first drive was faulty and then the second drive has blown up basically. I have a surge protector and all my other computer equipment is fine - so i think there is a serious problem with this kit. I even tried to get a new power lead and see if i could recover anything from drive - but appears to be completely fried!!! I would avoid. It may be cheap, but what good is cheap when you lose all your data!

Hmm. I had been thinking about this drive, all of the reviews I have seen so far are favorable. Thanks for relating your experience with it. Any other people having problems with this drive before I run out and buy one?
