“Do not buy Freecom portable Hard Drives HD”

Written on: 12/11/2012 by Leicaflex (1 review written)

The drive will not operate after you unmount it. When you plug it back in, it isn't recognized. Wipe it, start over, then unmount, then wipe it again and start over. Forget customer service. Forget the forums. I barely used this drive... and really, I mean I "barely" used it. Owned over a year but never used. In the garbage it went. … Read Full Review

Non standard connector on the case, and Freecom don't sell replacement cables, so if you lose the supplied cable, all your data is lost. Buy something else… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/04/2009 by colinmorgan1 (1 review written)

My experience with freecom external drives is not good. Cheap but edging towards the nasty i am afraid. Not the design - the design is good, well, it at least looks good, but the reliability of Freecom is very much in doubt. Stick to the reputation boys me thinks!… Read Full Review

“I think Freecom Mobile Drive Classic 160GB is good...”

Written on: 12/01/2008

I think Freecom Mobile Drive Classic 160GB is good because it's cheap and cheerful. The Usb cable is not very long. Works fine for me on both a laptop and desktop (front usb ports).
Being a 2.5" design is much more portable than bigger 3.5" based solutions… Read Full Review

“I bought the Freecom Mobile Drive Classic 160GB...”

Written on: 19/12/2007 by tcsr205 (21 reviews written)

I bought the Freecom Mobile Drive Classic 160GB because I thought my PC was about to die. I took it out of the box, plugged it in to the front USB port and off it went. Perfect. Windows found it straight away and withing an hour I'd backed up all my photos and documents and I felt safe. That's where the wheels started to come off it.

An hour or so later I wanted to back up another file. So, I plugged the drive in and tried to access it. It threw up a message saying 'this drive is not… Read Full Review

Tcsr205's Response to tcsr205's Review

Written on: 28/12/2007

Update on this. My computer decided that it would not access the drive at all. I spoke again to the manufacturer of the drive and they told me it was definitely a problem with power. In fact, there is a note about this on their web site saying that anyone with this problem could get a free power supply sent to them. They sent me one which arrived the next day and completely fixed the problem. However, I also found out that the issue about not being able to boot the PC while the drive is plugged in can be fixed by going in to the computer's BIOS and disabling the USB legacy setting. Unfortunately by BIOS does not have that as an option because it's quite old. So, I'm stuck with having to leave the drive unplugged until I need it.
