RD & DJ, South Africa. 1 April 2016

I am very impressed with the drive. I have a MacBook Pro and as expected, the drive was formatted with NTFS. I reformatted it with exFAT and use it on my Mac and on Windows (Bootcamp).

The drive is solid, fast and has a very thick and sturdy usb cable. The rubber cover is nice as you don't have to worry about dropping the drive, or scratching your table etc. Just drop the drive in your laptop bag and go.

As always, fast and good service from takealot too.

Gareth, South Africa. 29 December 2014

Great drive. Unusual outer covering with fantastic feel. Can't go wrong with Transend.

Sean, South Africa. 31 December 2014

Always great product at a good price. Quick delivery.

Jason, South Africa. 17 June 2015

Fast, affordable and rugged. And a bargain when on a daily deal! Well worth it! I have two of these now, and recommend them to my friends, too.

Alain, South Africa. 30 June 2015

It will not transfer to or from an Apple Mac ( Although listed in the description)

I am told that one will need NTFS for Mac to be installed on the Mac for this to be done, at a cost

Antje, South Africa. 25 January 2017

Like the fact that it's protected by a thick plastic cover and has a three year guarantee

Brannon, South Africa. 6 September 2016

Really well made and has a nice feel to it.
Chose this model for the Rugged build and 3 year Warranty. Nice and fast as well.
Lets hope it lasts longer than Samsung and Toshiba drives!!

Annalize, South Africa. 3 July 2015

I've had mine now for almost 2 years. Fast, efficient and durable (not prone to self-destructing from the slightest bump like other externals). Haven't had any problems. Would buy another one.

Abu, South Africa. 7 November 2014

Very rugged, has been thrown around a bit by my toddler and it is still working 100%.
I bought it due to it ruggedness and it does not disappoint
Looks great and has nice rubbery feel to it.
USB 3 is lightning fast.It comes with backup software , which I haven't and probably won't use.
Overall great product

James Smith, South Africa. 21 October 2016

Excellent quality! Transcend seems to be the only hard drive I haven't had an issue with. I use it to run my Windows OS (boot camp) for my MacBook Air with super fast connectivity. And of course it helps that it's been military drop tested and has a 3 year warranty.

Joanne, South Africa. 12 November 2014

Great Plug and Play product. Easy to use and works efficiently and quickly with Mac products.

Zechariah, South Africa. 28 February 2017

Great, the protective features and the included software are great. Plug & Play with Android.
Only gripe is that it has auto power saving so goes to sleep when not in use, but that can be changed depending on the technical know how.

Cornelia, South Africa. 27 March 2017


Melissa, South Africa. 6 March 2017

Good sturdy product.

Carno, South Africa. 27 March 2017
