Thanks guys. Anyone own the freecom mobile drive mg portable hard drive? I really like the look of this. I own three other freecom hard drives none have let me down in the last 5 years. I'm skeptical of buying this ultra slim hd and I can't find many reviews.

Gets mostly good reviews, one guy had a busted USB socket - seems to be
an issue on a few other Freecom 2.5 drives !
Looks great but it's expensive for a portable 5400rpm.
I would try to find a 7200rpm version or buy a Hitachi 7200rpm and a USB3.0
enclosure from IcyBox or similar, save yourself 20-30 bucks.

I just did this.
