This is the current drive I want to connect to my laptop:

Thanks Dwarf, I'll give it a shot then. :)
I made a recent bought from the same brand and I am impressed. Its metal enclosure is the best I've seen, and it feels sturdy and very well done.

After I receive it, I'll provide the feedback.

Again, thanks for the great help!
