Came as expected - and used with a sabrent usb adapter. However, windows on MS surface did not recognize the drive at first (as it usually does when usb devices are plugged in),.and the drive had to be initialized and formated. (Not sure if this is normal, or due the USB connector....which.was not fully compatible with Raspbian on a Pi). Drive is now being used to boot.up a.raspberry pi - unfortunately only operating at USB2 speeds - however, this due to the usb cable).
Device is nice and lightweight.... Thinking to getting another for travel, but think it may need a case for protection due to the lightweight construction.
