    So basically you pay around 15-20% extra just to have a capacity gauge on the drive when you can easily monitor the capacity via your operating system anyway?
    Not worth it in my oppinion.
    Don’t know about anyone else but I hardly even SEE my external hard drives. They are kept on a shelf away from any heat from the PC. So the gauge is completely useless for me.

    thats it in a nutshell. one has the guage leds for capacity and the other model doesnt. i wonder what effect the leds/diodes have on the circuit as opposed to not having them? i would think the leds will require more current and wind up with it running at a higher temp, which long term will slowly cook the components causing them to go out of tolerence. Long term the one with leds will fail.

    @know it all. You clearly no nothing about LEDS then if you think that. Go do some research before making comments.
