What do you think about these portables?

These are external slim portable HDD. How do they pack a 2TB HDD into such a small case? Does that affect heat build-up in a negative way?  How do these slim portables compare for reliability to external HDD in larger cases?

Thanks for the helpful advice so far.  I will respond soon.
