Score 8.0/10
Good points:
I use it to back up my desktop,but it's small & light,would fit in a trouser or jacket pocket or ladies handbag.The capacity is what i wanted & fine for me.I haven't had it long enough to comment on reliability or long term performance but so far,no problems.
Bad points:
I had to change the format but not really a big issue.Bad point is the usb cable,only about 30 cm,it will not reach my desk so it's standing on the pc tower.It wouldn't work for me from a usb extension but ok from the tower.

Tricia, London Hopefully I'm Helpful

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
It's small and portable and sleek looking and excellent value for money if you only need something of this capacity. This was by far the best value on the market at the time I purchased the device.
Bad points:
If you wish to transfer files of over a certain size (anything over 4gb, i.e. uploads from your digital camera etc) you will need to reformat this drive. The drive comes in a FAT32 format wheras you require NTFS formatting for these large files. Basic instructions are in a file on the drive itself which were helpful but not complete for my own system so a little technical knowledge is helpful if you need to do this. Otherwise you could run the risk of deleting things you really don't want to! If you just plan to use it for smaller files you'll be absolutely fine... If there is any chance you will need to do a reformat you'll be safer doing it immediately.
