Clayton, Wrexham, North Wales Teacher and Photographer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Cool looking, slim design and the blue LED strip at the top is a nice touch to what is otherwise a slim and shiny black tablet.Easy to carry around from one location to another.
Bad points:
Shortly after I bought this I found that had I spent just a little more I could have found devices with double the capacity. Having said that, 500Gb is plenty for my needs for now and will take a long time to fill.

David, Wales

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Fairly simple to use, and reasonably good value. I was able to backup my Windows 7 based laptop and my vista based PC easily.
Bad points:
One has to reinstall the software before each use, and I couldn't get it to back up my Windows XP based laptop, it wouldn't recognise it as NTFS, but that's probably the laptops fault.
